The NAB Women’s Ministry Leadership Team is a team of five women from across the United States and Canada who seek to serve the women of NAB. We believe women play a valuable role in ministry and our mission is to serve as a source of encouragement and equipping for women leading and serving within NAB churches. Our vision is to engage with women as God works through their lives, providing leadership training opportunities and passing on resources and support that will enhance their ministry efforts.

We strive to accomplish our vision using a three-fold method: A Youth Leader Summit held once every three years, The Gathering (a youth conference/mission trip), and the Overflow giving project. Overflow Student Ministries of the NAB connects youth leaders throughout our conference with one another through the Youth Worker’s Summit, connects students throughout our conference with one another through The Gathering, and connects the student ministries throughout our conference with a project and ministry overseas through the Overflow Project.

Church Investors Fund
Church Investors Fund is a not-for-profit financial institution, an affiliated organization of the North American Baptist Conference. Our mission is to assist local churches within the United States and Canada with facilities development – helping them respond to God’s call to make disciples. Our primary purpose is to help spread the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ by providing financing for the acquisition, construction and remodeling of churches, parsonages and other projects for NAB churches and organizations to enable them to expand their ministries. These funds are made available by offering competitive investment opportunities for the constituency of the North American Baptist Conference and those associated with an NAB organization.
The North American Baptist Foundation provides biblically-based counsel to churches and individuals regarding finances. Founded in 2001, the Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization in the United States and is a registered charitable organization in Canada.

The mission of Taylor Seminary is to provide graduate-level theological education for men and women who are committed to obey the Lord in career, church and community. Our primary focus is on training for pastoral and other vocational Christian ministries.We also prepare those who are called to serve as intentional disciples of Christ in the marketplace and society.

White Cross is a ministry supported primarily by the women of the NAB. White Cross grew out of the Red Cross work being done everywhere during World War I. American Baptist women inaugurated the White Cross program in 1919 and three years later, the North American Baptist Conference women joined this effort. White Cross provides for direct and tangible participation in the Compassionate Care ministry of the North American Baptist Conference in Cameroon. White Cross participants are partnering and assisting our missionaries through the cutting and sewing of baby layettes (baby blanket, baby diaper and baby jacket), the rolling of bandages, the cutting of absorbent squares as well as in providing sheets, pillow cases, hospital supplies, guest house supplies and medical supplies. We have even received a sawmill!
