Broadening our
definition of
membership:
BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz
introduces a new
membership structure

T

he board and staff of BPFNA ~ Bautistas
por la Paz have been thinking a lot
about what it means to be a member of this
organization, and as a result, we have developed
a new membership structure to be more
inclusive and welcoming to all in our network.
this new structure includes non-monetary
contributions
people can make to become
FRONT
members of BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz.
While we do largely rely on individual and
organizational donations to support our work
of peace rooted in justice, we also welcome and
celebrate the many ways people can participate
in the shared work of peacemaking.
For those able to make a financial
contribution, we have also increased our
suggested membership dues for the first time
in several years. this increase supports our
expanding peacemaking programs. our
expenses are going up, yet we welcome and
appreciate your giving at any level that makes
sense for you.
visit our new membership page at www.
bpfna.org/join to learn more about these
changes.

No estas solo.
¿Alguna vez te has sentido como tu congregación
es el único que trabaja por la paz?
El programa de congregaciones Asociadas de
BPFNA puede ayudar. Este programa alienta alianzas
estratégicas para la misión entre iglesias locales y otros
pacificadores. También ofrece recursos y redes para
congregaciones que de otro modo estarian aisladas
en un mundo violento y materialista.

one working for peace?
The BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz Partner
congregation program can help. this program
encourages strategic alliances for mission between
local churches and other peacemakers. It also
offers resources and networking for congregations
that would otherwise be isolated in a violent and
materialistic world.
