Mission Summit 2017


Save the Date! The American Baptist Churches Biennial Mission Summit

will meet in Portland, Oregon, June 30-July 2, 2017.

A number of exciting events occur before and after the
official Mission Summit dates - so plan to come for the full event!


Church Sponsorship

American Baptist Churches are invited to register as Church Sponsors for the 2017 Biennial Mission Summit! Similar to 2015, once an ABC church has registered as a sponsor, an unlimited number of members from that church may register as individuals at a reduced individual registration rate. Church Sponsors will be listed on the Biennial Mission Summit website and in the event Program Book.

Click the button below to register as a Church Sponsor. Learn more about Church Sponsorship in a letter sent from Interim General Secretary Susan Gillies and Planning Team Chair Steve Bils. Registration for Church Sponsorship closes on March 15, 2017.

Church Sponsorship for the 2017 Biennial Mission Summit will be based on average worship attendance for each church, as follows:

  • Less than 100 members - $250
  • 101-200 members - $415
  • 201-500 members - $580
  • More than 500 - $745

American Baptist churches are invited to become Church Boosters by submitting the Sponsorship Form included below. Any church sponsoring the Biennial Mission Summit through a gift of $1,000 or more will be automatically registered as a Sponsor. We are grateful to many of our leading churches who contribute in this way!
