Birth of a women's ministry
Gritty Women is an acronym for GRIT “G- God’s R- Resolute Women I- in Intense T- Times”.
Gritty Women of God was birthed in 1997. Without a clear sense of direction, Pastor Sheila began Gritty Women of God (GWOG) with a prayer meeting, using her gifts of prayer and intercession. In this meeting, as the women prayed, the power of God came into the room. Although Pastor Sheila had no plans to begin a Women’s Ministry, God, however, had other plans and placed it in Pastor Sheila’s heart to have a women’s conference. In this first conference, there were about 180 women registered, however, over 400 women attended. The passion of these women along with the power of God released during that conference confirmed the need for a Women’s Ministry, thus Gritty Women of God was birthed.
God began to speak to Pastor Sheila about His broken women and how He was going to deliver them from their past abuse and hurt. The revelation that women were the most oppressed people group on the earth gave her the courage to go forth with a new anointing to see women set free! God began to speak to her concerning the prophetic word in Psalms 68:11 that He would give a shout and the women would come forth and when this happened, kings of enemies would flee!! Strongholds over regions would be broken as His women that have been delivered gather together for the purpose of seeing other women set free! Through their testimonies, the anointing would be released and wherever Resolute Women went they would turn the world upside down! (Resolute means determined, faithful, and loyal).
Currently, Gritty Women of God meetings are being held in other regions throughout the United States and abroad. One of the emphases now of Gritty Women of God is Human Trafficking. We are now linking arms with organized groups and will assist them with the goal to get them to a safe environment and share the gospel of Jesus Christ!!!!!!
In addition to being an international women’s ministry, Gritty Women of God has expanded to include training and equipping young women according to Titus 3. Please visit GGWM for more details.
The Lord gives the word of power; the women who bear and publish the news are a great host.
The kings of the enemies' armies, they flee, they flee! She who tarries at home divides the spoil left behind
