The Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) has a 117 year history at Ephesus. Led by Director Arlene Brooks, the WMU is made up of several different organizations including Mary Evelyn Fredenburg Women on Mission (MEFWOM), Business Women on Mission (BWOM), Acteens (girls grades 7-12), Girls in Action (girls grades 1-6), and Mission Friends (boys and girls ages 3-5).
