5 Ways Your Women’s Ministry Can Help

  • Steer women toward Bible-centered materials written by women, such as studies by Beth Moore, Jen Wilkin, Kelly Minter, or She Reads Truth.
  • Train small-group leaders to study Scripture inductively (Jen Wilkin’s book Women of the Word is a great resource.)
  • Invite women with theological training to come and teach to your ministry.
  • Invite women in your ministry to speak on specific passages of Scripture.
  • Encourage women to consider seminary, and, if possible, help support them financially.
