Shlo Rae Wyatt was born and raised in Wyandotte, Michigan where she lived with her parents, Jim and Mary Wyatt and one brother Mark. Shlo has spent her life in church with her family. She was saved as a young 7 year old girl in Monroe, MI at the Church of God of Prophecy where she later joined the church.
Shlo accepted the position of Women’s Ministries Leader where she has had a deep desire to see Women live Holy lives before a Holy God. With an important emphasis of being Proverbs 31 Women and Women of Grace. Praying for each other and helping Women to LIFT up their heads for their Redemption draws nigh.
Women’s Ministry centers on meeting the spiritual needs of Christian women and helping them to grow in their faith in Jesus Christ. The word ministry comes from the Greek word ‘diakoneo’ literally meaning “to serve.” Women’s Ministry exists to serve women and to teach women how to minister to others. It is action based and focuses on living a Godly life with guidance from the Bible. Our primary goal is to assemble the women of the church to share time growing in their spiritual knowledge and love of God.
Women’s ministry dates back to Biblical times where women, such as Sarah, Deborah, Ruth, Mary, and Martha, had an influence on the development of the early church. A prominent scripture which Christians use as a Biblical precedent as to the purpose of women’s ministry is Titus 2:3-5 (KJV) 3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
Women’s ministry took root in that aspect of scripture and has grown to feed women spiritually all over the world. As children of God, we are to reflect His character. Yet how good of a job are we doing? Compare your heart with His and seek after holiness. Families are such a gift from the Lord, and we are all in need of much wisdom for navigating these precious, and sometimes trying, relationships. Whether you are single or married, with or without children, you are no doubt in need of some guidance and wisdom.
In the Spring of 2012 Shlo was asked to take a position with the State of Tennessee CoGoP Women’s Ministries as a Regional Coordinator for the Grace Network. Shlo is looking forward to continuing her work in the ministry that God has placed in her and reaching as many people as she can for Christ.
