Discipleship Focused Women’s Ministry

Our greatest desire is for women to grow in their relationship with Jesus.  Confident that God uses His Word to mature us, we long to direct women to places they can actively study Scripture alongside others who will teach and encourage them.

We believe that all Women’s Ministry events, whether one-time gatherings or ongoing programs, need to serve as avenues for connection to small group Bible Studies where authentic discipleship can happen. Experiencing Growth offers a strategic plan and practical resources for nurturing and equipping women to know and follow Christ!


Training for Your Women’s Ministry Teams

If you are interested in a discipleship focused women’s ministry or in how to use Experiencing Growth Bible Studies with women, we would love to be a resource for you and provide training for your team.


Womens Ministry TeamExperiencing Growth: Team Approach

This is our Women’s Ministry Team at Salem Heights Church in Salem, Oregon. We love the team approach to ministry. Bringing individual strengths, abilities and passions together, untied around one purpose strengthens the ministry and multiplies the impact. We are “better together”! We would love to talk to you more about how to use your team to better strengthen the ministry in your church.



Even though I have participated in Bible studies for more than 20 years, I never felt like I had a firm foundation in the basics of God’s Word.This curriculum teaches who Jesus is and builds on the freedom we have in our faith and how to live the Christian life while growing closer to God. I certainly never felt qualified to lead a small group of ladies in a Bible study and the Experiencing Growth Bible study curriculum has helped me learn to love “digging a little deeper” into the Word of God as I lead women in discussions of weekly lessons.I have a new appreciation of the Bible as a living book that teaches and encourages me in my Christian walk.
