Ministry Focus

Women’s Ministry celebrates the fullness of life that comes from a meaningful relationship with Christ and a thriving community with other women.

Our mission is to:

  • Encourage women to know and follow Jesus Christ.
  • Engage women to grow in relationship with Christ through discipleship and community.
  • Empower women to go and live out their purpose as they serve and reach others for Christ locally and globally.

Our prayer is that you find a place where you can know, grow and go because of Jesus!
