Women's Ministry

Focus: Our ministry network seeks to find energizing and creative ways to connect lay and ordained women in ECCT in order to support, empower and equip women in the world.

ScopeThe Women's Ministry Network catalyzes women's support in their various ministries throughout ECCT. For instance, the network intends to collaborate with ECW, Daughters of the King, Girls Friendly, and other women's ministries and networks to celebrate the work that they are doing. As an emerging Ministry Network, one of the first events will happen this March 23rd, on International Women's Day, called: Equipping and Empowering God's Women: A Way Forward. This event will host and celebrate women's work throughout Connecticut and the world.
