Women’s ministry can be a powerful way to draw on the spiritual wisdom found in scripture and apply it to our daily lives. I have compiled some scriptures to guide the women’s ministry; the ladies and your women’s ministry team can find strength and insight into topics like joy, courage, and faith for our women’s ministry meetings. These scriptures are not only useful as women’s ministry scriptures but also to guide you and your team on your women’s ministry journey. Choose one to be the scripture to guide you all this year, or you can make them your scripture for the month and plan social media communications around them.
Here are some fantastic women’s ministry scriptures:
Isaiah 43:18-19 – “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?”
These verses remind us that we can never move forward if we stay stuck in the past. We have to learn to let go to make room for growth and new beginnings. Embrace this powerful reminder with your women in ministry and use it as an opportunity to discuss the power of forgiveness, courage, and renewal.
Philippians 4:4-7 – “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
This scripture is perfect for a women’s ministry theme focused on living in God’s peace. It is one of the women’s ministry scriptures that focuses on worship (i.e., rejoicing) as well as not allowing the stresses of this world to steal one’s joy.
Further, Philippians 4:4-7 is a powerful reminder to have faith in God and the power of prayer. This passage encourages us to “rejoice in the Lord always” and be gentle with others, even when it’s difficult. It also reminds us that we should never be anxious as God is near – we must present our prayers, petitions, and thanksgiving directly to Him. This scripture is a beautiful example of how prayer helps us through challenges, strengthens our faith, and invites peace.

Romans 12:2 – “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what the will of God is, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Indeed, Romans 12:2 is a great reminder to stay focused on Jesus so that we can be transformed into better versions of ourselves. This scripture encourages us to turn away from the world’s corrupting influences and instead seek out God’s will in our lives. We should continually strive to recognize His perfect plan for us and obey it in order to live an honorable life in His presence.
Romans 12:18 -“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”
The above scripture is perfect for inspiring and empowering women to live as Christian sisters or if your event is focused on fellowship.
Proverbs 31:25 – “She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.”
As long as you understand Proverbs 31:25 is aspirational, it is a great scripture for women’s ministry. It shines a light on the strength and courage of women. It serves as a reminder that despite all their struggles and fears, women can always call upon their inner power to face whatever life may throw at them. With courage and dignity, they can persevere through even the most difficult of times. This scripture encourages us to rely on God to endow us with strength when we feel weak.
Ephesians 3:20 – “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”
This passage from the letter to the Ephesians highlights the power of God and his greatness. It is comforting to know that He has given us a spirit of strength and courage so that we can achieve greater heights than the ones we originally envisioned. As women, we should never fear reaching for goals or consistently aim for less because of our beliefs or self-doubt. Knowing this scripture gives us renewed confidence and reminds us to tap into what God has already provided within each one of us. Built into His promise is the assurance that whatever we confront can be conquered with faith if it is in line with His will.
John 14:1-3 -“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.”
The women should know that God has prepared a place for them, and the best part is that they need not be stressed out. Jesus said not to worry. Images and graphics of houses could be a clever addition to your email if you choose to use this one as one of your scriptures for women’s ministry.
Jeremiah 17:7-8 – “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
For a scripture like this one as one of your scriptures for women’s ministry, you can call your event or effort a “A Woman Planted” or something similar.
Luke 10:19 – “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.”
This would be so fun to use as one of your scriptures for women’s ministry! You can use it with a women’s ministry theme called “Walking On in Jesus’ Name!” and have a graphic of colorful stilettos.
James 4:7 – “Submit yourselves therefore to God…”
This will be a perfect scripture for a women’s ministry event on obedience to God’s plan or submitting to God in life or ministry. Say you are doing a married women’s event. This scripture could be used as a preface to the “submit to your husband conversation.
Genesis 1:28 – “And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Perhaps you can use Genesis 1:28 to convey the power and dominion God has given us through Jesus Christ. Your women’s event could be called “Destined to Reign.”
2 Corinthians 10:4 – “For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.”
Your event could be “Breaking down the Strongholds,” or “Bondage-breakers,” or “Women of God Warring in the Spirit.”
Ephesians 6:13 – “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.”
This is a powerful scripture for any event or even for contemplation. It reminds us that we are empowered with the armor of God and can stand against anything! Your event could be called “Armed and Dangerous in the Spirit” or something like it.
This would be cool with a graphic of a woman with a knight’s armor. When you use scriptures for your event, pray for guidance on how to maximize them for your entire marketing strategy. If you have recruited a talented marketing mind to serve on your women’s ministry leadership team, allow her to brainstorm.
Ephesians 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”
2 Corinthians 6:4 – “but in everything commending ourselves as servants of God, in much endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses,…”
Women would glean the emphasis on tenacity, being overcomers, and even servants. This is also one of those scriptures for women’s ministry that speaks to enduring in hard times.
Hebrews 13:7 – “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.”
For this scripture, consider using it for a panel discussion with seasoned women offering spiritual advice and insights.
1 Thessalonians 5:12–13 – “We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work.”
If you host an event celebrating the volunteers or forerunners in women’s ministry, this could be a great one to use for one of your women’s ministry scriptures.
Isaiah 40:31 “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Your women’s ministry theme could be something like “Soaring Sisters” or “Sisters Renewed.”
Philippians 4:19 – “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
A terrific scripture that addresses God’s ability and willingness to provide for us and meet our needs. Your title could be “A Woman Well Kept” or something similar.
More scriptures and an opportunity to use your imagination with these scriptures for women’s ministry:
Note: Don’t forget your ministry team can also inspire some ideas. Make sure you assemble a solid women’s ministry team. Read my ideas about the roles you need on your women’s ministry leadership team here.
Isaiah 6:8 – Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
2 Timothy 2:1 – “You therefore, … be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.”
1 Timothy 4:13 -” … give attention to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation and teaching.”
Ephesians 3:14 – “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father…”
1 Timothy 3:4 – He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity
Galatians 6:9 – “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
2 Corinthians 4:1 – “Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart.
Here is the scripture in context …in case the Holy Spirit guides you in using it another way:
2 Corinthians 4:1-5 – “Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly, we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.”
I hope you found some good women’s ministry scriptures and I’ve given you some context for using them in your events. Be sure to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help you.
