Woman’s Missionary Union:
What is WMU? WMU challenges Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God. This radical involvement happens as WMU in a church leads people to:
- Experience missions personally through ministry and witness
- Develop missions awareness
- Support mission work through prayer and giving
- Nurture lifestyles that reflect commitment and obedience to the Great Comission
Shades Crest offers a comprehensive missions education program for all ages that includes opportunities to learn about and participate in ministry activities locally and around the world.

As a GA I will do my best to live a missions lifestyle that honors God by learning about missions, praying for missions, giving to missions, doing missions and participating in the work of the church.
As a Royal Ambassador I will do my best:
- To become a well-informed, responsible follower of Christ;
- To have a Christ-like concern for all people;
- To learn how to carry the message of Christ around the world;
- To work with others in sharing Christ; and
- To keep myself clean and healthy in mind and body.
