RICHMOND, Va. — A longtime Baptist minister and social worker will be recommended Feb. 8 to be the ninth executive of Woman’s Missionary Union of Virginia (WMUV) — the first African-American to hold the post in the organization’s 140-year existence.

Valerie Carter, associate pastor for glocal (global-local) ministries at Bon Air Baptist Church, Richmond, Va., will be nominated as executive director/treasurer by WMUV’s board of trustees.

Carter has been on the staff of Bon Air Baptist for the past 10 years. Earlier she was associate of Christian social ministries for WMUV for five years, developing Hope Builders/Christian Women’s Job Corps sites across Virginia.

A native of Long Island, N.Y., Carter holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Adelphi University in Garden City, New York, a master of divinity degree from the School of Theology at Virginia Union University in Richmond and a doctor of ministry degree from Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond.
