    National Leadership Team of AB GIRLS

    The National Leadership Team for AB GIRLS (NLT) consists of girls and women from across the country, working together to plan programs and resources for ministry with girls. They serve as consultants for churches who are looking to start up their own ministries with girls, and NLT members are available for speaking engagements and consultation in American Baptist regions when their schedules allow.

    The National Leadership Team meets during the year to evaluate current resources and develop ideas for new materials, to plan the summer National Gathering for Girls, and to receive training in various aspects of ministry with girls so that they might be prepared for consultation and speaking engagements. In addition, youth on the NLT receive leadership training and the opportunity to broaden their vision by meeting and working with girls and women from a wide variety of backgrounds.

    Girls in grades 8 through 10 who are active members of an American Baptist Church are eligible to apply for consideration as a member of the NLT. The NLT specifically looks for girls who have a commitment to their faith, a desire to be challenged and stretched, leadership capabilities, and a love of ministry. A downloadable application form is available below.
    Women (25 years old or older) are nominated to the NLT through the Executive Committee of AB Women's Ministries -— interested parties should contact their local or region AB Women's Ministries President so that their names might be passed to the Executive Committee. Experience with AB GIRLS, ministry with girls, or ministry with children or youth in a congregational or regional setting is a plus, although not an absolute requirement. Sometimes the best ideas come from someone looking at things with new eyes!
