Have you ever been disappointed by the turnout at one of your women’s ministry events?
Almost every week I hear from leaders who are
frustrated disappointed by the lack of interest for women’s ministry events in their church.
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.
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?
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.
Perhaps you’ve noticed a drop-off in the attendance of your women’s ministry events.
Maybe the Bible studies that once drew women in abundance are all but limping along.
Last week I made my bi-annual trek to the Horticulture Class Plant Sale at our local high school. I purchased two beautiful hanging baskets, flowers for the pots on our front and back porch, and several vegetable plants and herbs for our square foot garden.
Over the last 10+ years I’ve had the opportunity to serve on three women’s ministry teams in three different churches.
Everywhere I’ve served and even in the places where I haven’t, I’ve seen this women’s ministry mistake committed over and over again. And I’m not just throwing stones, I’m 100% guilty of committing it myself.
Sunday morning in church God put an exclamation point on something He’s been wanting me to challenge other women’s ministry leaders with.
