 American Baptist Womens Ministries 

American Baptist Women's Ministries is a diverse community of American Baptist women and girls serving in ministry in Christ's name. With local, area, region/state, and national levels of ministry, AB Women's Ministries creates a community of passionately faithful, mission-minded women and girls engaged in worship, service, and friendship.

The ABWM NYS is a Charitable Non-Profit Corporation/Organization under the umbrella of American Baptist Churches of NYS; which is under the umbrella of American Baptist Churches of USA. We have our very own ByLaws and operate as our own entity under the umbrella of ABC NYS.

All 38 states that participate in the organization have their own presiding President who represents their particular state at all local, national, and international conventions, bi-annual gatherings, and national meetings,

As the President my duties include conducting all meetings, develop all agendas for the year and oversee 52 women on the ABWM NYS Board as we host a State Convention each year.

Rev. Dr. Gina Jacobs-Strain

The ABCUSA National Black Caucus congratulates The Rev. Dr. Gina Jacobs Strain in her call to serve as the next General Secretary of the American Baptist Churches USA. Dr. Strain’s call represents our progress in inclusive and diverse national leadership being the first woman, first clergy woman and first African American, non-white, and not male, to service in this role for our communion.

May God bless her and us all in the ABCUSA as she leads us prayerfully, prophetically, and progressively forward as God gives us vision and strength.

To God be the glory!

Will you become a vital partner in our vital ministries?

Vital Partners are individuals or groups that give regularly ($228 or more per year) to National Support of American Baptist Women's Ministries. Vital Partners give monthly, quarterly, or annually, and they may also set up automated giving by direct withdrawal from their bank account or credit card. Vital Partners have a vision for the future of AB Women's Ministries and financially support our work with women and girls. Your support of national AB Women's Ministries, whether great or small, collectively makes possible great things!
