New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 29, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeitung Q Friday Movei nber o 9A Christian women try to duplicate success of Promise Keepers By KAREN TESTA Associated Press Writer LAKE OZARK Mo AP Hoping to emulate the success of the Promise Keepers a coalition of Christian women has begun to carve a path parallel to the one begun in 1990 by their male counterparts Known as the Praise Keepers these women are dedicated to similar ideals as the Promise Keepers using a commitment to God to restore men and women to their traditional family responsibilities The idea to form a sort of female counterpart to the mens group came to Anna Adler about a year ago She said she saw her husband return on fire from a Promise Keeper convention in Dallas It was awesome what Gods doing with recalled Mrs Adler 56 of Eldon I said Wouldnt it be awesome if there was something like this for women At the first 17 women gathered in Barnett a town of about 250 in central Missouri Since then the ministry has found a headquarters in nearby Eldon membership r has grown to more than 100 and its first convention drew nearly 300 to Lake Ozark on Nov 15 Those numbers certainly dont compare to the estimated men who will attend Promise Keeper conventions this year But when that Denverbased group was formed six years ago by former Colorado football coach Bill McCartney its first convention drew only 72 men We know that Promise Keepers has really said Donna Henley 58 of Eldon cofounder of Praise Keepers Womens ministries are always bigger than the men This will be bigger than the The two women were quick to note that they are not trying to mimic or compete with the Promise Keepers Their mission is to help women serve each other through the power 4of prayer They discuss topics pertinent to women such as deliverance how to pray weight control and how to avoid having an affair Similar to the Promise Keepers the Praise Keepers ask their members to make seven commitments the first is to God the It was awesome what Gods doing with men I said Wouldnt it be awosomo if thoro was something like this for women Anna Adler Organizer for Praise Keepers second to their husbands The role of women is crucial in restoring strong families said Barbara Holly 62 a minister in Pineville and the keynote speaker at the Praise Keeper convention We have a very big role in our Mrs Holly said If the woman is under the authority of their husband and I dont mean as a then oar role is to be the homemaker to be the prayer warrior to stand by our The Praise Keepers acknowledge their ministry may not be popular with some women who believe it saps independence or is not realistic for those who cannot be full time homemakers When asked if Praise Keepers would endorse women quitting their careers to stay at home Mrs Henley said women should obey the requests of the Holy Spirit Mrs Holly said no woman should become a Praise Keeper if her husband tells her not to If a husband forbids then a woman should sit back and pray and be she said God says obedience is better than Mrs Henley and Mrs Adler are writing a daily devotional and another book about Praise Keepers and they travel to churches of all Christian denominations to speak about establishing chapters Already other women are taking the ministry to Texas California Michigan and New York Mrs Adler said Finances have been tight but not a problem member Laurie Bennett said as she folded Praise Keeper Tshirts for sale at the convention Women were asked for a donation to attend the conference Its mainly been surprises by God that help us to keep Mrs Bennett said I dont think we pray for money We pray for guidance and the money just happens to be The women who attended the convention ranged in age from preteen to elderly and were dressed in everything from jeans and T shirts to heels and sequins Another larger convention is planned for Springfield in February Because the womens version of the ministry is so new many of those who attended the convention were there on a fact finding mission Shirley Randtke 70 of Springfield said she was interested because she believed iromise Keepers to be a godsend for men She knew little about Praise Keepers before making the 100mile drive to Lake Ozark Its kind of like the now said the retired nurse who is studying in the Assemblies of God seminary Its what Gods doing in 1996 and I want to be part of Advertise on our church page Call 6259144 FERGUSON HERMES INSURANCE AGENCY SINCE 1032 6254500 PORTER
