2012 Annual Gathering

2012 Annual Gathering, Fort Worth, Texas–June 20, 2012

Baptist Women in Ministry hosted a worship service and a lunch at Broadway Baptist Church, Fort Worth, Texas, on Wednesday, June 20, 2012.

Our worship centered on the theme “Hope Beckons.” Meredith Stone, Women in Ministry Specialist for Texas Baptists, was the morning’s preacher.

This annual worship gathering was a special time filled with good music, insightful preaching, and unforgettable fellowship, and one of the highlights of our gathering was sharing communion, which was led by Suzii and Roger Paynter and was served by Angela Fields, Erin James-Brown, and Stacy and Joey Pyle.

This year’s lunch featured directed conversations around the table, offering participants the chance to explore together relevant topics such as how to balance motherhood and ministry, how to be part of an effective ministry position search, how to help your congregation effect change with regard to women’s leadership, and more. The two winners of the 2012 Addie Davis Awards, Angela Fields and Erin James-Brown, were introduced during lunch.
