Women In Ministry
The Women in Ministry (WIM) commission seeks to Equip, Empower and Encourage women to use the gifts and abilities God has entrusted to them in order to bless others and honor God.

We envision women invested in ministry who are committed to prayer, intentional about taking care of themselves and others, desirous to learn and grow spiritually, and ready to laugh & cry with other women in similar situations.

To facilitate this vision, WIM hosts an annual 3-day retreat in the greater Kanto area and partners with women in Hokkaido who lead a one-day retreat In Sapporo. WIM also plans two annual "Day of Prayer" events in Tokyo. Our Facebook page for WIM is a great way to stay connected and a place to post prayer requests, needs /questions, or words of encouragement.
