About this Event
On Saturday, April 18th, NEU Church Planting is hosting Teaching What Is Good: A Mini-Conference on Ministries for Women in the Local Church. Local churches need to be places where women ministered to and also equipped to minister to others. Sharon Dickens and Natasha Davidson, both from 20schemes, bring experience from leading women’s ministries in Scotland’s urban poor neighborhoods.
Here in New England urban neighborhoods, the same need exists. Come to catch their vision for how to serve the women in your local church.
- Saturday, April 18th, 10am – 12pm
- Limited to 25 participants
- Hosted online on Zoom
- $5 to attend
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.
