American Baptist Women's Ministries







Greetings ABC Michigan. 

I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Brenda Threatt and I am the newly installed President of American Baptist Women, Michigan Region. 

I have been a member of First Baptist Church of Detroit located in Southfield for almost 20 years.  While at First Baptist I have served in the positions of Assistant Treasurer, Treasurer, Chair of Worship and Arts, Assistant Moderator and Moderator.   I currently serve as Chair of Stewardship and Finance.  I also taught the middle/high school Sunday School class along with my husband, Kevin. 

Kevin and I have been married for 11 years.  We have three adult children and two grandchildren.  We enjoy attending concerts, watching Jeopardy and have caught the cruising bug.  We recently returned from an Alaskan cruise.  Kevin is an Oakland County Juvenile Probation Officer.  Since I do not work outside the home, I volunteer my time with many worthy causes and organizations such as American Cancer Society, Friends of the Southfield Public Library and Southfield Commission on Senior Adults.  I serve as the secretary for Metropolitan Detroit Association of American Baptist Churches and interim treasurer for MDA American Baptist Women.

In June I attended the ABW Ministries National Board meeting and the American Baptist Churches Biennial.  I look forward to working with such a distinguished organization of dedicated and God-inspired women. 

Please feel free to invite me to ABW activities in your area and at your churches.  Please call or text me at 248.808.4133.  You may also email me at blgct2008@gmail.com.  I know the next three years will be filled with excitement, expectations and joy.  I also know that with God all things are possible. 

May God richly bless all of you.

Brenda Threatt
