Michigan WMU 62nd annual meeting

In our 62 years as the Woman’s Missionary Union of the Baptist State Convention of Michigan, we have met yearly to elect our officers for their new terms of service. This year’s meeting was unique and a first in our history. We met via zoom conference calling. We gathered online to encourage and pray for one another.

We want to thank Sharon Greer, (Orchard Church) who has served as our state WMU president for 5 terms (2015-2020). Sharon you are appreciated for your leadership and dedication to our team as you encouraged a love for missions, missionaries and mission’s discipleship around our state and in our great churches.

Congratulations to Odelle Cadwell, (Temple of Faith Church) who was elected unanimously as our new state WMU president beginning her first term (2020-2021). We look forward to your leadership and guidance as you move us forward into the future.

Thank you and congratulations to Elaine Hill, (Warren Woods Baptist Church) elected unanimously to serve an additional term as our Recording Secretary (2018-2020).

We are grateful for our officers serving in their respected associations, we appreciate the hands-on leadership, encouragement and distribution of recourses to our churches.
