WMU debuts new Internet site at SBC

SALT LAKE CITY (BP)–Woman’s Missionary Union debuted its latest Internet site June 8 in its exhibit at the Southern Baptist Convention in Salt Lake City. The new site, www.WMU.com, is the organization’s second site. The first one was launched in October 1995. “The new web site is much more interactive than the first one,” Lisa Rowell, WMU webmaster, said. “It is not only designed to help the visitor learn about WMU, but also links the person to ministry opportunities and missionaries around the world.” The web site’s main page includes a variety of options: WMU organizations and language, WMU Foundation, ministry opportunities, missionary spotlight, hot links, just for missionaries, important dates, resources, missions leadership, and What’s new. Following is a brief description of each section:
