    EP 57: Women's Ministry Trends and Predictions for 2023

    EP 57: Women's Ministry Trends and Predictions for 2023

    As we’ve finally emerged from the covid years, I’m seeing and sensing some shifts in women’s ministry.
    Today I’m sharing 8 Women’s Ministry Trends and Predictions for 2023, including mentoring and discipleship, teams, and a focus on the Word. 
    I pray they’ll be a confirmation if they are things your team is already doing and encouragement if they are things you’ve been thinking of doing. And maybe some things I share will provide the nudge your team needs to make some changes…

    Quote: Leaders are waking up to the impact of social media on the theological beliefs of their women. Women are spending more time learning from Christian leaders on social media than in their local church.

    (REPLAY) EP 21: The Power of Personal Testimonies at Women's Ministry Events and Meetings

    (REPLAY) EP 21: The Power of Personal Testimonies at Women's Ministry Events and Meetings

    Please note: This episode is a replay of EP 21. I'm taking a break for the holidays. When I return in January, we'll be discussing technology and social media for ministry.

    Today, we will be talking about the differences between devotionals and testimonies, why we should share our personal testimonies, and how to share them.

    Many leaders use the words devotional and testimony interchangeably, but I think there's a distinct difference. Take a listen to find out why!

    I also share the three things every testimony should include.

    Quote: Our story can be a tool to providing comfort for those that God has placed in our path.

    Highlighted verse: 1 Peter 3:15 "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have."

    EP 56: Women's Ministry Reflections and Resolutions for the New Year

    EP 56: Women's Ministry Reflections and Resolutions for the New Year

    The end of the year lends itself to taking time to reflect on the successes, challenges, and disappointments of the last ministry year.

    It benefits the entire team when we celebrate our successes and make note of areas of improvement.

    Listen to this episode for tips and ideas on how to lead your team through the process of ministry reflection and resolution.

    Don't miss the three suggested reflection questions!

    Quote: Just as my blueberry bushes require pruning each winter to bear more fruit, so do our ministries. We must be willing to reflect on the past and make resolutions for the future if our ministry is going to continue to grow and bear fruit.
