Since 1976, the Alma Hunt Offering has been a joint venture of Woman's Missionary Union of Virginia (WMUV), the Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV) and the Virginia Baptist Mission Board (VBMB). The portion of the offering we receive provides funding for 100% of WMUV missions and ministries. Through these projects and ministries, our goal is to inspire and equip women to influence the world for Christ.


Your gifts to the Alma Hunt offering allow us to offer mission awareness and other educational opportunities so that women, students and children are equipped to engage in missions. Some of these include: CrossRoads Camp and Conference Center, HOPEevents, HOPEtraining, Mom & Me, Shine, Get-Away and Human Exploitation. Through programs such as Abigail Girls, State Panelists, LITe (Leadership in Training extended), myMission Virginia and Ministry Councils, we offer opportunities to grow leaders of all ages. The Standing Rock mission trip provides opportunities for hands-on-missions - either by being a trip participant or collecting/providing the needed resources. By partnering with VBMB, mission opportunities with Ghana and More Than Nets, Romania Baptists Ruth School and Naomi Center allow us to reach people across the globe. Our Multi-cultural Initiatives and new Sisters Who Care Initiatives have increased the numbers of women and children involved in WMUV projects and ministries.


We ask for both your prayers and support for the Alma Hunt Offering for Virginia Missions. We cannot do it without you.
