It's More Than A Label, It's A Lifestyle

Many women today don't have the time or the interest in spending time at "just another meeting." We must reach out to women at the point of their needs. Women's Ministries can do this by offering various Ministry Groups. Living like Jesus and ministering to the needs of others should be a way of life for every Christian. People want to see that the Christ-controlled life makes a difference and gives meaning to their existence. Ministry to women and women ministering should be the lifestyle of Women's Ministries in every church.
Women have special gifts from God, one or more talents that He has blessed them with. WINGS Ministries helps women find their gifts, and then matches them to needs in the churches or communities, and empowers them to serve others with their talents.
It's more than service, it's servanthood.
Too many Christians today believe that service means "serve me." However, true servanthood is motivated by a loving concern for others. No greater example of this servanthood exists than in the life of Jesus Christ. Women can find many channels of opportunity to practice servanthood.
A variety of Ministry Groups can help teach biblical principles of leadership and practical tools for reaching and ministering to the women of this unique generation and diverse culture.

It's more than a project, it's a purpose.
Our purpose is to fulfill God's purpose. Paul wrote to the Galatians, "Through love serve one another." Every born-again woman should have at least one ministry where she is involved in serving others. Through Women's Ministries many opportunities exist where every woman can be motivated to find her place of service. If you are not involved, ask God where He would have you begin.
