Welcome to the Miami Baptist Association
The Miami Baptist Association has a rich history in the Greater Cincinnati Area dating back to the 1800's. Our churches have a dedication to missions, church starts and helping congregations develop and grow the ministry of Christ. Please feel free to explore our website to learn more about us and our ministries.
"Where there is no vision, the people perish." Proverbs 29:18.
In the past, the Association offered a Mission Fair highlighting our churches’ missions. This year, you are invited to Mission Envision 2017: Casting a Vision for the Future!
This day, September 23, 2017 will be the start of a dialogue among our area churches to pray, dialogue, envision, and, hopefully, start to move toward a direction that strengthen our churches, as different and diverse as they are, toward building a Kingdom together. More discussions will follow, but this can be a place to start. Let me know if you need child care.
Our American Baptist is a diverse group of people and we want to be sure all persons and group and churches in our Association have an opportunity to grow while taking a break from our urban or suburban life to sojourn away from our normal routine.
This will be a day to pray, learn, and challenge us to do more than we ever thought possible.
As you may know, Matthew 25: Ministries acquired Camp Kirkwood, freeing the Association to support this AND also other ministries. They have already GREATLY improved the camp. Now known simply as “Kirkwood” it is a retreat site worth revisiting. Be prepared to be surprised. For those of you who have not seen this new retreat, now is the time to visit this wonderful place which is still work in progress. Kirkwood’s address and links are attached.
I invite your pastors, your mission team and youth leaders to an exciting new opportunity for the churches of the Miami Baptist Association! This is a day to share the resources we have and to look into the future to start to discern what the Lord has for Us to Do for Him.
