Women's Ministries is a place to address the spiritual, emotional, physical, and social needs of women in the church.
The Department of Women's Ministries exists to uphold, encourage, and challenge Adventist women in their pilgrimage as disciples of Jesus Christ and members of His world church.
Vision: Women empowered and nurtured to fulfill their God-given potential.
Mission: Our mission is in the larger sense common to all Christians—that of uplifting Christ in the Church and in the world. But more specifically, we are called to:
Nurture—Reach Up to God
Empower—Reach Across with God
Outreach—Reach Out with God
Six Challenges . . .
The Department of Women's Ministries chose to address six critical issues that particularly impact women around the world. These challenges are:
Lack of mentoring and leadership training
As Christians, seeking to follow the example of Jesus, we believe that it is important to do what we can to meet the needs of all people, developing trust, and helping them to find the answers to their needs. For this reason, Women's Ministries has chosen to focus much of its attention to these challenges.
Before much can be done to address most of these needs, a person must be able to read. Almost one billion adults cannot read; about three-fourths of these are women. They cannot read the instructions on a medicine bottle, fill out an employment form, or read the directions for a household cleaner. Neither can they read a Sabbath School lesson to a child nor read the Bible. Like many in the Dark Ages, they must get their Gospel from someone else.
These are certainly challenges for everyone in the church. Women's Ministries invites all to join together to share the Good News of the Gospel.
