Woman’s Missionary Union, Southern Baptist Convention

For we are labourers together with God

1 Corinthians 3:9 KJV

Woman’s Missionary Union challenges Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God.

The Tasks of Woman’s Missionary Union:

    • pray for and give to missions
    • do missions * learn about missions
    • develop spiritually toward a missions lifestyle
    • participate in the work of the church and the denomination

In 1888, a handful of women dedicated to the cause of missions founded Woman’s Missionary Union. Since that time, WMU has become the largest Protestant organization for women in the world, with a membership of approximately 1 million. WMU also was the first and remains the largest body of organized laity in the Southern Baptist Convention.

The women’s efforts to raise money for the two mission boards are known today as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions and the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions. The Christmas offering originated in 1888 and was named for Lottie Moon in 1918. The Easter offering originated in 1895 and was named for Annie Armstrong in 1934. The two offerings remained women’s offerings until 1956, when WMU agreed to promote the offerings churchwide. By the end of 1998, WMU had helped lead Southern Baptists to contribute nearly $2.5 billion to the two offerings.
