Women Ministry Director
This movement is also about women empowering women. The women’s group has it’s moving and shaking over the years like any other group or organization. The names of the ministry evolved over the years as our mandate grew. Some of the names were Women’s Auxiliary; Women’s Fellowship Department and now Women’s Fellowship Ministry. As our command widens and the realization is revealed to us that we are more than a department we are a tool to assist and guide the women of the church.
Over the 21 years of existence, we have had three presidents and two secretaries. The first president started a women’s choir which got choked along the way. Thanks to God, and with His help, we have started another. We minister to the congregation every fourth Sunday.
Over the years we have initiated events such as Old Time Runnings; Official Dinners; The operating of the church Tuck Shop; Sewing Classes; Fish Fry; Visitations to other churches at various locations. We have stopped some activities, changed some, and tried different ones here and there. Shortly we will be restarting some of those activities as our membership has grown and need more Women’s Ministry activities starting with a committee dinner for 2017.
We want to thank and applaud all our past Presidents for their hard work which has transported this movement on its journey. We pray that these persons will continue working for the Kingdom for the work of Christ is all about Kingdom building. We also want to thank the ladies who worked in this movement over the years to make it what it is today. God has noted your efforts.
A big thank you goes to Pastor Kenroy Salter and Assistant Pastor Margaret Salter for embracing and supporting the movement over the twenty-one years. With Christ in the vessel, we will smile at the storm.
Praise Chapel Apostolic Ministry lives by its vision statement: To be a model assembly in Jamaica; dedicated to the development of the whole man: To meet the needs of the changing society in which we operate. In so doing, the Women Ministry launched an educational fund program in August 2019 called the Praise Chapel Women’s Committee Educational Fund.
This program is geared towards, as the mission statement says, the development of its members and the wider community it serves.
This initiative was birth out of the pure heart of helping out families to combat the very strenuous back to school expenses.
We the women’s department realize how hopeless, powerless and depressing this can be for any family and so we decide to give a helping hand as the bible directs us to “distribute to the necessity of the saints’ (Romans 12:13).
This fund will be given to the parents of the children that are moving on to secondary level education. Our source of funding is through fundraising activities put on by different members of this committee. For 2019 we were able to help 2 families and want to be instrumental in more families for 2020.
