I WILL GO REACH MY WORLD—STRATEGIC PLAN
Women's Ministries division leaders are committed to leading the women in their territories to the plan, "I Will Go."
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 Plan: I Will Go Reach My World
A call to the women of the Seventh-day Adventist Church by Heather-Dawn Small, worldwide director of Women's Ministries
I Will Go is a rallying call to every member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church to be part of Total Member Involvement. It is a call to mobilize our resources efficiently and productively, to be flexible, and to answer God's call to put aside our own plans and move in whatever direction He calls us to go.
Women's Ministries embraces the Seventh-day Adventist Church's 2020-2025 world theme—I Will Go. We have added to it three words, "Reach My World," and it becomes I Will Go Reach My World.
Reaching your world is to touch the heart and lives of someone in your center of influence, whether it be your own family, friends, neighborhood, or workplace.
Reaching your world is to show and tell the world the good news of the Savior.
Our Women's Ministries mission statement emphasizes that we are called to NURTURE our sisters, to EMPOWER them for service, and then to focus all that we have learned on OUTREACH to others.
I Will Go points to the importance of
- NURTURING women in the church and new believers so we can grow in the power of the Holy Spirit.
- EMPOWERING our sisters through training so we are equipped to help those in need.
- REACHING OUT to tell and show the love God has for all people wherever they are with no distinction for race, culture, language, or gender.
We are each called, my sisters, first to accept the gift of salvation that God so freely has offered us, then to live each day allowing the love of Christ to flow through us, and finally to reach out and touch and make a difference in our world with that love.
I will go reach my world. What about you?
If we unite in purpose and reach our individual worlds, we will together reach the whole world.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"—Isaiah 6:8, NIV
