A Time to Serve

The 2013–2015 AB Women's Ministries Theme, "A Time to Serve", will help women understand how we have been uniquely shaped by God for the ministry to which we've been called, and sent out to the world.

Theme Scripture

"to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ."
Ephesians 4:12–13 NRSV

2014 Mission Study Theme

Nearly two-thirds of those women are mothers. One report shows that nearly 150,000 minor children have mothers who are incarcerated. Other studies show that most of these children will continue the path of being involved in the criminal justice system themselves. (read more)
