Women in Ministry - July/August 2007 Issue

Shoes to Fill

There were many women who bravely stepped out into ministry at a time when it was more challenging for women to be accepted in ministry roles. These women serve as great ministry models for women in ministry today. We have been called to fill their shoes and carry on the Lord’s work.

In this issue, we look at several women who were called and empowered by God in the 20th century. They fearlessly planted churches and launched colleges and mission organizations that played an important role in the early years of the Assemblies of God.

Read on and be inspired to slip on their shoes.
