Thank you for your interest in women's ministry!
The women's ministry at OVBC is here to assist the church in its God-given mission to spread the good news of Jesus Christ and to develop women as authentic, passionate, Christ-followers. Our goals are centered around the following:
We are here to help you as you grow to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ, to help you draw near to and develop a strong relationship with God through prayer and study of the Word of God.
Our desire is assist you as become honest, real and passionate in your relationship with Christ. We are here to assist you as you learned to follow him, as you grow and mature spiritually, and as you learn to engage in and win difficult battles in your life.
We are here to spread the good news about Jesus Christ to people everywhere. Our goal is to help you impact others with the good news and to reach people everywhere. Our goal is that every woman we come into contact with will hear the gospel, be loved, cared for, and nurtured according to Christ's example regardless of age, socioeconomic or marital status, culture, past life, etc.
We are women who have come to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ, and therefore, are committed to loving God and loving others! Our ministry is based on the Biblical principle of serving from the overflow.(Romans 15:13).
We believe women's ministry is important....
.....because the bonds and friendships between women are useful tools in the hand of God.
.....because women have unique needs, that other women can meet.
.....because women are given unique gifts and abilities by God that other women can benefit from.
.....because women are able to love on one another in ways that women understand.
.....because women are natural caregivers and are able to disciple, mentor, and care for one another in ways that are unique to women.
Join us as we grow to know and love Jesus and one another!
