As we celebrate twenty-five years of Women’s Ministries, there are a few words that come to mind: endurance, commitment, perseverance, creativity, and connection among others.

Interestingly enough, it also brings to mind a visual comparison coming from a story in the Bible.

Judges 4:8—Then Barak said to her, “If you will go with me, then I will go; but if you will not go with me, I will not go.”

For me this is as plain as it can be to help us understand that God's intention has always been the inclusion of both strengths of His creation (of man and woman made “in His image”). This is our mandate because it takes both genders to reflect Jesus completely and perfectly.

Women's Ministries is the force that not only equips, nurtures, and strengthens women, but the entire church.

Women in the Inter-American Division territory are working hard for the Lord, convinced that it is our mission, our highest honor, our purpose.
