“It is imperative for the health of the church that the call to men to rise up does not inadvertently ask women to shrink back” ~Brad House
The statement above is a reflection of the desire of our Women’s Ministry at Missio Dei Church. Women are vital to a healthy church. We need women to serve and bless Jesus and His church and without the gifted work of the women in the church, we’re deprived of the blessing that these women only can bring to the community. We need gospel-centered women who love God with their heart, mind, soul, and strength, and because of Jesus seek to love others as he has loved them. We need the women in community to be confident in their identity as daughters of God and exercise their gifts within the body for the fame of Jesus. They are essential to our communities and without them the whole body suffers. We love the women Jesus has brought into the life of His church and they are vital to the health and life of the church.
We encourage women to love and follow Jesus in everyday life, love their families, learn gospel-centered theology that is applied to all of life, serve and help build the church with their gifts, walk in the Spirit, live life through community as equal image bearers of God, with distinct roles with the ultimate mission of creating disciples of Jesus who make other disciples for the glory of God.
Our prayer for women is that they would find their identity in Christ alone as an equal image bearer of their God and King, love their families, walk together with other women in community, & make the reality of His Kingdom visible by declaring the good news and displaying its effects together in everyday life.
Today, many women do not function through the biblical framework of the gospel in all areas of their life. Basic functions are lacking in many women who grew up not being trained to live life effectively as a person and especially not as a gospel-centered disciple who follow Jesus in everyday life. Women have to be retrained on how to live life through the lens of following Jesus and His gospel everyday. Working hard, growing in grace, loving a husband, raising a family, serving their homes, being a friend, being faithful to your church community, and living life does not have to be meaningless, joyless, unrewarding, and vain. Only through gospel-centered community can you see the value and worth of serving Jesus in your everyday life. Community solves this problem and allows us to minister to one another by sharing life’s triumphs and trials as we grow in a deeper love for Jesus and one another as the gospel shapes every area of how we live.
The best way to get plugged into the life of Missio Dei Memphis Women is to get involved in Women’s Bible Study on Sunday morning where you will know and be known by women who will love, encourage, challenge you, and point you to Jesus who can alone complete you.
Once a month we have the Poiema Gathering which strategically teaches women to make disciples. It happens every first Tuesday of every month.
Missio Dei Memphis Women’s Ministries are open to all women of any age and stage of life. To learn more about Women’s Ministries available to you, or if you have questions, contact the church office.
Women's Bible Study | 9:15am
Come join other ladies every Sunday morning at 9:15am as we walk through the scriptures and see how to apply the good news into our everyday life. Women were created purposefully by God to live passionately for the glory of Jesus by the power of His Spirit and through the gospel. This is an amazing time to learn, laugh, cry, and pray in community for the purpose of mission. During this time we study the scriptures to know who God is, what He does, and how it practically effects our lives. How important it is then to study His Word with other women living life together through the gift of community! Come find out and don’t miss this incredible time!
