Our Mission

“Be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it, have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air and over every living thing on earth”
Genesis 1:28

Our Mission is to spiritually and socially empower women. An empowered woman is grounded in her spiritual practice. This in turn informs her discipline for mind/body wellness, financial literacy, environmental stewardship and contribution to community. We host an annual conference that aims to equip women with the tools they need to live a fulfilling Christian experience, that in-turn inspires them to give back to the unfortunate back home. Founded by a Christian Pastor who is originally from Zimbabwe, the organization has to date focused its initiatives on Zimbabweans, with an emphasis on those living in the global diaspora. We are God’s kingdom agents here on earth and we are to rule, subdue and have dominion over the rest of creation, including the aggressive satanic forces. The goal is to dwell on a level of existence no lower than that which God has ordained, and indeed, to go forth with what the Lord bestowed on us and also help those in need.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a lasting ministry on communities around the world; spiritually inspired by the network of empowered Christian women attending the annual WOD conference for years to come.

Who We Are

We are a Biblically-Christian-based non-profit organization that is not affiliated with any church or denomination. Women of Dominion (WOD) was founded in 2011 as a response to the desire of Zimbabwean women who live in the Diaspora for “mubatanidzwa” (Christian women’s gathering as held back home). As such, we focus on empowering, equipping, and motivating Zimbabwean women in exercising their God-given power, authority and dominion in the foreign lands where they live. The two founding initiatives is the annual conference that WOD hosts in various locations across the USA and 2) giving back to those unfortunate in Zimbabwe, facilitate by the Projects Coordination Team. We have also since developed another youth-based initiative, Girls Let’s Talk (GLT).

Our Core Values

  • Having Biblically faith principles, we believe in the Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit

  • Created in the image of God, we act on our God-given dominion and authority to be productive in His Kingdom

  • Being God’s stewards, we have a responsibility to take care and nurture those in need.

  • Being in Diaspora, we plan to leave legacy for our children born abroad.

WOD is run by an Executive Board and Board of Advisors, comprised of women Pastors, Pastors’ wives and other skilled women with vast expertise.

Disclaimer: WOD does not enforce its goals and beliefs on any person, church or organization. 

WOD Accomplishments

✓ Over 2,000 women have attended the annual conferences since our launch
✓ 50 young girls have participated in the GLT program
Dozens of people living with Albinism in Zimbabwe have benefited from our work

Our Leadership Team

Pastor Marvelous Ndhlovu

Pastor Marvelous is the Founder and President of Women of Dominion International (WOD). She holds a Bachelor of Arts Honors degree in Accounting from the University of Zimbabwe and has worked professionally as an accountant. In addition, she graduated from Faith World Ministries Bible College in Harare, Zimbabwe with a Diploma in Practical Leadership. She lectured at the Bible College briefly, before migrating to the USA in 1999. In the USA, she attained bachelor’s degree in Practical Ministry with a major in Pastoral and Leadership from Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas.

Pastor Marvelous received the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal savior in a small group at the age of 23 in Zimbabwe. She became extensively involved in Faith World Ministries Church and was a leader of both the youth ministry and virtuous young women ministry until she came to the USA. Here, she has worked with young adults as well as women in various ministries. Her passion is to inspire women to exercise their God-given dominion in order to reach their full potential through prayer and intercession. Currently, she is the Resident Pastor at Restoration International Christian Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Pastor Marvelous is married to Owen Ndhlovu and they live in Indianapolis with their three daughters Musa, Mazvita and Nomusa.

She was inspired to create an organization that could serve as an interdenominational ministry with a mission to empower and equip women; with a focus on immigrant women from her native Zimbabwe. Each year the organization hosts an annual conference that brings Zimbabwean women residing in various parts of the world for a unique and inspiring fellowship experience. In her role as President of WOD, Pastor Marvelous oversees the day to day executive function of the nonprofit and has a dozen women on a leadership team that supports the successful mission of the organization.

To all the patrons, supporters and friends of WOD, she says, “Thank you very much for believing in this important cause to minister to women. The circle of women who are beneficiaries of this work continues to grow and it is inspiring to see what this empowered community is becoming. In answering God’s call to get on this path that is the Women of Dominion, I am deeply grateful for each of you because you make this dream a reality. For everyone who has donated money or contributed in some way; the progress we are making is largely because of you. Please know that I have you in my prayers and I trust that together, we can make the world a better place, one woman at a time. May God Bless you in your endeavors.”
