How Do We Do This?

Relevant Training – We provide everything necessary to launch a brand new Girls Ministry club in your church. And we are constantly offering fresh and relevant resources for taking existing clubs to the next level.

Girls will love this camp because it designed to meet their unique needs, and it will further enhance the impact of Girls Ministries in your local church.

Chartering

Charter Renewals

    Thank you very much for your faithful support of Girls Ministries and chartering again this year. We are blessed to work alongside your church leadership providing resources, training and activities that will enhance ministry to girls and their families.

          Our primary focus is to lead girls to Jesus Christ and to disciple them. Equipping the girls to live in this culture is vital. As you know we develop the girls spiritually and mentally by providing encouragement, support and accountability through a Christian mentoring relationship. Our small group approach to ministry provides the girls with an environment to disciple and develops their gifts and abilities. We also acquaint them with the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.

ANCHORED, is our annual theme for 2017-2018.  Our scripture verse is:

Hebrews 6:19 “We have this hope as an ANCHOR for the soul, firm and secure.” I’m excited for this theme because it is Christ who is the Anchor of our life, no matter what trials we face or what storms come along, we can stand firm and secure in the promises of God."

          Your chartering funds assist the SoCal Girls Ministries Office with administrative cost and related expenses from our Network GM Office. A benefit for chartering is that you will be paying a lower fee for our events: GM camps, Teen Girls Retreats and Leaders Retreat. Non-chartered churches will have a higher fee for each event.

          Our Network Office will keep our website (girls.socalnetwork.org) current with the necessary information to assist you. You will find our GM Leadership contact information, the 2018 calendar, and information on our annual missionary project: Coin for Kids and information about our events including documents under “Downloads” for your convenience.

          Remember we are available to help you Reach your church, Inspire your leaders and Empower your volunteers. We are ready to resource you!

         Thank you for your partnership with SoCal Girls Ministries. We are a strong community that ministers and disciples girls and blesses their families. We are reaching her heart... her world... His purpose.

 Celebrating God together,

Beth Console
Girls Ministry Team Leader

Instructions for compiling the Quarterly Report/Check-up Time

(The Quarterly Report is an account of Girls Ministries giving from which district and national statistics are computed for permanent records.)

What to Report

The Quarterly Report shows all cash offerings and the actual money spent on merchandise purchased for projects by the local club during the three month periods.

How to Report

CASH GIVEN COLUMN: Enter the amount of actual cash given (honorariums and other offerings) to a missionary, speaker, institution, district tithe, or project in the space opposite the proper category (i.e., World Missions, Benevolences, So Cal Network, Local, etc.).

CASH SPENT COLUMN: Report actual money spent for gifts, supplies for making other items, literature distribution, postage and shipping, etc.  Base value of handmade items upon the actual cost of materials used - not on the retail value of the finished product.  The Cash Spent Report is recognized in lieu of actual money placed in the offering; therefore, it must show only cash spent, not cash value.  No value is to be reported on used items.

LOCAL CATEGORY: In this space report the following ministries:

    • Approved projects for the local church, parsonage, and pastor’s family.
    • Cost of literature and Bibles distributed locally.
    • Community benevolence includes food for the needy, food for bereaved families, and emergency assistance, such as family whose home has burned, etc.  Do not report food for local church or sectional fellowship meetings, or wedding or baby shower gifts for persons within the church.

World Ministries Credit
The General Council of the Assemblies of God has a system of recognition for local churches and district for World Ministries giving.  Giving by Girls Ministries leaders and girls (both cash given and cash spent) is included in the total church and district giving.  Consistent reporting is necessary to insure proper credit being given to both church and the SoCal Network.

2017 Coins for Kids Project - Caring For Baneasa

Imagine if you were all alone, with no home and no family to take care of you. Kids your age in Baneasa have had no place to go...until now. With Coins For Kids, we can help missionaries build a center where every kid can learn about Jesus and have someone who cares about them.

Through our project Caring for Baneasa, we're raising money so a new center can teach kids about Jesus, provide hot meals, school supplies, health classes, and even a greenhouse to grow veggies. With just your spare change, you can help kids just like you learn to read, grow strong, and have a chance to play on a playground for the first time in their lives!

2016 Coins for Kids giving:  $6,496.74
2017 Coins for Kids giving:  $4,709.78  (as of 7/25/17)

Goal for 2017 is $8,120 (increase by 25%)

Top three churches:
