In 1991, Dunwoody United Methodist Sr. Pastor, Wiley Stephens, approached long time members Becky Wright and Nancy Meeker with a request that they begin a prayer ministry within the church. Becky and Nancy agreed and realized there was need for such a class in which to teach women how to pray. Nancy wrote a study on prayer and taught for several years.
The ladies saw that there was a great hunger among the women of Dunwoody UMC for focused Bible Studies. A task force comprised of 15 women formed to evaluate the needs followed, and Women of the Word was born. As Women of the Word, we are committed to teaching the word of God to the ladies of Dunwoody United Methodist Church.
Since the conception of WOW 10 years ago, God has richly blessed the women of Dunwoody UMC and our community at large with growth, not only in Bible Studies but also through special events and fellowship.
Women of the Word are a community of women who desire to learn how to apply the Bible with relevancy in today's world and to mature in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will continue to grow this ministry and bless those who come to be a part of it.
