American Baptist Personnel Services (ABPS) is a computer-based, data-storage-and-retrieval system that produces personnel profiles in order to assist professionally trained ministry leaders seeking new places to serve local congregations and denominational entities. ABPS also provides resources that enable local congregations to identify mission and leadership needs.
Standing fully in the spirit of American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS), ABPS provides useful information, shared openly and without bias, to support congregations in developing Christ-centered leadership, equipping disciples and healing their neighborhoods and communities. ABPS is committed to ABHMS’ values of integrity, stewardship, diversity, collaboration and teamwork.
ABPS works in partnership with ABCUSA regions to assist local church search committees utilizing the ABPS resource “Calling an American Baptist Minister” to better understand their congregations, mission and leadership needs. With this information, a search of the ABPS database can retrieve profiles of persons with the skills and experiences identified by the church.
All ministerial leaders in American Baptist Churches USA are encouraged to enroll in the profile system and to keep their profile updated so their ministry gifts are afforded broad and timely consideration. The ABPS Profile system can be searched for leaders educated and experienced in broad and diverse ministries. These searches are available to any affiliated American Baptist organization.
