Today’s Christian Girl provides a network for girls across the nation and around the world in a way like never before in our interest group.


Mission Statement:

Helping today’s girl become tomorrow’s Christian woman: a balance of mental, physical, spiritual, and social graces.


A club-type program designed to help girls grow according to Luke 2:52, “and Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and man.” This passage shows that Jesus, as our example, was a perfectly balanced person. He grew in wisdom; that is mentally, In stature; physically, In favor with God; spiritually, And favor with man; socially.



David prayed in Psalm 144:3, “That our daughters may be as cornerstones, polished after the similitude of a palace.” Our passion is to teach and train young ladies in basic life principles while inspiring them to achieve their highest potential through Christ; that through the method of mentoring we may “polish” them to become as cornerstones that are purposeful, and to become as beautiful in life and spirit as a “palace”.


Each group may choose which material to use and at what pace to advance. We will assist with suggested meeting formats and program ideas for age groups 10-18.

Today’s Christian Girl: 2006, Gwyn Oakes felt a burden for an international teaching and mentoring program for young girls. With the help of many friends the vision evolved. The need was presented to the national ladies committee and the work began. Leah Seagraves served as the first director followed by Debbie Sanders. The program has many success stories and is growing steadily.
