Experience growth, encouragement and wisdom
We are a community of authentic, like-minded women who help and support each other as we seek to find our purpose spiritually and personally. Women will be encouraged and developed through one-on-one or group relationships. Women will discover who they are in Christ, discern God’s purpose for their lives and be refreshed experiencing God in a new and deeper way.
A MINISTRY BASED ON TITUS 2:3-5
A woman with more life experiences and wisdom who can guide, love and encourage mentees
A woman with less life experience or who may be experiencing a difficult season in her life
A woman committed to praying daily for God to guide and bless the Mentor/Mentee relationship
There are three roles in this ministry. An experienced group of women spend hours prayerfully considering all the profiles, and with God’s guidance, “matches” a Mentee (one or more) with a Mentor and a Prayer Warrior. We have women of all ages and walks of life who participate, many returning year after year as Mentors and Prayer Warriors, as they have found how much they enjoy making new friends and encouraging women. The program runs from October – March with a celebration in April.

We encourage you to print these three self-knowledge quizzes and take the time to complete and score each one. Bring them with you to the Matching Night event. These can serve as good conversation starters as you get to know your mentor, mentee and prayer warrior.
This ministry has been such a blessing to me. It’s a place to be authentic and share life experiences with caring women that want to listen. I continue on the life path of learning how to be the woman God wants me to be. This is a place to seek Godly wisdom and the blessing of unconditional love from other women.Lisa M
I have been part of the W2W Ministry for 10 years. I have watched 100’s of lives transformed, including mine. I think we, as woman, have a hard job juggling all our responsibilities in addition to life’s challenges. Women need someone to genuinely listen to them and give Godly direction when they get stuck. That’s what the mentoring program is about. I am proud I have been called to be a part of it.Pam W
The time I spent in Woman-to-Woman Mentoring was phenomenal. The friendships God established will last forever and I grew in ways I didn’t even know possible. The trials and eventual victories were sweeter with these women by my side. I have these women as my friends until the day I die and beyond.Krista G
Praying for the women in my Mentoring group has been an absolute privilege this year. Drawing near to these wonderful women, sharing their prayer concerns, rejoicing in answered prayers and witnessing their phenomenal spiritual growth has encouraged me in my own life! Praise God for an awesome experience.Cindy P
Frequently asked questions
How do you match a Mentor with a Mentee with a Prayer Warrior?
Each woman fills out a detailed, personal profile and indicates the role in which she is interested. An experienced group of women spend hours prayerfully considering all the profiles, and with God’s guidance, “matches” a Mentee (one or more) with a Mentor and a Prayer Warrior.
After I am “matched”, what happens next?
Each group decides what meeting day/time/location works best for them. Experience has shown that meeting weekly develops the truest relationships and provides opportunities to walk through life together as it unfolds. Of course there is flexibility in the program, but to get the fullest and richest experience, we strongly encourage weekly commitments.
What happens at our weekly meetings?
The first few meetings will be an opportunity to get to know each other, share goals, understand what areas of life you may currently be seeking some wisdom and support, or in what personal growth opportunities you may be interested . Our Mentors have great resources available, and together, the group can determine next steps.
What if I’m concerned about others finding out about my past and that I might be judged and not accepted?
Most of us feel this same way at the beginning, so you are not alone. Each member of this ministry has experienced times in their past where they have not made the wisest decisions, and are eager to share how they have found God’s grace and forgiveness and have grown through those challenges. This ministry can provide truly authentic friendships if you are willing to risk being open and honest.
What if I don’t feel like I have been matched with someone who understands what I’m seeking from this ministry?
We have leaders on each campus who are committed to ensuring that each person who participates in this ministry will have the richest experience possible. If there is a concern with any placements, just reach out to the appropriate leader to discuss your concerns.
I’ve always enjoyed the dynamics of a larger group setting—does this ministry offer something similar?
We do offer the option of participating in a group that includes 2 or more Mentees matched to one Mentor/Prayer Warrior.
Are there more activities than just mentor “meetings”?
We plan volunteering and service opportunities, and we are working this year to establish planned and “spur of the moment” fun, social events using social media to reach the ministry members. As social media participation grows, we hope to expand our ministry in this area as well.
