The title “The T412 Mission” comes from 1 Timothy 4:12. “Do not let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” This blog is about addressing the problem of the decreasing amount of young women involved in church missions. Young evangelical women need to know that they can and should be involved.
Women’s Missionary Union.
Since 1888, the WMU has made it their mission to challenge Christians of all ages to be radically involved in evangelical missions. A long term partner of the Southern Baptist Convention, WMU is the largest protestant organization for women in the world. Because of their long term support of missions, the WMU helped establish the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering and the Lottie Moon Christmas offering. Proceeds of these offerings go to NAMB and IMB. While ministries vary from church to church, WMU as a whole offers ministries such as WorldCrafts and NewHope Publishers. WMU’s main purpose is to educate and inspire all agegroups – from preschool to senior citizens – about missions efforts all over the world. They offer material and programs specifically designed for each of these age groups.
