Missions resources for men and women, boys and girls of all ages
Founded in 1888, Woman’s Missionary Union, SBC (WMU) has educated and involved generations in Christian missions. Her purpose—to challenge Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God—is accomplished through age-level missions organizations, hands-on missions opportunities, and additional missions resources produced for the local church. WMU is also the largest Christian women’s organization in the world, with nearly a million members nationwide.
Pennsylvania/South Jersey Woman’s Missionary Union is proud to be a state chapter of WMU. We have a state leadership team that meets bi-annually to plan and prepare for ministry across PA and South Jersey. Leaders on the team represent BRN’s four regions, particular ministry affinity groups and every age-level.
We hope you will call on us when you need missions and ministry ideas, information, resources, training and/or connections with other missional Christians in your immediate area, around the state or across the world. We can work with you and your church to discover people groups and opportunities for ministry. We will help you build relationships and partnerships for being on mission. We are available to assist you as you organize ongoing missions education in your church and to train your missions leaders.
We also promote three annual missions emphases for Pennsylvania and South Jersey Baptists:
- North American Missions Week of Prayer and Annie Armstrong Easter Offering in March;
- State Missions Week of Prayer and Ed and Mary Price Offering in September; and
- International Missions Week of Prayer and Lottie Moon Christmas Offering each December.
