Women’s Ministry Training

Thinking Biblically and Living Covenantally

A Covenantal Framework for Life and Ministry

Have a CDM Women’s Ministry trainer come to your site and equip your women to provide life-giving leadership that is Word-based and relationally driven. Learn how our theology shows us the way to healthy women’s ministry that contributes to building healthy churches.

Hosting a Training Event

The Women’s Ministries Trainers are women just like you. They serve in their PCA church’s women’s ministries. Their delight is to connect your church’s women’s ministry and presbytery to resources that will help the women you serve think biblically about all of life and then live out those truths in the context of community with the aim of strengthening the church.

  • Our Women’s Ministry Training FAQs Brochure gives information about hosting a women’s ministry training at your presbytery or church.
  • If you would like to have a trainer come to your church or presbytery, please contact Karen Hodge at khodge@pcanet.org.
  • For more information about the topics covered at a training event, see the nine sessions of the Grid series of the enCourage podcast.
