It’s time for another episode of Gather and Glean!
Episode 3 focuses on searching for a speaker.
Serving in Women’s Ministry for 15 years, I am passionate about equipping and encouraging other leaders. I thank God for His calling into Women’s Ministry leadership. I long to reach more women, providing them with opportunities for growth and service. I am a wife and mother to two boys (teen and tween) and a spoiled miniature Schnauzer.
I’m taking up the position of the Monday morning quarterback.
I’ve led and served on teams that have navigated the Christmas season well and some that have not.
I am super-excited to share a brand-new resource with you all today!
I have been wanting to create some videos for you all for months! But it wasn’t until recently that I was able to see how God was using my battle with technical difficulties and life circumstances to get me to this very place.
Most of us probably realize the majority of the women we serve struggle to read the Bible on a regular basis.
And if we’re being real, we’d admit that many of us struggle to read the Bible on a regular basis too.
I have a special treat for you all today!
I had the opportunity to get a sneak peak of the newest book by Janet Thompson, Mentoring for All Seasons: Sharing Life’s Experiences and God’s Faithfulness.
If you’ve been doing Bible study for any length of time, you’ve watched your women’s Bible study attendance dwindle as each week passes.
The group starts of strong and healthy, but one by one the group members start to drop off like flies…
How would you describe your women’s ministry team?
Grab a pen and make a quick list. Be as honest as you can.
What words did you use?
According to the research reported in Barna Trends 2017 (affiliate link) 1 in 5 adults regularly or often feels lonely (pg 112).
And when “nearly half of women (43%) say they do not feel any emotional support at all from church” (pg 153) we can assume that loneliness is a church problem too!
I was 34 years old when I stepped into my first role as a Women’s Ministry Director.
I had taken on a position that had been vacant for 1 ½ years.
