About WMU

We believe missions is a lifestyle; therefore, we provide missions education resources for all age-levels—from preschoolers to senior adults. Whatever your age or stage in life, we have missions resources for you. Through missions, others may hear of Jesus, the giver of eternal life.

WMU Overview

Founded in 1888, WMU is a missions organization that has educated and involved generations upon generations in Christian missions. Our purpose—to challenge Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God—is accomplished through our age-level missions organizations, hands-on missions opportunities, and additional resources produced by WMU.

A collection of memories from myMISSION: Nashville 2016.

Wisdom-Martin elected executive director of WMU, SBC

(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.) -- Sandra Wisdom-Martin, executive director of WMU of Texas, was unanimously elected executive director/treasurer of Woman’s Missionary Union, SBC, by the WMU executive board during a special called meeting, July 29-30, in Birmingham, Ala.

Wisdom-Martin succeeds Wanda Lee, who has served as executive director of the 128-year-old missions organization for the past 16 years. Wisdom-Martin, who will begin her new role on Oct. 15, was presented to the board by a search committee appointed in February following Lee’s announcement of her intentions to retire.

Prior to leading WMU of Texas since 2010, Wisdom-Martin served as women’s missions and ministries director for the Illinois Baptist State Association, 2001-2010; and as Cooperative Program Missionary with the Arkansas Baptist State Convention, 1991-2001.

Personal Testimonies of BNF Nurses

Hear how BNF has changed the lives of nurses:

“As a former missionary nurse, I learned about BNF when I returned to the states. Georgia WMU asked me to serve as the camp nurse at a GA/Acteens camp, where I learned about and became a member of BNF. Georgia BNF taught me new ways to use my nursing skills and about the national BNF organization. 

“As a Christian professional nurses organization, BNF has made an impact on the lives of many nurses, and I pray the future brings even greater possibilities for nurses to serve in missions at home and around the world!”
—Wanda S. Lee

"I am not sure how I first learned of BNF, but I became a member about 20 years ago. Since that time, I have participated in various ministries, including screenings of state fair workers, first-aid stations for events, several missions trips, and a blessing of the hands ceremony. I am thankful for the rich heritage and persistent pioneers of BNF. May the faithful legacy of love, compassion, and dedication of service in Jesus’ name live on until He comes!”
—Deborah Kelly

How BNF Supports Nurses

Baptist Nursing Fellowship focuses on ministering to health-care professionals by supporting them professionally, spiritually, and missionally. It purposes to develop in its members a missional lifestyle—one that combines the medical field with the missions field. BNF® accomplishes these goals by equipping health-care professionals, providing them with prayer support, supplying them with resources for ministry, connecting them with other professionals, and sending them across the country and around the world.

Equipping—BNF equips its members by offering continuing education units at annual meetings. It is working to provide online CEUs in the near future.

Praying—BNF encourages prayer among members by providing a prayer calendar based on members’ birthdays. Through social media and other electronic resources, it brings together members to pray for a specific focus. Prayers often focus specifically on nurses serving in full-time missions.

Raising Support for your Missions Trip

Once costs are accounted for and a budget has been supplied to each team member, the team must begin to raise the necessary financial support.

As a group, the team can be involved in:

  • Service projects such as car washes and service auctions
  • A good way to involve the church is to hold a dinner centered on the ministry location, serving food common to the area and dressing in traditional dress.
  • Other successful fund-raising activities include garage sales and bake sales

As an individual, you can seek speaking engagements and write letters to churches, personal friends, and professional contacts, allowing you to seek financial support and gain prayer support.
