Escaping 14 inches of snow, two Churchnet leaders managed to trek to Orlando, Florida, on January 14 for a meeting of the North American Baptist Fellowship. Churchnet is a member body of NABF, which unites 22 Baptist bodies with more than 19 million members in Canada and the United States. Both Executive Director Brian Ford and Associate Director Brian Kaylor attended the meeting to strategize with other Baptist leaders and share their thoughts during forum sessions.
“I’m proud that Churchnet is a member body of the North American Baptist Fellowship,” Ford said after the meeting. “This fellowship of Baptist leaders is diverse, dynamic, and determined to help realize the Good News of God’s beloved community here and now. We need organizations like the NABF to keep our myopic vision of the world at bay and to remind us that Baptists do not have to agree on everything in order to collaborate and impact God’s kingdom in transformational ways.”
