Women's Ministries Advisory Council

Find your area coordinator below.

WMAdvisory2

Women are actively seeking ways to better minister to one another in the pews of our churches, the communities where we live and around the world. Our goal is to encourage women of all ages to live to the fullest potential or "Masterpiece" that the Lord created and has planned for their life. Women’s Ministries provides a “safe” place for women to share with each other and to grow closer to Christ.

The Women's Ministries Department serves as a facilitator to nurture, empower and outreach with resources to help women tailor their ministries to the needs and interests of their own congregations and communities. Twelve dedicated ladies representing our area geographically and ethnically form the Women's Ministries Advisory Board. This group provides council and assists in dispersing our portion of the annual offering for Women's Ministries in support of events and projects that will be a special blessing to the women in the local churches as well as Young Women’s Ministries Advisory Board, Breast Cancer Awareness, Congo Widow's Mission Project and EnditNow (Abuse Prevention) Task Force.

About Our Department 

The NCC Women’s Ministries Department exists to uphold, encourage, and challenge Seventh-day Adventist women in their daily walk as disciples of Jesus Christ and as members of His world church. The mission of Women’s Ministries is, in the larger sense, common to all Christians — that of uplifting Christ in the church and in the world.

Focus
We want to reach 85% of women in the Northern California Conference by 2020.

Objectives — This ministry seeks to:

  1. Foster spiritual growth and renewal among women.
  2. Affirm that women are of inestimable worth by virtue of their creation and redemption, equip them for service in the church, and offer women’s perspectives on church issues.
  3. Minister to the broad spectrum of women’s needs across the life span, with due regard for multicultural and multiethnic perspectives. AUXILIARY ORGANIZATIONS OF THE CHURCH
  4. Cooperate with other specialized departments of the church to facilitate the ministry to women and of women.
  5. Build goodwill among women in the world church that encourages bonds of friendship, mutual support, and the creative exchange of ideas and information.
  6. Mentor and encourage Seventh-day Adventist women, creating paths for their involvement in the church as they reach for their potential in Christ.
  7. Find ways and means to challenge each Seventh-day Adventist woman to use her gifts to complement the talents of others as they work side by side to further the global mission of the church.

Women’s Ministries Leader — Each local church elects a Women's Ministries Leader to develop specific ministries to nurture women and equip them for service to God and to the church. She serves as chair of the Women’s Ministries Committee, and encourages ideas and plans which maximize women’s contributions to the mission of the church. As chair, she is responsible for putting together the agenda, moderating discussion, and developing group cohesion through personal sharing, prayer, and fellowship.

She also serves as a member of the church board, integrating activities and programs for women into the larger church program. It is her responsibility to keep the church informed of the contribution of Women’s Ministries to church life. The leader’s liaison for training and resource material is the local conference/mission/field Women’s Ministries director.

Qualifications of the Women’s Ministries Leader — The Women’s Ministries leader should be a woman with a sensitive, caring nature, a burden for women’s ministry and concerns, a balance in her perspectives so as to represent a broad spectrum of women, and an ability to encourage other women to cultivate their spiritual gifts. She should be able to work well with women in the church, the pastor, and the church board.

Women’s Ministries Committee — The Women’s Ministries leader works with the pastor and church board to establish a Women’s Ministries Committee to foster a ministry to women in the church. This committee should be composed of persons interested in the broad spectrum of women’s needs and services. To form a balanced team, the members should be persons with varied talents and experience.
