Retreat Awards

Each year at our annual retreat, several awards are presented. They are as follows:

Layman of the Year

Each year a special layman is selected to be named the Layman of the Year for our American Baptist Men of PA and DE Region. This honor is bestowed on the layman after recommendations by other laypersons and members of the ministry have been reviewed by the selection committee.
