The Ministry

Drawing Near is a ministry of Heritage Baptist Church Ballarat and is made up of  a community of young women dedicated to seeing Christ glorified in all things.


The purpose of this ministry is to point girls and women alike to the Lord Jesus and to encourage and spur them on in their faith. Our heart is for our sisters in Christ to draw near to God each day, with the result of  loving Him purely and serving Him wholly.


We recognize our imperfections and inability to do anything apart from the grace of God, but hope and pray that God would take this ministry to draw hearts nearer to Himself.
