Annual Church Profiles/Reports (ACPs) were mailed to church addresses Wednesday, July 31, 2019. Please look for your church's ACP and make sure the Church Clerk gets the packet. Completed ACPs are due September 4. This profile of your church is a very important task for your church statistics and leadership personnel to be properly documented for the Association, Alabama Baptist State Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention. If you have any questions, please contact the MBA office. Watch this video from Dr. Rick Lance about the importance of the ACP and why we do it. https://ricklance.com/2019/07/30/time-to-think-about-the-annual-church-profile/

Please take a few moments to let Baptist Campus Ministries know how your congregation would like to connect and partner to reach collegians in Mobile County this Fall. Students will be returning soon and BCM has a multi-faceted plan to reach, grow and send collegians. We exist to help our Mobile Baptist Association churches reach collegians in their spheres of influence. We welcome each of our churches to partner with us in connecting with college students this fall.

This short survey and information form will help us serve you better, communicate with you more clearly, and connect you directly to the college campus. Please help us by completing this form.

We look forward to working together to reach collegians in the future!

In Him,
Jerrod Brown
