#COVMW Dep’t of Women Ministries in the ECC

“A woman needs to form 6 relationships in 6 months for her to connect to a church” -Rev Ruth Hill, Exec Minister of Women Ministries #COVMW

Some thoughts:

Three things women want:

  1. Someone to care
  2. A place to belong
  3. Significance

The Four Gifts women bring to the church:

  1. MAGNET: Entry points into the life of the church
  2. GLUE: Holding the social fabric of the community together
  3. FEMALE VITAMINS: Nurturing relationships within the church
  4. KLEENEX: Empathy(izing ability)

The Dep’t of Women Ministries in the ECC provide the following:

  1. Retreats
  2. Ministry coaching
  3. Advocacy for Victims of Abuse
