Setting Specif Goals for Women's Ministry

Setting Goals for Women's Ministry (for your group)

Julia Bettencourt

Posted November 2, 2006


Deciding upon some particular goals that you would like to see as a result of the women's ministry program in your local church can be a big help.  It will enable you in planning what type of programs, activities, themes, and bible study topics you will try to see implemented.

Thinking and deciding on these goals may also give you a boost of enthusiasm where working with your women's ministry program is concerned.

As a women's ministry leader, you know your ladies best and what type of things you’d like to accomplish for your particular church group.

Of course you may want all of the things mentioned on this list, but just choosing one or two to focus on for a year or even a shorter period of time is more practical.

Think about the areas that you feel are lacking in your particular group of ladies.  Don’t just think about those ladies that attend regular monthly ladies meetings, but try to gear your goals to encompass the whole of the women of your entire congregation.

These are just some examples, but you may want to come up with a couple of your own geared just for your group of ladies.  Some of these listed are more on the practical side and some are more spiritually oriented. 


  • I’d like our ladies to know each other by their first names.

  • I’d like our ladies to fellowship with each other outside of church functions.

  • I’d like our ladies to learn to express prayer requests to each other through the women's ministry and feel confident that those requests are being prayed for.

  • I’d like to see our attendance for ladies activities work up to an average of ______________(number) ladies.

  • I’d like to see our ladies offer to volunteer to women's ministry efforts without being asked.

  • I’d like to see our ladies study the Bible on their own and be women immersed in God's Word.

Women's Leader New Year TipWomen's leaders, if you are giving out planning calendars to your team members or pocket calendars to your ladies for January or February meetings, purchase some fun stickers and mark your meeting and event dates before you give them out.   I suggest small size stickers. 

Another option is to mark all the important dates with stirps of Washi Tape.
