In February 2011 IFG (ICONZ for Girls) began in Rolleston. As our group established and grew we decided to become an independent girls ministry in the community. We came up with GEMS (Girls Encouraging Mentoring and Serving) and officially launched GEMS June 2013.
G is for Girls
E is for Encouraging
Throughout the bible we see instructions to “encourage one another daily” (Hebrews 3:13) and verses meant to encourage us. Encouragement is a core value of GEMS, it’s part of our name and GEMS provides a positive and encouraging place for all our girls.
M is for Mentoring
S is for Serving
