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

National Director
Christa spent 16 years doing evangelism and church planting among Muslims in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and North America before returning to Canada in 2013. Christa loved being single until her late 30s and is now a wife, stepmom of three beautiful girls and is adding another "ezer" to the pack through kinship adoption. She 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 can be found in the BGC National Office in Edmonton. Contact via email.
