The mission of DEC is to glorify God by making mature disciples of Jesus through worship, community and proclaiming the Gospel locally and globally. This is the same mission that guides the DEC women’s ministry.

The vision of women’s ministry at DEC is to offer opportunities for spiritual growth, events, and support that aligns with the overall mission of DEC and addresses the unique needs and roles of women. As daughters of the King we are chosen, redeemed, cleansed, called, empowered, and enabled to bring the message of Jesus Christ to a broken world. This vision promotes a life that is centered in Christ and an identity that is rooted in God’s unconditional and extravagant love for his children so that we are always prepared to share the reason for the hope we have in Christ.


To be fully Known and to be fully Loved, by God.

That is what we desire 2019 to be about for us.

What a life changing truth to aspire to understand at the core of who we are?

As a women’s ministry team, we would like to communicate with you the vision for 2019.

 

To be fully Known and to be fully Loved, by God.

We know this truth in our heads but we want to own it deep in our hearts so that each mountain we climb or valley we muck through has a new purpose and a new perspective.

I have no doubt that each of us understand from experience the realities of life – the good, the bad and the ugly.  But we also know the beauty and fullness and love that life has to offer.

We, as a community, desire to be connected by unity in the promise of our Savior and to be defined by Him. No matter your position or place, your age or background, your experiences or failures – we want to allow the depth and fullness and grace of Jesus’s love pierce our souls this year.  Together.
