"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. I must go to her." Her lack of judgement took my breath away. There was no questioning, only empathy and deep concern.
WITHIN MINISTRIES creates an environment of trust, one in which women can safely share their stories without fear of judgement. Participants get to know themselves and each other in a meaningful, non-judgmental, Christ-centered way. For many, this is a new and unfamiliar experience.
Feedback from participants often includes gratitude for the personal growth, the bonds formed with others, and the quest to know God in a deeper, more intimate way. This month we invite you to reflect on the ways in which you
connect with God and others
throughout your daily life.
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.
