Women’s Missions & Ministry seeks to engage women, teens, children and preschoolers in missional living through compassion ministries everyday in everyway. The age-level organizations of WMU and the discipleship of Women’s Ministry are natural avenues of missions involvement through our churches and into our communities, our state, North America and around the world. “We are laborers together with God” I Corinthians 3.9.

WMU and Womens Ministry provides

  • Ministry opportunities and events for children, teens and adults that enable putting hands and feet to work for Christ
  • Mission and bible teaching events for children, teens and adults
  • Training and leadership development for age-level mission organization leaders and women’s ministry leaders
  • Teaching and promotional materials for the Week of Prayer for State Missions and the Georgia Barnette State Mission offering
  • Resources for promoting the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions and the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions
  • Encouragment for ministers’ wives

Prison Ministry

LA Correctional Institute for Women is the only state-owned and operated correctional facility for women in the state. LA Women’s Missions and Ministry has partnered with the Baptist Association of Greater Baton Rouge (BAGBR) in an effort to share Christ within those walls.

Information for 2017 ministry weekend will be posted in Spring of 2017.
