Girlfriends in God is a non-denominational ministry that crosses generational and racial boundaries to bring the Body of Christ together as believers. Just as God sent Ruth to Naomi and Mary to Elizabeth, God continues to use women to encourage and equip other women in their spiritual journey. We are doing life together!

Today’s Truth

Ruth said to Naomi, ‘Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God.

(Ruth 1:16-17)

Girlfriends in God Support Compassion International

Someone once said, “It takes a village” to raise a child. Here at Girlfriends in God, we have tweaked that a bit. Girlfriends in God is taking a village for Jesus! We have linked arms with Compassion International to help break the cycle of poverty for children in third-world countries…in Jesus’ name. For $38/month, you can provide emotional, social, spiritual, and physical resources to change a child’s life forever. And when you touch a child, you impact his or her entire family.
