Chaplaincy & Specialized Ministries
Applications now being accepted for national ministry awards
ABHMS is seeking nominations for four distinguished national ministry awards that honor American Baptist chaplains, pastoral counselors, spiritual directors and other specialized ministers for exceptional faithfulness in ministry in ways that manifest cultural sensitivity, generational inclusiveness, contextual relevance and missional appropriateness.
The National Network of American Baptist Chaplains, Pastoral Counselors and Specialized Ministers is a professional support and networking organization developed and sponsored by American Baptist Home Mission Societies. To encourage local networking and support, the association is divided into nine networks, coordinated by a liaison.
Membership in the network is open to all American Baptist chaplains, pastoral counselors, spiritual directors and specialized ministers—board certified or non-certified—who support our mission. All specialized ministry professionals are welcome.
For more information, please contact Rev. Dr. Patricia Murphy.
