Mindy Jamison will be honored at this year’s National WMU Missions Celebration and Annual Meeting in St. Louis. On Monday evening, June 13, Mindy will be presented the Dellanna West O’Brien Award for Women’s Leadership Development by the WMU Foundation.
Mindy is co-director of the Friendship Baptist Center in Des Moines. The Friendship Baptist Center exists to build relationships in this poverty impacted community by offering empowerment through education, development and spiritual growth opportunities for kids, youth and adults. The Center reaches approximately 8,000 people annually, through Hunger, After-School and Conversational English ministries.
The WMU Missions Celebration is being held at the Ferrara Theatre at America’s Center, 701 Convention Plaza, St. Louis.
The evening session begins at 5:00 p.m. Mindy’s award will be presented following a message by Dr. Jeff Iorg, President of Golden Gate Theological Seminary.
We’d like to invite any of you who are in St. Louis to attend. It was a great honor for Iowa WMU to nominate Mindy for this award and so gratifying to learn that she will be the recipient. Well deserved! God is good.
