Women in Ministry

Women in Ministry (WIM) aims to help Second’s sisters make progress in knowing Christ, becoming like him, and making him known in our various callings and contexts. That’s why God’s Word is at the heart of all our ministry among women at Second.

WIM hosts various gatherings for Bible study, ministry equipping, and intergenerational fellowship. Whether or not you’re a member of Second, you and your friends are welcome to join any WIM gathering. Come grow with us as Word-filled women who hear, do, and share God’s Word!

Bible Study Resources

The Bible is God’s breathed-out Word.

In the Bible, God speaks personally and authoritatively about the salvation he’s accomplished through his Son, the Lord Jesus. And he speaks to us in his Word to change us, to equip us for every good work.

The following videos begin to explain a few basic tools for biblical exposition. They aim to encourage us to keep making progress in hearing God’s Word, doing God’s Word, and retelling God’s Word—all for the glory of Christ Jesus.

Discipleship & Mentoring

Come and See

Come and See is a discipleship ministry for women of different generations to follow Christ together by studying God’s Word and working out how it applies to every area of life. An older woman and a younger woman are paired together and meet weekly to study the Bible, which is the Titus 2 model of discipleship.
