Church of God Women (Past, Present & Future)

Women have been a vital part of the ongoing ministry of the Church of God since its humble beginnings in the rugged Unicoi Mountains. Their ministries now reach around the world with a multiplicity of emphases and focuses…including prayer, Bible study, local and world missions, covenant team ministry (providing assistance to mission states and regions), benevolence, prison outreach, ministry to both young girls and senior adults, fund-raising, printed resource materials, and social issues that affect women.

One of the ways the Church of God celebrates and honors women's contributions to the ministry is by annually celebrating International Women’s DISCIPLESHIP Heritage Day October 6. However, it may be celebrated at any convenient time.

The anniversary of Women’s Discipleship provides an excellent opportunity to honor the dedicated, courageous women who pioneered many wonderful ministries. It is a time to reflect upon what God has done and how He continues to use women in the expansion of the Kingdom.

Typically, with the approval of the pastor, programs, banquets, etc., are planned that recognize the ministry of outstanding women in the congregation.
