Building an Effective Women's Ministry *Develop a Plan *Gather a Team * Watch God Work by Sharon Jaynes

Building an Effective Women's Ministry is a one-of-a-kind how-to manual that offers a wide-range of help to women, from those just starting out to those who have a thriving ministry but could use a fresh idea or two. Sharon Jaynes, vice president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, honestly addresses some of the questions women encounter as they put their dreams in action, and she offers clear direction for concerns that include I want to start a women's ministry, but I don't know where to begin. My women's ministry is stale and needs new life. I've been asked to lead a women's ministry, and I'm scared to death. God has wonderful things in store for those who will build a ministry with Him.


Although Building and Effective Women's Ministry is 363 pages long, I devoured it, cover-to-cover, in one sitting. The writing style was as comfortable as the content was practical. As I read, my highlighter pen flew along, tracing the many `a-ha
moments inspired along the way. The acronyms, ministry models, suggested timelines and sections on ministry personalities were especially insightful. The quotes, stories and analogies made this weighty subject both intriguing and fun. A terrific resource


-Marnie Swedberg, Author, Speaker, & Webhostess A well-orchestrated women's ministry is like a beautiful dance, bringing grace and creativity to the Body of Christ. In Building An Effective Women's Ministry, gifted author Sharon Jaynes not only teaches the basic dance steps, but all the intricate footwork that prepares women to have Scripturally `beautiful feet
in order to share Christ
