The North American Mission Board (NAMB) is the domestic missions agency of the Southern Baptist Convention.

NAMB was founded in 1997 through a restructuring that combined the Brotherhood Commission, the Radio and Television Commission and the Home Mission Board. NAMB is currently headquartered in Alpharetta, Georgia.

In addition to its missionary and chaplaincy efforts, NAMB partners with state and local Southern Baptists to start new churches. NAMB also assists Southern Baptists in connecting with volunteer mission opportunities such as disaster relief, refurbishing sub-standard housing, and assisting in church planting and evangelism efforts.
