The 2024 BMAA Ladies’ Conference
Sponsered and Hosted by the National WMA
The 2024 BMAA Ladies’ Conference is quickly approaching!  Hosted by the National Women’s Missionary Auxiliary, the conference will be held April 17, 2024 in Branson, Mo at the beautiful Chateau on the Lake.  You are cordially invited to join us for an empowering and enriching Ladies Conference with captivating breakout sessions. This event promises to be a gathering of inspiration, growth, and connection, designed exclusively for women who are eager to embrace their potential and cultivate every aspect of their life to be more like Jesus.  The enlightening breakout sessions will help us dive deeper into specific areas of our walk as we seek to yield our lives to the One we strive to emulate.  This year we are excited to be offering select breakout sessions in Spanish.  Click the link for more information on our guest speakers and conference details.  We can’t wait to see you there! 
A Word From Our WMA President 


Dear Ladies of the BMAA,

I would like to introduce myself as the newly elected President of the National WMA.  I am Brenda Hornaday and have been in the BMAA my entire life.  My father was Gilford Vaughn, who pastored BMA churches in Texas and Oklahoma until the age of 92.  I have been married to Jack Hornaday for 53 years and served with him while he was the Director of the BMA of Arkansas Children’s Home for 27 years.  We are presently members of Sheridan Terrace Baptist Church in Palestine, Texas.  I have served in WMA as a Bible Study and Missions Teacher and in various offices in the local, district, Arkansas State, and National WMA.  Jack and I have 2 daughters, 6 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren.

I am excited about the work of the National WMA.  Any women’s ministry of the churches of the BMAA can be a part of the National WMA and we want to encourage each lady in our BMA churches to get involved in women’s ministry and help us to further the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our theme for the 2023-2024 associational year is “More Like Jesus Less Like Me” John 3:30. Our project is the Jeevan Prakash School in India and our goal is $75,000.  We have a new blog on the National WMA website at  Each Monday, a member of the Inspirational Resources Committee will post an encouraging article to the blog.  Please check it out!

I am willing to travel anywhere to speak and represent the National WMA at your local, district, or state meeting, no matter how small or large the group.  We want you to know each group is an important part of the National WMA.

Yours in Christ,

Brenda Hornaday
