Important AFC Information

How is my gift to AFC 2023 making a difference?

Your generosity supports the mission of ABHMS—connecting our partners to cultivate leaders and equip disciples who bring healing and transformation to communities across our nation and Puerto Rico. Your contributions share God’s love by:

  • Cultivating Leaders: Strong leaders advance the mission of faith communities.
  • Equipping Disciples: Broadening the understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
  • Healing Communities: We believe the power of Christian love can—and will—change the world.

How is the AFC 2023 Offering used?

The offering is distributed in three parts:

  • 59% supports the ministries of ABHMS
  • 12% supports the offering’s promotional and deputation costs and
  • 29% supports regional ministries. (ABHMS is the only mission board to share its offering with American Baptist Churches USA regions.)
