Region Board American Baptist Churches of Indiana and Kentucky policy-making and envisioning are in the domain of the region through the region board structure.
Geographic Areas The ABC/IN-KY region is organized into five geographic areas for the purpose of responding to the programming and training needs of the local church. The intent of the area structure is to focus the resources of the region, associations and constituent churches toward churches and their ministries.
An area resource minister, who is an employee of the region, is staff to each of the geographic areas. They serve to support the congregations and professional church leaders in their respective areas.
