Even though we all know the important content of the Titus 2 Mandate, many women drag their feet, resisting this discipleship call upon their lives. The following is written from that perspective.
After “church shopping” for a few weeks, our family landed at Trinity PCA in Asheville, North Carolina, and chose to make it our church home. For four years we attended faithfully. For four years I knew that I should be involved in the lives of other women but for various reasons just never made it happen. And for four years I lived in isolation in this church.
Oh, I went to the retreats and I came to occasional women’s events. I even attended the women’s Sunday school classes, but I didn’t live in relationship with other women.
Then last year I came to an event to hear about Titus 2 ministries, and I knew it was time to take the next step. You see, I know the truth about women’s ministry. I know the purpose, the benefits, the joys. I’ve taught it, trained for it, lived it; and for four years I avoided it.
You may be thinking, “I’m not like her. I’m well connected in this church. I have plenty of friends. I don’t need a Titus 2 group.” Or perhaps you’re thinking, “I’ve been in her shoes. I’ve been attending for a while and haven’t really connected with the women yet. But a one year commitment is a long time.”
So why a Titus 2 ministry?
