Our Rich History
The captivating journey of the Woman's Baptist Educational & Missionary Convention of South Carolina commenced in the heart of Columbia, South Carolina, precisely on April 11, 1888, within the cherished walls of Zion Baptist Church. A trailblazer named Mrs. Fannie E. Davis was chosen as the inaugural President – a visionary at the helm.
Since that historic moment, sixteen extraordinary leaders have graced the presidency, each leaving an indelible mark on the organization's evolution and prosperity. Their dedication and fervor have propelled the convention to new heights.
Today, the legacy continues to flourish under the dynamic leadership of our 17th President, Mrs. Mary Alice Graham.
