Job Description:
The North American Baptist Conference is a family of over 400 churches with more than 74,000 worship service attenders in the United States and Canada. North American Baptists are a diverse group of believers representing many cultures and languages. You’ll find us worshipping in small rural churches, large auditoriums, schools, storefronts, and homes.

Each of our local churches chose to be part of the North American Baptist Conference because they wanted to be part of a larger church family focused on making disciples. That voluntary decision to cooperate with others is a very important witness to our unity in Christ.

Much of that cooperation can be seen locally through 13 NAB Regions. Regions are an important ministry of our Conference, allowing many of our churches to network, maximize resources, and partner on important initiatives.
