The four tasks of this team are to involve women and girls in: learning about missions; engaging in mission action and direct evangelism; supporting missions through giving, praying, and considering missions as a vocation; and learning about the work of the denomination. The team also provides assistance to local churches to foster the development of other women-oriented ministries.
