American Baptist Men (ABM)

President: Jack Kist

Twenty-eight years ago,  a local ABMen ministry did not exist after Del Corrick retired and left Moorhead.  I felt strongly that the Lord said “we need one and I want you to lead it”.  Today we have an active ministry which reaches out into the community, does important tasks for the church and supports the disaster relief ministry of ABMen/USA.  I have served as president during this time and also as District Representive on the national board of ABMen/USA for the past 14 years.  One of things that I find very rewarding is that 4-6 guys who are not part of our congregation attend our monthly breakfasts.  Thousands of phone calls inviting guys to participate has been a key to our success.    Jack Kist President,  ABMen/Fargo

American Baptist Men (ABM) President

(IA, MN, ND, SD)

ABMen-USA is an auxiliary organization of ABC-USA dedicated to ministry by men, for men, and for others.  We have existed since 1922, and one of our major ministry efforts has been assisting with disaster relief efforts nationally.  There are a number of other ministries such as Great Dads, Center Shot Ministries and Pray 21, which we are involved in.  Our national website: gives much more detail and you can access it on our link tab on the welcome page as well.


The local chapter,  ABMen-Fargo, meets for breakfast on the first Saturday of each month from September through May Deaner's Dinner West Fargo,at 9 am  (Address: 1635 42nd St S, Fargo, ND 58103‚Äč)

We also sponsor or participate in a number of activities and projects throughout the year.  Many of our men attend an annual outing sponsored by ABMen-ND known as Men’s Roundup at Camp Bentley near Drake, ND, on the first weekend of June.


We extend an open invitation to all men in our community to our breakfasts and to participate in our activities.  We’re sure you will enjoy it and make new friends.
