WMU - Women's Missionary Union
The Associational WMU was formed on September 20, 1902 with three charter members: Griffin First, McDonough and Locust Grove. Other churches represented were: Union, Milner, Orchard Hill, Luella and DeVotie. At the next meeting all of these and also Zebulon affiliated with the new organization and a constitution was adopted.
The WMU had been involved in student education funds or grants, in special projects for the Georgia Baptist Children’s Homes and numerous other mission projects but probably the one most significant project in its history began in July 1940 when it sponsored the first encampment for GA’s and RA’s at Teamon Baptist Church. This one single project led directly to the establishment of the beautiful Flint River Baptist Camp at Pomona, GA. Through the years many young people in RA and GA Camps have responded to Christian vocations.
The current WMU Council consists of: WMU Director: Joyce Bradley; Asst. Director: Barbara McNeal; Children's Coordinator: Linda Roy; Churchwide Missions Consultant: Ann Lovin; Prayer Coordinator: Stephanie Bradley; Women Christian Job Corp: Robin Bohn; and Support Ministry: Merle Daily and Lucille Williams.
