Connecting women to key doctrine and Women’s Ministry topics.  Use this video for your own personal encouragement or share them with your Women’s Ministry to invite women to connect in conversation around these truths.  Here are some questions to get you started as well as some resources to dig deeper on this topic.

Questions to connect around:

  1. What are several tangible ways that you are seeking to bring the hope of the gospel to your own heart as a women’s ministry leader?
  2. Can you relate to the image of having a “gospel sieve” for a heart? Describe a time in your life where you were left “leaky” when recently deposited truths of the gospel dribbled out.
  3. If you were to build your own “personal arsenal of truth” what would be included? Remember it is to be a personal collection of truth and beauty in the from or objects, phrases, music, scripture or really anything that will remind yourself of the truth of the gospel.
  4. Reflect over this last year in your women’s ministry as to evidences of growth in the gospel both individually and corporately.
