Mobile Baptist Association

Please include the news and opportunities presented here in your bulletins, church newsletters, or on your bulletin boards.











Annual Church Profiles/Reports (ACPs) were mailed to church addresses Wednesday, August 1, 2018. 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 filling out the ACP.



Another academic year is approaching for collegians in Mobile County. Baptist Campus Ministries is looking forward to reaching, growing and sending collegians in and from Mobile County. Your congregation has an important role to play in reaching collegians. Every Mobile Baptist Association Church can have a ministry to and for collegians! Baptist Campus Ministries wants to assist your congregation in making an eternal impact in the lives of collegians. 

Below is a list of events/programs that we have developed to assist our congregations in making that eternal impact! We want to offer you the opportunities, resources and channels through which to impact the lives of college students. We have a Campus Prayer Event at the BCM Building coming up in early August that will be foundational in reaching collegians this year. In addition, as always, we have several opportunities for your congregation to connect with students here in Mobile County through our New Student Welcome Breakfast, Collegiate Survival Brunch, and the Church & Campus Connection Cookout. More information about each of these events/programs is listed below.

Please click on this link below and take three minutes to let us know about ways you want to partner to reach collegians.

If we can offer any other help, please let us know. We are available to do specialized training in collegiate ministry, lead ministry team trainings, or simply consult with your team concerning collegiate ministry issues or ideas.

Thanks for all you do to reach, grow and send collegians here in Mobile County!

In Him,

Rev. Jerrod Brown
Senior Campus Minister

God’s Purpose + Your God Given Purpose = Significance!

On Monday nights, starting August 20, 2018, you can join the movement.

Perspectives is a 15 week in-depth discipleship course that will change the way you view the world around you. Perspectives on the World Christian Movement will open your eyes to the heart and purpose of God, and how you can take part in His work all over the world - from the urban and suburban streets of Baldwin County to the rain forests and deserts of distant lands. Whether single, married, student, homemaker, children, men or women's ministry, you will explore God's heart for every tribe, tongue, and language that He has created and placed around us here at home and to the ends of the earth. 

After this course, your life may never be the same!!

You will learn from 15 Different Instructors over 15 weeks.  All of them excellent and all of them passionate about this course. They will challenge and inspire you with their wisdom and experience, opening your eyes to a deeper vision of God’s Mercy, Greatness and Love.

This course is not just for those going as full-time missionaries!

Find out what is your PURPOSE! It may be sending, welcoming, praying, supporting, and yes even going.
