Who We Are and What We Believe:
Learn more about Daughters of Zions history and what we believe.

The Daughters of Zion Women's Ministries had its inception in May of 1997. During that time we were referred to simply as Women's Bible Study Group. The name was changed to Daughters of Zion Women's Ministries in 1999.

We are an inter-denominational, multi-cultural group of women, who share a love for Jesus. We exist to equip and empower women to enhance the lives of others, through Christ-centered bible studies. This enables women to discover and grow in their God-given gifts for ministry in every area of their lives. This is accomplished through weekly bible studies, leadership seminars, retreats, and luncheons. A vital part of our ministry is intercessory prayer. The Daughters of Zion Women's Ministries is based on Titus 2:3-5, which admonishes older women to instruct younger women.

Shirley Freeman is the Founder and Bible study leader for the Daughters of Zion. She is an ordained minister on staff at New Providence Baptist Church in San Francisco, under the leadership of Pastor Michael Gilmore.
