MZBC Women's Ministry Mission

The Women's Ministry of Mount Zion seeks to minister to, serve, disciple, teach, connect, and love on women of all ages! Our purpose is for women to be firmly established in the knowledge of God and live out a life of faith - restored to remain strong, firm, and steadfast throughout every season of life! 

"And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered

a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast."

1 Peter 5:10
