Girls Ministries church-based discipleship program has a legacy of godly women coming alongside girls, guiding them on a path to become mature and godly women. Our goal is simple: To see every girl moving toward a deep relationship with Jesus Christ, and to realize her importance and potential in the kingdom of God.
What Makes Girls Ministries Different? Girls Ministries discipleship program is the premier program for preschool through high school girls in the world. No other girls ministry program has our variety of activities, focused discipleship track, or a 60-plus-year proven track record of helping girls become confident, godly women who are leaders in the church, home, and world.
Why Gender-Specific? Research shows girls learn more quickly and deeply when they are taught by a role model. Girls need a real-life example. When a girl understands what it means to be a godly woman, she aspires to the design that God intended. A single-gender classroom has many benefits, but the greatest of these is for a girl to feel safe and secure in her discovery of who God intended her to be.
Join the Club: If you're looking for a girls ministry that seamlessly weaves fun and biblical training together, Girls Ministries Girls Clubs are for you! Your girls will get:
• Adventures, activities, and games that show them how discovering God's Word is fun!
• Lessons in valuable life skills from sportsmanship and integrity, to cooking and outreach.
• One-on-one help in choosing actions, attitudes, and behaviors that please God.
The Bottom Line: Relationships Girls encounter difficult situations as they grow up. By intentionally fostering relationships between girls and leaders through Girls Clubs, you can create a safe environment for girls to discuss issues they face and get godly counsel. Most importantly, Girls Ministries Girls Clubs show each girl that God loves her and wants a relationship with her.

Start Up Essentials
- Recruit and Train
started with the Leader Training Guide.
Everything you need to know is in here—details on club levels, tips for
being an effective leader, the steps for building a program, and much
more. This all-in-one training and reference book is also the tool
you’ll use to train leaders. When you’re recruiting leaders, put their
minds at ease by telling them you’ll provide the tools to make them
fantastic leaders. Sponsors can complete the course by correspondence
or in a group training session. Contact your district Girls Ministries director for local training information.
The foundation for Girls Clubs meetings is
the Sponsor Guides and Activity or Journal Pages for each level. The Sponsor Guide has everything a leader
needs to disciple girls through the entire year of curriculum.
Everything from lesson plans for every unit, sample activity pages,
reproducible resources, and club information.
Every girl will
need the appropriate club-level Activity Pages or Journal Pages.
Every unit has its own set of Activity Pages, and they are available
individually. That means you can pick and choose which units best fit
your girls. Activity Pages are full-color and drive home the point of
the lesson. For the older clubs, Friends and Girls Only, lessons are
taught through Journal Pages, which are
also available individually. They help girls get to the heart of how
the lesson applies to their lives. We also recommend Intro Pages for
each girl in Friends and Girls Only. These pages provide a prayer
journal, Bible reading journal, undated calendar, and address book.
- Have fun!
Gather the girls and leaders, and have a
blast getting to know each other. This program teaches solid,
Bible-grounded principles, and it also helps develop relationships
between everybody involved. Enjoy every part of the discipling process!
Before Your First
Plan the Time and Place for Meetings
Select a place for
club meetings. The best meeting place may be determinded by the time and frequency of your meetings. Find a place where girls will be comfortable, feel like they can be themselves, and is conducive to group conversation.
Decide on the time and frequency of meetings that fit your situation. Many clubs meet on family night at the church. Others meet at another designated time. Coordinate with other church ministries to determine the best time. (view format options)
Talk to church leadership about how funds are allocated and accounted. Funds may be raised in various ways, including regular
offerings from the girls, a subsidy from the church, a Women’s Ministries group, or
fundraisers. Some clubs charge membership dues. Girls should not be
excluded from attending if they cannot give. Each club is encouraged to support their district Girls
Ministries office to help with district administrative
costs (view disticts).
