More about ABREA...
Membership is open to professional staff members who have specific responsibility for adult discipleship ministries in churches affiliated with the SBC and the Alabama Baptist Convention. Our purpose is to provide networking, fellowship, and professional development opportunities to our members. We typically meet annually on the final Thursday and Friday of January.

Members include both full and part time staff members, as well as specific ministries for any of the following: men, women, senior adults, young adults, etc. Senior Pastors and Age-Group Staff (Student, Children's and Preschool) are welcome to attend our meetings but we do not target those ministries in our programming. We recognize that there are other organizations similar to ours, but focused on the needs of those church staff positions. Our desire is to help ministers find the best organization for specific professional development and networking. At the same time, many of our members have supervisory responsibility over age-group ministries.

Eager? 2019 Registration is Now Open at 2018 rates!
