Guam

General Baptists have been ministering in Guam since 1911.  This is our first and oldest field of ministry outside the continental United States.  Over the years we have been blessed by our connection with Guam and look forward to many more years of ministry and outreach to the residents, guest workers and military families of Guam

Challenges for Prayer

Prayer for our churches and pastors as they reach out to both those from Guam and those guest workers and military families who are living on the island temporarily. Agana Heights is one of the island’s first Baptist churches, this church was built in 1955. It is one of the first buildings located among a row of religious institutions along one of the village’s main roads.

The church has a great and long history on Guam as can be seen from the old video below and this article about Pastor Joaquin Sabalan.

  • Prayer for our military outreach that we may effectively change the lives of young men and women who serve our nation.
  • Pray for our churches on Guam that they may faithfully proclaim the good news of God’s love.
  • Prayer for leaders for the Guamanian churches.  Pastors are urgently needed.
