Who we are
Our Focus for 2019 - Grow! The theme for 2019 is taken from 2 Peter 3:18 where we are encouraged to grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus.
That is our focus for 2019 as a National Department and I pray that you will take on that focus also in your personal spiritual walk.
Have you ever uttered the words, ‘Lord, give me grace’ when someone upsets you or something goes wrong? I am sure we all have! How do I grow in grace? It is in my daily living. I don’t believe it is possible to grow in grace being alone on an island!
You need others to help you to cultivate grace, to cultivate being Christ like. Humans are just that….human. We are imperfect and therefore are prone to disappoint, hurt, treat others badly, manipulate…and the list goes on…but also consider we can cultivate grace in our lives when we reach out to those less fortunate than us, to those in need, and by bearing the ‘infirmities of the weak.’
How do I grow in the knowledge of Jesus? I am sure all of us can contribute some perspective on this. Spending more time in prayer, in God’s word, allowing Him to mould us, being conscious of Him all day, every day are some of the ways we can grow.
My challenge to you ladies, is that you grow! Each one of us are at a different place in our growth in God….
What is important and imperative is that I continue to grow…whether I have been in the Lord a short time or for many years…I must continue to grow! As we grow in our personal lives, this will impact our families, our churches, our cities, our country and eventually our world!

Exalting the Lord Jesus by empowering women to discover and realise their value and worth to God, to their families and to their communities.
We believe in the power of the cross and its proclamation through an empowered army of women to help bring healing to a hurting world.
We are women that pray, disciple and worship together fulfilling our God given destiny on this earth.
Our vision is to be a spiritual, mighty force in the land of Australia and that through the power of Jesus Christ, we will inspire, instill and instruct the women of the United Pentecostal Church of Australia.
