What does a T2Woman do?

The primary focus is on one-to-one ministry (reading the Bible with one other woman) in a variety of contexts with the intention being that you will have 4 women that you are ‘pastorally responsible’ for, for each 6-8 hours of ministry that you commit to. Of these 4 women: one will be a non Christian […]

Why two years?

It is recommended that someone undertake T2Women for two years to allow the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of first year and to grow in confidence by doing everything again in second year. The option is there to finish at the end of first year, but the standard program is two years.

Why a minimum of six hours?

To make the T2Women training worthwhile for both the trainer’s time and the T2Woman’s experience, a minimum of six hours per week would be required. This allows for 2 x 1.5 hour meetings for one-to-one relationships (‘grow’ and ‘serve’), plus extra time for meeting with the other two women.

Couldn’t I just meet with one woman to read the Bible?

That would be fantastic! But it wouldn’t be T2Women. We would love to see every person at church meeting up with one other person to read the Bible. What makes T2Women different is taking the opportunity to meet with a few women at different stages of Christian maturity. The T2Women trainer will be encouraging their […]

Why does T2Women focus on one-to-one ministry?

What happens after the two years?

Ideally we would love for trained T2Women to keep meeting one-to-one with women and continue ministering in their churches. Where T2Women has sparked a desire for further training in a more formal capacity, options can be considered such as the ADM ministry apprenticeships with training through Mary Andrews College.

What will be covered in the training times?

Training will cover topics such as: Getting started in one to one ministry Being intentional at church Ministry to individuals The Bible overview Personal evangelism Understanding particular books of the Bible During group training times there should also be opportunities to share and pray together about how you are going on T2Women.

What will a trainer and T2Woman do during their one-to-one meetings?

We will be producing a booklet with the text of Titus for the trainer and T2Woman to work through together over their meeting times. These meetings will also be an opportunity for the T2Woman to ask for advice regarding pastoral concerns, biblical content or their own personal growth. The trainer and T2Woman would also pray […]

What is the expected time commitment for T2Women?

We want to encourage each woman to set aside: A minimum of six hours per week 4 regional training meetings per year 8 one to one meetings with a trainer per year (face to face or via skype) This commitment would be for an initial one year period, with the general expectation of continuing onto […]
