Assemblies of God General Superintendent George O. Wood will be participating in a Network for Women in Ministry (WIM) Town Hall on Wednesday, September 24, at the Cardone Media Center in Springfield, Missouri.

The WIM Town Hall begins at 2:30 p.m. (CDT) before a live audience of Assemblies of God female credential holders. The event will also be live-streamed, with Dr. Wood fielding questions from the live audience as well as the online audience.

Judy Rachels, the chairperson for the Network for Women in Ministry, is hosting the Town Hall and will also moderate the event, which will be an open-topic forum.

"Few leaders in recent history have been as instrumental in lifting the awareness of Women in Ministry as our current general superintendent, Dr. George O. Wood," Rachels says. "On Wednesday he will focus his attention — ear, heart and voice — on Women in Ministry. We want our credentialed women to set aside this time to ask questions, give their perspective, and give ear to Dr. Wood's prophetic voice. Be there!"

"We want to especially encourage female lead pastors to log on and watch the event," explains Stephanie Nance, communications strategist for WIM. "Of the 8,132 female credential holders, 528 of them serve as lead pastors, and that number is growing. We ask that they participate, voicing their questions and unique insights. Dr. Wood wants to hear their voices in the discussions."

"I'm genuinely looking forward to participating in the Women in Ministry Town Hall," Dr. Wood states. "Interacting with AG female pastors, hearing their hearts and concerns, and exploring questions and solutions that other pastors and leaders can benefit from are some of the key purposes of this live event."

Women's Ministries stamp collecting aids libraries

Thu, 04 Dec 2003 - 12:29 PM CST

For more than four decades, Women's Ministries groups around the country have been collecting used postage stamps, donating more than $60,000 from their resale to missions. This ongoing project, called The Library Fund, serves a twofold purpose: providing funds for A/G Bible schools and a nontraditional ministry opportunity for the many retired missionaries and shut-ins who help prepare stamps for sale. The effort began in 1962.

Each year the national Women's Ministries Department receives more than a thousand packages of stamps in varying shapes and sizes. "The Library Fund is a project that appeals to many Women's Ministries groups because it does not require a large amount of finances or fund raising," says Karlene Gannon, office and finance/projects coordinator for the national Women's Ministries Department. "The whole church can be involved in this recycling project."

Women's Ministries groups coordinate the collection, preparation and shipment of the canceled postage stamps to the national Women's Ministries Department for marketing. Some church groups also ask local utility companies and businesses to save envelopes. Postage stamps that are placed lower on the envelope are easier to sell, and large commemorative stamps are more valuable. The 2002 grants totaled $1,700 and benefited nine Bible schools from each of the six Assemblies of God World Missions regions.

"The Women's Ministries and all those who have taken time to collect the used stamps have made it possible for us to purchase much-needed books for our library here at Joy Bible Institute," says Phil Rojak, U.S. A/G missionary in Vanuatu. "Like most Bible schools, our school's funds are at a premium, and often there are not enough funds left over to adequately stock our library. The Library Fund has helped us to better equip our students."
