The Executive Committee of Woman’s Missionary Union of North Carolina (WMU-NC) chose Robin C. Bass as its interim executive director-treasurer during a recent meeting.
The decision was made June 7. Bass, part-time minister of education and volunteer worship leader at Hermon Baptist Church in Waxhaw, will be working part time at WMU-NC as well.
“I love missions and God is continually burdening my heart for people who are lost and need someone to tell them of Jesus,” said Bass in the press release. “I believe God has uniquely prepared me for this role at this point in my life.”
A press release indicated that leaders thought Bass will work two or three days a week depending on scheduling demands.
Bass previously served on the WMU-NC Executive Board and chaired the Camp Committee. She has continued to be involved in aspects of WMU-NC and currently serves as chair of the Heck-Jones Offering Committee. She recently completed a master of divinity in Christian Ministry at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest. She has her bachelor’s in zoology from N.C. State University in Raleigh and another master’s degree (business administration) from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C. She and her husband, Henry, are involved in the N.C. Baptist Men’s disaster relief ministry and have been state coordinators through the North American Mission Board’s church renewal ministry. They have been married 27 years.
