Woman's Auxiliary Missions

  • Regional Conferences
  • Expansion of the S. Willie Layton Hospital built in 1984 by the Woman's Convention in Chilembwe, Malawi, Central Africa
  • The Nannie Helen Burroughs Woman's Conference, co-sponsored with the American Baptist College.  The purpose of this Conference is to establish a national forum for dialogue on issues of women's leadership roles in the church and society. Various workshops on the ministry of family and public life are addressed. This conference represents an outreach of the American Baptist College in ways that are different from the Congress and the Convention. There will be a commitment for the women of the Convention and especially the young women.

Our Pledge

We pledge to continue our efforts in behalf or our Convention: to more adequately and compassionately serve the needs of the women of our Convention and women around the world.
