My Favorite Online Women's Ministry Resources

November 4, 2015



In a follow up to last week’s post, I thought it would be helpful to share some of my favorite online women’s ministry resources with you.  I have used these resources not only for ministry ideas and support, but also for personal growth as a leader.  There are many more wonderful ministry resources available, but these are the resources I use the most. 

Listed below are brief summaries of each resource.  You will find a more in depth description of each site’s vision and mission once you visit them individually.  I highly encourage getting to know these resources and how they came about.  You can definitely see the heart of these leaders!

Women’s Ministry Toolbox- The name sells itself!  Women’s Ministry Toolbox is an online toolbox for ministry leaders that is full of tips and resources.  Here, you will find a surplus of ministry event ideas, free printables, ice breaker activities for events, and support from other women leaders.  Women’s Ministry Toolbox even has an organizing and planning section of their website that will help you with your event’s budget, vision and execution.  I can’t speak highly enough of this resource!

More to Be- I strongly recommend More to Be as a resource for moms, teens, and mentors.  I have had the privilege of getting to know its founder, Elisa Pulliam, over the last few years and her heart for equipping mothers and mentors to raise up new generations of leaders is undeniable.  At More to Be you will find countless printables (called Topics &Truth FREE downloadable lessons), Bible studies, and encouraging blog posts.   

More to Be goes above and beyond to equip ministry leaders by offering several services such as mentor groups and life coaching tools.  I am honored to serve on the More to Be team as a contributing writer next to Elisa and the rest of team who have such a heart to serve women and the next generation!

Missional Women is an encouraging resource for leaders.  There is a special ministry toolbox that leaders can access (for free!) with a site subscription.   Along with encouraging blog posts, Missional Women has several interactive women’s ministry tools.  You can also find Bible studies, devotionals and helpful tips for leading groups.  Missional Women also has a free app that you can download to access their resources on your mobile device.

Creative Ladies Ministry- I love love love, (did I say love?) Creative Ladies Ministry.  Founder Julia Bettencourt has compiled a site full of devotionals for small group use, event themes (along with decoration ideas) and leader resources.  I have used several of her devotionals with our women’s group and our ladies really enjoyed them.  It’s really a one stop shop for your women’s ministry as far as events go.  If you are especially crafty or love theme events, you will enjoy Julia’s site.  She makes women's ministry event planning look easy and effortless and offers various printables (both free and for purchase) and packages that meet the needs of leaders.

Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU)- WMU is missions education for believers ranging from tiny tots to adult women.  I have such a heart and love for WMU and its mission.  So often we think of mission work as having to leave our homes for a foreign country to spread The Gospel. But WMU works to prove that missions can happen anywhere and at any time.   

On the WMU site you will find an abundance of mission project ideas, resources for mission leaders, and educational tools for helping children understand the value behind praying for a missionaries.  You may have heard of mission groups like Mission Friends, Acteens, and Girls in Action (GA’s) before.  This site offers curriculum to use in small groups as well as support from other leaders.  I am an Acteens leader and I can't tell you how many times I've used the WMU site for new mission project ideas or lessons to use with my girls.  You’ll also find links to your local state WMU as well as upcoming mission trips. 


If you are interested in incorporating missions into your women’s ministry, I highly encourage you to visit WMU and see what they have to offer! 




I hope you find these links and resources helpful as you grow your women’s ministry.  As I said before, these are just a few of my favorites but they are not the only resources available to us as leaders.  If you have a resource you would like to share, please do!  I am always looking for resources to help me grow as a leader.  



Have you heard of these resources before?

  1. So all five of these are new to me! I do primarily family and youth ministry, but I still plan to check these out because so often things can either provide inspiration or be easily modified to fit different audiences! I use a lot of general resources with my High School students, especially now that they are seniors to they are *almost* adults! :) Thanks for sharing these!

  2. I'm always so amazed how much we have right at our finger-tips through the internet! Not only that, but how gracious people are to provide valuable information to anyone who would read.

    I had no idea there were such sites out there devoted to women's ministry! Thank you so much for sharing!
