The Women’s Ministry is committed to encouraging the women of our church and community to love and follow Jesus. It is our goal to raise up a generation of women who passionately seek after God, who know His Word, who want to serve others, and who desire to finish faithfully.

A discipleship group (D-group) consists of 5-8 participants who commit to meeting together weekly for 18-24 months for the purpose of spiritual growth and replication. Following the daily Bible reading plan in the book, Foundations, they read Scripture, journal their impressions, and then meet to discuss. Upon completion of the book, each participant prayerfully considers launching her own D-group. If you are interested in committing to a discipleship group, please click the box below to fill out an interest form, and we will be in touch with you soon.
What is Mentoring?
Based on Titus 2:3-5, mentoring is a ministry that benefits women of all ages. An older woman invests in the the life of a younger woman through listening, guidance, prayer, encouragement, laughter, and good company.
Mentors meet with their mentee at least once per month and maintain weekly contact via text, phone calls, email, etc. The meeting format is informal and flexible, ranging from coffee dates or meals out to visiting in each other’s homes to simply running errands together. Mentors will be provided with discussion questions based on the Equipped monthly podcast content to share with their mentees and facilitate conversation and spiritual encouragement.
While a mentor is expected to pursue and reflect Jesus, she is simply one who has gone before us and can offer insight and wisdom from her life experience thus far. If you’re interested in being a mentor, mentee, or both, please sign up below, and we will be in touch. Please click here to read further details about what is expected of a mentor and how we will help prepare you.
“The mentoring program at MBCC has been a really meaningful way for me, as a working mom, to connect with a more seasoned woman in life. This is my second year fellowshipping and praying with the same precious woman in the mentoring program. It has been a very uplifting and encouraging experience to just share life with her. It might be once a week, or once a month due to my busy work schedule but we will always stay in touch. The Bible says that iron sharpens iron and my mentor definitely points me to my Redeemer in every possible way. I highly recommend women of all walks of life to connect with a prayer partner through the mentoring program at MBCC. It will only be a positive experience.” – Mentee, Elle Hargrove
“What a privilege it is to be a mentor for a younger wife and mom at MBCC. God definitely put us together and it has been such a treat to get to know her…we have decided we are paired for life! We meet for coffee to chat about how God is working in our lives or go to Storytellers Live to hear how other godly women handle the bumps in life (or now just talk on the phone or social distance until this pandemic is over). As believers we are called to be encouragers and to spread joy along with the truth of God’s word and that is what God is doing as the two of us discuss life.“ – Mentor, Mary Carman
Every month, the Women’s Ministry will release an episode that covers a topic related to spiritual growth and faith. You’ll hear from women in our church family who will share both encouragement and practical suggestions. The hope is that you’ll feel more equipped for challenges such as: overcoming fears of praying aloud, handling confrontation with grace, studying the Bible on your own, and even using social media for the glory of God.
