Focus on WMU, February 13–19, is the perfect time to introduce or reintroduce your church members to what WMU is and how they can get radically involved in God’s mission.

WMU is holistic discipleship. From preschoolers to adults, we provide relevant resources to learn about and pray for missions, as well as opportunities to apply knowledge and passion through giving, serving, and supporting missions.

Happy Birthday CWJC

A 20 Year Celebration for CWJC
by Kaylee Poston

Over the last two decades, Christian Women’s Job Corps has empowered women battling emotional and financial adversity by providing job and life skills training. By investing in the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of participants, CWJC creates a platform in which women help women embrace their full potential. CWJC not only supports women in overcoming current obstacles but also instills them with eternal hope in facing the obstacles to come. As we celebrate the 20th year of CWJC, we invite you to reflect on the journey of this ministry and the faithfulness of God in sustaining and prospering it.

CWJC/CMJC: Job Readiness

Christian Women’s Job Corps and Christian Men's Job Corps seek to equip women and men, in a Christian context, for life and employment.

Spartanburg Missionsfest Volunteers Serve in Creative Ways

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Music fills the air as participants sing and motion along with the lyrics. Later they gather together to listen to a Bible story and then construct a related craft. This may sound like a typical Vacation Bible School for the children in your church, but for the volunteers at Missionsfest in Spartanburg, S.C., this VBS was for a more mature audience: residents of a local nursing home.

Missionsfest, held July 16–20, allowed 85 volunteers age 18 and older to gather from 12 states to spread the gospel throughout Spartanburg through construction, outreach projects, evangelism, acts of kindness, prayerwalking and much more.

Throughout the week, volunteers found unique ways to approach the community for Christ. Residents of White Oak Manor, a 192-bed nursing home, experienced a VBS, complete with decorations, crafts, music, memory verses, and Bible stories.

“It was such a hit!” exclaimed Sandra Tapp, associate executive director of South Carolina WMU and trip co-coordinator. “It also proved to be life-changing for one resident of the facility.”

During the week, two volunteers led a resident to a relationship with Jesus Christ.

WMU Trips: Brittany's Story

More Than Just a Week: Brittany’s Story
Emily Killen

In May 2015, Brittany Hall found herself in New York City with a group of 30 other women participating in the myMISSIONSM national trip through WMU®. Just a few weeks before, Brittany had never even heard of WMU. Although she was seeking missions opportunities, she had never imagined herself serving as a missionary in the states, much less NYC. However, during her time on the myMISSION trip, it became evident to Brittany that the Lord had other plans.

Supporting CWJC/CMJC

To date, CWJC/CMJC program expenses have been provided through grants from the WMU Vision Fund.

A director and administrative assistant, both with other job responsibilities, are funded by WMU. To enable this nationally acclaimed "best practices model" to reach it's potential, an endowment has been established with the WMU Foundation. Interest from this fund will provide adequate staffing, training, and operating capital for the ministry. Our WMU executive director, Wanda Lee, enthusiastically supports the quest to endow this ministry and insure it's financial future. How can you help us reach this goal?
