North Georgia Women's Ministries

Our mission is to empower women to realize their beauty, gifts, and self-worth through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and with other amazing women.

The North Georgia WM Department provides opportunities for women and young girls to grow in grace, develop their spiritual gifts, and reach their fullest potential of Christian service.

First and foremost, we encourage you to spend time everyday in Bible reading and in prayer. We may be busy working for the Lord, but nothing of eternal value is ever accomplished without a firm foundation of the Word of God and heartfelt prayer.

We design our events for the purpose of teaching Biblical principles that will help you to become a Godly woman. Women’s Ministries helps to spiritually equip women, which promotes a strong, stable home life and strengthens the local church.
