Women United

President/Leader: Sis. Sandra Williams

Vision Statement:

Our mission is for the women of Tabernacle of Praise to grow in the Lord, to participate in the church, to experience the joy of the Lord, and then give that joy to others and watch it spread.


We Desire To Be


Women of Prayer:  Prayer makes a difference in our personal life, in the life of our family and friends, and even those we pray for but don’t know personally.  There are not many who would disagree that prayer is an important part of the leadership role at a church.  It is also an important part of the leadership role of T.O.P.’s Women’s Ministry.  Whether the prayers include personal or ministry concerns, when we pray for one another this shows our level of care for the individual or cause.  It shows that we want God to intervene in the situation by creating a greater awareness of his presence.  Taking time to pray for one another can be a powerful tool for serving God.


Women of Purpose:  It has often been said that you can lead a person only as far as you yourself have gone.  You can lead another to experience only as much of Christ as you yourself have experienced.  It is only because the great biblical leaders were themselves profound and deeply committed people, in love with God and with God’s call upon their lives, that they could become one who profoundly formed, taught, and influenced others.  What made these biblical leaders so great was their trust in God’s call to the mission and ministry.  As T.O.P. Women, we are deeply committed people in love with God and with God’s call on us to provide the very best for women and girls in our church.  We want to work hard to follow God’s call upon our lives and we trust God’s will to be done in all our endeavors.


Women of Passion:  Jesus was a man of passion, deeply convicted about the mission he was to do.  His passion was evident in the anger and power he showed.  He confronted religious leaders (the priests, Pharisees and Sadducees), political leaders (Herod, Pilate), economic leaders (the priests and Sadducees), and even his own disciples.  He was not afraid to make others uncomfortable and he was not one to duck an issue.  As T. O. P. Women, we are women of passion.  We care deeply about women and girls in all situations.  We are deeply convicted that our vision and what we are seeking to bring about in our women’s ministries is from God.  Our vision is clear – we are clear about who we are and what we must do.
