Alabama Acteen standout addresses national gathering

St. Louis, Mo. (Jennifer Davis Rash) — Sarah Golden of Eastern Hills Baptist Church, Montgomery, was the featured 2016 National Acteens panelist during the morning session of the National WMU Missions Celebration and Annual Meeting in St. Louis, Mo.

After becoming a Christian in second grade, then rededicating her life to Christ in sixth grade, she began to grow in her faith. As a pre-teen and young teenager, “I learned so much because I let go of everything that was important and I put God first. … I was no longer faking that I was on track with God.”

Golden has been involved in Acteens for six years and has demonstrated a commitment to serving others and sharing Christ.

She shared her testimony with the national audience and led those in attendance in prayer for missionaries celebrating birthdays today.

The National Acteens Panel is comprised of teen girls who demonstrate a commitment to missions and leadership in their church, school and community.

Acteens is WMU’s missions organization for girls in grades 7–12. Through Acteens, girls grow in their relationships with God and each other as they learn about and participate in missions, develop leadership skills and become actively involved in ministry.

In other news, national WMU President Linda Cooper, of Kentucky, and Recording Secretary Tana Hartsell, of North Carolina, were re-elected to their roles for a second one-year term.
