The American Baptist Personnel Services (ABPS) is a computer-based data-storage-and-retrieval system which produces personnel profiles. The mission of ABPS is to provide profiles of men and women professionally trained who seek new places to serve local congregations and denominational entities. ABPS also provides resources which enable a local congregation to discover its mission and leadership needs. ABPS provides useful information which is shared openly and without bias, standing fully in the spirit of American Baptist Home Mission Societies Ministry purpose to develop Christ-centered leadership. ABPS is committed to ABHMS values of integrity, stewardship, diversity, collaboration and teamwork.
ABPS works in partnership with ABCUSA region staffs who assist local church search committees by using the ABPS resource titled “Calling an American Baptist Minister” to better understand their congregation, its mission and leadership needs. With this information a search of the ABPS data base is completed to retrieve profiles of persons with the skills and experiences identified by the church. All ministerial leaders in the American Baptist Churches USA are encouraged to enroll in the profile system and to keep their profile updated so that their gifts for ministry are afforded a broad and timely consideration.
ABHMS seeks to provide the denomination with those among American Baptists who are skilled in a variety of ministry gifts. The ABPS Profile system can be searched for those who are educated and experienced in a broad diversity of ministries. Any affiliated American Baptist organization may contact the ABPS office for such searches.
