HANDMAIDENS | WOMEN'S MINISTRY


 
 

As a branch of Mission Valley Christian Fellowship, the vision of the handmaiden's ministry mirrors the mission of MVCF: to LOVE, GROW, and HELP all women.

The calling of this ministry is to raise up women who love God with all their heart, mind, soul and strength; women who desire to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; and women who, in turn, will reach out and help other women in practical ways. We do this through Bible studies, retreats, outreach events where we support local charities and community agencies. We have many options for this through the vision of the handmaidens ministry.

We are called handmaidens, because in the Bible we see the example of Mary being told by the angel that she would be carrying the Messiah, the Christ child, Jesus.  Her response was to say, she was a servant to God, and that He could do with her life as He wished. The handmaiden’s ministry desires that our hearts would respond like Mary with whatever the Lord comes to us with. That we are His servants and He can do with us according to what He says.  Our prayer is also for more women to have this heart of obedience.

And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
— Luke 1:38
