NETWORKING FORUM IN DENVER MARCH 2014:
This forum is NOT just for those involved in Women In Ministry as pastors or directors, this is truly for those women in professional and academic ministry. We want to meet for connection, enrichment and being sharpened by wrestling with what ministry looks like for the future as the denomination grows and as culture shifts the ground under us. Generational expectations, constantly changing technology, a global society, and a shifting American culture have caused us to look at transitions we must make while holding forth the hope of the eternal gospel. Come and be a part of this interactive time contributing your thoughts and active listening. Stated Clerk Jeff Jeremiah will be joining us for part of the time for interaction.
- DATES: March 27-29, 2014
- PLACE: Denver, CO
- COST: TBA, but we are making this affordable! We need your input.
YEAR-END GIFT OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMEN IN MINISTRY:
SET FREE PROJECT 2013: We have loved the opportunity of partnering with two agencies involved in the restoration of survivors of sexual trafficking: Hope House near Asheville NC and The Dream House/Shine Career School in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. They continue to provide a doorway to freedom to teenagers trapped by this evil which affects us globally. December 31 marks the last day for contributions to be given to these two ministries helping young women trapped in slavery to be restored to a fulfilling life. We want to thank the many who have given to make a difference for these girls and offer the opportunity one more time. WIM Set Free Project 2014 will focus on our missionaries who are often in cultures oppressive to women. See our website for more details at http://www.epcwomeninministry.org/. If you wish to make a year-end gift, please designate SET FREE PROJECT 2013 and send to Women In Ministry, EPC, 17197 N. Laurel Park Drive, Suite 567, Livonia MI 48152.
WOMEN IN MINISTRY FUNDING: For many years, our churches have been faithful in supporting us as we seek to encourage and equip women in our churches and presbyteries. The Women In Ministry budget is made possible through churches/women’s groups/individuals giving to Per Woman Asking. The asking for the churches are $1 per woman which funds the training, resources and events that are sponsored. Thank you for your support. We invite you to continue to give enabling us to offer leadership development.
