    ABWM is hiring!

    American Baptist Women's Ministries is hiring!
    Associate Executive Director position now open! Apply here!

    American Baptist Women’s Ministries (ABWM) is a Christ-centered ministry with a commitment to encourage, engage and empower women, young women and girls to serve God and be leaders in their communities. Our vision is for every American Baptist woman to participate in a vital ABWM in their local church, a ministry that inspires and engages women, young women and girls to fully embrace and share their gifts and their voices as they become God's person, build God's faith community, and serve God's world.

    We look to strengthen our churches and thereby our communities by supporting existing vital ministries with women and girls and to be a catalyst as churches build such ministries. As servant leaders, we come alongside American Baptist churches throughout the US, Puerto Rico and beyond.

    ABWM is based on certain non-negotiable values that form a foundation and criteria for all that we do. We provide Christ-centered ministries and we strive for excellence and equity in all we do. We practice faithful stewardship and we are relevant for women today, ever aware of current stresses and joys. We assure that our diversity (clergy/lay, age, geographic, and racial/ethnic representation) as a denomination is represented in our ministries; and we affirm and encourage the use of spiritual gifts. We recognize the worth of all women and girls and value our American Baptist family relationships.

    The AB Women’s Ministries Associate Executive Director Position

    It is our aspiration that ABWM programs, gatherings and events will inspire women, young women and girls to use their gifts and voices to live the Gospel by building bridges and opening gateways of hope. ABWM is a relevant ministry that prepares women, young women and girls to be leaders led by God in their communities by supporting today’s leaders while encouraging future visionaries that are Christ centered.

    The Associate Executive Director negotiates the intersection of our mission, vision and core values with marketing, public relations, programming and ministries so that ABWM’s mission and ministry are actualized through a collaborative network of volunteers, local ABC-USA churches, denominational partners and like-minded institutions. This role is integral to our team and reports directly to the Executive Director.

    Deadline to submit application is Friday, October 26, 2018.
