The Outreach Commission of the West Virginia Baptist Convention is committed to the Great Commission. The future story includes:

  • Starting a Harvesting Church movement wherein healthy churches birth new churches.
  • Empowering transformed churches through the Holy Spirit to become healthy, radiant, glorious and multiplying.
  • Identifying and training believers in their personality style-based evangelism so that they might be most effective witnesses for Jesus Christ. Got style? The Outreach Commission can help anyone discover his or her style.
  • Assessing and training church planters to become successful in leading new churches.
  • Modeling “coaching” wherein leaders might reach their full-kingdom potential.
  • Providing excitable ministries and spiritual opportunities for young adults on local college campuses.
  • Providing ministries, retreats and missions for both men and women through very active American Baptist Women’s Ministries and American Baptist Men.

The work of the Christian Outreach Commission includes:
developing new church plants, aggressive and ongoing programs of evangelism,
promoting church health and community ministries.
