One of the ministries of NCBM is the Fellowship of Baptist Educators which has more than 900 Baptist educators who use their educational skills to fulfill the Great Commission by "...teaching them to obey everything I have taught you." Matthew 28:20a
There are three avenues of involvement through Baptist Educators:
Use Your Teaching Skills in Missions
Use your skills in short or long term mission teaching at home or around the world. Some of our members serve at home teaching internationals in their communities. Other members serve in short or long term assignments overseas. The Baptist Educator's newsletter, Educomis, offers information about opportunities to work in coorperation with Baptist mission schools, conventions, unions, and fellowships all over the world. Our members include teachers who work with every age level, preschool through university. Administrators, coaches, librarians, and counselors also participate. A membership application is available here at the Baptist Educators website. People all around the world are hungry to hear the truth about Christ conveyed by caring teachers.
Book-Link International, Inc.
Touch the world through books. Baptist Educators sponsors Book-Link International, Inc. which collects and ships Bibles and Christian Study materials all over the world to missionaries, national pastors, and school libraries that can use materials in English. We have two North Carolina sites where books are stored, sorted, and packed for shipment to the distribution point in Eubank, Kentucky.
BOOKS ON MISSION
In 2015, a new collection and shipping center was established at the NCBM Missions Camp in Shelby, NC that we call Books on Mission. We collect, sort, package, waterproof, and ship Bibles and Bible study materials to seminaries, Bible schools, and pastors overseas. Recently, Campers on Mission, delivered boxes of books they had brought as they came to their annual meeting in Marion, NC. Baptist colleges, universities, and Bible schools in North Carolina have helped provide fine materials for Books on Mission to send.
If you can deliver books to either of the two sites below, please call the coordinators at the drop-off points to make sure they are on site when you plan to arrive. This will allow the coordinator to show you where in the warehouses to put your books.

People who wish to help who live in North Carolina and upstate South Carolina will find these locations to be convenient places to leave Bibles, commentaries, and other resources. Others may ship materials to the warehouse in Eubank, Kentucky.
Some of our members enjoy taking groups to the warehouse of Book-Link International, Inc. in Eubank, Kentucky where they help with packing and sending materials. If you would like to help, contact the Exectutive Director, Mr. Olin Williams at 606.379.2140 or 606.379.1734, or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Universal Pen Pals
Through the Universal Pen Pal Project we help students in grades 7-12 become electronic pen pals with students overseas who are taking English in their schools. The overseas English teachers like it because it motivates their students to practice their English. We like it because it gives our young people an opportunity to be a Christian influence in a country where mission work may be restricted.
