GEMS Girls’ Clubs is an international ministry founded on the truth that older women are called to teach younger women what is good. When you join a GEMS Club, you’re joining a global movement of women who want to help bring girls into a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ.
For over 56 years, GEMS has been inspiring and training teams of women to mentor the next generation. GEMS grows women closer to God and closer to each other as we equip them to show girls how to live God-honoring lives - acting justly, loving mercy and walking humbly with Him.
Today, more than 24,000 girls are participating in clubs across North America with over 5,300 women faithfully serving as their counselors (leaders).
