Women on the Move 4 Christ Ministries was established in October 2008 by Nerina Smith, a business woman from Cape Town, who is also involved in the hospitality industry.
In 1997 the Lord gave her a prophecy that He is going to use her in a Women’s Ministry, ministering to women all over South Africa and abroad.
From 2006 to 2008 Nerina served as Vice-President of King’s Daughters of Excellence, together with Past. Rina Kinnear. Her passion is to talk to women about their self-image, how to set goals and fulfill their dreams, how to grow spiritually as a woman of God, hospitality and inner/outer beauty
Nerina established Women on the Move Ministries, after attending women’s conferences in Mexico and Texas. Whilst there, God gave word to her from Mat. 28:19,20 “go back and teach the women of SA the values as I have taught you. Two weeks later, back in SA, this word was confirmed. God also said: You’re going to run like a lion with your ministry.
The ministry ‘moves’ all over South Africa and other countries in Africa.
The main purpose is to be involved in underprivileged areas, where we mentor and provide help to the community through various projects.
