Women’s Ministry Course – Good Book Co

All women have a role to play in inspiring and encouraging other women in the local church and reaching out to their female friends. This short course helps equip women to encourage each other and how to make the most of every opportunity to point others to Christ.

There are 10 modules, covering topics such as teaching the Bible, one to ones, pastoral care, supporting single/married friends etc.  The content is available from the Good Book Company as an e-book.  Those interested in joining this course will individually work through a chapter a week, then meet online to discuss the key ideas and exercises.

We’d love to hear what you are finding helpful so that we can add them here
