American Baptists’ Mission Center
to Relocate



Culminating a four-year, collaborative process that considered location issues related to offices of American Baptist Churches’ national partners, American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) has purchased a building within a half mile of the current Mission Center that ensures partners will continue, as well as enhance, their ministries into the coming decades of the 21st century. 

Required renovations to the newly purchased building—1075 First Avenue, King of Prussia— are expected to be completed within the first six months of 2018, followed by mission partners’ relocation into the new space.

American Baptist Churches USA (ABCUSA) General Secretary the Rev. Dr. Lee B. Spitzer is optimistic about the future: “American Baptists, God is on the move and so are we! I can’t wait to welcome all members of the family to the American Baptist Mission Center, which we hope will serve as a gathering place for an exciting era of cooperative mission. In our new location, the Office of the General Secretary is looking forward to serving our partners, regions, churches and clergy in innovative and helpful ways.”
