America for Christ Offering 2016
Discipleship: Becoming More Like Christ
American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) is promoting the America for Christ (AFC) Offering 2016, which seeks to raise $1,250,000 to support American Baptist mission and ministry across the United States and Puerto Rico.
The AFC promotional window is January through March. This year’s theme—“Discipleship: Becoming More Like Christ” is based on Ephesian 2:10: “For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life” (NRSV). The theme is a wonderful biblical reminder that Jesus’ public ministry was all about engagement and compassion for people in need. Through the work of ABHMS, which is supported by the America for Christ Offering, we can participate with our Lord in serving our neighbors in our churches and communities.
What is the distribution of the total AFC Offering 2016?
The offering is distributed in three parts:
- 29% supports regional ministries
(ABHMS is the only mission board to share its offering with ABCUSA regions).
- 59% supports the ministries of ABHMS
(20% directly supports American Baptist Neighborhood Christian Centers)
- 12% supports the offering’s promotional and deputation costs
