Who We Are
NC District Women’s Ministries exists to serve Assemblies of God churches, pastors, and women ministering across North Carolina.
NC District Women’s Ministries exists to serve Assemblies of God churches, pastors, and women ministering across North Carolina. In our state, we enjoy a vast variety of geography and landscapes. Within our borders, we have the diverse and distinct beauty of high mountains, the rolling hills of the Piedmont, the tall pines of our sandhills, the farmland of the coastal plain, and miles of coastline and beaches.
Much like the diversity of our geography, our Assembly of God churches are varied and unique. Within each assembly, one will find a distinct culture and flavor, and each of these unique churches has great value and potential to reach its community. Our department exists to equip churches and women to minister to women within their churches and greater community through their own unique culture. In her book, Shepherding a Woman’s Heart, author Bev White Hislop asserts, “the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs of women may be greater than at any previous time in the history of the United States.” We are more technologically connected and advanced, but many women are isolated, disconnected, and overwhelmed. Young girls and women are surrounded by the dominant message of our media that their value is most greatly measured by their outward appearance. It is imperative that our churches minister spiritual health to women within their walls, but also reach out to women in need of the love and mercy of our Savior in their communities.

How can NCWM's strengthen women's ministries in the local church?
The Three Dimensional Design
The Three-Dimensional Design will help you reach every woman through three crucial levels of interaction - Big Events, Small Groups, and One-on-One Connections. Whether your church is large or small, this model can be modified and implemented to meet the unique needs of the women you are called to lead.
Big EventsBig Events reach women in the entire church and surrounding community. Ideally, these gatherings would take place two to four times each year. Theme parties, meal events, retreats or conferences are examples of Big Events that can invite, include, and inform all women.
Small GroupsSmall Groups involve and instruct women, providing fellowship and mutual support for life's journey. Small Groups can be as diverse as the interests and needs of the women in your church. As relationships are strengthened over time, they will provide care, accountability, and encouragement that women need.
One-to-One ConnectionsOne-to-One Connections matter. While many churches offer Big Events and Small Groups, many fail to be intentional about creating opportunities for One-on-One Connections. Life-giving relationships are extremely important for the emotional and spiritual health of a woman. In addition, One-on-One Connections are highly adaptable - they can meet as determined by individuals, providing a flexible, yet effective way for women to invest in and inspire other women.
