One of the core responsibilities of national WMU® is to equip leaders for missions involvement in churches and associations. It is a privilege and a responsibility we take seriously. We all know the better equipped a person is for a job, the better they perform in the work place. This is also true for “volunteer” jobs in the church and association.
