Women’s Ministry

Senegal is 95% Muslim and at most .1% Evangelical Christian. While the Wolof are the dominant people group and there are only about 100 known believers among them, WorldVenture is related to some 27 churches primarily among the Serere People. Most church women are illiterate but intelligent and able to learn. The study of the Bible will make them better mothers, wives, neighbors, and church members…thus impacting all levels of society, but all that is a result of teaching them to grow in the Lord on their own through knowing how to study the Bible. Come join us and help us train, disciple and mentor women among the Wolof and Serere of Senegal.

Learn Wolof and/or Serere and some French. Use your love for God’s word to mentor and teach Senegalese women. Train women who are predominantly oral learners how to study and learn from the Bible so they can demonstrate Christ to their husbands, children and neighbors.

Participate in team life especially prayer, but also help with our facilitating functions in areas of expertise or need.
