Women's Ministries

The Ohio Conference Women's Ministries will be on a partial haitus this year while we restructure our ministry to the women of Ohio.

This means we will not be having our annual tea or retreat in 2015.

It also means we will have smaller, more intimate events during the year (such as the Inspired Intimacy seminar we had in February).  Our goal is to meet more of the needs of our Ohio ladies.

Please feel free to contact Heidi Shoemaker at wministries@ohioadventist.org for any suggestions or comments regarding this important ministry.  Thank you for your patience.
