women's ministry - dioko

DIOKO is Greek for “hold on, pursue, chase after, take hold.”  Believing God pursues us in every season of our lives with purpose in mind, Milestones’ Women’s Ministry exists to equip women of all ages and at each stage of life to hold on to Jesus.  He is holding on to you!
(See Philippians 3:12) 

Our desire is to present opportunities for women to come to know Him, love Him and serve Him through the Word of God, prayer, service opportunities and fellowship.
