Stonecroft Ministries equips thousands of women to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with their neighbors across the street and their peers worldwide. Stonecroft's impact on women's lives during the last three-quarters of a century is unprecedented. Throughout its history, staff, ministry leaders, and volunteers emphasized and relied on prayer to accomplish its mission. Today, ministry field staff members are located around the country to support volunteer leaders who share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with women through various effective means.
More than 25,000 volunteers conducted more than 8,000 Outreach events in 2011 during which thousands of women indicated they started a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. This amazing volunteer force also hosted well more than 8,000 Stonecroft Bible Studies to introduce the Gospel to women and help them start their relationship with God.
Volunteers in more than 60 foreign countries use our resources to spread the Gospel as well.

Mrs. Helen Duff Baugh established The Christian Business Women's Council of America in 1938 as a dinner program in which the Gospel of Jesus Christ was presented to career women in cities across America. In 1948, Miss Mary E. Clark, former businesswoman and missionary in Maine, joined Mrs. Baugh to help lead the rapidly growing evangelistic and missionary organization, which by this time reached out to women in all stages and walks of life.
When the ministry's international headquarters re-located in 1952 to the Stonecroft land in Kansas City, Missouri, the group of outreach ministries took on the property's name.
