She's a JANE; You're a JANE; I'm a JANE!





A Jesus-Centered Woman! 


Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!

Luke 1:45




Thank you for your interest in becoming a  JANES Leader! Each leader brings something different to our group, enabling more women to be reached.  God has uniquely gifted you with a mix of talents and abilities that only YOU possess.  It is my prayer that the leaders of JANES would be a beautiful team of women from all walks of life, coming together to empower women to a deeper relationship with Christ and with one another. 


If God has led you to use your talents and time within our women’s ministry here at Bay Area Fellowship, I believe He will also allow you to discover a way to reach women that is unique to your giftedness and personality.  JANES was designed to be a ministry in which you can serve in a way that best fits you and your family. 


It is such a blessing to receive new leaders, and it is my promise as your ministry leader to faithfully serve you, both with my time and my prayers.


Side By Side,


DeeDee Sharon
