She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
Proverbs 31:25 (NIV)
While we're busy juggling life, giving or getting direction, and trying to take time to refuel, it's so rewarding to find acceptance, engage in good conversation, and experience ongoing spiritual growth.
The Brookwood BWomen ministry offers women ages 18 and up with opportunities to find support and fulfillment through Small Groups, events and the Mentoring Ministry as a Mentor or Mentee. Come join other women at Brookwood who are building strong, Christ-centered foundations in their lives and their homes as well as reaching out to touch the lives of other women in the community and around the world.
Monthly Prayer Meeting
They all met together and were constantly united in prayer...
Acts 1:14a (NLT)
Women of Brookwood! Come and be part of something simple, but yet so powerful – the BWomen Monthly Prayer Meeting. We'll draw close in humble worship as we join in prayer for our community.
BWomen meets the third Monday of every month for prayer from 6:30–8 pm in Pod D. Registration is not required. Just show up!
Our BWomen Mentoring Mission is to grow spiritually in our knowledge and devotion by walking together in Christ through studying, applying scripture and praying together.
Mentors provide spiritual guidance, encouragement and opportunities to share and be heard.
Life's distractions often keep us from being intentional about our relationship with Jesus. The Mentor/Mentee Partnership creates an environment to dive deep into God's Word and work through life's struggles.
60-90 minutes at least twice per month.
Mentor/Mentees can meet at Brookwood Church or any public location comfortable for both the Mentor and Mentee. FaceTime is always an option if schedules are demanding or if a Young Adult is away at college for the time.
Mentor/Mentee Partnerships are for everyone. In Matthew 28:19 Jesus tells us to go and make disciples of all nations... Age is not a restriction. Everyone regardless of age can experience transformed life and grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus.
We encourage it! Young Adults are in the process of moving into adulthood. There's a lot to learn and lots of big decisions to make during this stage of life, so it's healthy to have cross-over. We also have Young Adults representatives serving on the Men's and Women's leadership teams to ensure that all Young Adults' interests are being represented and Young Adults are paired up with an appropriate, same gender, Mentor/Mentee.
Tama Looney - Mentor
I feel that God calls believers like me to spend time building up and encouraging others which in strengthens our relationship with Him. Michelle and I meet for lunch and I sincerely look forward to our weekly talks. We get to break away from the craziness of our responsibilities and spend time talking about our lives and how God is using situations, people and even challenges to grow us on a daily basis.
By serving as a mentor, I'm able to watch Michelle grow in her relationship with Christ, and I’m also blessed by her eager spirit, her heart for Christ, and challenged by her quest for knowledge and wisdom that results in me digging into the Bible and strengthening my own walk.
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. …Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9, 12 (NLT)
Jevia Lyn Thompson - Mentee
I was looking for a Christian mentor, a one-to-one relationship. I felt a need to have a prayer partner and an accountability partner. The BWomen ministry offered mentoring, so my prayers were answered and Paula and I began to build our relationship. I have learned to be grateful for all that I have and to pay attention to where God is working around me. Hebrews 13:5 says that God will never leave me nor will He ever forsake me. He always provides what I need in His timing.
Paula Condon - Mentor
My mother passed away when I was 19 years old. Because of that loss, I have a desire to mentor young women who need a mother figure present in their life journeys. When Jevia Lyn was assigned to me, I was quite reluctant to accept the assignment as it did not meet my criteria. However, God thought differently. He knew Jevia Lyn needed a mother and I needed someone to nuture. Through our months together, we have forged a friendship that has brought many blessings to both of us. This assignment has taught me that obedience to God is a command (2 John 1:6 NLT). We are to walk in love. If we had not obeyed God, Jevia Lyn and I both would have missed out on the loving hands of God steering us to a delightful and truthful friendship.
Angie Fowler - Mentor
To me mentoring is positioning myself to see God work in someone's life and my own, being open and humble to Him and what He wants me to know, and being ready to receive His truth and act upon it.
Mentoring Gwyn has been a blessing and privilege. She encourages me without even knowing it. The Lord has brought us together and given me a passion and love for young adults, especially because I’m praying for a young adult family member to come into a relationship with Jesus Christ!
