Major clean up and relief efforts have begun in South Carolina after the unprecedented rainfall earlier this month. With businesses in the area also affected, it has made it challenging for residents to purchase many of the items needed. To help assist in these efforts, NBCA has set up 2 Resource Centers and we are asking our members to please help our brothers and sisters out by sending as many of the items listed below to one of our NBCA Resource Centers.
Personal Care Items
Please ship your items to one of the NBCA Resource Centers listed below:
Bethesda Baptist Church

Georgetown, South Carolina 29440

Zion Baptist Church

Columbia, South Carolina 29201

In addition, we are still asking each NBCA affiliated church to continue prayerfully considering receiving an offering this Sunday, as well as over the next few Sundays, and send it in weekly to the Office of the Treasurer, at the address listed below, so that it can be used to help relieve the suffering in South Carolina. In addition, I am asking members to also consider giving individual donations through our new mobile giving app called Givelify and the directions are listed below. Please share this safe method of giving with your friends and family so that they can also be a part of helping to bless our brothers and sisters in South Carolina. We have an initial goal of $100,000 and your generous donations will help us to reach our goal.
Thank you for your immediate response to this disaster and please remain prayerful and move with compassion during this time.

The strategic planning process was designed to include the wisdom and imagination of denominational officers, pastors, congregational leaders, and the general membership of NBCA. This inclusive approach to discerning God’s will for the denomination and cultivating a collective vision for the future included conversations in September 2014, during a Special Session convened in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to launch a multi-year focus on Prayer, Planning, Unity, Renewal and Worship.
We started a journey to imagine a new and exciting future together. We gathered data from NBCA Pastors and constituents to ensure that we benefit from the deep and broad experience and insight of many who are serving faithfully across the country. The initial process has been accomplished. We organized the input around “the convention serving congregations.” You have spoken, and we are responding with this Strategic Plan that outlines the way forward for the next few years.
