When a woman walks into a church, she is looking for someone to care, encourage, and listen to her—she needs the Body of Christ. She wants to know that she is not alone, and she needs the hope that a personal relationship with Jesus can provide.
We can discover what best ministers to a woman when we understand her design. Genesis 2:18-24 reveals that God created the first woman, Eve, with distinct differences from her counterpart, Adam. "Adam was created from the ground and was assigned tasks. [But] Eve was created from Adam's side. She was designed specifically for relationship—created to meet Adam's relational need and equipped to bear and nurture children."
While sermons can challenge and inspire a woman, genuine life-change happens when someone enters her emotional world, connects with her, and encourages her on a personal level. She experiences the most growth within relationships that provide empathy, presence, conversation, and emotional connection.
The Bible tells us that women are the best models of godly behavior for other women (Titus 2). Women understand women. This is why ministry to women, by women, is a vital part of a healthy congregation.
Sisterkeepers is designed to empower women to become fully equipped to operate in the gifts & talents that the Lord has placed within each of their lives as they build meaningful relationships with other women in the church & with the body of Christ at large.
