NABWU is a collaboration of the Women's Departments of seventeen member bodies. The Executive Director and/or President of each member body makes up the NABWU Executive Board. This collaboration includes well over 4 million Baptist women across North America.
Six officers carry out the day to day operations of NABWU:
President // Moreen Sharp, NABWU's first president from Western Canada, currently lives in Pincher Creek, Alberta, just east of the Rocky Mountains. But because she and her husband are particularly gifted in transitional ministry, they move from place to place, helping churches work through issues that need to be addressed before they call a new pastor.
