Southern Baptist Convention


North America’s needs are great. Children go hungry. Neighborhoods become disaster zones after storms. Entire communities have no church presence and no one to tell them about the hope found in Christ.

It doesn’t have to be this way; God has a plan to reach North America: the Church. The Church feeds neighbors in need. The Church removes storm debris. The Church establishes new churches in areas with no gospel presence.

The Church is God’s plan—you are God’s plan—to reach North America and the nations with the hope of Christ, and the North American Mission Board is here to help.

We help equip churches to be on mission in their own communities and across the continent. Through mercy ministry, church planting, chaplaincy and disaster relief, we help congregations go to the lost and hurting.


Millions living in North America’s urban centers have not been reached with the gospel. But a new church makes change possible in an unreached neighborhood. Send Network church planting missionaries immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A plant grows organically out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team. The North American Mission Board comes alongside these planters—and the churches sending them— with practical training and strategic support.

Every day in your community there are people hurting. The enormity of the needs—poverty, refugees, foster care, human trafficking—makes it easy to feel overwhelmed. What can just one church—just one Christian—do? That’s where Send Relief comes in. We’re here to help you identify how to impact your community for Christ. We’re here to inspire, equip and train as you meet physical needs and share the hope of the gospel. When a network of thousands of “just one” churches and Christians step out in faith and on mission, the impact is expansive and eternal.

From battlefields to hospital bedsides, from prison cells to corporate boardrooms, chaplains are the Church in places where churches often cannot go. In some of the most emotionally intense and spiritually fraught circumstances imaginable, chaplains bring the light of Christ. The North American Mission Board provides continuing education and support for thousands of chaplains across many mission fields in North America and beyond.

If you have seen a disaster on the news in the last 50 years, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief was probably already there, remaining long after news cameras left town. From the initial damage assessment to welcoming returning residents to restored homes, Disaster Relief volunteers are the first on the scene and the last to leave. This nationwide network of state-based teams does more than just cleanup. It brings the healing of Christ to people whose lives have been shattered.

Are you ready to get your hands dirty and serve people devastated by disaster?

Both Send Network and Send Relief are about helping churches and individuals share their faith in their context. In addition, NAMB provides specific resources to help pastors and church members.
