A church mother usually an older, highly respected woman, she has lived many years and has experienced, some of the workings of God.

Baptist Church Mothers serve primarily a supportive, care taking role for the pastor, young congregants, and church families. They are generally mature older women with many years of experience and service in the church. While Mothers’ specific duties differ from church to church, they usually fill many of the same roles

A Mother in the Baptist Church is expected to assist the pastor with various tasks, including ministering to the church’s young congregants, providing representation during church activities and attending to the pastor’s wardrobe; for example, cleaning his robes. A Church Mother also prays for the pastor and communicates with the church deacons to ensure that he has everything he needs for ministry. If problems arise within or among the congregation, a Church Mother brings those problems to the pastor’s attention.

Baptist Church Mothers set an example for younger congregants (especially women) in a number of ways. For example, they may dress in a certain way to demonstrate appropriately conservative Christian attire. Church Mothers also refrain from gossiping and idleness and aspire to Christlike character and actions in all circumstances. Additionally, Church Mothers are expected to raise their children to be godly and to act with integrity.
