Pacific Northwest American Baptist Women's Ministries (PNW- ABWM) represents the women from the American Baptist Churches in Washington and Idaho. We are affiliated with and promote the work of the American Baptist Women's Ministries of the U.S.A.

American Baptist Women’s Ministries

has a long heritage of being on the forefront of mission and ministry with women and girls worldwide. From our very roots to today, AB Women’s Ministries has addressed critical issues such as sex trafficking, poverty, equal voice, safety and security, access to water and other natural resources, leadership development, and, of course, spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. Isaiah 61:1-3, quoted again by Jesus in Luke 4:18-19, provides us inspiration to bring good news to the oppressed, bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim liberty and release…to provide for those who mourn and give them a garland instead of ashes, a mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. American Baptist Women’s Ministries—empowering women and girls to live into the fullness of who they are created by God to be. 





I am sooo… looking forward to conference.  I have missed seeing everyone and worshipping together.

The Women’s Conference has been rescheduled for October 1-3, 2021.  The conference committee has been meeting and although we thought we could do a virtual conference this spring, we feel that an in person conference is more of what we would like to have. We are praying and hoping that by October everyone would be able to receive their vaccination and the restrictions would be lifted enough that we can provide a safe and comfortable conference setting. We will still have the conference in Yakima.

Please pray for the conference committee as we continue to plan for conference and we look forward to seeing you in October.

Lorna Flannery—Conference Committee Chair

Update from the Board Meeting:

At the August meeting, the Board discussed and agreed to an addition of a new position: Coordinator of Events. Now that the North Puget Sound Area Board and Far West Area Board voted to merge into one with the Region, Coordinator of Events will take the responsibilities of the Area Boards to organize and coordinate meetings and rallies to maintain relationships among the women groups from the churches in the respective areas, and continue to promote the works of the ABWM of Pacific Northwest. Please reach out to any one of our officers if you are interested in filling the position.
