The Women’s General Fellowship (Mafutaga Aoao a Tina) is the largest auxiliary fellowship in the Congregational Christian Church of American Samoa (CCCAS). True to their motto: “Be Watchful, Build and Work Together for the Lord,” the Women’s General Fellowship is inclusive of all women who are members of the local congregations that constitute the CCCAS. As an auxiliary fellowship, the Women’s General Fellowship have their own set policies and procedures for organization and carrying out their ministerial activities.
The Women’s General Fellowship is a highly recognized and well represented fellowship within the CCCAS. They have one representative in the Development Committee (Komiti o Atina’e), two representatives in the General Purposes Committee (Komiti o Feau Eseese), and six delegate seats in the General Assembly. Moreover, the Women’s General Fellowship are authorized to present motions for deliberation before the General Assembly, as well as present a report of their finances before the General Assembly for the awareness of the entire Church.
Not only does the CCCAS rely on the Women’s General Fellowship for carrying out certain ministerial activities that are befitting of women, but the greatest contribution of the Women’s General Fellowship to the overall ministry of the CCCAS is the establishment and management of Kanana Fou Elementary. Founded by the Women’s General Fellowship in 1996, Kanana Fou Elementary today has grown into one of the most prominent elementary schools in all of American Samoa.
Thanks to the vision and dedication of the Women’s General Fellowship, Kanana Fou Elementary proudly exemplifies one of the main aspects of the mission and ministry of the CCCAS.
