The Southern Baptist Convention is scheduled to hold its Annual Meeting right here in Baltimore, June 10-11, 2014. Mark your calendar—we are excited to announce Crossover Baltimore on June 7, 2014. This is a great opportunity to participate in mobilizing believers to do good deeds by demonstrating God’s love through practical acts of service throughout our city and respective neighborhoods.

We plan to implement
Crossover Baltimore by partnering with Baltimore Baptist Association churches, other strategic partners throughout Baltimore, individuals, and ministries coming to be part of Crossover.
Our desire is to mobilize a substantial number of volunteers to impact our city/region with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Various projects, locations, and necessary volunteers needed to execute
Crossover Baltimore are in the process of being identified. Won’t you pray about your church’s possible role in being part of this endeavor and teaming up with others to saturate Baltimore with the love of Christ.

BALTIMORE—More than 20 churches of the Baltimore Baptist Association (BBA) gathered together at Manna Bible Baptist Church in Baltimore on June 2 to worship, pray and cast vision for next year’s Crossover, an evangelistic outreach that precedes the Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting. The worship, fellowship, and preaching in humility were intoxicating.

Thousands of Southern Baptists will converge in Baltimore on June 10-11, 2014, for the annual Southern Baptist Convention. Through the combined efforts of the Baltimore Baptist Association (BBA), the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware (BCM/D), and the North American Mission Board (NAMB), there will be multi-faceted evangelistic opportunities to serve the area through Crossover.
