A Time to Serve
The 2013–2015 AB Women's Ministries Theme, “A Time to Serve”, will help you understand how you have been uniquely shaped by God for the ministry to which you’ve been called, and sent out to the world.
“to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ.”
∼ Ephesians 4:12-13 NRSV

Other studies show that most of these children will continue the path of being involved in the criminal justice system themselves. (read more)
