Women of Hope, the Women's Ministry of Pacific Hope Church, is part of the entire discipleship ministry of Pacific Hope Church. Under the direction and oversight of the Elders, Women of Hope is led by a team of women who meet regularly for the sake of accountability, leadership development, prayer, and planning. We exist to encourage and equip women to think and live according to the Word of God. Our desire is that every woman would know Christ personally and fulfill the Lord's requirement “to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God” (Micah 6:8).
Women's Tuesday Night Study
1 Peter - A Living Hope in Christ
A Bible Study by Jen Wilkin
Join us for this nine-session study every other Tuesday at 7:00 pm, beginning January 8, 2019. Books are available at the Information Booth for $16.00 (see reading schedule below).
Each study will include:
- Personal study between group sessions (8 sessions with homework);
- Verse-by-verse approach and group discussion;
- Jen Wilkin’s teaching videos (viewed as a group) that build upon
and tie together the personal study.
Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading.
In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ
challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance.
He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes
believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what
it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of
humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as
participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week.
Teaching videos are key to the understanding of this study.

Foundations of Hope
Based on the mandate found in Titus 2, Women of Hope launched a mentoring ministry in January 2015. The aim of this ministry is to equip women in these four foundational areas:
- Walk: Personal Bible study and prayer
- Home: Being busy at home as a single, wife and/or mom
- Doctrine: Spiritual life and biblical womanhood
- Fellowship: Hospitality and mentoring other women.
Through monthly small group meetings, mentors help women establish relationships with other women, learn to think Biblically, apply Biblical principles to relationships and circumstances, grow in godliness, and grow in their love for and service to the church.
Because these groups involve progressive teaching and mentoring, sign-ups are limited to the beginning of each two-year cycle. We currently have no start date scheduled for 2019, but if you are interested in the next session, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
