Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Equipping Women through TGC’s Women’s Training Network

Recommended Posts

wtn-green-tgc1-300x128.jpg

Our God is working. By grace, he invites his people to join him in the work, gifting and equipping us to serve those around us. This beautiful task of building the church and making disciples has been given to us all.

Excited by the work God is doing in and through his people, the goal of the Women’s Training Network (WTN)—a new initiative from TGC—is to come alongside the local church to further equip women both for individual growth and to serve the various ministries to which each has been called. Some women are called to facilitate Bible studies in the local church; others will write Bible studies. Many will share the gospel with co-workers and neighbors; others might exposit the book of John to her women’s group. Many will disciple other women, and others will be further equipped to instruct children. There are a variety of ways God gifts and calls us to serve, all informed by his Word.

Thus, the mission of WTN is to encourage and train women to use the Scriptures well. To do this, WTN will launch five events in the U.S. in 2019. These events, called Two-Day Intensives, offer multiple tracks of curriculum, inviting you to choose the track that best fits your need. Together over the two days, we pray the interactive teaching in the workshops will practically train women, and the plenary sessions will offer encouragement to their hearts. They’ll hear the WTN values repeated as the heartbeat of the work: we labor to be grounded in the Scriptures and centered on the gospel as we equip women to serve, all for the glory of Christ.

So if you’re looking to grow in the ways you disciple women, we have workshops on discipleship. If you teach the Bible and want to think more deeply about the structures of biblical poetry or tracing biblical themes, we have workshops just for you. If you want to be able to better articulate what the Scriptures say about suffering, justice, or the gospel, we have workshops we can’t wait to share with you. And if you want to grow in your understanding of how to read, study, interpret, apply, and explain the Scriptures, then know that everything we teach is grounded in the Word of God.

We hope you’ll join us! These are the 2019 events:

    • Another Women’s March Chapter Cancels Protest After Anti-Semitism Controversy

      By Joe Simonson - A planned demonstration in New Orleans has been canceled by the Louisiana Chapter of the liberal organization Women’s March, citing recent accusations of anti-Semitism by the group’s founders. The protest, initially planned for Jan. 19, is the latest casualty following shocking reporting that some of the most senior members of Women’s March discussed conspiracy theories about Jews and had close ties to the radical Nation of Islam. Rather than go ahead with the New Orleans protest, organizers said they will instead embark on a “listening tour” throughout the state. Leaders of the Louisiana chapter also said the anti-Semitism controversy potentially hampered their fundraising efforts. Normal costs for such protests, organizers said, total over $12,000. Their latest months-long fundraising campaign raised a mere $600. Over 10,000 people joined the first New Orleans Women’s March in 2017. “It is important for everyone to reach out into our local communities and find ways to get involved in the meantime,” a statement from the group on Facebook said. “There are many advocacy groups doing great work in our state that should be supported with your time and money.” Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.
