Women’s Ministry Tip: How Small Women’s Ministry Teams Pull off Large Events

Just because you have broad shoulders it does not mean that you should try to carry it all.  This applies to life, burdens and responsibilities whether in the home, at work or in church.  There have been times in my role as Director of Women’s Ministry where I was doing it all.  Not because I am just that good or a “super” Christian even, but…

Women’s Ministry Wednesday – The Childcare Challenge

When it comes to offering childcare for your women’s events, the question becomes more about which events may qualify.  In my six years of leading women’s ministry in my medium-sized church, childcare was always a quandary.
