WM Evangelism Decision Card
The Vision for the Women’s Ministry department of the Greater New York conference is to develop a caring community of women to be devoted to Christ, through:
- Training our women to saturate every aspect of our lives in prayer.
- To equip our women with training so they will be actively involved in evangelism and outreach ministries with the goal of becoming “Disciples Making Disciples”.
- To foster a culture of unity and total involvement as we work for the Master.
- Christ-Centered Focus: spiritual encouragement, growth and daily bible study.
- Wide-spread Mission: meeting the needs of each other in all seasons of our lives, and of those in our community and whomever we come in contact.
- Health: incorporate the Health Message in all we do.
- Help women grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. • Help women get established in the Word.
- Help women learn to serve in love.
- Help women understand how to live out the gospel.
- Help women to develop and become mentors for the youth and young adults.
Women’s Ministries strives to facilitate transformative relationships with Jesus for every woman within the church community. Our purpose is to nurture, support, mentor, and encourage not only our fellow church members but also all individuals we encounter on a daily basis. In our pursuit of evangelistic ministry, it is essential that all our activities, including social events, incorporate a spiritual dimension, such as thoughtfully planned devotionals, to inspire women. As we strive to emulate Christ, our ultimate objective is to win souls for Jesus Christ. Guided by the words from Galatians 3:28, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus,” we are called to be dedicated “Women of Mission… We Will Go!”
1. Prayer line and quarterly women’s prayer sessions.
Recognizing that our efforts are futile without Christ at the center, we acknowledge our dependence on the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit, we receive wisdom, understanding, comfort, and protection from physical and spiritual dangers. We also depend on the Holy Spirit for interpretation, understanding of biblical truths and discernment in everyday affairs. To commence each week with an extra boost, we will continue our weekly women’s ministries prayer sessions. Additionally, we individuals, organize quarterly prayer sessions open to all interested providing an opportunity to express gratitude and share testimonies of God’s work in their lives.
These sessions serve as reminders of God’s past guidance and ongoing work through His Holy Spirit.
2. Bible studies.
Bible studies hold significant importance in our daily lives. Through the study of God’s Word, we not only equip others with knowledge but also strengthen our own faith and relationship with our Creator. The Word of God serves as a source of courage and strength, enabling us to face the challenges presented by the adversary. Over the past four years, we have been privileged to be vessels of the Lord’s work in sharing the good news of Jesus, our soon-coming Lord and King. This commitment remains unwavering.
We remain committed to equipping and empowering the women and young ladies of the Greater New York Conference. Our primary focus is their personal spiritual growth, while also equipping them with tools for serving the Lord within their homes, churches, and communities at large.
1. Outward in Commision Evangelism
Directed by the Lord, our core objective in every task we undertake is soul-winning. This encompasses various activities such as evangelistic series and collaborative efforts with other departments to reach individuals for Christ. We employ diverse methods including sidewalk evangelism, church-based evangelism, online evangelism through platforms like Zoom, mission trip evangelism, and evangelism through the health message. Our commitment is to integrate evangelism into every facet of our lives.
We actively engage in sharing the gospel, providing food to the hungry, and distributing clothing to those in need. We incorporate the health message and natural remedies as tools for witnessing and healing the sick. As part of our strategic plan, we aim to work closely with shelters, specifically women and teen mom shelters, establishing meaningful partnerships to assist in their needs. We are actively collaborating with organizations aiding immigrants seeking asylum in New York, addressing their material and spiritual needs. In addition to providing necessary items, we aim to evangelize by offering workshops and training in areas essential for daily living.
3. Young Adult Forum.
The transition from childhood to adulthood can be both daunting and exhilarating for young adults today, who face unique challenges unknown in previous generations. We aim to collaborate with other departments to create a safe environment that fosters self-expression, nurtures personal growth, and builds confidence. Through workshops addressing their specific challenges, we seek to support and guide them during this critical life phase.
Enditnow is a global initiative that is active in more than 200 countries and territories, advocating for the end of violence against men, women, and children worldwide. Our objective is to collaborate with sister conferences within the North American Division on a quarterly basis, delivering awareness, training, and resolution initiatives aimed at eradicating violence in all its forms.
1. Disabilities Ministries.
Numerous individuals silently endure the challenges of living with disabilities, often lacking support or awareness of available resources. We strive to make a positive difference by providing assistance and connecting them with professionals who can offer guidance and services to lighten their burdens. Specifically, we are dedicated to addressing the needs of the deaf community, recognizing the difficulties they face in communication and access. Our goal is to explore opportunities for assistance in these circumstances.
2. Women Helping Women Network.
The Women Helping Women Network serves as a database that brings together women from various professions and skill sets to facilitate the sharing of skills, talents, and professional expertise among women.
3. Safe Haven.
Domestic violence is a pervasive issue that affects women worldwide, regardless of their age, ethnicity, or socio-economic background. It refers to the physical, emotional, or psychological abuse inflicted upon women by their intimate partners or family members within the confines of their homes. It is a deeply troubling and distressing reality, often shrouded in secrecy and fear.
Safe Haven is a place of refuge for women who are fleeing domestic violence. This initiative began and was tirelessly worked on by my predecessors. By God’s grace, we desire to bring it to completion. In doing so, we wish to provide:
- Physical Safety.
- Emotional Support.
- Healing and Recovery.
- Community and Solidarity.
