The purpose of Texas Baptist Ministry Assistants (TBMA) shall be to provide continuing education, to encourage professional excellence, to offer spiritual enrichment, and to promote a support system among members.
Membership of TBMA shall be current employees, retirees, or volunteers in a Baptist church, association, hospital, state convention, state newspaper, school, children's home, retirement home, or any other Baptist entity. Positions included are administrative, financial, printing, receptionist, secretarial, and other ministry assistant positions.
TBMA has been in existence since 1987. In 2002 the organization voted to change its name from TASBS (Texas Association of Southern Baptist Secretaries) to TBMA. The organization felt like it better represented the changing titles and attitudes of the Secretary/Ministry Assistant. We also felt like the name change would include more people from around the state. We continue to have the same goals and purpose as we have had in the past, but just an updated look. Come and get to know us.
