Thank you for visiting the Central District Great Commission Women
Our vision is that each local church would establish a women’s ministry, committed to making disciples of Jesus, relevant to their own context, while focused on: winning women to Christ, building them in their faith, and equipping them to be disciples.
Who We Are
We are a group of women, comprised of individual Alliance churches in Ohio and West Virginia, working together towards five common objectives, along with almost 2,000 other Alliance Churches from around the nation.
- Fellowship: To build healthy, caring relationships among women in the local church.
- Discipleship: To encourage study of God's Word, teaching women to follow Christ and to be built up in their faith.
- Outreach: To equip women to share God's love and the message of the gospel with family, friends, and neighbors.
- Missions: To involve women in the worldwide ministries of the Alliance through intercession, short term missions, support of overseas workers and their families, and an annual project that serves specified needs in various countries.
- Prayer: To promote corporate and individual prayer for Alliance overseas workers, the ministries of the local church, church planting in the United States and prayer for individuals.
Great Commission Women, an auxiliary ministry of the Christian & Missionary Alliance, exists to glorify God as devoted Christ-followers of all generations, empowered by the Holy Spirit to live the Word, do the work and reach the world to the glory of God.
Our name is based on the Great Commission—Jesus’ words recorded in Matthew 28:19–20: “make disciples of all nations.” Our ambition is to encourage women of all generations to be fully engaged in developing an intimate, transforming relationship with Christ. Great Commission Women commits to this journey not for ourselves but for the sake of others—we are disciples who make disciples.
We are excited to announce the fifth Christian and Missionary Alliance National Women's Conference: Celebrate 2018, Our Story. Come join us and be spiritually refreshed at Celebrate 2018. God has graciously provided an excellent group of speakers and artists to encourage, challenge and minister to us. Grammy Award winner Laura Story will be our keynote speaker. Aaron and Sarah Shust will bless us with an opening concert and message. Jane Rubietta will be our Bible teacher. Six breakout sessions and a Missions Celebration are also included in our time together. Gain new passion for your walk with Christ and celebrate what He is doing around the world. You won’t want to miss this intimate and inspiring event!
We hope you are generating excitement with the ladies in your church to attend Celebrate in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Registration is open until September 10, 2018.
National Project 2017-2018
Are you ready for more? That’s right, there is MORE! The National Project theme is a gentle invitation to “more”. In Christ, we find more hope, more healing, more victory, and more light.
Key verse ~ Isaiah 61:1 “The Spirit of the sovereign Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoner.”
We have been sent to reach the poor (more hope), the brokenhearted (more healing), the captives (more victory), and the prisoners (more light) – four categories of people who can be easily overlooked.
Please consider partnering with Great Commission Women this year to bring 'more' to the overlooked people in the following four projects:
AT-RISK GIRLS | WEST AFRICA | $39,375* Hands of Honor (a ministry of CAMA) provides literacy, health, and life-skills training to young women ages 12–19. As domestic workers, these at-risk girls live in strangers’ homes and are far away from their families.
PREGNANT TEENS | ECUADOR | $39,375* Casa Elizabeth provides housing and resources for pregnant girls ages 11–18. Most are pregnant because of abuse from relatives and are placed in Casa Elizabeth through child protective services.
HUMAN TRAFFICKING SURVIVORS | CAMBODIA | $39,375* Agape International Missions (AIM) helps rescue, restore, and reintegrate survivors of sex trafficking. AIM Restoration Home gives 50 girls the opportunity to heal, learn new skills, and experience the love of Jesus in everyday life.
FEMALE PRISONERS | PHILIPPINES | $39,375* Ina-Inakay Center, Inc., helps women released from prison to find small apartments and temporary jobs. Inakay has invested in a muscovado sugar manufacturing business as one employment option for the women.
*Your gift to the GCW National Project will support these four initiatives (63%), the work of U.S. Multicultural Ministries (20%), the ministry of Great Commission Women (13%), and the Great Commission Fund (4%).
