As American Baptist Home Mission Societies’ (ABHMS) senior associate for Strategic Initiatives and Relationships, the Rev. Rothangliani R. Chhangte engages American Baptist congregations, regions and affiliated institutions in finding new ways to connect and collaborate to make a greater impact throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.
Invigorated by challenges, Chhangte notes that she is undeterred by today’s dwindling church attendance, church closings and increase of the “nones,” or individuals unaffiliated with religious denominations.
“ABHMS has a history of being in the forefront of mission work in the United States, and I am thrilled to be able to help explore new ways of doing ministry and mission at this particular point in time,” she says. “I am ready to help our churches find new ways of doing mission by reaching out to new neighbors with the love of Christ. I am excited about working with ABHMS to enhance its mission of cultivating Christ-centered leaders and disciples to heal and change communities.”
