Connect to the FutureBaptists Champions Network!
WHAT IS IT? The FutureBaptists Champions Network is composed of Baptist Christians from throughout North America who want to be part of launching a collaborative missional movement of Baptists committed to fulfill the Great Commission in the Spirit of the Great Commandment. They want to do this by working with and increasing the capacity of the Baptist denominational, paradenominational, and parachurch organizations, movements, and networks with which they are connected.
WHAT IS THE KEY QUESTION FOR DIALOGUE? What will characterize Baptists as a collaborative missional movement from the base of North America in the year 2064?
WHAT IS THE PROPOSAL? Let's generate a virtual dialogue that will take full advantage of the creativity and passion of Baptist Christians. Let's all who can gather in Philadelphia, PA, March 6-8, 2014, to have face-to-face dialogue as we launch this movement.
WHO CAN CONNECT? Any Baptist Christian in North America can connect. We are especially interested in people under 40 years old connecting and providing major insights for the dialogue. Click HERE to register for free.
WHAT DOES IT COST? It is FREE to connect with this network. This means no charge even though on the connection page you see credit cards listed. Ignore them.
CAN I SPONSOR THIS MOVEMENT? Individuals can help crowdfund this movement by making a donation. Go this the following this PAGE to donate:
WHO IS THE ORGANIZER OF FUTUREBAPTISTS CHAMPIONS? The North American Baptist Fellowship of the Baptist World Alliance is the sponsor. NABF is doing this on the occasion of its 50th anniversary.

We hope you will click the links above and connect with the FutureBaptists Champions Network! Let's start the dialogue about the future.
FUTUREBAPTISTS CHAMPIONS ACTIONS:
1. To pray for a vital and vibrant collaborative missional movement among Baptists throughout North America focused on local, regional, national, continental, and worldwide missional engagement especially by Baptist denominational, paradenominational, and parachurch organizations, movements, and networks based in North America.
2. To participate in an ongoing dialogue with FutureBaptists Champions around the overarching question of what will characterize Baptists as a collaborative missional movement form the base of North American in the year 2064? Many other more specific questions are appropriate and will arise that will shape this dialogue.
3. In the short-term, to consider supporting the live dialogue that will take place in Philadelphia, PA March 6-8, 2014 by being one the 500 to travel to Philadelphia for this event, and/or by participating before, during, and after this event in the virtual dialogue.
4. In the long-term, to support the efforts of Baptists organizations in North America with which the Champions are affiliated as they seek to be part of a collaborative missional movement over the next 50 years. This is based on the belief that the strengthening the capacity of Baptist organizations throughout North America to engage in a collaborative missional movement deepens and makes more effective not only each Baptist organization, but also the witness and impact of Baptist Christians through North America and the world.
5. To become knowledgeable of the missional stories of the diverse Baptist denominational, paradenominational, and parachurch organizations throughout North America through various channels made available, to pray for these missional efforts, and to learn from these ways to enhance various collaborative missional efforts.
6. To consider becoming FutureBaptists Champions sponsors who contribute annually a minimum of $50.00 [individuals] or $500.00 [churches] to support the ministry of NABF.
