Women's Ministry


  • God has a specific purpose for each woman.
  • Our vision is that together, we will discover HIS will for our lives and become equipped to fulfill it.
  • Overseen by our Pastor’s wife, Gwen Darling, the women’s ministries are planned according to the population and needs of our congregation at any given time. In addition to participating in Seniors Ministries, Cleansing Stream, Healing Prayer and other ministries, these specific ministries are particular to women only.
