Making an Impact

Since its beginning in 1888, the Women's Missionary Union (WMU) has become the largest Protestant missions organization for women in the world, with a membership of approximately 1 million. 

WMU's main purpose is to educate and involve adults, youth, children, and preschoolers in the cause of Christian missions. Although originally geared towards women, girls, and preschoolers, both genders are active participants in WMU organizations and ministries today. WMU is a mission-focused organization with the goal that every person has the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel. WMU encourages women to pray for and give to missions, to learn and to educate others about missions, and to develop spiritually toward a missions lifestyle through their support of the local church.
