The Southern Baptist Convention

For more than 170 years, Southern Baptists have sought to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people everywhere.

The Southern Baptist Convention was formed with a Gospel vision. Its founding charter identifies its singular focus: . . . for the purpose of eliciting, combining, and directing the energies of the Baptist denomination of Christians, for the propagation of the Gospel.

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has grown to be a network of more than fifty thousand cooperating churches and church-type missions banded together to make an impact for God’s Kingdom.

The Relational Discipleship Network

The Relational Discipleship Network (RDN) is made up of disciple making churches that support each other through coaching and training.

They believe biblical discipleship is the core mission of churches. The RDN is committed to making disciples, using Jesus' methods, which are based upon relationships. They call this "Intentional Relational Discipleship." 

The International Mission Board

The International Mission Board (IMB) has the primary goal of partnering with churches to help empower teams of missionaries who can make disciples and multiply churches throughout unreached places and people.
