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
Fall / Winter, 2018
Our current study is Hagar: Rediscovering the God Who Sees Me by Shadia Hrichi.
close relationship with God - no matter the pain or suffering in your life.
Witness the depths of God's compassion through the eyes of Hagar, a runaway
slave who meets the living God in a desert of despair, where she gives Him the
name El Roi, "The God Who Sees Me." A
largely forgotten Old Testament character, Hagar is actually one of only a few
people who have ever spoken directly with the LORD.
Through this study, you will find that when you surrender your life into God's hands, your trials and triumphs serve a magnificent purpose: to draw you into the arms of the faithful God who sees you."

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.
A new Foundations of Hope session started in January 2017. Because these groups involve progressive teaching and mentoring, sign-ups are limited to the beginning of each two-year cycle.
