Imagine if girls in all of our churches truly gained an understanding of what it means to be “obediently involved in the mission of God.” To be intentional in every aspect of their lives to advance the kingdom of God. WMU provides resources to help guide young girls to a greater understanding of God’s work in the world and how they can join Him in His work. We are here to support you whether you lead a missions small group or simply want ideas to engage the world.

MISSIONS DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS for girls
Girls in Action® (GAs) is an exciting and fun-filled missions discipleship group for girls ages 6-11 or grades 1-6. This provides an environment for active learning, scripture learning, and scriptural application through a Christ-based peer and prayer group for girls. GAs also serves as an opportunity for girls to develop leadership skills and engage in missions. Through learning experiences that teach the Biblical basis of missions churches have a great way to start a girls’ ministry in your local church.
Changing a girl’s heart through Girls in Action
Girls will learn how to demonstrate the missions concepts of praying, giving and doing missions. As a GA, girls will be able to learn how to develop a lifestyle of missions. They will be able to learn about missionaries from all over their world and understand the work that they do in their country. Girls will be able to learn how to apply the Bible to their lives and learn how to pray and intercede for others. GAs cultivates an atmosphere of acceptance for girls and offers opportunities for parents to serve. This level of missions discipleship will help create an awareness of their role in the Great Commission and prompt a spirit of Gospel urgency. .
What leaders are saying...
"We currently have 15 girls in GA. For many of them their moms were not raised in a Southern Baptist church so they had no background in missions education. So while my GAs are learning about missions, their moms are as well. Our pastor's wife in particular has begun reading mission books and she was excited to read Rosalie Hunt's book on the 125 year history of WMU. I have given her a subscription to Missions Mosaic. One other mom who was raised as Independent Baptist rode with me to GA JAM last year. We talked about missions the entire time down and back and she was like a sponge soaking up info. My moms love going to GA JAM and I usually have several to go. Right now the moms are on my radar screen as well as my girls." – Susan Bryant, Graeffenburg Baptist Church
