Welcome to the Ohio Women's Ministries Website
Something has started all over Ohio in the Wonderful Ohio Women- the W.O.W!!!
One of my favorite verses is Psalm 45:11, “The King is WILD about YOU!!!” It is my desire and prayer for all the Wonderful Ohio Women of the Ohio Women’s Ministry Network to KNOW that and LIVE it for God’s Glory! Because this is what we were created for, for the King, to bring God glory!!!
My passion for Ohio Women’s Ministry Network:
1. That all our ladies in our A/G churches are reached/contacted so that they have an opportunity to participate in all
2. To build and Develop women leaders to further God’s Kingdom so that:
We want to be reaching women at every level and facet of their lives: professional women who have careers while juggling home activities, moms at home with children, single moms struggling to make ends meet, older generations dealing with changes, single ladies working and seeking God’s direction and ministry women serving in our churches.
There are constant changes to our daily lives. But, THANK THE LORD, God is always current, so I know that we can be too as we stay in tune with Him!
It is my prayer that each of the Wonderful Ohio Women will discover the power, potential and purpose that God has for each of them to walk in DAILY and VICTORIOUSLY!!! It says in Lamentations 3:23 that His compassions are new every morning! So I know that I can daily EXPECT God to move and work in each of our lives as He pours out His new compassions daily!!!

Network Sponsored Events
TIME APART is held every year in the Spring ~ the Friday and Saturday following Mother’s Day. This two day event focuses on the programs of the Women’s Department as well as providing teaching, encouragement, creative ideas and dynamic speakers to challenge and inspire. Including a Leadership Pre-Conference on Friday that deals specifically with women leading women ~ God’s Way!!!
Dwelling Place convenes at the Heartland Conference and Retreat Center the first weekend in October. This gathering uses a fall retreat environment to encourage women through God-inspired worship, prayer and the Word.
R.E.N.E.W. is the W.O.W.!!! outreach for Pastor’s wives and credentialed women in ministry to be refreshed, rejuvenated and encouraged throughout the year by providing opportunities for the ladies during events that many already attend ~ including Minister’s Retreat and our Annual Network Conference. It is our desire to make more resources available, year round, such as having a “panel” of wise and proven ladies of all ages available to call. We want our W.O.W.!!! ladies know that they are not alone, that their experiences are real, and with God’s help, we are all going to make it!!!
