A Word from Our Director and Founder
My passion for supporting women in ministry developed as a result of sharing with women from all walks of life. I feel blessed and privileged that they have invited me into their private spaces—sharing with me their personal growth, joys, stresses and struggles in ministry—as they searched for a stronger biblical and theological understanding of their calling and purpose. Through this process, I discovered that women ministers desire mentors hip and friendship. These relationships, in turn, provide women with moral and spiritual support, new-found knowledge, and a feeling of being connected to the wider ministry. Therefore, it is my heartfelt prayer that Deborah’s Women in Ministry (DWIM) of Greater Hampton Roads will be a support system for your personal and professional growth as it has been for so many of us.
