A letter from Tammy Bennet, new Women’s Ministries strategist
I am both honored and humbled to be named the new Women’s Ministry strategist for the SBC of Virginia.
My involvement with Women’s Ministry began in my twenties. It was through godly gals, such as yourselves, that I was mentored and taught biblical precepts on how to be the best wife, mother, and friend possible. I reason to say that if it weren’t for the prayer and support of an active Women’s Ministry program, my life, my faith, and my love for God would not be what it is today. My heart and passion is that the Women’s Ministries within Virginia will continue to embody that same love and devotion to God that I was introduced to so long ago—women of all ages mentoring women of all ages.
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. – Titus 2:3-5 (NIV)
The very first SBCV Women’s Ministry strategist, Sue Sawyer, has not only blazed the trail for Women’s Ministry within the Commonwealth, but she exemplifies the advancement of women mentoring women for the sole purpose of furthering the Kingdom of God. She has set high standards that I will strive to further and promote within the SBCV. Thank you, Sue.
In the days ahead, I look forward to personally meeting each one of you, and I’m eager to hear about what God is doing within your individual ministries. Until then, please email me with any questions, needs, concerns, suggestions, prayer requests, etc.
