Ladies Fellowship

The Tema Joint Church Ladies Fellowship was formed in the year 1994, two years after the establishment of the Church, by a group of dedicated spirit-filled ladies who saw the need for all ladies in the Church to come together to study the Word of God, foster unity and love among themselves and support the work of the Church. It was inaugurated on Sunday, 13th November,1994 as the TJC Ladies Fraternity with its Salutation – ‘Fraternity, One Love’.
