Introduction: Wondering if your church needs a separate women’s ministry program? Here is sound advice and support for why a church—and the women in it—need one!


Why does a church need a women’s ministry?

  • Impacts lives of participants
    • Make friends
    • Grow spiritually
    • Learn
    • Serve alongside other women
    • Builds community
  • What does Scripture say?
    • Titus 2:3–5—intergenerational teaching
    • Acts 2:42—Bible study, fellowship, prayer
    • Matthew 28:19–20—making disciples
  • Adds opportunities outside of the typical church options
  • Offers options for a variety of personality types
  • Not in competition with other ministries
    • Different groups serve different purposes
    • Benefit a variety of people and meet the needs of many

    • Address different needs and experiences

How to proceed in adding a women’s ministry program?
