This fall, N.C. Baptists will welcome mission partners into the Cary building to permanently utilize available office space. The Woman’s Missionary Union of North Carolina (WMU NC), Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina’s (BCH) Every Child Ministry and N.C. Baptist Aging Ministry (NCBAM) will occupy offices and have access to meeting rooms as the groups continue to serve on mission together in the state and beyond.

WMU NC focuses on making disciples who live on mission by providing discipleship resources to churches and individuals, offering opportunities to engage with compassion ministries and equipping people through leadership development experiences. 

“We share in this interest and excitement about the potential of additional work together in fulfillment of the Great Commission,” said Amy Pardue Boone, WMU NC’s executive director-treasurer. “We will function as an independent entity fully responsible for our employees onsite and our ministries. Similarly, we will respect the independent functioning of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina in its space.”

Michael Blackwell, BCH’s president and CEO, said the BCH’s family of ministries is thrilled about the opportunity to share space for the Every Child foster care and adoption ministry and NCBAM. 

“NCBAM is poised to increase its outreach in the greater Triangle area. Having access to both office and conference room space is a true answer to prayer,” Blackwell said.

“The Triangle area is ripe for an increase in our foster care options. Once again, BCH and the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina have joined hands to get Baptist churches involved in our Every Child initiative to find foster homes for children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned.”

Several offices and meeting spaces will also be available for church planters in the Triangle to use beginning in 2023.
