Mission

The Baptist Center for Global Concerns, is a self-governing, collegial, 501(c)(3), that is dedicated to enhancing ethical leadership. We are devoted to exploring the world of moral concerns, equipping people to work toward moral change, and engaging the nameless and voiceless to ease the burdens of suffering. The Center is rooted in two core values – God's peace and the value of all human life. We derive our commitment to these ideals from the Christian Scriptures and practice them in relationship with Jesus Christ. We partner with like-minded individuals and organizations dedicated to Christ's peace and the protection of human life. Our mission: The Center trains Christians to be, think, and do holistically as they seek to be global agents of Christ's peace.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Baptist Center for Global Concerns, a faith-based nonprofit, seeks to spread the peace of Christ to every human life. Peace is more than the cessation of war. Peace and peacemaking are holistic and require engagement with people at the point of their needs. Leadership has often fallen well short of spreading peace, and we believe that it contributes to shallow responses to deep human needs. We believe this leadership failure calls for a different type of moral leadership--head, heart, and hands. We strive to enhance ethical leadership in three ways--engage the world's moral concerns through research, educate people about ways to respond to moral concerns (e.g. hunger), then equip people to address these issues.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Ethical leadership is visionary, respects the dignity of all human life, and is fair and equitable. Therefore, the Center aims to meet the needs of people who are overlooked and underserved through physical, educational, and spiritual guidance. We offer physical help like food, educational assistance through certificate, graduate, and postgraduate instruction, and guidance through our partnerships.

Our organization aims to provide sustainable peace initiatives like the Mary's Table ministry that provides healthy food and cooking instruction to food insecure women and their children. Our volunteers serve alongside of the Center's leadership. This enables us to provide a first-hand example of the leadership model that we use at the Center. We also have a larger peace initiative where the focus is on agricultural training, theological education, and job-training skills for women in Nigeria.

The Center also provides continuing education in various leadership areas through our online training platform, CenterPlace. We provide scholarship assistance for global leaders who otherwise would not be able to receive training for the roles that they fulfill. This learning platform focuses on the Center's overall aims of enhancing human dignity and spread Christ's peace in useful ways.
