Are you interested in leading a missions group but don't know where to start?

Are you a worn-out leader who needs a time of renewal?


WMU NC has something for you!


Being a leader in any context can be difficult. There are seasons where you wonder if the work you are doing really matters, but it does!  WMU NC is committed to helping leaders feel equipped to lead in their churches and communities.


This summer we are excited to offer Leadership Gatherings across the state.  A day focused on encouraging and equipping leaders to live out their specific ministry callings within their churches and communities.

"My dear brothers and sisters, stay firmly planted—be unshakable—do many good works in the name of God, and know that all your labor is not for nothing when it is for God."


1 Corinthians 15:58 (The Voice)

GEM Retreat


N.C. Baptist Women's Retreat
A retreat for all women
October 26-27, 2018
Caraway Conference Center and Camp
Sophia, N.C.

“So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.” – Colossians 3:12-14

Scripture tells us because of our relationship with Christ we are “holy, chosen and beloved” of God, but what exactly does this mean in the day-to-day of life?

How do we live holy and set apart in a world where right seems wrong? How does the reality that God chose us as His very own affect how we view ourselves and our interactions with others? And, how can we allow God’s love for us change how we love others?

This year’s retreat will seek to answer all of these questions from God’s Word as we live our lives in light of our identity in Christ.

Prices include program fees and materials, Friday night lodging, Friday night dinner and Saturday breakfast and lunch. Lodging is first-come, first-serve via registration and is limited in the Conference Center.
