ABHMS Volunteer Initiatives

Volunteer Mobilization Ministries facilitates individual volunteer missionary appointments, summer service opportunities, group mission experiences, specialized service projects and disaster response.

American Baptists have traditionally been people of action, giving freely of their valuable time and talents to help survivors of tragedy throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Striking recent examples include volunteer efforts in response to hurricanes Katrina and Rita in the U.S. Gulf Coast, where American Baptists and partners have logged countless hours of hands-on recovery work.

As we continue to emerge from the pandemic, ABHMS is preparing new mission trip opportunities for 2022. Check back soon for news of upcoming ABHMS-sponsored trips or email Lisa Harris Lee for more information.

Rebuilding, Restoring, Renewing Puerto Rico

Your gifts of time, energy and hands-on work are greatly needed and appreciated in restoring Corporación Milagros del Amor, Seminario Evangélico de Puerto Rico, churches, schools, missions and homes.
