"For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding, and we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light."
—Colossians 1:9-12 (NIV)
The Network of Evangelical Women in Ministry (NEWIM) was born out of one woman’s need to connect with other women who were ministering to others, for the purpose of sharing ideas, resources, and spiritual encouragement. The women found tremendous support both personally and for their ministries.
In 1987 NEWIM became a non-profit, inter-denominational organization with our purpose inspired by Colossians 1:9-12.
Today, we continue to be a network of evangelical women who have a heart to love Jesus and have our service flow out of a vibrant walk with Him. Our continuing purpose is to draw women aside and offer opportunities to retreat and be still with the Lord, to pray with others who share the same love for Jesus and be strengthened in order to live a life that is worthy of the Lord.
It is our hope that the ministries and the resources we provide will deepen your desire for a life of service to the Lord and prompt you to follow Him wherever He leads you.
NEWIM continues to minister to women who seek the biblical call to serve Christ, whether they are new in their walk with the Lord or have served Christ for many years. All are called to follow him! NEWIM offers opportunities for women in leadership to rest and be restored by the Lord so that we may love him and others well. Read more about our story...
It is our conviction that women who are serving in ministry (directors of womens' ministries, women who are married to pastors, lay women who are leading ministries and non-profits, women serving as pastors in their churches, missionaries, speakers, Bible Study teachers) need encouragement from one another and set-apart time to be with Jesus. It is the leadership team's desire to provide local small group gatherings, a variety of contemplative retreats, and safe places for women to come and be encouraged. Read about our DREAMS
