Whyte Ridge Baptist is affiliated with several key organizations that either extend our influence for Jesus Christ or accomplish that which we cannot through the ministries of our church community alone. We are connected to these organizations through long-established relationships and our Baptist heritage. The North American Baptist Conference of Churches began and grew out of a strong desire to see lives changed through Christ’s love. This family of churches focus on doing God’s work through: making new disciples, praying, training new leaders, working together, caring and giving. Because of the commitment, dedication and sacrifice of our founding church leaders and those that followed, the NAB Conference has grown into a family of churches representing many cultures and heritages throughout Canada and the United States. Today, you will hear Cambodian, Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, French, Korean, Russian, Portuguese and many other languages. The NAB Conference is a family with: over 400 churches, 75,000 church attenders, 64,000 members, nearly 3,000 new believers annually and more than 2,300 baptisms in a year. The Manitoba Baptist Association of Churches is part of the Northern Plains Region (one of the thirteen regions of the North American Baptist Conference). It consists of seventeen churches located in Manitoba. Together we support two camps and a seniors residence and nursing home. We are overseen and shepherded by Rev. Phyl Putz – our Regional Minister. We meet together annually for a training conference aimed at helping us be faithful to the vision and mission God has given to our church. Located in the beautiful Whiteshell Provincial Park, MB., Camp Nutimik is a place for kids (and adults too), an outdoor place, where kids can be kids, have their imagination stretched, tackle new possibilities, and above all, learn of the love God has for each one of them! Each summer, children from Whyte Ridge Baptist attend a week of camp at Nutimik and rarely come back unchanged by the experience. Over the years, many Whyte Ridge people have volunteered or worked during the summer at Nutimik and in this practical way shared the love of Jesus with children from across Manitoba. Meadowood Manor is a faith-based non-profit, 88 bed Personal Care Home. It also houses an 89 suite – Seniors Independent Living – apartment complex. Their focus is on providing a superior level of care, while enriching the lives of seniors both physically and spiritually. Whyte Ridge people have taken an active part at Meadowood by volunteer for a variety of tasks to show the resident’s the love of God. We are part of a regular rotation with sister churches of the Manitoba Baptist Association providing music for Meadowood’s church service on Sunday mornings.
