“The Girls Discipleship Summit was a dream formed after a simple coffee shop conversation. After feeling led to serve in the student ministry and to disciple a high school girl, one of the women was struggling with the feelings of failure in her ministry. As the two women talked, it quickly became evident that she was not alone, her struggles were normal. They both walked away from that time recognizing the value of the encouragement of believers and the equipping of the saints in the work of the ministry. Knowing that every area of ministry presents its own, unique opportunities and challenges, these women felt led to gather together with others with the same call as theirs – to discipleship and minister to teenage girls. A few months later, the first Girls Discipleship Summit was hosted at Henderson Hills Baptist Church.
Three years later, we have continued to see the incredible opportunity and blessing the GDS is for women of all ages who either currently are, or who have a desire to begin, serving among teenage girls. Each year the Lord has grown this community of women and, this year, we could not be more excited to have women joining us from all of the OKC metro and Ada for a day of encouraging and equipping!
This year’s theme is “The Grace of Faith: The Sanctifying Tension of Grace and Obedience in Discipleship” and our key speaker will be author Kristin Hatton. Another new element this year will be an opportunity to attend breakout sessions that will go deeper into specific areas of ministry to teen girls. We will have sessions covering topics about the discipleship of girls in the areas of technology to shame to Urban ministry and more!
The GDS will be a sweet time or fellowship, encouragement, and equipping. Whether you are a mother, community group leader, volunteer, discipler, or sister, the Summit is for you! Any woman from high school age to older is welcomed to attend. Let us know if you have questions. We hope to see you there!”
