International Ministries Theme: Empowering Partners and Personnel to Spread the Good News of Jesus Christ in Word and in Deed.

International Ministries and American Baptist Foundation invite proposals for projects that will ignite the passion of partners and personnel in God's mission to share the transformative power of the gospel of Jesus Christ beyond the borders of the United States and Puerto Rico. Proposals may focus on developing physical, spiritual, or relational capital for increased effectiveness in works of evangelism and discipleship, health, and wellness, economic and community development, and other ministries through which individuals and communities may experience healing and wholeness, and so that may know and see the glory of God's one and only Son, "who came from the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:14)

At this pivotal moment in the life of the church and the world, it's an appropriate time to echo the prophet’s query: “What does the Lord require of you?” from Micah 6:8. “He has shown you, oh human, what is good and what the Lord requires of you. But to do justice, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” 

ABHMS in this Palmer Grant Cycle is seeking projects that call people to engage with the Scripture passage from Micah 6:8 by responding to the question: “What does the Lord require of you?”

We are seeking proposals that engage with one of the following selected domestic issues:

Doing justice should not be a one-time event, but one that becomes part of the organization’s DNA. This will take intentionality in learning, networking, communication and planning to act together in solidarity. Your proposal should show how you will incorporate these steps into doing justice.

Walking Humbly with God: How does your proposed project demonstrate walking humbly with God?  For example, how do you discern how God is calling you to act? What do the Scri
