The Women’s Ministries department empowers and equips women for ministry within their church and community.
This department seeks to:
Nurture women spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally,and socially.Empower women through training enabling them to be equipped and confident in fulfilling their God-given purpose.Encourage all women to be involved in outreach to others with love and compassion, helping them to see, experience, and know Jesus Christ for themselves.There are six challenge issues that guide our purpose: women’s health; abuse; poverty; women’s workloads; lack of training, mentoring, and leadership opportunities; and illiteracy.
These issues affect women of all cultures, social standing, and nationalities. In addition, Women’s Ministries promotes programs to mentor young women and encourages and supports young women academically through a scholarship program. A handbook that explains the structure and function of this department is available for pastors, elders, and Women’s Ministries leaders in the church. A Leadership Certification Program is also available for Women’s Ministries leaders designed to empower their lives and ministry to women both spiritually and educationally. The Women’s Ministries department has many resources that are available at www.adventistwomensministries.org.
