Founded in 1870 in Augusta, Georgia, The General Missionary Baptist Convention of Georgia ("GMBC") is the largest organization of African Americans in the state of Georgia. The original purpose of the Convention was to bring Black Baptists together for Christian Education and fellowship throughout the state. For over 126 years, GMBC has provided educational and enrichment programs for thousands of Georgia Baptists.
The mission of the Convention has expanded extensively throughout the years. In addition to its commitment to Christian Education and Service, GMBC owns and operates several facilities which provide support to its membership of over 600 churches, representing thousands of African American Baptists in Georgia.
GMBC is affiliated with the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. which represents over 8.6 million Black Baptist throughout the world.
GMBC Baptist Headquarters located at 155 Joseph E. Lowery Blvd., N.W. in Atlanta, Georgia, serves as the official office for the Parent Body of the General Missionary Baptist Convention of Georgia, Inc. and is the central source of support and convention services.
Statement from: Rev. Timothy French, Disaster Relief Coordinator
After visiting with Albany, Adel and Brook County yesterday. We access the damages with GEMA and ARC. The Governor has declared a state of emergency for 16 counties. Albany was hit the hardest after not fully recovering from two weeks ago. I have post on my Facebook page the devastation stemming from the tornadoes. There are many people in the Albany Civic Center who looks like us who are being sheltered. We were able to feed over 100 with sack lunches today, which was not enough. However, other churches came together to assist. This will be a long process to get Albany up and running again with normalcy. We will be feeding approximately 300 individuals this Saturday with a hot meal sponsored by GMBC.

As we prepare for its opening, this first phase is one where we will conduct a mock registration to gauge interest and size classes. Also, this mock registration will allow us to plan for classroom size, space and location.
