The latest news specifically for American Baptist Churches of Ohio.
The ABC/Ohio Mission Encounters took place for two special days this summer. The first Mission Encounter was held on July 11, 2009 at the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Chillicothe. Rev. Walt White, an American Baptist International Ministries Global Consultant was the guest speaker. He gave details of his experiences traveling around the world and consulting with church leaders as they reach-out to those in their communities who do not know Jesus. He is an excellent resource for American Baptist congregations who wish to understand Islam and some of the forces shaping world events today. Recently Walt has been in Australia, Turkey, Singapore and other countries sharing with church leaders.
