Women’s Ministry

Women’s Ministry

Vision Statement

Our vision is to uplift, educate, support, equip and empower God’s women, whom we affectionately call OUR SISTERS.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to:

  1. Foster spiritual growth and renewal among women.
  2. Affirm that women are of inestimable worth by virtue of their creation and redemption, and equip them for service in the church and around the community.
  3. Minister to the broad spectrum of women’s needs across the life span, being sensitive to multi-cultural and multi-ethnic perspectives.
  4. Liaise and cooperate with other specialized departments of the church to facilitate the ministry to women and of women.
  5. Build goodwill among women closest to us; that encourages bonds of friendship, support for church service, and the creative exchange of ideas and information.
  6. Mentor and encourage Christian women, creating paths for their involvement in the church as they reach for their potential in Christ.
  7. Find ways and means to challenge each woman of God to use her gifts to complement the talents of others as they work side by side to further the global mission of the church.

“It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.” Ephesians 4:11-12
