Shepherding a Woman’s Heart: A New Model for Effective Ministry to Women

Format: Digital

Overview

We may look at our full slate of Bible studies and women’s ministry programs and wonder why women who are hurting don’t get involved. What a woman in pain needs is a loving shepherd. Why a shepherd? Because a shepherd responds with compassion and understanding. Bev Hislop believes that an effective women’s ministry should involve women who, under the authority of their church’s leadership, are shepherds at heart. A shepherd skillfully dispenses pastoral care that is timely and appropriate. Most importantly, a woman who is a true shepherd ministers to each woman by leading her to drink—first sips from a teaspoon, then mouthfuls from a cup, the cup of the living water—Jesus Christ. Out of her years of experience ministering to hurting women, Bev offers this book in the hope that, by raising up shepherds equipped to address the issues of a woman’s heart, ministries to women will become more relevant and more vital than ever before.
