A CLOSER LOOK
HOW WE BEGAN
For more than half a century, lives have been changed by the Lord Jesus Christ through a unique organization known as Stonecroft Ministries. It began in the late 1930's when Mrs. Helen Duff Baugh, a homemaker in San Jose, California, established 24 prayer groups to pray for the spiritual needs of our nation. They envisioned God providing a way through which many people could realize their need for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The result was Christian Business Women's Council - a dinner program designed to reach businesswomen with the gospel message.
Ten years later, God called Miss Mary E. Clark, a former businesswoman and missionary in New England to join Mrs. Baugh. Together they led this organization through unprecedented periods of growth and development.
In l966 the international outreach was expanded into both Canada and Korea. At this time Stonecroft Ministries and Christian Women's Clubs can be found in over 80 countries around the world.
WHO WE ARE
What began with one woman's commitment to prayer has grown into an international outreach impacting 6 continents of the world. Through the years, the ministry has remained faithful to the Bible as the foundation of truth, to prayerful dependence upon God, and to working in harmony with local churches.
Stonecroft Ministries/Christian Women's Connection is an interdenominational, evangelistic outreach, for men and women that is carried forward by committed lay people as well as full-time missionary staff.
Our mission is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and make Him known by presenting the biblical message of salvation.
