VIsion

Woman to woman. Older to younger. Day to day. Life to life. This is God’s beautiful plan.

The Titus 2 model of older woman living out the gospel alongside younger women is vital for us all to thrive. It is mutually strengthening, glorifies God, and makes His truth believable to our world.  

Imagine older women investing themselves in the lives of younger women, blessing whole families and churches. Imagine young wives, moms, and singles gaining wisdom and encouragement from women who’ve been there and have found God’s ways to be true and good. Imagine all women–from older to young girls–living out His transforming gospel together, growing the entire body of Christ to be more beautiful.  

This is Christian community as God designed it. This is the Vision for Trinity Women’s Ministry.

Mission and Goal Objectives

Our mission is for women to grow and encourage one another, in intentional intergenerational discipling relationships, for advancing the Kingdom.

Teach

Teach women that disciplining (woman to woman) is a mandatory command in scripture for Christian women. Discipling, going and bearing fruit, is our God-given mission. It’s not a program, it is how we do life.

Celebrate

Celebrate lives that are being changed through disciplining mentoring. Share stories of how God has used and is using intergenerational relationships to grow mature Christians in Christ. Celebrate what God is doing through these intentional relationships.

Identify

Identify women who have grasped the vision and accepted the mission as their own. Pray for, equip and support them with resources.


Promote

Promote intergenerational interaction through Bible studies and event gatherings.


Remain

Remain missional minded by seeking to include the unchurched and women from other denominations in our community.


Core Values

UNDER THE WORD, HEAD & HEART:
We value the study of the Bible in a multi-generational, transformational discipleship framework (Matthew 28:18-20).
  • We will aim to be women of the Word growing in sound doctrine and applying it to our daily lives (Matthew 4:4, 28:18-20; 2 Timothy 3:14-17).
  • We will aim to help each woman embrace God’s beautiful design for womanhood through Titus 2 mentoring, teaching, and equipping the next generation to glorify God (Titus 2:3-5, 11-16; Genesis 2:18; Genesis 1:26-27; Proverbs 14:1; Ephesians 5:22-23; 1 Peter 3:1-6).
  • We will seek rich, fragrant fellowship and friendship around the study of God’s Word that encourages and strengths each woman in the bond of sisterhood growing in meaningful relationships with God and one another. (John 15:12; Acts 2:42-47; Deuteronomy 6:4-12; Mark 12:29-30; Ephesians 6:10-18; Titus 2:3-5).
  • We will aim to make fully devoted disciples who multiply and make disciples thereby fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
FROM THE CHURCH OUT, GROWING HEALTHY TOGETHER:
We will pursue reaching multi-generations and will be increasingly outreach oriented by being invitational, relational, event-driven, missional.
  • To equip women to grow in Christ, recognize and develop their gifts, and edify Christ’s church and the work of His Kingdom (Ephesians 4:12-16; 2 Timothy 1:5; Psalm 78:4-7, 1 Corinthians 10:31-33).
  • Seek opportunities to share the gospel of Christ with unbelievers (Matt. 28:19-20; Col. 4:3-6).
  • Pray for a movement of revival and reformation among God’s people that will result in the advancement of the Kingdom and gospel of Christ among all nations (2 Chronicles 7:14; Psalm 51:1-10; Psalm 85:6; 2 Pet. 3:9).
  • Equip and encourage spiritually mature women to come alongside younger women in order to equip and encourage the next generation to live for God’s glory. To live out the mandate of Titus 2 as older women, modeling godliness and training younger women to be pleasing to God in every respect. As younger women receiving instruction with meekness and humility and aspiring to become mature women of God who in turn will train the next generation (Titus 2:3-5).
