The latest news specifically for American Baptist Churches of Ohio.
What an amazing weekend! Our Ohio American Baptist Youth participated in the annual Dare2Share evangelism training conference March 6 and 7, 2015. Thousands of youth gathered in Grove City for a weekend of dynamic worship, powerful speakers and evangelism training. This was our eighth year partnering with Greg Stier and Dare 2 Share Ministries for an amazing time of sharing and celebration.
Following the Friday session, the American Baptist Churches of Ohio sponsored our annual After Party. It was a great time of fellowship, pizza, sharing and a devotion to conclude a great Friday!

Emerson and Ivy Wu of Karl Road Baptist in Columbus have been endorsed by American Baptist International Ministries to serve in Macau, a special administrative region of China, with the supportive partnership of Evangelize China Fellowship (ECF).
As IM Development Workers, the Wus strive to bring a new spirit to Macau. For a long time, Macau was known for its gambling casinos. Drug, alcohol and gambling addictions, crime and prostitution were rampant in this small congested region in which less than 1% of the population is Christian. However, under the new government, many changes are taking place. Better education and social service are two major areas that are creating opportunities for the younger generation. The Wus will serve in outreach to youth and college students and in the orphanage’s after-school program.
