ABCUSA Office of the General Secretary Welcomes Inaugural Women in Ministry Intern
On January 7, 2019, the ABCUSA Office of the General Secretary welcomed Rev. Rebecca Driscoll, the first person to be accepted for a new Women in Ministry Internship program.
The internship provides a nine-month opportunity for a woman in ministry to serve in a national leadership setting within American Baptist Churches USA. The funding for the internship was provided by a generous anonymous donor, with total funding available for up to three women to complete the Internship program.
Driscoll, a recent seminary graduate, will gain experience within the full scope of national denominational activity as a member of the ABCUSA Office of the General Secretary working in Valley Forge, Pa. Her work with the denomination will include mentorship and interaction with a broad range of ABCUSA ministries (international, national, regional, and local church). She will work closely with the General Secretary and Associate General Secretary for Women in Ministry, along with many additional staff members of the Office of the General Secretary and national partners.
