Ways to Give

Thank You for Supporting the Drawing Near to God Ministry!

The Drawing Near to God ministry is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization that supports the spiritual and emotional needs of women by empowering them to shed the “clutter” in their lives and find space for God. This ministry touches the lives of over a thousand women, and their families, each year through Bible study, mission work, programs, online streaming, conferences and Joanne Ellison’s local and national speaking engagements.
