Women's Ministry

QUESTION: What are some tips for beginning an effective women's ministry in my church?


Beginning a women's ministry is an exciting adventure, but it can be overwhelming as well! Consider these tips written by a leader of a women's ministry.

Pray -
  • For God's guidance in setting up the ministry.
  • For God to lead you to proper Bible study material for the women. A study that is beneficial to everyone involved.
  • For each woman involved in the ministry program, both leaders and participants. Pray for them daily.
Plan -
  • A leadership team should be developed. Delegate various duties and have planning sessions.
  • Set out a calendar for the year's events.
  • Begin each session on time and end on time.
  • Get your church leadership's approval on the material to be taught and the activities that are planned.
  • Keep the pastor and church leaders informed as the year progresses.
Provide -
  • Studies for new Christians and studies for those who are maturing in their spiritual growth.
  • Time for fun and socialization. This is often a separate event where women can bring unsaved friends or family members.
  • Accountability for the women. Pair up women as accountability and prayer partners.
Follow-up -
  • Ask the ladies if the program and study is meeting their needs.
  • Adjust and develop your women's ministry program as needed.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
