A Ministry Workshop with The Gospel Coalition

Happened Friday–Saturday, April 13–14, 2018

About the event

Through regional “Word-Filled Women” training, The Gospel Coalition aims to encourage and support the growth of Word-based ministry among women in and through the local church, under the leadership of pastors and elders. This two-day regional workshop was for women currently engaged or interested in Word-filled ministry–that is, ministry grounded in the Scriptures, growing in the context of God’s people, and aiming for the glory of Christ.

We celebrate the many various paths of ministry among women, from teaching to mentoring to mercy ministry to working with children, and on and on. The workshop was for women walking along one of these paths of ministry, paid or unpaid, who wanted to grow in studying, handling, and sharing God’s Word. TGC-sponsored teachers led sessions in: (1) a biblical approach to women’s ministry and discipleship; and (2) biblical exposition, focusing on one biblical book per workshop.
