Welcome to the online home of by design ministries, where we believe all women are uniquely designed to contribute significantly to reaching our world for Christ. Our aim is to support and equip women for ministry and leadership. We hope you use the links above to discover more about this ministry, get in touch with us, and connect with an event near you.


Here’s what people are saying about by design ministries:

by design ministries continues to support me in my growth as a Christian by iron sharpening iron!  I also feel blessed to be “filled up” by Godly women who strengthen our unity in Christ in our area. We as women ministry leaders must focus on “filling our cups” so we have enough to overflow into others. We spend time with the Lord; however, HE has created us to also need each other to build each other up.  I believe I would not have the support I need and desire without by design ministries.
