We see it all the time...capable and gifted women who continually undervalue their gifts and abilities. When approached to lead or try new things, women back away, thinking they do not have "what it takes." How many dreams or endeavours are unrealized because of this lack of confidence?
ZOE Discipleship courses speak truth and confidence to women about who they are and what they were created for. Our resources are collaborative in nature and Canadian in origin. We create practical resources that are used in a variety of contexts, enabling leaders to raise women for God-sized dreams.
We have watched women bloom, understanding more clearly their identity in Christ and growing in confidence to walk out in new things.
We share our resources through an online learning platform called Teachable. We admit that this isn't your regular "bible study format," but it is a format that we LOVE because of our ability to connect our students with current and relevant learning tools.

You can do it! We promise.
As the national leader of a Pentecostal family of churches, ministries and leaders I am unequivocally a fan of the ZOE Network, its leadership and the ZOE Resources that have been developed. We have chosen to honour the clear call of God that is equally on women and men and we are passionate to see resources available that will motivate and equip women to be all that God calls them to be. – David Well, General Superintendent of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada
IDENTITY offers a theological, historical and sociological foundation for women who have absorbed mixed messages about their place in God’s Church, causing them to be reluctant to step out and lead. This curriculum is unlike any other women’s small group material I’ve seen. It is stunning in its breadth, powerful in its honesty, and unlimited in its life-shaping potential. - Patti Miller, Lead pastor of Evangel Pentecostal Church in Montreal, Quebec

Once I acknowledged my God given gifts and talents, God gave me opportunities to use them. – Lorna, Australia
I have found so much freedom. I no longer fear being seen as haughty or prideful to be using my gifts fully and out loud. I used to strive to stay small and hidden with my gifts unless I was asked to use them. I am grateful for what I've learned. – Loralie P., Alberta
RELATE honestly addresses the good, bad and ugly of female relationships, and invites us to identify our own behaviour, with an eye to seeing women - all women, including ourselves - thrive. This curriculum is unlike any other women’s small group material I’ve seen. It is stunning in its breadth, powerful in its honesty, and unlimited in its life-shaping potential. - Patti Miller, Lead pastor of Evangel Pentecostal Church in Montreal, Quebec
RELATE wisely empowers us as leaders to better understand ourselves from a human perspective, and teaches us the necessary communication and conflict resolution skills we need to effectively navigate the often tenuous terrain of leading others. – Elizabeth Pierce, Clinical Social Worker and Board Chair for Gather Women
Through the RELATE course you’ll gain practical tools to help you maneuver through those sticky relational issues while growing in your personal emotional health; ‘cause you really can’t have one without the other. – Sherry Stahl, John Maxwell Certified Speaker, Trainer & Life Coach, Author and Soul H2O Blogger
One of the things our women loved about the ZOE Courses was how personalized the journey became - no other curriculum that we've experienced in our churches allowed for that. Through the ZOE journey we confronted our fears, became active seekers of truth, carefully evaluated our journey to date, and confidently allowed ourselves to embrace a new future marked by faith in God and a deeply held belief that we are each called and chosen. – Carmen K., Saskatchewan
Do you have the desire to help women around you grow in their understanding and awareness of women’s issues around the world? Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start? We can help you with that!
ZOE Activate is a resource that educates and then inspires people to become tangibly involved in these important issues. Using activities, video teaching segments and discussion, participants will begin to understand the issues and be challenged to get involved. Each ZOE Activate Session is a “stand-alone event” that will take 90 minutes to complete. You don’t need to be “the teacher.” Our “plug and play” kit makes it easy to facilitate in every setting. We are offering our very first Activate session centering on the issue of human/sex trafficking. Be Brave. Take a step and inspire those around you!
