A new online certification program will be launched this Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021, by the Inter-American Division’s (IAD) women’s ministries department. The Chosen and Loved certification this year is themed “Spiritual Health” and will include a nine-week series held every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. (Miami Time) for one-hour online program until April 18, church leaders said.
“As so many women are still facing the challenges of the pandemic, it is important for us to focus on strengthening their spiritual health so that they can continue to minister in their homes, and in their communities,” said Dinorah Rivera, women’s ministries director for the church in Inter-America. “As Christian women, we need to remember that the foundation of our faith must come from a wholistic spiritual health perspective.”It’s all about pursuing physical, mental and spiritual health that can transcend each women’s life personally, in leadership and in the mission to help others in the small group ministry projects in motion, she added.
The online event will feature Adventist World Church leaders, the study of the book “Mind, Character, and Personality,” by Ellen G. White—one of the pioneers of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and the Bible texts, inspiring community impact and more.
More than 80,000 women took part in the certification last year, compared to an average of 15,000 each year before the pandemic, said Rivera. Leaders expect more participation in this year’s certification program.
Women can register with their local church or regional women’s ministries leaders to take part in the study and workbook each week.
The online program will be streamed in English, Spanish and French at webcast.interamerica.org
