Resident starts online Christian Women's Ministry

Women of the Way Ministries, a non-denominational, nonprofit, Christian women's ministry, has started in Steamboat Springs. The group's goal is to serve women of all walks of life through their "real-life stories" and relational sharing. 

Founder Therese Shelesky began her work in women's ministry in 2003 through Small Group Leadership, Prayer Team Leadership and Bible Study Facilitating.

WoTWM consists of writers from various parts of the United States who are willing to share their life stories and personal experiences in a relational way while reaching out to women to seek Christ.

Therese personally wants to make a local impact in the Steamboat Springs area, but she hopes for WoTWM and its writers to span all borders and make an international impact.
