For over fourteen years, JEWEL has been an equipping and training ministry for the women of Venture Christian Church. It has encouraged women to connect with one
another as they walk in fellowship with God.
This summer we decided to do a new thing and change the name from JEWEL to Prayer and Mentoring Ministry in an effort to more clearly define what we do.
The Prayer Partnerships (formerly PEARL) will focus on becoming Women of Prayer. The sessions will include prayer tools such as Praying Scripture, Listening to God, Armor of God, Spiritual Warfare, as well as practical ways to bless and encourage their Prayer Partner.
The Mentor training (formerly RUBY) will continue to provide in-depth mentor training. The Mentor
is paired with a Merea (Hebrew for huggable friend). They will meet weekly for a deeper one-on-one
relationship with a sister in Christ. The Mentor
looks for what God is already doing in the Merea’s life and works to encourage
and equip her as she follows Him.
We hold informational meetings each fall for women to sign up for the six month training on how to walk with Him and each other. There will be a day for everyone to meet over brunch where you will meet your partner for six months. You will meet monthly as a group and monthly with each other. The partners will work out their own schedule to meet that will work with their calendars.
We take the summer off to spend time with family and refresh. Hope to see you in the fall.
