Women's Ministry (W/M)

The Women’s Ministry is an organized group of women of The Assemblies of God, Ghana and is responsible for uniting the women in the church for Christian service according to the principles and doctrines of the church. The Women’s Ministry meets together in the church to study the word of God and to pray. They also help the needy in the church and in the neighbourhood, as well as visit the sick. They also undertake personal evangelism and take the word of God into homes in the community. As a key arm of growth in every church, the Women’s Ministry plays a major supporting role in the church.

The official name “Young Women in Action” is shortened to Y’s for practical purposes. This group includes young women, aged between 16 and 30 years, to meet their physical, social and spiritual needs. As an auxiliary of the Women’s Ministries, Y’s is sponsored by the national, regional, district and local WM organization.
