"WITHIN MINISTRIES meets women where they are at in the circumstances and stages of their lives. Leadership is empowered to serve as part of a team, calling forth gifts in themselves and others. " Bringing Grace Within to Life

I first became aware of just how important this core value is while listening to the story-telling of an early ministry leader. She shared how she'd learned of the arrest of a woman she met during an 8 week session. Her concern was immediate and heartfelt, her words simply, "This is not like her. Something happened.

As you read and reflect with us throughout 2019, consider your own core values and what you can do to strengthen them and empower others to do the same.
