Nurture, Empower, and Outreach

“A Ministry for Every Woman: Touch a Heart, Tell the World” is a program developed by General Conference Women’s Ministries to advance the work of sharing the gospel using the methods that Christ used.

Giving focus to our work of equipping, training, and inspiring women to serve, this program provides guidelines, ideas, and resources for each of these three areas of ministry:

  1. NURTURE: Reach Up to God—To help women in their devotional time and personal growth, enabling them to be nurturers in the church and community.
  2. EMPOWER: Reach In with God—To equip women for their activities and projects for the church and community.
  3. OUTREACH: Reach Out with God—To help women use small group fellowship and evangelism to reach others in their community.

The Call

"We greatly need consecrated women who, as messengers of mercy, shall visit the mothers and the children in their homes, and help them in the everyday household duties, if need be, before beginning to talk to them regarding the truth for this time. You will find that by this method you will have souls as the result of your ministry."—Ellen G. White, Review and Herald, July 12, 1906.

The Action

"Christ’s method ALONE will give true success in reaching people. The Savior mingled with [people] as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. THEN He bade them, ‘follow Me’." —Ellen G. White, Ministry of Healing, p. 143.
