Handmaids of the Lord


Handmaids of the Lord (HOLD) target mature women, regardless of status, or situation, from ages forty-one (41) and above. The ministry has a three-fold mission: personal transformation, evangelisation to bring her family and others especially women to a renewed life in the Lord, and wholehearted service to bring glad tidings to the poor. It provides a strong teaching track, special teachings for women in different states of life, and a leadership program to equip leaders to be more effective and better servants.

It is a Christian renewal and support ministry for mature women, such as:

  • single mothers
  • widows
  • separated / divorced women
  • single mature women
  • married women whose husbands are working in another province/country are not willing nor able to participate in any religious affiliation
  • migrant workers
  • women in prison
