How to Start and Grow a myMISSION Group

Let’s face it. Young women are not lining up to join a missions group. Some may have never even been in a missions group or ever thought about actually joining together with other young women who share their missions passion.

My First Love

Although these things are definite parts of ministry, I’ve discovered a more important one-size-fits-all key to ministry: selflessness.

Feed Your Neighbors, Next Door and around the World

Global Hunger Relief

October 11 is Global Hunger Sunday. What has our group done to focus on the needs of the hungry?

Brokenness: The Seed of Compassion
