Who We Are

Baptist Women in Ministry’s vision is for women to thrive as they minister and lead within Baptist communities.

Our mission is to support women who pursue ministry and leadership with sustaining resources and community, and to advocate for the full affirmation of women in ministry and leadership in Baptist life.

Our desire is that all we do within our mission will help move toward a world where our vision is a reality. How we believe that will happen is reflected in our theory of change below.

As we engage in the work of supporting and advocating for women in ministry, we are guided by our organization’s values which are:


We approach our work with joy and optimism. We uplift female leadership, have a shared sense of success, and find inspiration in each other’s accomplishments.


We are all innately connected. We see, believe, and journey with one another through the highs and lows.


We deliver excellence. We take thoughtful action and are creative in finding new ways to add value.


We rise to meet the moment. We seek diversity and equity, and relentlessly pursue a better world.
