I'm so glad you're here. I just love reading your posts and hearing your heart. Last week we had 114 posts linked up which is just so fun. It's such an honor to be using the online platform to make Jesus known with you great ladies!
So now on to our big announcement...
We are launching the Missional Women Discipleship Groups!
We get Facebook messages and emails from women all over the world who are wanting to grow more in their relationship with God and who are wanting to be more effective in making Him known. So we've been dreaming and praying about how to help fill this need and the Lord led us to start three groups each with the intention of meeting different women where they are at.
The Foundations Group lays the most essential groundwork. The material covered in this group is the most essential things someone needs to know and deeply understand in order to have a multiplying influence for the Lord. .
The Growth Group will focus on who God is and how that affects who we are and what we do. It's been said that the most important thing about you is what you believe about God. This group will take women in depth to knowing heart and character of God.
The Action Group is practical ministry training. During the session, you will learn how to do everything from sharing the story of how God changed our life in a useful, life-changing way, how to get into spiritual conversations, how to share your faith, how to disciple someone, how to use your gifts and strengths to make Jesus known and more.
Since this is brand new we are starting with the Foundations Group and will add a Growth Group the next session and the Action Group the next session.
I'm not sure which one appeals most to you but I would ask that you would help us form and establish these groups no matter where your at. If you're already at an Action Group level, we would love for you to start out with us from the beginning and give your input and perhaps think about leading a group in the future.
To learn more explore the Discipeship Groups Tab. You can read FAQ, How it Works, check out the Session Calendar, How to Be a Leader and so on.
Registration for the Missional Women Discipleship Groups open next Friday, January 24th. If you know someone who would be interested in this, please shoot them the url.
Here's the heart behind the Missional Women Discipleship Groups from a couple of the Missional Women Writers.
Faith Filled Friday Blog Link Up
We exist to glorify God, to display His heart and character. And I just love how we are all uniquely built to do that. So every Friday I want to give you, uniquely designed by God, an opportunity to link up your thoughts on God, art, baking, photography, parenting, marriage, homeschooling, writing or blogging and more if they tie into or display the the Lord somehow.
So go ahead and link up below by clicking the link below and following the prompts. Please just let your readers know by including a link at the bottom of your post (or somewhere on your side bar) or put my button code (found below and on the side bar) so they can find these other great people glorifying God and we can continue to grow as a community.Thanks!
And in effort to encourage others in their writing by faith, please take a minute to comment on another sweet ladies post.
