Discipleship opportunities for women

by Sue Hodnett

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI – One step at a time. We all have a next step to take, whether it’s your first step or one of many in a long journey with God. Leading and serving is about more than liking Jesus or knowing about Him. It's about becoming like Him.

“Rather than view women as risks, liabilities, or burdens, Jesus invited them to draw near.”

~ Jen Wilkin.

How as women do we view Jesus?

“We see Him as the one who welcomes women and defends their right to learn from Him.”

~ Rebecca McLaughlin.

Bible studies, small groups, leadership training and trustworthy courses to assist women into God’s Word are not only vital but biblical.

Our desire is to assist you in developing the leadership skills needed to make disciples of Jesus who live on mission. Sharing knowledge and tools needed to start a new ministry or take the next step in your current ministry.
