Women's Ministry Networks

Arkansas Baptists Women Growing Together!

Arkansas Baptists Women’s Ministry Networks offer an opportunity for leaders to gather in regional groups to share ideas, discuss strategy, and get to know one another. The goal is to help grow a strong network of leaders who offer friendship and serve as a resource and encouragement to one another. 

Our desire is to cultivate relationships among women who lead in the local church as we connect, equip, support, and encourage women's ministry leaders in each region of the state. If you would like to get connected to your region, contact Arkansas Baptists Women's Nework Coordinator, Shari Edwards! 

We are excited about opportunities to connect in 2023!
