2016 Christian Women Connection Young Ambassadors
Home Church: Edgemont Church of God, East St. Louis, Illinois
As a Christian, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He paid the price for my sins. It is because of Him that I have life. Even as a youth in Christ, my desire is to always serve God and to do His will. I believe that being considered as a Young Ambassador through Christian Women Connection I will learn more about Christ and help other young women as well.
How can Christian Women Connection be an effective ministry in your life? Christian Women Connection provides resources to enable women to experience a spiritually enhanced life. I believe that this organization promotes sisterhood through sharing the Word of God with those who seek a closer relationship with Him. God is about unifying His people through love and discipleship. Through Christian Women Connection, I know that there would be opportunities for me to learn more about God, to connect with other Christian young ladies, and to use my skills to work in the Kingdom.
What are some of the ways that women’s ministry can reach out and welcome younger women? It is important to be more interactive in community service where you can reach out to other women who may need help, but have no resources. I also feel that we should meet and greet others in order to get to know and fellowship with them. We should spread the good news of Jesus Christ by sending out flyers, using social media, and having services explaining what we do as an outreach ministry.
What are your gifts and how would you use them in a women’s ministry setting? I love to help and serve others by volunteering and mentoring other young people. I know that this is one of my stronger gifts, as I have always been very giving and very helpful. I am also very prayer oriented.
What are your dreams and aspirations for the future? In the future, I wish to attend college at either the University of Missouri or the University of Kentucky. I would like to study stem cells or become an OB/GYN. Also, it is my goal to continue to be of service to the Kingdom, my church and to the community in which I live.
Home Church: Brazos Valley Church of God, Bryan, Texas
My name is Christianna Wilson and I attend Brazos Valley Community Church of God in Bryan, Texas. I am twelve years old and in the seventh grade. My extra-curricular activities include National Junior Honor Society, volleyball, soccer, and track.
Christian Women Connection has been an effective ministry in my life. The women of CWC introduced me to Christ at age eleven and soon after I gave my life to Christ. The women of this group brought me closer to Christ and it has changed my life completely. They have caused me to be confident in my walk with Christ and around others as I boldly proclaim Christ as my Lord and Savior. The women of this group can be best described as the verse of Titus 2:3: “Likewise, tell the older women to be reverent in behavior, not to be slanderers or slaves to drink; they are to teach what is good…” The older women of this organization teach the younger women what is good and what is right in the eyes of God.
I think Christian Women Connection could reach out to younger women by starting a mentoring program. This program should not only reach out to younger women in the church, but at home or with school work. The women can guide, show, and tell younger women about who God is and show His good works. It is important as a young woman that we not only hear about what we should be doing but we also should be able to see it through the actions of those around us.
One of my gifts is to preach the Word of God. I would use my gift in a ministry setting by ministering the Word to other women who want to know Him or want to have a deeper relationship with Him. One thing that I would love to do is hold a state wide conference. At these conferences we would have small group sessions and go deeper into His Word on an intimate level. These conferences will help young women realize that they are not alone, God is with them, and there are other women who have been through the same thing.
My dreams and aspirations for the future are to bring more, older and younger, women to Christ. While that is a good dream, my greatest dream is to have a greater relationship with God and to grow as a woman of God. Through my deepened relationship with God, I desire to become the woman that God has created me to be. Christian Women Connection is a platform that is being used for great things for the kingdom of God. I am blessed to be a part of this organization.
