Women's Ministry - Dedra
Dear Ladies of FBCG,

It is my great privilege to serve you as the Women's Ministry Coordinator.  I am very excited to stand beside you in ministry.  God has burdened me with a deep passion for His Word and for women.  Over the last few years, God has been patiently instructing me to view each of His children as His treasure.  When my children were small, I would hide "treasure" in our sandbox because it brought them such great joy in finding it.  Truly, I did it because I received even greater joy in watching the discovery.

You, my friend, have a treasure within you.  2 Corinthians 4:7 tells us "We have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves."

Powerfully working in me is God’s desire that every woman would realize this treasure that gives her the capacity to greatly impact her circle of influence.  Especially, to realize that she has been called to specific works that God has planned for her and no one else.  I want to encourage you to join me in this beautiful, sometimes painful, but always rewarding journey to discover, live out, and capture that which God has created you to accomplish.  Be looking for future information on the 2014 plans for our Women's Ministry.

With great love,

Dedra Hogue

American life can be excessive, to say the least. That’s what Jen Hatmaker had to admit after taking in hurricane victims who commented on the extravagance of her family’s upper middle class home. She once considered herself unmotivated by the lure of prosperity, but upon being called “rich” by an undeniably poor child, evidence to the contrary mounted, and a social experiment turned spiritual was born.
