At World Shine Ministries we follow the big vision of Reaching, Raising and Releasing women into their potential. The purpose of the Women’s Ministry is to help women fulfill their Biblical role by learning to love Jesus, making trust worthy friendships with each other, setting their priorities right and serving the Lord.
Our goals are;
-To share the gospel
-deepen the spiritual lives of each other
-make everyone belong and be a valued member
-provide ministry opportunities as we go out to minister.
Some of the ways to accomplish the above is continuing to create a strong core team that loves Jesus and has a heart for women’s ministry. Other activities which in which we are consistently involved are preaching the gospel, leading seminars for women and leadership trainings. It has been a blessing, coming alongside each other as we put ideas together, lead seminars, support and encourage one another in many parts of Uganda and beyond.
Arise and Shine
Our big vision of empowering women to reach their fullest potential led us to start the “Arise and Shine” project with the aim of not only helping women be self motivated and driven but also serve God with their gifts and talents. At the moment we have 25 sewing machines with 10 students who have graduated and given swine kits. We are yet to enroll another group of women for this training and release them to go and serve their families and communities with the skills they would have gained.
Another important area that is vital in the women ministry of WSM is the area of “the older teaching the younger”. This is the context of Paul’s letter to Titus, where older women were instructed to teach the young ones especially how to love their Lord and serve him daily and also how to love their husbands. We feel it’s very vital as we create a team that will continue to further the women’s ministry even in future. The goal will be that relationships take on a more personal form as they grow and begin sharing and relating to one another in the way that they share their victories and their sorrows too. They should learn to pray together and study the word of God together.
The family is also another focus for the WSM women’s ministry. The Bible says if the foundations are faulty what will the righteous do? The family is the foundation of the ministry and if the family is not okay, God’s ministry will not progress. Our focus therefore in WSM is that families should be stable, relationships between husbands and wives, should be good, children should be raised in a Godly manner that pleases the Lord. We encourage families to have prayer altars in their homes for we are aware that a family that pray together stays together. We also encourage parents and children to have dialogue with one another for better relationships. We believe that godly people should raise godly children that give God the glory. We therefore have participated in many counselling sessions for the young people, led seminars in partnership with churches and participated in preaching the gospel to the young people. We have witnessed tremendous changes,
