Women’s Home and Overseas Missionary Society (WHOMS)


WHOMS serves as a financial support system for the world mission outreach of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. The goal is to win the world for Jesus Christ at home and overseas, so that — through the power of the Holy Spirit — Christ is exalted and God is glorified.

At Penn Ave Church, this ministry and board are committed to ensuring we serve and support the Church, our members, Baltimore City and the surrounding community, and the world. We strive to be worthy and honorable custodians of the gifts we receive on behalf of those we serve.

We are comprised of six departments. For more information visit our website at www.WHOMSBaltimore.org.

I always joke that others may have more money, look better, etc. but no one is going to outserve me. My parents always served the church and the community so I picked up this mantle early on. The needs are great in the Upton Community where our church is located. I want to leave a legacy of service and make a difference for however long God allows me to reside on earth. When it’s all said and done, “May the Work I’ve done speak for me. When I stand before my God, I want to hear him say well done.”
