Stonecroft shares the Gospel with women worldwide. More than 25,000 Stonecroft-equipped volunteers regularly invite the women of their communities to start a relationship with the God of the Universe through His Son Jesus Christ.
Volunteers across the U.S. and in more than 30 other countries use Stonecroft's outreach resources, training, and Stonecroft Bible Studies to share the Gospel. And, for more than 75 years, Stonecroft women have relied upon prayer to advance our mission.
Stonecroft is a 501(c) 3 non- denominational nonprofit organization, a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), and a recipient of Charity Navigator's coveted 4-star rating for sound fiscal management.
Mrs. Helen Duff Baugh established The Christian Business Women's Council of America in 1938 as a dinner program in which the Gospel of Jesus Christ was presented to career women in cities across America. In 1948, Miss Mary E. Clark, former businesswoman and missionary in Maine, joined Mrs. Baugh to help lead the rapidly growing evangelistic and missionary organization, which by this time reached out to women in all stages and walks of life.
When the ministry's international headquarters re-located in 1952 to the Stonecroft land in Kansas City, Missouri, the group of outreach ministries took on the property's name.
