Our Mission Statement

The mission of the Women's Ministries Department of the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists is to model Jesus Christ through meaningful relationships and effective ministries. 


Michigan Women's Ministries

Meet the wonderful women that help make all our events possible. Under the leadership of their director Jane Harris, they spend countless hours making these events possible. They travel from all around Michigan and volunteer their time to serve others. Each woman has a creative mind, a willingness to serve, and most importantly a heart for God and a mission to spread the gospel.  


Jane Harris

Jane Harris currently ministers as the Women’s Ministry Director for the Michigan Conference. She organizes many seminars for women, moms, and daughters and loves to connect with people. Jane believes outreach is for everyone and that there are many methods of evangelism and which can come in many different sizes and shapes. But the one method Jane loves the best is Friendship Evangelism because this method has as many different forms as there are people. (Ministry of Healing, pg. 143.)

Janie is married to Craig Harris and together they have two grown married daughters, as well as one grandson Owen and granddaughter Morgan. God has given Jane the gift of organization, decorating, and hospitality. It is not unusual to see Jane planning events at home and for the conference office. Jane has always loved studying the Bible and has given many Bible studies. Her hobbies are bargain shopping, decorating, restoring and re-purposing old items, staying active, laughing, and spending time with her family.



Brianna Kittleson

Brianna Kittleson is the new secretary for Women's Ministries. She recently graduated from Andrews University with a degree in Graphic Design and Photography. Brianna loves to be creative and being apart of the Women's Ministries team is a great way to put into practice her God-given talents. She has a heart of ministry and wants to be used by God to spread the gospel.


Brianna is the daughter of Michelle and Brian Kittleson and has two brothers. She loves spending time with her family and friends as much as possible. She enjoys painting, drawing, and digital art. She also enjoys the outdoors and playing all kinds of sports.
