Looking Through the Rear-view Mirror: How Can you Know Where You are Going if You Don’t Know Where You Have Been?

Believing that present and future generations need to know what God has been doing in the PCA’s ministry to women, this edition of the PCA’s Women’s Ministry Resource Quarterly introduces a new look and an opportunity to share more information by using the web.
