American Baptist Church Placement Information

American Baptist seminary students who are seeking placement in the American Baptist Church must fill out a personnel profile with American Baptist Personnel Services (ABPS). This profile becomes part of a computer-based, data-storage and retrieval system that allows churches and ABC ministries to search for candidates.

For more detailed information and/or to contact ABPS directly, visit their website.

To start the process of creating your profile, please download the following forms and return them to American Baptist Personnel Services. The forms must be signed by the Regional Executive Minister where you hold your church membership. Please note that your signature is required as well.

Contact information for the American Baptist Regions and the Regional Executive Ministers can be found here.

It is crucial to foster relationships with the region where you are seeking placement.
