Upcoming Events

BGAV Dinner, November 12, 2019

Once again we will host a time of fellowship over a meal at the BGAV.  The meal will take place Tuesday, November 12, at Bonsack Baptist in Roanoke and you will register and pay for it through the BGAV.  When you sign up for the meal, be sure to select VBWIM as your group!  More details will be available here when registration opens.

Feast, May 1, 2020

In an effort to make Feast easier to get to for folks in different parts of the state, this year we are looking to host the event in Charlottesville.  Mark your calendars now and watch for details in the coming months as we are beginning to make preparations for our 12th annual Feast.

BWIM Mentoring Program

Baptist Women in Ministry’s Mentoring Program offers new ministers an opportunity to participate in two years of intentional mentoring with a seasoned Baptist minister and a group of peers. The BWIM Mentoring program is open to Baptist women who have served in their current area of ministry for less than three years and are ministering in churches, chaplaincy, non-profit work, and other “outside-the-box” settings. Applications accepted through September 15, 2019.
