The WiM team has compiled a list of helpful resources for women who will serve in ministry in all sorts of capacities. Whether God has called you to ministry as single or married, or as a missionary, pastor’s wife, Bible translator, writer, mom, teacher, or some combination—we hope these resources prove helpful. We will continue adding to this list as we uncover the best out there!
