ABHMS Welcomes New Executive Director
Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Johnson, ABCOPAD Regional Pastor With Congregations, spent the day at our ABC Mission Center in Valley Forge. He was there to welcome the incoming executive director of the American Baptist Home Mission Societies, Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Haggray. He will begin his ministry at ABHMS on November 1 following the 24 year tenure of the Rev. Dr. Aidsand Wright-Riggins, III, who will be retiring.
Pictured above are the Rev. Dr. Aidsand Wright-Riggins, III, present Executive Director of ABHMS, Jeff Johnson, and the Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Haggray, Executive Director-elect.
Pictured above are Jeff Johnson with the Rev. Dr. Clifford Johnson, Senior Pastor of the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Wilmington, Delaware and also President of the ABHMS Board of Directors, and the Rev. Dr. Alonzo Patterson who is Senior Pastor of the Shiloh Baptist Church in Anchorage, Alaska and Director of our ABC work in that state.
You will remember, when Jeff came on board to ABCOPAD five years ago, he retained his executive position with the American Baptist Churches USA as the National Director of Evangelism and New Church Planting under the auspices of ABHMS, a position in total he has now held for fifteen years.
