REVIEW AND AGREE BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN THE WOMENS BIBLE CAFE™

1. Purpose of Womens Bible Cafe™

The Womens Bible Cafe™ ministry is an online learning program to encourage spiritual growth and fellowship. This all begins when you prioritize God and His Word in your daily life. Our desire is to bring Bible study fellowship to those women who are unable to attend local small groups.

2. What the Womens Bible Cafe™ Does

We facilitate online Bible study discussions using the books of Biblical teachers such as Beth Moore, Kelly Minter, Jennifer Rothschild, Priscilla Shirer, Nancy Leigh DeMoss and more. Our method is similar to a church small group study or home group study. 

3. What the Womens Bible Cafe Does NOT Do

Womens Bible Cafe™ is not a counseling service and no professional advice or services are offered on this site, by email or in our Facebook groups.

PLEASE  BE AWARE THE WOMENS BIBLE CAFE™ IS NOT A PROFESSIONAL SERVICE. BY JOINING OUR PROGRAMS, YOU AGREE THAT THE WOMENS BIBLE CAFE™, ITS LEADERS, STAFF, VOLUNTEERS, AFFILIATES OR SPONSORS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SITUATION THAT OCCURS AS A RESULT OF, OR IS NEGATIVELY INFLUENCED BY, ADVICE OR ANSWERS GIVEN.

4. How We Select Leaders

Womens Bible Cafe™ leaders are volunteers with a compassionate and loving heart for Jesus. They are past and present participants in online Bible studies with our ministry and have been recognized for their ability to minister to others. They are not professional counselors, ordained pastors, nor medical personnel and therefore unable to offer such advice. Our leaders reflect Christ and will be removed from the ministry team for posts on their personal Facebook profiles or other online profiles where the post is offensive and in violation of our ministry terms of use.

5. Respect the Copyright of the Authors 

It is essential to respect the copyright of the individual authors.  You’ll need to purchase the individual book necessary for participation in online study. It is a violation of copyright law and a lack of integrity to share books or related videos and materials without permission from the author or publisher.

6. We Have the Right to Moderate all Posts 

We have zero tolerance for a violation of privacy or copyrights. We have zero tolerance for putting down others. 

INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR: Spam, promoting products, asking for money or free books, promoting other ministries and groups, interrupting or redirecting the conversation, religious debates rooted in legalism, condemnation, offending others, and adding people from the Womens Bible Cafe™ groups to other Facebook groups (harvesting) without someones permission.
