Women's Ministries Upcoming Events & News 2017

February: “She Speaks”, a service of the Women’s Ministries Department of the South Bahamas Conference of Seventh-day Adventists comes to 88.3 FM at 10:30 am every Wednesday. Through the writings of Michelle Clark Jenkins, “She Speaks” will seek to reveal the heart God has for modern day women by using the examples of the extraordinary women of the Bible. Come join us on this remarkable journey!

February 26: Hillview Adventist Women’s Ministries Prayer Breakfast, under the theme “Women United in Service” at 7:00 a.m. in the fellowship hall.

March 4: International Women’s Day of Prayer -“Passionate Prayers and Fearless Faith”

Have you ever poured your heart out to God, pleading with Him for His direct intervention? Have you whispered the kind of prayer that is so deep and so personal that no one, but God Himself, was meant to hear? The 2017 International Women’s Day of Prayer sermon packet is “just for you”.

Our author Gina Wahlen writes: “We must first recognize our own helplessness and reach out to God in faith. We must be completely honest with God, not trying to hide anything from Him. And finally, we must be fully surrendered to God, believing that He loves us, is fully trustworthy, and will keep His promises.”

March 24-26: Women’s Ministries Weekend; Family Island Style.

Under the theme “The Power of Prayer”, the women of Long Island along with Sis. Jacqueline Gibson and a team of women from New Providence will converge at the Millerton Church on Friday evening and the Stevens Church on Sabbath for a dynamic weekend of Prayer, Praise and Spiritual Renewal.

History of Women’s Ministries

Women's Ministries was originally started in 1898 by Mrs. S. M. I. Henry who served as its first director. When Mrs. Henry died in 1900 no new director was appointed and the work begun under her died out. The idea of such a specialized ministry was taken up again beginning in 1973. Over the next 22 years the concept gained momentum. At the division level, North America began Women's Ministries in 1989 and the General Conference voted the Office of Women's Ministries at the Annual Council in 1990 under the leadership of Rose Otis. In 1995 the General Conference in Session voted that Women's Ministries should become a full department. Between 1990 and 1996 each Division established its own Women's Ministries department. Heather-Dawn Small serves as Director of the General Conference Department of Women's Ministries; Raquel Arrais is the Associate Director.

8. To establish a youth arm to Women’s Ministries to facilitate the continuity of its service to the Church.
