North American Missions

"partner" \ˈpärt-nər - "one associated with another especially in an action" "a member of a partnership"

New Testament churches plant churches!  Any size church can partner with a church planter. Types of support include prayer, helping financially and sending short-term mission teams. Some churches even join together to partner with a church planter.  

The Missions Team helps connect ABSC churches with a) other ABSC churches who are willing for partner churches to join them in a North American work, b)  Arkansans and other SBC planters who are planting anywhere in North America and c) North American Mission Board SEND City missionaries 

The Missions Team is ready to help. If the area you are interested in is not listed below, contact us and we'll help you get connected anywhere God is calling.
