MOTTO : FAMILY EXCELLENCE
FRUITFUL WOMEN (FW)
“Fruitful Women” is a new organization that evolved in June 2004 in Kumasi, Ghana, from the ministry of Rev. Dr. Samuel Kisseadoo. During his mission trips to Ghana, he organizes annual town meetings on general family life, and town meetings for single men or single women, and for couples. In addition to these he began organizing a Women’s Conference in 2002 for the public in Accra (Capital of Ghana) and Kumasi (second largest city of Ghana) that focused on general needs of all females. These meetings are always well attended by women from far and near. In Kumasi for example, women attended from as far as Offinso, Effiduasi, Mampong, and Konongo (32 miles away).
Dr. Kisseadoo realized that it would be worthwhile to find leaders specifically for this conference and get it better organized, expand it to benefit more women, formulate good follow-up plans, and get this lucrative and productive conference properly established.
Fruitful Women (FW) should be best seen and described as a timely synergistic Christian women’s organization with gifted, spiritual, and dedicated women imbued with innovative and novel ideas that are fueled by godly passion. Their efforts are in response to a new millennium urgent need and a call to meticulously attend to the desperate and crying needs of females in our generation, using strategies that are rooted in God’s grace and God’s word, for godly, healthy, practical, and productive results in the lifestyles of ladies and girls.
The primary aims and objectives of Fruitful Women are:
1) Form a National Executive Committee to assist Dr. and Mrs. Kisseadoo in planning and organizing the Ghana Annual Women’s Conference, that aims at promoting Marriage, Home, and Family Life excellence among females of all ages.
2) Reach out to women and girls in Ghana, and teach them the basic godly, holy, and wise principles that form the foundation of a responsible and fruitful life to the glory of God.
4) Encourage females to educate themselves, discover and develop their talents and gifts, acquire fitting careers, engage in productive service, and grow to maturity in order to achieve their full potential for feminine excellence in our present society.
5) Promote healthy relationships and friendship among single as well as married ladies, and with gentlemen.
6) Promote social and sexual soundness, as well as good physical health habits for females in our society.
7) Teach women and girls the right balance between our cultural and traditional practices, in comparison with Biblical principles and Christian practices.
7) Train both young and older women to develop greater faith, courage, and confidence in the face of changing circumstances of life, and learn how to deal effectively with fundamental or exclusive female problems in and outside of marriage.
8) Encourage deeper fellowship and sharing of resources among women and girls.
9) Discuss and explore new opportunities for the development of women in our society, and promote communal support for female needs.
10) Teach and encourage females to become more committed, enthusiastic, and productively responsible church members.
The selected women leaders and Rev. Dr. Kisseadoo met officially in Kumasi on 28th June, 2004 in the conference room of Maranatha Evangelistic Ministry, and the name “Fruitful Women” was unanimously adopted as the official name of the movement. They agreed to hold two major Women’s Public Seminars in a year, and assist Dr. Kisseadoo to organize the Annual Women’s Conference that he conducts for the public. These activities will be interspersed with follow-up initiatives and regular counseling in collaboration with local church counselors and resource personnel of Fruitful Ministries.
The 5 primary target groups proposed and agreed on for the reach-out efforts of Fruitful Women are:
1) Pre-teen girls.
Two Sub-Committees will be formed under the FW Executive. These are:
1) Prayer and Counseling Committee --- responsible for all prayer and counseling affairs of FW.
2) Welfare and Finance Committee ---- responsible for all welfare needs of FW and those ministered to, and financial assistance to the Treasurer and the executive in fund raising efforts, and financial matters pertaining to all programs and activities of FW.
These committees will assist the FW executive in the pursuance of their objectives, execution of their programs, and fulfillment of their goals.
