American Baptist Women’s Ministries (ABWM) has a long heritage of being on the forefront of mission and ministry with women and girls worldwide. From its founding in 1951 through today, ABWM has addressed critical issues such as sex trafficking, poverty, equal voice, safety and security, access to water and other natural resources, leadership development, and, of course, spreading the good news of Jesus Christ!
ABWM empowers women and girls to live into the fullness of who they are created by God to be. In commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, to the mission of the Church, and through the enabling of the Holy Spirit, ABWM provides opportunities for each woman to become and develop as God’s person, build God’s faith community, and serve God’s world.
