Christian Education


The Christian Education Ministry of the Southwestern Diocese UCWM mission is to assist in the training, building, preparation, and development of the Christian woman to the full measure of Christ.  The Christian Education Ministry will seek to support and encourage all educational efforts of women in the church, UCWM, and the community.  We will promote educational efforts of the general church through the support of CM&I College.

How We Work:  Programs of continuing education, Bible Study, Book Study, cultivation of the arts, development of skills, and increasing awareness for personal and group development (mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually) will be the avenues of implementation used to complete our mission.

Women’s Academy

Preparing Women to do Christian Work

In the Women’s  Academy, there are suggested areas to cover with topics of interest. These topics we believe will enhance our growth in the Word and for plain living.


Women’s Academy is an initiative to address women’s needs. The Women’s Academy umbrella is designed to cover a list of  topics pertinent to women of today. We believe the topics will navigate you through intense Bible Study, prayer healing, and learning; and will fulfill the need for Christian education for women. These are the thrust of our ministry.


Our goal is prepare women to do Christian work by providing resources and information for a variety of subject for personal growth.


This may include list of books, magazine articles, training series from renounce Christian Bible teachers, which can done in a home setting and websites ,etc.
