Mangrove Ministries uses writing, teaching and leadership to reach into communities of faith to encourage women to have a more authentic and intimate Christian faith walk.
Mangrove Ministries, founded on the Scripture from Jeremiah 17:7-8, wants to demonstrate that putting trust in the Lord and growing deep spiritual roots in Christ nourishes life . . . like a tree planted by the water.
Mangroves are trees (or groups of trees) that grow by the water with a deep, complex root system that continuously bear fruit. It is a complete community within itself and gives birth to new communities.
Writing (to express Scriptural understanding) . . . planted by the water

Teaching (to grow a deeper intimacy with Christ) . . . roots by the stream
- II. To teach Scriptural truths, using a variety of formats, to strengthen and encourage communities of women to seek a deeper intimacy with Christ
Leadership (to develop ministries to glorify God) . . . to bear fruit

By the river on its bank, on one side and on the other, will grow all kinds of trees . . . because their water flows from the Sanctuary, and their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing. – Ezekiel 47:12 NASB
