When God’s people gather, something special happens. The Holy Spirit begins to move, a unique bond develops, and lives change. We invite you to join us because we know that where two or more are gathered for encouragement, it is even more special. We foster relationships by creating a community of faithful women. We experience life together and support one another’s relationship with Christ. We encourage and equip women of all ages and life stages with Gospel-centered resources. We model Christ in our faith walk and invite you to join us in following Jesus.
Messiah women are committed to inspiring personal growth in Jesus Christ, His Word, Holiness, the church, and growing the kingdom by making disciples. We are excited to bring discipleship resources directly to you from IF:Gathering Ministries—Inspired by the question, “If God is real… then what?”

This discipleship community is designed to provide monthly resources to mentor and be mentored (free through Messiah). It provides accountability, guidance, and encouragement resources (teaching guides, podcasts, activities and challenges). Click here to learn more.
We invite you to engage in the life-changing experience of growing together in God’s Word. Women of all ages and life stages meet in groups of varying sizes and at different times throughout the week. Watch for updates here. We’ll help you find your fit.
