Coed Ministry Leaders

Coed ministry is a growing ministry! WMU works to equip men and women for missions in many ways.

Leaders are the people who show the way and help WMU fulfill its purpose. The term leaders is a designation for those who lead. Leadership is the process of leading or the influence a person exerts. WMU needs both!

Leaders for Adults on Mission may be called a leader or teacher for a group and a coordinator for more than one group.
