Equilateral triangle (Trinity: God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each being
equal in the Godhead, thus reminding us of the author and foundation of
mission through missions and our power for helping to extend the Kingdom)

The equilateral triangle also points us toward being witnesses of and to that
work through missions (preaching, teaching, healing, and serving).

The convention's name, a cross, the convention's official beginning year,
motto, and a globe

At the apex of triangle, is the Cross with a sunburst effect suggesting the

The Young Adult Missionary Department is composed of men and women ages 21
through 40 years of age.
The department was organized in 1964 to encourage more involvement and Christian
witnessing within this age group. The department serves as a “bridge” between the
Senior and Youth Departments. Use of individuals and their talents in this age group
can strengthen all areas of the church.
The primary purposes of the Young Adult Department are:
To stimulate a true missionary spirit of this age group and to
awaken a deeper interest in the work of home and foreign missions.
To strengthen the missionary circle in the Baptist church, which
bridges the gap between the youth department and the senior
department.
To help support the financial objectives of the Woman’s Baptist
Home and Foreign Missionary Convention of North Carolina and to
cooperate with its program.
18
The department meets in their own session at the One Day Session, the
Statewide Leaders Workshop, the Annual Session and the Family Missions
Conference.
They also hold a Young Adult Retreat the first Saturday in June. This is a
time when Young Adults can come together to fellowship, receive
training, deepen their own spiritual understanding and insight into God’s
will and share ideas that will help other young adults.
The Young Adult Director and Associate Director are elected by the
Woman’s State Convention. The Director has general oversight of the
Young Adult Department and is responsible to the Woman’s Convention
for the advancement and operation of the Young Adult Department.
Officers consist of President, four Vice Presidents, Secretary, Assistant
Secretary, Worship Chairperson, Choir Director, Assistant Choir Director,
Pianist, and Historian.
19
Youth Department consists of a Supervisor, an
Associate Supervisor, twelve (12) advisors, local
supervisors, and youth officers as stated in the
By-Laws of the Youth Department.
Youth officers for the state department usually serve
in a learning position. They only work when the
State Convention is in session, unless otherwise
directed by the Woman’s Convention through the
State Youth Supervisor.
