The BGCO Women’s Office of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma seeks to encourage women to embrace and echo God’s heart for the world. We assist Southern Baptist churches in Oklahoma as they seek to reach and disciple women with God’s word. We coordinate several major events throughout the year, provide consultation to women’s ministries and offer leadership development to women who are leading women in the local church.
Because God has a heart to reach the nations, our office has a priority of encouraging women to pray, give, send and go to every mission field God has entrusted to us. We encourage women to participate in missions in their local communities as well as participate in going overseas. We partner with the North American Mission Board and the International Mission Board, both agencies of the Southern Baptist Convention. We undergird the work of Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) and equip churches to use their resources. We also partner with LifeWay Christian Resources.
Our office consists of two full time employees, Kelly King and Rachael Roberson. Kelly is the Women’s Specialist and has been in this position since August, 2005. Prior to working at the BGCO, Kelly was the Women’s Ministry Director at Council Road Baptist Church in Bethany, Oklahoma.
Rachael Roberson is the Ministry Assistant for the office. She recently began her work in October 2015.
Shelley Urton serves as a Church Relations Consultant in the office on a part-time basis. Shelley helps the office with contacting churches about missions offerings and upcoming events.
Our office looks forward to assisting and serving you as you follow God’s calling to lead women.
