Cherish marked the birth of a sisterhood that literally grew from baby shoes to a strong and vibrant women’s ministry.
Kick off your shoes and stroll with us down Memory Lane…
Each Doxa Deo campus had its own women’s ministry with its own beautiful, unique name. Although we regularly shared our ideas in order to remain relevant, a deep desire grew to collectively be instrumental in transforming the lives of the women in our cities.
We started dreaming about a name that would represent exactly this. God gave us the Scripture in Deuteronomy 7:6(MSG) “…God, your God, chose you out of all the people on Earth for himself as a cherished, personal treasure.” Wow! In our context, this did not mean that only girls who had accepted what Christ had done for them, were cherished BUT that we had the privilege to go and cherish each and every girl in our cities because of what Christ did for each one of us! Such Unconditional Love! Such Grace!
Three key words – missional if you like – were identified to outline the heart of Cherish: Nurture, Love, Inspire.
Therefore, at Cherish all around the globe, girls are NURTURED in the Word in order to nurture others. We live lives of LOVE – the life of Christ – in that way to INSPIRE.
