Session 1: Why Women's Ministry Is Important In The Local Church

Too often churches fall into the “buy one, get one free” plan of women’s ministry. Hire a pastor and you get his wife for free—as a counselor and women’s ministry leader. This strategy needs to be re-thought. Session 1 challenges you to think through why women's ministry is needed.

Session 2: Titus 2 Discipleship

What does that really look like? In Titus 2:3-5, you can see two things. First, how godly, mature women are called to behave and live. Second, Titus clearly states that you are to teach younger women to be godly women. Session 2 looks at what this means.
