The mission of Women Ministries of the Covenant is to advance God’s kingdom through women. The good work carries on, right into 2013 as we continue to advance God’s work through AVA (Advocacy for Victims of Abuse), MTS (Mending the Soul), Break the Chains (PROTECT), Global Goods for Congo (including Rip n’ Roll) and Triennial scholarships. Local women ministries groups have lovingly supported these efforts and we are grateful for the healing and help that has taken place as a result. We want to continue those good works through our 2013 project.

In 2013, you can partner with Women Ministries in a powerful way – because you have the power! You have the power to impact women—at home or around the world; in areas of advocacy or leadership training; with hands-on and fundraising efforts. You are empowered to choose the initiative that means most to you in your unique setting. We encourage you to support the effort of your choice, prayerfully, financially, and by raising awareness and taking action.

global goods for Congo (GG4C) the newly expanded effort to roll bandages, make baby goods, assemble midwife kits and ship them to Congo. Through GG4C Women Ministries provides much-needed supplies for hospitals and clinics in Congo and incentivizes Congolese women to receive pre-natal care and to deliver their babies in a setting with medical care.
