New International Workers* Appointed

We are very pleased to announce that Bud and Lois, former NAB workers in Cameroon, are once again preparing to represent NAB in Asia. Bud and Lois will be serving as "Educators in Asia," and will be an encouragement to Nick and Iris as we expand Team NAB in this region. We would invite you to lift up this initiative in three particular areas—

1. For this year of preparation in which we seek our Father’s provision for entry visas, employment in Asia, and all of the practical details that must be sorted out.

2. For the building of Bud and Lois’ support team providing the spiritual and financial support for the work. Might the Father invite you to be a part of this team?


Leaders are readers. I don’t exactly know when or how this aphorism first trickled into my mind, but I know that over the years I’ve read or heard it repeatedly. So let me repeat it and give you the opportunity to let it sink in. Leaders are readers.

In this month’s communiqué on leadership, I want to share with you the titles of just a few leadership-oriented books that have significantly shaped the fabric of my thoughts and behaviors about leadership. To gain some additional balance, I’ve also asked the executive team at the North American Baptist International Office to give their short list. If you’d like, shoot me back an email listing those one or two books that have influenced your viewpoints on the practice of leadership.

Here's my list:



We invite you to participate in the NAB Fall Offering.

Our 2014 Fall Thanksgiving Offering’s theme is OVERFLOW. It reminds us that our purpose together is to go into this world, help others respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ and be baptized as his followers, and teach them to observe all that he commanded.


NAB Announcement

One of the most exciting and heart wrenching realities about missionary life occurs when a missionary’s objectives on the field have been fulfilled, and they come to realize it is time to leave that ministry in good hands. Christopher and Ingrid Kidd, North American Baptist missionaries to Brazil, have come to that moment in their missionary careers.


Triennial 2015

In less than a year, hundreds of pastors, missionaries, leaders, and delegates will gather in Sacramento, California, for the 2015 Triennial Conference. Registration materials will be made available this fall. Many though have started to ask questions about the location of Triennial. So here are some details to get you up to speed.
