America for Christ Offering 2017
The theme for the America for Christ Offering 2017 is “Cultivating Leaders, Equipping Disciples, Healing Communities.”
Through the AFC offering the American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) partners with American Baptist Churches USA in answering God’s call to live out the Christian faith in transforming individuals, congregations and communities to develop networks and programs committed to nurturing Christ-centered leaders; and to promote witness and evangelism as well as discipleship and social justice.
The offering is distributed in three parts:
- 29% supports regional ministries (American Baptist Home Mission Societies [ABHMS] is the only mission board to share its offering with American Baptist Churches USA regions)
- 59% supports the ministries of ABHMS (20% directly supports ABHMS’ Neighborhood Action Program Christian centers)
- 12% supports the offering’s promotional and deputation costs
