The purpose of Titus 2 discipleship is for spiritually mature women to share the gospel and their lives (2 Thess. 2:7-8) with younger women in order to encourage and equip them to glorify God as they learn to think biblically and live covenantally through an understanding of biblical principles of womanhood. It trains women to know their creation design (helper) and redemptive calling (life-giver) and to be transformed by God’s grace from life-takers to life-givers. This purpose is realized as women:
-Learn to think biblically about all of life, including sexuality
-Seek to bring their lives under the authority of God’s Word
-Apply biblical principles to relationships and circumstances
-Establish covenant relationships with other women
-Become equipped to spiritually mother other women and girls
-Cultivate a life-giving culture in the church where women share the gospel and their lives with one another

Our Ministry Team was launched for the purpose of teaching and equipping women to serve in the church. Once a month we gather to discuss different aspects of leadership and ministry in the church and pray.
In between meetings, we read books that will enhance our understanding of what women’s ministry, based on Word and Prayer, should look like. This year we have read Praying Together by Megan Hill, Closer Than A Sister by Christina Fox. At our April meeting, we discussed the recent Women of Purpose conference, Compassionate Community, with Susan Hunt. Each woman on the ministry team has a group of women that she prays for specifically.
