The Department of Women’s Ministries exists to uphold, encourage, and challenge Adventist women in their pilgrimage as disciples of Jesus Christ and members of His world church.
Women empowered and nurtured to fulfill their God-given potential.
Our mission is in the larger sense common to all Christians – That of uplifting Christ in the church and in the world. But more specifically, we are called to:
- elevate women as persons of inestimable worth because they have been created and redeemed
- enable women to deepen their faith and experience spiritual growth and renewal
- build networks among women in the world church to encourage bonds of friendship and mutual support and the creative exchange of ideas and information
- mentor young Adventist women, encouraging their involvement, and creating paths for them as they reach for their potential in Christ
- challenge each Adventist woman with her potential to complement the gifts given to other women and men as they work side by side to further the global mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church
- bring women’s unique perspectives to the issues facing the world church
- seek expanding avenues of dynamic Christian service for women, that out of the fullness we as women have personally found in Jesus Christ, we may be empowered to share the good news within our families, among our fellow believers, and in ever expanding circles in the unsaved world
The GraceLink Bible Study Guides are an important resource in one of our most urgent and vital tasks: leading our children to Christ. The Gracelink curriculum offers our children a balanced emphasis, featuring Grace (Jesus loves me), Community (We love each other), Worship (I love Jesus), and Service (We love you, too).
Developed by the General Conference, GraceLink is a biblically based 12 year curriculum comprising of 624 lessons. Most lessons are story-based, some on scriptural references that teach a specific doctrine. Each story has been selected to develop one of the four dynamics of the GraceLink series: grace, worship, community, and service.
Feel free to download any of the resources that have been developed by the General Conference.
