Women's Ministries

Women’s Ministries, through the ABNWT, exists to help women fulfill God’s purpose in their lives. Our desire is to see passion identified & pursued, potential unleashed & purpose fulfilled.  We strive to provide opportunities for women to be encouraged, equipped & empowered.

Whether you are a ministry leader, a pastor or a pastor’s wife, a woman in the market place or at home, you have great influence in the lives of those around you.  When you are involved in a flourishing relationship with Christ first, you are able to lead those around you to do the same, as you fulfill God’s purpose for your life.  The goal is to become healthy, whole women, who serve God by serving others.  We were created for relationship, and as women, opportunities to nurture those relationships is so life-giving.  It is our prayer that the opportunities we provide are relevant, refreshing, restorative & refining.

  • Women in Ministry: If you are a woman who is credentialed through the PAOC, is married to a PAOC credential holder, or is on the ministry staff with a PAOC church, we invite you to attend this weekend of blessing and appreciation.
  • Basecamp: This weekend away is intended to be a time to refocus & reflect. This annual, spring, all-inclusive weekend is perfect for any woman looking for spiritual refreshment. Whether you come with friends, or come by yourself, you will not be alone!
  • Northern Women’s Retreat. The NWT is a beautiful place to explore.  It is filled with beautiful diamonds waiting to be discovered.  We are giving the women of Alberta an opportunity to go to Hay RIver to participate in a bi-annual ladies retreat hosted by the Hay River Pentecostal Church.  Here you will meet amazing women (and men) who love to have connection with the southern part of our district.  This is a chance for you to be blessed, as well as be a blessing!
