Lists of national projects for 2021 are ready for your prayerful consideration. This includes projects for VBS, BYBC, Sports Ministry, Servant Evangelism, Construction, and more! Start by viewing and/or downloading the .pdf list of projects found at the top of each partnership webpage. Once you have identified a project you are interested in, contact our office to get contact information for the requestor. We will encourage you to talk with the requestor, ask all questions, and – if you both feel it is a good fit – calendar dates. Once you have talked with the requestor, let us know whether or not you will take the project.
NATIONAL MISSIONS FACEBOOK PAGE: I encourage you to visit our new national missions Facebook page and “like” us. The page will be dedicated to promotion of mission opportunities and urgent needs, as well as highlighting the good work that mission teams are doing. Here is the link, see you there!: https://www.facebook.com/NationalMissionsProjects
IMPORTANT: If you have already made plans to return to one of our Partnership areas next year, please let us know. This is critical in evaluating how effective our Partnership efforts are. Thanks for helping us with this!
APPALACHIAN COALFIELDS: The purpose of the Appalachian Coalfields Ministry is to minister both physically and spiritually to people in some of the poorest areas of our nation. The ministry covers the states of West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and North Carolina. Projects may include week-long service in sports, children’s ministry, evangelism, music, and/or construction ministries, etc. Mission opportunities may also include the collection, delivery, and distribution of needed items such as food, baby care items, clothing, school supplies, and more, which can be done in the course of a few days or over a weekend.

PENNSYLVANIA: The need for sharing Christ and furthering His Kingdom in Pennsylvania is great. Our teams serve alongside faithful church planters and pastors in rural, small town, and large urban settings. There is great excitement for what NC Baptist teams are contributing to the effort to reach people for Christ! Many good requests have already come in from Pennsylvania, including those for VBS, Backyard Bible Clubs, Community Surveys, Servant Evangelism, Sports Camps, and/or Construction. These projects will not last long! To see a list of specific requests visit our website at: http://baptistsonmission.org/Missions/United-States/Pennsylvania
NEW ENGLAND: The New England region has long been recognized as the most unchurched area in our nation. Despite that unwanted title, God is at work there and North Carolina Baptists are playing a part. Church membership is up, baptisms are up, and missions participation is up! In 2021 we will need teams to conduct music outreach, sports camps and clinics, prayer walking, block parties, VBS and backyard bible clubs, construction, and more. The majority of our projects take place in Vermont and Maine. Please pray about your church's participation in these two meaningful partnerships.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN: In 2021, NCBM will once again send teams to serve at the Mountaintop Baptist Assembly in Wyoming and the Inlow Baptist Camp in New Mexico. Cook teams of 8-12 are needed throughout the summer, and maintenance teams in the spring and fall. Our NC mission teams provide a critically needed service to these camps, which reach so many young people for Christ each summer. To see a list of projects, visit our website at: http://baptistsonmission.org/Missions/United-States/Rocky-Mountain We are also working on a construction project for the summer of 2021 somewhere in the Rocky Mountain area and will need several teams of 10-20 volunteers. Stay tuned!

ALAKSA: That’s right, we are once again sending teams to the “Last Frontier”! Alaska is alive with adventure - rough, rugged, and beautiful. The state is populated by hardy, independent folk. The majority of Alaskan Baptist congregations are small in number. Many are located in isolated areas. Things we take for granted in our churches are simply not available to many of theirs. Our participation in missions in Alaska provides needed resources, leadership, and possibly most importantly, - encouragement. Check out several construction opportunities, Vacation Bible School requests, and more. Check them out: https://baptistsonmission.org/Mission-Projects/United-States/Alaska
HAWAII: In 2021, teams and couples will once again serve at the beautiful Puu Kahea Baptist Conference Center on the island of Oahu. Teams will complete any number of maintenance, cleanup, or construction projects the week they are there. Couples will serve as camp volunteers, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, landscaping, lawn care, etc. Couples doing this will need to commit to at least one month. This is challenging, but rewarding service! To see a list of projects, visit our website at: https://baptistsonmission.org/Missions/United-States/Hawaii-Pacific
It would be my pleasure to work with you in securing one of these great ministry opportunities for your church or associational team for 2021. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give me a call or send me an e-mail.
