New to Women's Ministry Start Here

God bless you for stepping out in faith to serve as a Women’s Ministry Leader!

As you get started in this new role, my best advice to you is gather and glean. Gather up all the ideas you can and file them away. Glean the best of what you find and put it to use!

I recently wrote a new lengthy post with step-by-step advice for starting or rebuilding a women’s ministry. If that sounds like you, you’ll want to read “How to Start (or Rebuild) a Women’s Ministry“.

Below you’ll discover a wide assortment of helpful articles arranged by topic.

I encourage you to bookmark this page as new resources will continue to be added.

If you have specific topics you’d like covered, please send me an email or post a comment. Thanks!
