Women's Ministry at FBC Jackson


It is our desire that how and what we do in women’s ministry aligns with the mission laid out by our pastors: Making, maturing, and multiplying disciples who are rooted in the gospel, watered with the Word, and nurtured by the church – for the bearing of much fruit, for the good of all nations, and for the glory of God.

Women's Events


Gatherings in the evening or on a Saturday morning provide an opportunity for food, fellowship, and learning from other women. These events typically focus on hearing from women within our own church body.

See topics from recent events.

Women's Retreats


During the winter, the women of First Baptist typically get away for an overnight retreat at the Linden Valley Baptist Conference Center for a time of worship, teaching, and fellowship.

See an overview of recent retreats.

Women's Conferences


As an alternative to getting away, conferences are periodically hosted at the church for the women of FBC.

See a list of recent conferences.

During the Spring and Fall semesters, FBC University (FBCU) classes are offered on Sunday evenings at 5:00 pm. FBCU classes incorporate various topics, formats, and teachers. Classes taught by and for women are periodically offered through FBCU.
