Coming to this position affords me a grand opportunity to welcome you to our website and to ABCOTS. We are pleased to have you view us at this time in missions in denominational work, in our local congregations, in the 15 Southern states that make up the region and in the world as effective witnesses for Christ.
And what a time this is in our world and region! This is a time of crises, natural disasters, and triumphs all over our world! We want you to gain an understanding of our work in missions support, who we are as Baptists and more particularly American Baptists. Within these depictions, learn of our goals that undergird work around leadership training, disaster relief, refugee resettlement support, Christian education, support for missionaries, colleges and universities, social reform and new church planting.
We are region of the South, a diverse group of believers stretching from Maryland to Texas.
For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this? Esther 4:14
This is our time!
Dr. James M. Harrison
