General Baptist Ministries, based in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, exists to unite the efforts of various local General Baptist churches and regional associations. Policies are set and initiatives are approved by regional representatives to the Council of Associations. The Leadership Team of General Baptist Ministries then develops plans and programs to carry forward those policies and initiatives from the Council.

This unified effort allows human, spiritual, and financial resources to be pooled with the result that we are able to do together what otherwise would never be done alone.

Housed in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, our ministry center provides a base of operations for missions, church resourcing and communications. Because of our collective work missionary outreach to the world is coordinated in Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, Jamaica, The Marianas Islands, India, Niger, and The Philippines as well as through other partnerships with organizations in many other parts of the world. 

State-side our national missions department coordinates church plants and ethnic ministries in a number of states.

Church resourcing comes from conferences and events, local and regional training, coaching networks and consultation services.

Print communication comes from the General Baptist Messenger as well as through various promotional pieces. Digital communication occurs through social media outlets, a weekly blog, various websites that are maintained and a weekly e-mail news release.
