About Us

Women in the Word is a ministry for women founded on the cornerstone of Jesus Christ. The ministry is comprised of multi-denominational women from all generations with the common purpose to encourage one another to finish the race well. This is evidenced by discipling women in the Word and way of God through modeling for the next generation lives of fruitful obedience (Titus 2:3-5)

Our Purpose
Women in the Word seeks to equip women throughout their personal pilgrimages by studying, interpreting, and applying the Word of God; by loving God and each other, and by sharing their stories.

Our Mission
Women in the Word seeks to produce Godly, Christ-centered women who through the study of God's Word seek to glorify Him and fulfill His calling for their lives by way of His grace and in humble dependence on His power.

Our Testimony
As we have watched the Lord shape the ministry of this Bible study over the last few years, we stand firm in the belief that our testimony can be summed up in two simple yet profound words... "BUT GOD..."

(from the book "This Isn't the Life I Signed Up For" by Donna Partow):

The punchline of every testimony must be "But God!"
I was in pain, but God...
I made foolish choices, but God...
I couldn't find my way, but God...
It's not about us.
It's about God.
Remember that, and you're half-way half-way healed.



Our Statement of Beliefs
To follow is Women in the Word's statement of Beliefs, with Scripture for your reference:

Statements of Belief


We believe that God is the sovereign Lord of the universe and the Creator of all life, and that all created things exist for His pleasure and purpose to bring Him glory.
(1Cor 8:6, Col 1:16, Rev 4:11)


We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who became flesh and made his dwelling among us. Jesus lived a sinless life and was the perfect sacrifice for our sins. He bore the punishment we deserved so we can be pure, blameless and righteous before God. He overcame death so that we can live. Jesus Christ is the only way to God the Father. All who believe in Him as their personal Lord and Savior shall not die but have eternal life.
(John 1:12-14, 3:16-17, 14:6,
1Peter 2:22, Romans 3:22-26)


We believe that we each have a responsibility to share the Gospel and live sacrificially being transformed by the renewing of our minds though His Word and the grace given to us.
(Matt 28:19-20, Romans 12:1-2)


We believe that Jesus reigns in Heaven preparing a place for us and he will return for us as a bridegroom claims his bride. For this reason, we are on guard and alert to purpose to live “this day” in preparation for “that day.”
(John 14:2-3, Heb 10:23-25, 37-39, 2Peter 3:11-14)


Our Instructor - Joanne Tittle


Joanne was born and raised in Pennsylvania and moved to Florida in 1988.  John, her high school sweetheart and husband of 27 years, and their two children, two labs, and one French bulldog call Dunedin their home. Her son, Matthew, is 23 years old, an FSU and UM graduate and is currently working in a management position in Miami .  Her daughter, Madison, is 17 years old and a junior at Palm Harbor University high school.  God has proven faithful as He sustains, strengthens and leads them as a family. 
          In 2000, Joanne began attending Women in the Word Bible Study led by Sharon Longbottom.  In 2004, Sharon passed the mantel of teaching the Bible Study to Joanne.  She has remained faithfully obedient to God’s call on her life as she shares God’s Word not as a trained theologian, but as a woman seeking Christ and diligently working to fulfill God’s Will. She has a way of opening her heart, touching the lives of women and passionately sharing the Word and love of Christ.  Her desire is for women to know the love of Christ, love God, love His Word, and be able to apply His Truth to their lives daily and be transformed.
