Gather & Grow FAQ
How do I promote Gather & Grow in my area?
Personal phone calls and meeting one-on-one with women is the best way to encourage membership to your Gather & Grow group. Sharing individually how the ministries of Proverbs 31 Ministries (i.e. Encouragement for Today daily devotions, She Speaks conference and P31 Woman magazine) has meant to you is great promotion. You can also print the promotional flyer and display them in your church, local schools, businesses, and neighborhoods. Printable flyers are in the form section of this blog.

Does size of the group matter?
When two or more are gathered, you have a group. When forming your group, size does not matter. Pray, asking God to lead the right people to your group. He will participate in any group where He is invited, no matter what the size.

Who do I contact if I do not receive my magazine?
Magazine subscriptions typically take six weeks to be processed and received. If for any reason you have not received your first copy of P31 Woman within six weeks of your paid membership, email Wendy Pope.

How do I order resources?
We suggest group leaders submit one order form for the entire group order. You can place orders on our web site by clicking here. The orders will be shipped to the group leader and she will distribute them to the members. One large order saves shipping expenses and everyone will get their resource at the same time. Orders can take up to three to four weeks unless UPS shipping is requested.

Who do I contact if I do not receive my resource in a timely manner?

Why does every member have to pay the membership fee?
The membership fee covers so many things; leadership training, materials like this blog, your first resource, the magazine subscription, staff time, and online community membership just to name a few. Proverbs 31 Ministries is a non-profit organization and a small portion of the membership fee helps financially support the continuation of the ministry. Members who do not pay the annual membership fee will not be eligible to receive the benefits that come with being a Gather & Grow member.
