ABPnews/Herald - Mid-Atlantic

ABPnews/Herald continues its coverage of news in the Mid-Atlantic region — Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland and the District of Columbia — on its home page and in a prominently designated menu item. View these articles or view the Religious Herald archive.

ABPnews/Herald collaborates with two historic Baptist newspapers to gather and report news for and about Baptists in the United States:

Southwest - Baptist Standard

The Texas-based Baptist Standard has been covering news about and for Baptists since 1888. The Standard delivers news in print and digital media, primarily focusing on the Southwest, but also including information from across the United States and around the globe. 

Midwest - Word & Way

Word&Way has been a trusted source of information, inspiration and opinion since its launch in 1896. Through print and digital news products, it links the diverse family of Baptists across the Midwest, particularly in Missouri and contiguous states. 

The editorial teams of the two newspapers and ABPnews/Herald also collaborate to plan and design a monthly feature package with feature articles, photos and commentary on current issues of interest to the Baptist family. Each package is posted on the ABPnews/Herald home page. As a service to the partnership, ABPnews/Herald provides its content sharing platform for reciprocal sharing of news, feature and opinion articles for the three websites and for the newspapers' print and digital editions.
