MinistrElife is a platform designed by the American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) to help ministers network with one another and with churches. This powerful tool serves to engage and equip ministers, extend their ministry, assist with employment, and enlighten them as to what resources are available. Also included is a Zoom teleconferencing subscription!
Ministerial Leaders Seeking Ordination or Placement
In order for Region Ministers to connect pastors who are searching for placement in ABCINKY, it is necessary to create a MinistrElife online account (personal profile). For those of you familiar with the American Baptist Personnel Services profile system (ABPS), please be aware that the MinistrElife profile is now the resource used to connect ministers with search committees. It is imperative, therefore, that you create a MinistrElife profile and update your previous ABPS info there in MinistrElife.
