For Pastors and AMS

Since 1878, WMU has walked alongside local churches to strengthen missions awareness and action in their people. At KentuckyWMU, we seek to continue this legacy.

KentuckyWMU hopes to partner well: helping you lead your church(s) towards gospel obedience in your community and beyond. Because of your gifts to the Cooperative Program, we can provide all Kentucky Baptist churches with tools, resources, and opportunities to make meaningful Missions Discipleship in our churches.

We understand that every church is different and may have a unique approach to missions; our desire is not to change what you already do but to enrich it by infusing missions into your church DNA. This booklet gives you an overview of the current resources and opportunities offered by KentuckyWMU. Our resources help each church member engage in the mission of God in his or her unique context.
