Having a "Girls Ministry" provides the opportunity for your local Church to live out Titus 2:3-5, "teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God." (NIV)
Often times Churches make the mistake of 'throwing' all of the age groups and genders into a 'main' Youth Group setting and never breaking off to minister to the unique and individual needs of the girls and boys within the Youth Ministry. Sometimes this is because of staffing and / or facility needs.
