    The Delight Ministries is a place for women to grow their faith in a group with others. Delight was created to allow young women to come together and gain more knowledge of the Bible and who God is.

    Known for its pink aesthetic, this is a club that allows young women to come together weekly and study the bible and how it can be applied to one’s daily lives.

    Junior Gracie Reid, leader of Delight Ministries, said this was something the campus needed. She loves the group tremendously.

    “The ministry is a place for young women to come together and not only learn about the beauty that is God but also be able to feel the comfort and love from women,” Reid said.

    This is a place for women to feel comfortable to be allowed to discuss the things that are taking place in a setting that is comfortable and familiar.

    “Delight for me was what I needed in a time in my life when I was confused and lost,” said Meghan Worden, founder of the UNCP Chapter.

    She is proud of how far Delight has grown on this campus. “If you would have told me this back in 2017, I would be so ecstatic that so many hearts will be transformed because of this organization,” Worden said.

    Wooden graduated from UNCP in 2020 and came across the organization when she was in need of a transformation.

    “I knew that this was something I needed to do for myself, and all the girls on this campus who were being faced with the same struggles as me. The only thing that could allow my heart to transform was God,” Worden said.

    Students can attend meet- ings every Tuesday night at 8 p.m. The meeting is at the University Center, Room 251.

    Light refreshments are provided along with little hints of pink. The study for this semester is the book of Genesis. Books are $15, but the ladies are willing to share if you are not able to purchase a book.
