One of the arms of the UPCI is Ladies Ministries. Ladies Ministries is an exciting, vibrant ministry made up of women across North America. We have sister groups around the world who work faithfully and untiringly for the sake of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ in their own and other lands.
The mission of Ladies Ministries is to equip and mobilize apostolic ladies of the world for service in the kingdom of God; to maintain a spirit of cooperation with the various ministries of the organization; to preserve apostolic doctrine; and to maintain and transmit the heritage of the past to the present and future generations through teaching and by example.
In 1953, Mary Cole became the first Ladies Auxiliary president for the United Pentecostal Church Intl. In 1956 the Mothers Memorial fundraising drive began with an offering of $4,930.63. Ila Ashcraft followed as president in 1960 and served until her death in 1964. Vera Kinzie then served as president until 1994. Gwyn Oakes became president and served until 2015. Linda Gleason became president in 2016. Mothers Memorial is the name of the annual fundraising drive. Mother's Memorial supports:
