“Today like never before, women are hurting. They are overwhelmed with responsibilities and inundated with lies. Many come from unhealthy and dysfunctional backgrounds that have left them ill- equipped to handle the pressures they are facing. Due to the demands of life and the breakdown of the family, many feel isolated and alone. When women walk into our churches, they are looking for someone to care about them, encourage them, and listen to them—they desperately need the body of Christ. They want to know that they are not alone, and they need the hope that a personal relationship with Jesus can provide. While every church is unique in personality, size, and resources, we can all be intentional about ministering to the hearts of the women we encounter.” (Kerry Clarensau, Assemblies of God Women’s Ministry)
The Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Women’s Ministry sponsors three distinct approaches to meet the needs of the women of our churches and their surrounding communities: Big Events, Small Groups, and One on One Connections. One of the major “Big Events” of our Women’s Ministry is the Annual Women’s Banquet. In addition to this event, there are two others; the Women’s Convention held during the week of Camp Meeting, and the Women’s Conference, which comes in the fall of the year. There are also WM district rallies in the spring and fall. We are continually challenging the ladies in our churches to think about ways that we can better minister to the ladies in our local churches and surrounding communities through “Small Groups” and “One on One Connections”.
