Women's Ministries

BGC Canada’s Women’s Ministries is committed to training and encouraging women to minister effectively. With training we know that women can step confidently into positions of leadership and see fruitful ministry as a result. We offer the School of Women in Ministry, resources, consultations, and mission projects for the women in our churches.

Women's Ministry Resource Team

Christa Eisbrenner


Christa grew up in a godly home on a farm outside of Leduc, AB. She felt a call to global missions as a teenager and went on to complete a Bachelor of Christian Studies from North American Baptist College and a Master of Arts in Muslim Studies from Columbia Biblical Seminary. Christa spent 16 years doing evangelism and church planting among Muslims in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and North America and returned to Canada in 2013. For the past six years she has been on leadership with Lifesprings International (who use the School of Women in Ministry materials internationally). Recently she has worked with the children of a local Arabic speaking church, facilitated English as a Second Language at her church and taught Understanding Islam at Taylor Seminary in Edmonton. Christa has a strong desire to see those who don’t know Jesus come to a saving faith in Him and for those in the church to grow in depth and compassion. Christa loved being single until her late 30s and is now a wife, stepmom of three beautiful girls and is in the process of adopting an adorable two year old girl. Christa will be working out of the BGC National Office in Edmonton on Wednesdays and can be reached at christa@bgc.ca.
