GEMS Mission Statement
Daughters of Zion Girl Empowerment Ministry (GEMS) is committed to serving God by discipling and empowering girls so that they may be spiritually transformed into the young women God has created them to be. Using biblical principles, we offer relevant and practical applications in leading an abundant life in Christ. God cuts and polishes the precious GEMS with His salvation but it is up to us to care for them in the proper way so that their luster and brilliance will shine through for Him! God has a plan and a purpose for each of His daughters, plans to prosper them and plans to give them a hope and a future…we desire to help them discover this plan.
The foundational scripture for the ministry is Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do”.
