Registration is now open for our annual Virginia Baptist Women in Ministry dinner at the BGAV meeting, held this year in Hampton Roads. We are grateful to Hampton Baptist Church who will host our time together and provide our meal. The time will be spent getting to know one another better and reflecting on all that has changed in our ministries since last we were able to gather in person at BGAV – back in 2019!

Guests & spouses of VBWIM folk, as well as those interested in learning more about VBWIM, are also warmly invited to attend.  You don’t need to be a woman in ministry to come support women in ministry!

While the event is free, we do need folks to register so we can provide the church a count of how many meals we need. Register online.
