We are called to go and make disciples (Matt 28:19).
That means connecting and growing with women of all ages, life experiences, and spiritual maturity. It means having a discipleship resource that can meet you right where you are can be life-changing.
We live in a society where we were taught that the pastors and elders of the church do all the ministry instead of equipping the saints for the work of ministry. Looking at Jesus as our example, we don’t see Him constantly inviting everyone to the synagogues to hear the Rabbi preach or teach that weekend; we see Him being the guide to a group of disciples on a daily basis and living life with them. He was teaching the disciples to follow after Him as He followed after God. That is discipleship.
Paul tells Titus:
“Older women…are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled” (Titus 2:3-5).
Women’s discipleship at Mint Hill Baptist Church entails a variety of topics that arise from God’s Word. We use fellowship coupled with God’s Word to guide us to raise up godly women who are gifted to teach other women. We look to the women who are in a season of life where they can disciple while remaining faithful to their God-given responsibilities.
