Designs for living ministries is a community of women that desire to grow in faith and knowledge of The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit through the Word of God and prayer. We believe the best way to achieve this is through the establishment of long term relationships within a body of disciples gathering in worship and fellowship. We have designed a spiritual platform that includes a method for studying the Bible, with in-person local community groups and social media support, to help us discover our identity in Christ and live out our designed purpose for His glory.
