The North American Mission Board (NAMB) is the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) mission entity that exists to work with churches, associations and state conventions in mobilizing Southern Baptists as a missional force to impact North America with the gospel of Jesus Christ through evangelism and church planting. Through its Send North America strategy, NAMB will:
- Mobilize churches, church planters and other missionaries to penetrate lostness and connect unchurched people with a local congregation
- Equip church planters and sending churches for evangelistic church planting.
- Plant churches within defined regions, people groups and large population centers (cities).
