"Examine me, Lord, and put me to the test; refine my mind and my heart." Psalm 26:2

Purpose: To train and grow women through Biblical truth, using mentoring, discipleship, study of God's Word (both independently and with other women), prayer and fellowship.

Emphasis:  The underlying emphasis of women's ministries functions will be to promote, encourage and build mentoring between women as laid out in Titus 2 (younger women in the Lord connected to wiser, older women in the Lord).

Authority:  Women's Ministry leadership submits to the authority of the elders of San Tan Bible Church.  Bible studies, programs, events and potential leadership are presented to the elders for their approval.
