The National Women’s Ministries Department (formerly named
Women’s Missionary Council) was established at the 1951 General Council meeting
in Atlanta, Georgia.
Since then, Assemblies of God women have continued to prove
themselves generous by their giving to a multitude of projects. They give
locally; they give to district projects, and show their love by giving to
national projects as well.
Women are also true to one of the original goals for
establishing the national department—giving to missions! District women’s
directors help coordinate giving to missionary household budgets, caring for
the needs of their missionaries while away and when they return home. And,
women from many districts and churches travel overseas, or in U.S. Missions
works, to lend a hand with the multi-faceted projects missionaries need
assistance with in their country of service. Many orphanages, Bible schools,
churches, feeding programs, outreaches and education programs have been blessed
and encouraged by the help of women from our churches.
