Baptist Nursing Fellowship

Baptist Nursing Fellowship

Healthcare professionals have the unique skill set to imitate Jesus’ ministry in their lives. They can use their professions as platforms for sharing the gospel. Baptist Nursing Fellowship is designed to help health-care professionals utilize their talents to fulfill their desires to serve God alongside other people.


Baptist Nursing Fellowship provides Christian professional fellowship; promotes continuing education and growth for members and nurse missionaries; and encourages nursing service evolving from a personal commitment to Jesus Christ.


The objectives for accomplishing these purposes on a local, regional, national, and international basis are:

1. To empower members through studying the Bible, worshipping, witnessing, and sharing of Christian experiences.

2. To present and participate in planned nursing and health care programs in a variety of areas of interest to nurses based on assessed need of the members.

3. To expand global Christian nursing service and personal involvement through mission support, education, and health care activities.

2017 BNF Annual Meeting
September 8-10
Garaywa Camp and Conference Center
Clinton, Mississippi

This year's annual meeting theme is based on the Scripture passage Micah 6:8. The Lord requires us to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.  

You'll be inspired by Bible studies led by national WMU's executive director, Sandy Wisdom-Martin and Pastor Trent DeLoach of International Baptist Church in Clarkston, Georgia. Clarkston is known by many as the "Ellis Island of the South." Over the past 25 years Clarkston have received more than 40,000 refugees. 

You'll be encouraged by the fellowship and empowered by the contact hours focus on loved ones' addictions and effectively working with multiple generations. You'll be engaged in missions projects in and around Clinton and Jackson.

You'll be prayerful as you experience the Prayer Path and you'll be hopeful as we feature a Silent Auction benefitting our Student Endowment. We want to do all we can to equip the next generation. Please be generous with your donated items to the auction and with funds given to the endowment for auction items. 

And you'll not want to miss music and worship led by Tim Walker and musicians from FBC Jackson. 

Cost: $232.50 includes registration fee, two contact hours, two nights' lodging (double occupancy), and five meals. We have secured lodging at Garaywa and area hotels.

Start making your plans now. We look forward to seeing you this summer in Clinton, MS!

Register here or call (205) 991-4091and we will assist you with your registration. 

Registration deadline is August 28th.

BNF Annual Meeting Schedule


Pray for BNF

Because Baptist Nursing Fellowship members know they are meeting spiritual needs along with physical needs, it is important to cover this ministry and its nurses in prayer. Pray the nurses of BNF would rely on the Great Physician as they serve and meet the needs of others every day. Pray your state and national BNF would grow and expand to other states where there is no current BNF. Pray for missionary nurses and the challenges they face on the missions field. Members will receive a prayer enewsletter the 6th of every month.
