Why we exist
Ministry is demanding, and sometimes you long for those alongside you who understand that. Of course there are resources, and good ones. Mentoring schemes, the ministry department, your regional team. But how would it be if, alongside these, there was a fellowship of those engaged in ministry of all kinds, which existed in order to provide support, encouragement and representation? Well there is. The Baptist Ministers’ Fellowship is just such a group, open to all those in Baptist ministry. That includes those training, retired and working for Baptist-linked mission agencies. We aim to reflect on issues and matters relating to Baptist ministry, and when appropriate to represent these to regional and national bodies; produce a journal of academic, practical and contextual theology that encourage sreflection on the practice and theology of Baptist ministry; enhance the sense of concern and compassion among those involved in Baptist ministry by encouraging members to commit to mutual prayer on Sunday mornings; offer practical care through the administration of a benevolent fund.
