GIRLS ONLY MINISTRY Overview
Target demographics: Girls between the ages of 13 and 23.
Direct beneficiaries per year: On an average, we serve over 30 girls each month.
Geographic areas served: Denver, Colorado
Programs: Tuesday Night Dinners!
Scheduled Occurrence: Tuesday Night Dinner occurs on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month, beginning in January and concluding in December.
Purpose: The purpose of Tuesday Night Dinner is to host a group of girls between the ages of 13 and 23 within a pre-approved home within the community. It is the desire of Girls Only Ministry to have girls gather for dinner and Bible Study at the same time on the same scheduled dates while studying the same Bible Study materials. This will provide a sense of community while maintaining smaller groups with the intent to build strong relationships between the girls participating and the volunteers present.
Dinner includes: A Salad or Side Dish, Main Dish, Dessert, and Beverages for each girl and volunteer in attendance.
Dinner begins at 6:30pm and concludes around 7:15pm
Dinner is served around a table that seats all those in attendance.
Bible Study: Following dinner, the girls in attendance participate in a Bible Study written and taught by Girls Only Ministry.
Vision Statement: Girls Only Ministry is a place that provides shelter, education, and love to girls within the community between the ages of 13 and 23.
It is our belief that these years are the most formative in a young woman’s life, and we passionately believe these are the years where their relationship with Jesus Christ has the opportunity to drastically impact their lives.
Girls Only is determined to show the love, grace, forgiveness and compassion of Jesus Christ to girls between the ages of 13 and 23 years of age.
It is the desire of this ministry to use every word spoken, either in person or in writing to encourage these girls to know and love Jesus Christ more intimately. It is the desire of this ministry to use the Word of the Lord to teach and transform lives.
It is the desire of this ministry to bring glory to Jesus as a result of the relationships that are built in relationship with His calling on the lives of those who love Him.
May hearts overflow with love for their Father and Savior,
may lives be transformed and may He be glorified.
It is at this dinner table where they come and talk about what they are going through. These girls share the joys of successful athletic, music and scholastic achievements; they share the sorrow of heartbreak and loss. Girls come on Tuesday Nights with heavy stuff upon their hearts. Some are battling anorexia and bulimia, some are homosexual, some are cutting themselves, some are having sex with their boyfriend, some have experienced pregnancy, abortion and miscarriages, some are struggling because their parents are fighting or are divorced, some have been abandoned by mom or dad or even both. Some are failing their classes, some are struggling with self image, self worth and who the Lord has created them to be. It is at the dinner table where these girls get to leave behind the things of life and cling to the one and only Jesus.
The main focus of Tuesday Night Dinner is to dive into the Lord’s Word and teach these girls how to study the Word. We read, discuss and even look into the historical context of scripture as we discuss issues these girls are facing on a daily basis. My prayer is that these girls come to Tuesday Night Dinner, enjoy a good meal and leave with the confidence that Jesus loves them dearly and the Bible evidence to confidently cling to His love until we are able to enjoy dinner together again.
We have a fundraising goal of securing: 50, $100.00 monthly donations for a minimum 2 year commitment. With those donations, we will have a total operating budget of $60,000.00 per year.
First and foremost, it is the dream of this ministry to expand Tuesday Night Dinner into additional homes across the state. This requires intense back ground checks and training for the additional host homes. Imagine, young women coming together every Tuesday Night in the midst of all they have going on to eat dinner together, study the Word of the Lord and receive the hope and love that comes out of the pages of His Word. Secondly, we have basic business needs that need to be taken care of. We are in need of a new Website that has the capability to receive electronic donations, promote future events, host a blog, and stream live video as we progress to an additional host home for Tuesday Night Dinner. We are in need of business supplies, computers, printers, soft ware programs and more. Finally, the ministry is at a place where I, as CEO and President need to be devoting more time on a consistent basis to the writing and study of the curriculum these girls study on Tuesday Nights as well as the business operations of the ministry.
The girls within the ministry are important. They are bringing their friends. They are falling in love with Jesus; they are studying His word and clinging to the truth of it. These girls are dealing with some big issues and Girls Only is the place where they can come and deal with whatever stuff, good and bad, they have within the page of the Word.
