Christian women have needs and interests as well as gifts and abilities. While they might experience those in different ways due to a variety of cultural circumstances, congregations can create opportunities for women to meet their needs and empower their abilities!
In this course, learners will build on the scriptural and theological study of the first two courses to explore six areas of practical interest for women’s ministries, with information and facilitation from women leaders in those areas. Topics will include domestic partner abuse, leadership skills, mentoring, vocation, etc. This course will end with a final overview to complete the Women’s Ministries certification.
All materials are included, so it will not be necessary to purchase any books for this course.
The instructor will offer a weekly Zoom meeting for discussion which will be recorded for those who cannot attend.
This course is eligible for 3.0 CEU.
