In its most basic form, Women’s Ministry isn’t about fancy events or complicated Bible studies; it’s about meeting women’s needs where they are. Lifeway Women’s Ministry Specialist Kelly King shares how we can create a lifestyle of women’s ministry that helps get women in the Word, providing encouragement and creating a deeply desired community. Kelly also gives us some practical ideas for troubleshooting challenges that may arise, along with basic leadership principles to help us grow as ministry wives in leadership.
- Successful women’s ministries are centered on God’s Word and create an atmosphere of friendship and authenticity.
- When trying to start a new women’s ministry, look at the needs of the women in your church and community. How can you encourage them and lead them towards Jesus?
- If you are willing to listen to feedback, the Lord can help change you to love and lead others better.
“Number one, women need encouragement. So start there. How are we encouraging women, but also how are we calling them to embrace who Christ is through their relationship and through intimacy in His word? And then how do we echo His heart for the world? God’s word gets in us, but it changes us and there needs to be an outward expression of that.”
“We are all wired very differently, and God has made us so unique. So don’t look at another leader and feel like ‘I’m just not like her.’ Walk in the person, the woman that God has created you to be. Don’t compare, be you. Because when you’re you, then that’s the best you can give someone else.”
