New Women’s Ministry Kicks Off

GRAPEVINE, Texas – Senior Hannah Holt wanted Faith students to become more familiar with their Bibles, so she started 31, a new women’s ministry at Faith, to remedy the problem she saw. “Last year, in March, I stayed after class and talked to Mr. Browning, and I was upset because he asked questions to test our Bible knowledge in class, and no one knew the answers,” Holt said.

After talking with Mr. Jon Brooks, Dr. Jeff Potts, and Dr. Ed Smith, Holt had a plan for her vision of 31. “I went to Mr. Brooks and asked, ‘What would a women’s ministry look like at Faith?

She consulted with multiple female teachers on what would be the best way to engage with the students. (more…)
