Meet Jodie and Donna. Friends, ministry partners and founders of Faithfully Following Ministries. Brought together first to establish an exercise ministry affectionately known as Faithfully Fit but God had so much more in store.
After prayerfully following His lead, this duo began speaking and singing together feeling the urgent call to minister to women in their own “backyard”. Since that time, they daily strive to follow wherever the Lord leads. Coffehouses, yes. Gym floors, yes. Other churches, yes. Backyards, yes! Wherever the doors open they walk forward leading in-depth group Bible studies, online Bible studies, and home “Pop-Up” Bible studies. Driven by their passion to draw themselves closer in their personal relationship with Christ verse by verse they are ready to teach women around the world the joy of doing the same!
So what is our story? Our story is Jesus. His life on earth, His death on a cross, and His resurrection. His salvation, His love and His grace that is freely given in order to bring joy to us even in times when joy and pain collide. For He has called us to speak and sing His name – all for His glory!
“If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:11”
