BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (BP)–Woman’s Missionary Union has announced it is facilitating the launch of a new network for seminary graduates in Christian social ministries and church social work.
“The purpose of this network is to help re-establish and support the Baptist culture of church social work,” said Wanda S. Lee, executive director of the Southern Baptist auxiliary. “Those who have been called to work in church social ministries will be affirmed and encouraged as they connect with others who share their passion for service.”
In partnership with Baptist educational institutions, the Church Social Work Network will provide social work practitioners with opportunities for CEU credit, conferences, professional development and networking, fellowship, reunions, and more.
