Women In Ministry
Women in Ministry, Fayetteville Chapter known as "WIM", is a non-profit organization which caters to the encouragement of all women. WIM develops women so that they can go forth and impact their homes, communities and work places in a positive way. WIM now offers many resources to empower women to be successful in life, family, and work.
The five-fold purpose of Women In Ministry is to:
• Provide a time of fellowship
• Encourage, edify and strengthen sisters
• Promote consistency in the lifestyles of women according to God's word
• Train and equip women in ministry to go forth
• Train women to return to their local churches imparting truth and knowledge to others
"What we get, we give; what we learn, we teach"
