American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware

ABCOPAD Foundation

In all my prayers for you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership. Philippians 1:4

We engage ‘locally’ with pastoral leaders and congregations to provide encouragement and resources to strengthen their ministry.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19-20a

We disciple ‘globally’ with missionaries around the world to support their work and physically serve with them as the hands and feet of Jesus.

But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you—see that you also excel in this grace of giving. 2 Corinthians 8:7

We give ‘generously’ when we join with other believers to do God’s work. We increase Christian unity and help the kingdom grow.


Since 1972, the American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware have shared together in presenting a witness for Jesus Christ. Though ministry styles have changed over the past 50 years, the focus and desire to share Jesus with others have not changed.

Many have gone before us, leaving their legacy of service and gifts that we might continue to serve today. Now, we need to plan for those who will come behind us. We need to be found faithful in leaving footprints for future generations that will encourage them to believe and inspire them for ministry tomorrow.

THE HARVEST ENDOWMENT was established to support the vision of the American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware (ABCOPAD) by providing current financial resources for our regional partners today while securing long-term assets for their future.

with our pastoral leaders, local congregations,
