The purpose of GEMS Girls'
Clubs is to help bring girls into a
living relationship with Jesus Christ. To help foster this
all-important relationship between each girl and Christ, other
relationships are nurtured as well — between girls and

small groups with one leader or
counselor for each group of six to eight girls. And it is through these
small groups, and the interactions that take place in club that faith
is nurtured and developed, and long lasting friendships are made.
