About the Woman's Auxiliary
With compassion, we will serve the needs of the women of our Convention and women around the world. We pledge to affirm one another through words and deeds.
MissionThe Mission of the Woman’s Auxiliary to the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. is to embrace the spirit- mind, teachings and principles of Christ in an endeavor to promote Christian Education; minister to needs and promote spiritual growth for the women of our Convention and to advance the Gospel Message to people, in particular, women in the world.
Woman's Auxiliary MissionsWe support Home and Foreign Mission. NBC Women were instrumental in the expansion of the S. Willie Layton Hospital built in 1984 by the Woman’s Convention in Chilembwe, Malawi, and Central Africa. We are yearly contributors and participants to the North America Baptist Women’s Union (NABWU) and the Baptist World Alliance (BWA) that support women in need in Third World Countries and around the world. The first week in November is set aside for this effort.
Concern for young people and Education continues to be a priority exemplified by our giving to American Baptist College, Arkansas Baptist College and the Children’s Defense Fund and other institutions. Through Fashion Share, our Outreach Project held each year during Convention Week, we share with women from local shelters, giving affirmation and encouragement to move out of their comfort zones and discover their real purpose in life.
Any woman who is a member of the local church and whose church is a member of the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. can register to attend the meetings of the Woman’s Auxiliary during the Annual Session in September or the Mid-Winter Board Meeting in January. There are no membership fees specific to participating in the Woman’s Auxiliary. However, registration fees are required of the woman’s home church, District Association or State Convention. Registration is available during the Convention’s Annual Session, Mid Winter Board Meeting and Congress Annual Session. This is an all-inclusive ministry. Young women as well as seasoned saints are welcome. Perhaps, you are the missing piece to this ministry.
