We are pleased to share the news that we anticipate gathering in person with you again this year for the 2022 American Baptist Churches of Ohio Annual Gathering. The Gathering will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 11 & 12, 2022 at the Crowne Plaza Columbus North (6500 Doubletree Avenue, Columbus, OH 43229).
We are excited to have a full schedule of program events along with exhibits, personnel from various ABC Ohio-related organizations and of course, meals together around the table! Everything will also be available via livestream for those unable to travel or not prepared to join a large group.
Our 2022 theme is "Creating Community in a Polarized World". This year's keynote speaker will be Rev. Sharon Koh, CEO/Executive Director of International Ministries with ABC-USA.
We will spend time together each day in worship led by Pastor Benjamin Payne and the Praise Team of First Baptist Church of Seville. Our Bible studies will be led by ABC Ohio pastors from around the state.
Tuesday night will include the graduation ceremony for the Ohio Leadership Academy. We will also hear from American Baptist missionaries serving through the Board of International Ministries. In addition, we will hear ministry updates from those serving here at home in Ohio.
Please mark the date on your calendar. Registration materials and more details will be available soon!
