What is Cherish?
Cherish is the ladies ministry of Doxa Deo Family of Churches and we invite you to become part of this amazing family of Gods gorgeous girls.
The Founding Scripture of Cherish ladies ministry is from the book of Deuteronomy:
“God chose you out of all the people on Earth as His cherished personal treasure.”
Who is Cherish for?
“We are a Women’s Ministry with a mission from God and are passionate to Nurture, Love and Inspire women to become and live abundantly in all God has created and designed them to be as women.”
– Cheray Dekas, Cherish Ministry Global
Cherish is for all women who long to discover their fun, loving, adventurous, powerful and beautiful queens statuses in Christ. In essence, Cherish extends who we are as City Changers.
“You’ll be known as those who can fix anything, restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate, make the community liveable again.” Isaiah 58
What is our desire as a Ministry?
In all that Cherish presents we desire that each woman will:
– discover how cherished and loved she is.
– be nurtured and equipped with the knowledge of Truth to grow spiritually and emotionally.
– be inspired to live and establish Gods Kingdom in every sphere of her life.
– take what she receives and reach out to the uncherished of our society.
– experience a fabulous time of fun, laughter and friendship with groups of girl friends.
What is Cherish Passionate about?
We are passionate about impacting lives of women who can further their purpose and calling to our City, through Campus life.
We really trusting that God will use this ministry to bless and impact our City, beyond the boundaries of our individual lives. There are 4 key areas in which we focus our energy as a ministry:
– Corporate Events
– Going Deeper
– Creative Expression
– Word Impartation
The Cherish Calendar has a cyclical feel. There are key Corporate Events which occur at specific annual occasions. These include the Cherish Ladies Conference, Teas and Dinners.
Going Deeper with Cherish ministry demands a certain level of commitment to group programmes and people. These communities of grace are safe places to grow, share and develop one another. One of the highest impacting ministries across the whole Doxa Deo Global family is the Cherish Mentorship Program, however there are a variety of other ways to engage from City Changer Life Groups (weekly) and Cherish Mums (Monthly) to 4×40 groups (Seasonal).
A relatively new engagement in the Cherish Ministry are the opportunities for Creative Expression. Encorporated into every individual is the ability to be creative. You could get involved alongside other Ladies of varying skill level through the ART of Worship course, run by professional artist Susan Bence, or through Craft events that occur during the calendar year.
Word importation is core to the Cherish Ladies Ministry across the board, yet there is an element to the program specifically geared around Word Impartation, taking place every autumn in a relaxed setting involving both gathered and group experience.
How to get involved?
