What Does God Expect from Women’s Ministry?
While women’s ministry can easily get caught up in Bible study themes and Pinterest-worthy decor, God’s heart calls for a ministry that is rooted in him. In order to understand what women’s ministry should look like today, Gena explores Scripture to establish what this ministry was meant to be and how women are called minister to other women.
Every church needs a team of women who serve in God’s name. Women’s Ministry with Purpose will show you how to rediscover the true purpose of your women’s ministry and gain support from your church’s leadership. More importantly, it will breathe new life into leaders and volunteers, giving you practical advice for organizing, training, and supporting the women around you.
Gena B. McCown has served in a ministry leadership capacity for twenty years, including her current role as the women’s ministry educator at Christian Leaders Institute in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She has also spent the last five years mentoring and supporting future ministry leaders through the Women’s Ministry Council. A native of south Florida, Gena and her husband of twenty years, Justin, have three daughters: Casey, Shelby, and Naomi. Learn more about Gena at www.genamccown.wordpress.com.
