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.
