Here’s the release:
DALLAS – Nina Pinkston recently was named interim executive director-treasurer of Woman’s Missionary Union of Texas.
Texas WMU President Nelda Taylor said Pinkston was selected for the position because of her strong administrative skills as well as her passion for mission work in Texas and around the globe.
“Nina is a strong missions leader,” Taylor said. “She is a praying woman who has been on the mission field, so she understands the missionary heart. She has a world perspective and a heart for Texas.”
Pinkston and her husband Glen served as religious education consultants for the European Baptist Convention. In that position, they helped churches in 24 countries strengthen their Sunday School programs, stewardship efforts, deacons ministries, children’s ministries and WMU.
Pinkston, a member of Travis Avenue Baptist Church in Fort Worth, recently completed a four-year stint as vice president of Texas WMU. As interim executive director, she looks to stimulate interest in mission work.
“I believe that God is asking WMU of Texas to step out and lead others to reach the lost in Texas, and I would ask WMU leaders throughout our great state to join me in that task,” she said.
Pinkston holds a bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech University and a master’s degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Carolyn Porterfield resigned the post of Texas WMU executive director-treasurer in October. The Texas WMU Personnel Committee is searching for the next executive director.
