The Conference of Baptist Ministers in Massachusetts
has been promoting the union of usefulness of American Baptist clergy since 1829 - 186 years.
Though we have a rich history, we are facing challenging realities in the 21st century.
How do we promote the union and usefulness of the clergy in these new realities?
We are developing our programs and grants to be helpful in these new realities.
We are working to lead the clergy in thinking together about the new realities we face.
We are developing an active board to stay in touch with all our clergy.
We are building networks for mutual care and connection.
As the Executive Director of the Conference,
my mission is to think together with the clergy about developing a definition of our calling that will help us speak and live the Good News of Jesus in the new realities of our time.
What has come from our thinking together in the last few years about clerical leadership?
The Clergy will help the people of the church to be New Covenant community.
The Clergy will help the people to find their voices.
The Clergy will help the people to find their gifts for ministry.
The Clergy will lead the church to think about and speak to these new challenges.
