Thank you for your past participation in National Mission Partnerships through Baptists on Mission (BOM). After a strange COVID 2020, this past year saw quite a rebound with many teams serving in our national partner states. We expect 2022 to be even better! Lists of national projects for 2022 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. Open the list up to check out the possibilities. 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 – set calendar dates. Once you have talked with the requestor, let us know whether or not you will take the project. Remember to check back from time to time, as new projects are added weekly.
IMPORTANT: If you are already planning to return to one of our Partnership areas in 2022, please let us know. This is critical in evaluating how effective our Partnership efforts are. Thanks for helping us with this!
NATIONAL MISSIONS FACEBOOK PAGE: I encourage you to visit our 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
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. To see a list of projects, visit our website at: http://baptistsonmission.org/Missions/United-States/Appalachian-Coalfields
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 2022 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, but we soon anticipate expanding to new opportunities in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Please pray about your church's participation in this meaningful partnership. To see a list of specific requests, visit our website at: http://baptistsonmission.org/Missions/United-States/New-England

ROCKY MOUNTAIN: In 2022, 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 2022 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 the need for a sports clinic team. These will go fast, so check them out: https://baptistsonmission.org/Mission-Projects/United-States/Alaska

It would be my pleasure to work with you in securing one of these great ministry opportunities for your church or associational team for 2022. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give me a call or send me an e-mail.
