American Baptist missionaries Rick and Anita Gutierrez, are changing lives and making disciples in and around Durban, South Africa.
ABCCONN has developed a new policy statement on gun violence. The text is below and is availaable as a pdf document.
On December 14, 2012, violence engulfed our lives here in Connecticut. Because of this, we believe that it is our responsibility as people of faith and specifically as American Baptists to speak out on the issue of gun violence. We believe that human beings are God's creatures and as such we are called to live in peace until the natural order of life brings it to an end on this earth. As disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, we believe that we need to speak out when such unspeakable violence comes into our neighborhood.

American Baptist Churches USA is excited to announce the ABCUSA Matthew 25 Grant. Created through monetary gifts of a generous donor, this fund is designed to channel gifts to help meet the needs of "housing, feeding, education and health with regard to the less fortunate." The donor's primary wish is to help ameliorate poverty. The ABCUSA Matthew 25 Grant fund has been established to respond to this donor's generosity.
In order to be eligible for funds, ministries must have a relationship with American Baptist Churches. Awards from the fund will be disbursed twice a year, in April and in October, and the maximum amount given to any ministry will be $5,000 per disbursement. Due to the limited funds available, the application process will be competitive, with grants being awarded to organizations or churches that best exemplify the goal to help end poverty. A committee has been formed to review the applications and make the awards.
The application process is structured to help small ministries with limited staff time. Each applicant will need to complete a one-page form, and add a one-page explanation about the need for and uses of the funds. Ministries of any size that relate to ABC are welcome to apply, including local churches. The application deadline is March 1 for grants distributed on April 15, and September 1 for grants distributed on October 15. Applications may be found at www.abc-usa.org.
