AMERICAN BAPTIST MEN Celebrating 65 Years of Ministry


As we celebrate our 65th Anniversary, American Baptist Men of PA & DE believe so much in our theme of “Forging Servants & Relationships” that we are spreading the good news of Jesus Christ all over our region. We want more men and young men of not only our Baptist churches, but people of all faiths, and even those who are not sure about their faith to know about what we have to offer them. We want all men and young men to know about the inspirational and motivational spiritual resources that we share at our annual retreat at Shippensburg University the last weekend in July. This year it will be July 26 – 28, 2019. We also want them to know about our trailer ministry that is used for disaster relief in our region and surrounding states, as well as being used for church and community improvement projects, etc. And we are there to support our Churches and Men’s Groups in whatever help that they might need.

AB Men also believes that there is a new surge of men and young men that want to be involved in what we have to offer at our retreat, especially to our millenials. Our early registration deadline is May 15 for our best price of $175. at the retreat. Youth can still come for $75. (Discount Price) We will be hosting ten different events around the region during March and April to get the word out. At many of the events we will be showing an interview with Philadelphia Football Player, Zach Ertz, which is a part of a new DVD Bible study done by the Paul Tripp Ministries. We will be advertising this study at the retreat.
