Dear PNBC Family,

It's Time to Say Thank You to our PNBC Women!

March is designated as Women's History Month and  we know women are important every day!

As President of PNBC, I wanted to provide an opportunity to highlight a few women who have made an impact on PNBC and beyond. This can be the start of something big!

Please see this as an invitation to submit  names of PNBC women  who are  distinguishing  themselves nationally and within  our region and states for future publications. This is just a beginning of a way forward for PNBC to celebrate women who so often are in the background, but without whom much of what we do would be less successful.

Now as point of personal privilege, allow me to start this moment in Women’s History Month by highlighting the love of my life.

It’s Time to Say Thank You to Mrs. Margaret M. Peoples!First Lady Margaret Peoples, wife of PNBC President David Peoples

Margaret M. Peoples has been married to the President of the Progressive National Baptist Convention,  Rev. David R. Peoples for 24 years! She serves graciously as the First Lady of  Jabez  Missionary Baptist Church of Lexington, KY.Mrs. Peoples is a “people person!” She says her desire is to “pour out what God has to offer to everyone as she serves as a living example of what it means to be free in Christ.”

She is passionate about the love of Christ and she lets her light shine. PNBC will be  richly blessed by her commitment to God, her family and to kingdom building work of the PNBC.
