Women's Ministries is the department that ministers to the spiritual, emotional, physical and social needs of women. It encourages women to improve their potential and participation in the mission of the church. It provides a support system for hurting women, and a forum to help address topics and issues as they affect women in and out of the church. It promotes programs to mentor young women and encourages college young women academically through a scholarship program.
The Department of Women's Ministries exists to uphold, encourage, and challenge Adventist women in their pilgrimage as disciples of Jesus Christ and members of His world church.
Our mission is in the larger sense common to all Christians -- that of uplifting Christ in the church and in the world. But more specifically, we are called to:
Elevate women as persons of inestimable worth because they have been created and redeemed
Enable women to deepen their faith and experience spiritual growth and renewal
Build networks among women in the world church to encourage bonds of friendship and mutual support and the creative exchange of ideas and information
Mentor young Adventist women, encouraging their involvement, and creating paths for them as they reach for their potential in Christ
Address the concerns of women in a global context
Bring women's unique perspectives to the issues facing the world church
Seek expanding avenues of dynamic Christian service for women
Challenge each Adventist woman with her potential to complement the gifts given to other women and men as they work side by side to further the global mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church--that out of the fullness we as women have personally found in Jesus Christ, we may be empowered to share the good news within our families, among our fellow believers, and in ever expanding circles in the unsaved world.
