EMPOWERING ASSOCIATIONAL WMU LEADERS
Missions involvement provides numerous benefits: an increase in the numbers of persons who are birthed into the kingdom, support for the work of missionaries, and enrichment to the lives of those who join us. It is a delight to know that God calls and allows us to join Him in the grand enterprise of winning the world to Christ.
Associational WMU Leaders are critical links in our task of igniting and renewing a passion for missions in local Baptist Churches. We are grateful that your have committed yourself to passing on your love for missions through your service to God as an associational WMU Leader. We value your dedication, expertise, and experience. Below you will find helpful information to help engage, equip and empower you in your service to God.

NEW START INCENTIVE PLAN INFORMATION
National WMU made several changes to the New Start Incentive plan. These changes have occurred because very few churches subscribe to curriculum after they receive their free material. Read below to find what stays the same and what has changed:
Stays the same:
- Curriculum still for new starts
- Still state initiated — means the forms still come to the state WMU office to be signed by the Exec. Dir. and then sent to Birmingham
- There is now a 50% discount on essential curriculum for all age-levels. Churches now have to purchase materials but at a discounted rate for one year.
- There is no limit on how many they can order at the 50% discount
- The discount only applies to essential curriculum pieces and no other WMU products or resources, i.e., achievement plan books, badges, etc.
