It is all about relationships is a phrase we have often repeated in Evergreen from the very beginning. We treasure the individual relationships we have, we rejoice at the growing relationships between churches and we are excited about the development of our caucuses and the intra-
Our name includes our relationship with other American Baptist Churches around the country. We are Evergreen Association of American Baptist Churches. As such that means we have responsibilities with 32 other Regions that make up the regional bodies of churches. Together we support the American Baptist mission in the Office of the General Secretary http://www.abc-
In addition there are other American Baptist Agencies which help us do our mission: American Baptist Women’s Ministries http://www.abwministries.org, the American Baptist Historical Society http://abhsarchives.org, and the American Baptist Foundation http://www.abcofgiving.org to name a few. We also have direct relationship with our seminary on the west coast, American Baptist Seminary of the West, http://www.absw.edu.
That’s a lot of relationships! It is an amazing family which accomplishes amazing things. Together, wonderful ministries are made possible! If any one of the entities stood alone, the work could not be accomplished; together God’s work is being done around the world. I hope you join with me in giving God thanks for these relationships. Next month I’ll write about even more relationships that we have, some of which are a bit closer to home.
