Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
— Proverbs 31:30, NIV
The Women’s Ministries department exists to encourage, equip, promote, and challenge Adventist women in their journeys as disciples of Jesus Christ and members of His Church, and to bring women’s unique perspectives to the issues facing the church.
As Jesus is modeled through meaningful relationships and effective ministry, it is our desire that every Adventist woman comes to know Jesus more and more as her Savior and personal Friend.
Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.
— Psalm 34:3, NIV
Women from across Iowa and Missouri come together each fall for a weekend of encouragement, support, friendship, spiritual refreshment and growth.
