ABHMS Pledges to
Rebuild, Restore, Renew Puerto Rico


In response to the devastating one-two punch leveled at Puerto Rico first by Hurricane Irma and most recently by Hurricane Maria, American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS), in partnership with American Baptist Churches USA (ABCUSA), will launch a multi-year initiative, “Rebuilding, Restoring, Renewing Puerto Rico,” Executive Director Dr. Jeffrey Haggray announced.

Additionally, ABHMS is committed to developing resources that support nurturing spiritual growth, building diverse, healing communities, and strengthening churches through leadership and discipleship development. These resources are compiled for church communities to use in times of prayer and worship in response to the devastation in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria. American Baptists are encouraged to contribute litanies, homilies or other worship resources used in your faith communities for distribution.
