About Us


Our mission is to work together, being a network of creative ministries strategically assisting Southern Baptists in reaching the nations for Jesus Christ.


In 1985 several Southern Baptist missions organizations discovered one another and formed a fellowship, so that their ministries might encourage one another.


If you’d like your ministry to join our team on mission for Jesus, we would love to connect with you. Visit our Join page for more information.
