“So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you’re already doing this; just keep on doing it.” 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11
We are very excited to unveil the theme of the women’s ministry in the Northeast Atlantic District called, Cultivate.
Cultivate means to prepare or develop, to care for something and to foster growth. We desire to come alongside each of you and cultivate all that God has for you (whether it be greater joy, peace, boundaries in ministry, uniqueness, friendships, etc.) and more than anything…we desire to see you flourish in your walk with God!
We will offer two tracks with this ministry. One will be called “Nourish” and it will be for our Senior Pastor’s wives and female Senior Pastors. In the Nourish track, we have appointed a woman’s representative from each of the District Area Hubs. These amazing ladies will assist us in developing a network of women who can cultivate encouragement and support to these Senior leaders.
The “Equip” track is open to every woman in our District. This track is all about cultivating leadership and providing you with the tools you need to become better leaders. These tools will not only give you personal insight, but will also equip you to teach others in your churches and various ministries. We will explain more about the Equip portion of Cultivate at a workshop that you won’t want to miss at our District Conference in October, which is open to all women.
Ladies – you are loved and valued beyond what you can imagine! We believe in you and we know the Lord does as well. Our prayer for you comes from 1 Thess. 5:11 –
“So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you’re already doing this; just keep on doing it.”
So ladies, whatever season of life you’re in – whether you are a mom to little children, single, divorced, widowed or married with grown children and grandchildren – we are here to support you, strengthen you, and Cultivate God’s very best into your life!
Serving alongside of you –
Lisa, Cheri, and Susan
