30 Year Celebration Days
In 2014, Dove held seven “Celebration Days”throughout the North and South Islands. The focus of these days of celebration was to give thanks to God for the blessings Dove Ministry has brought to hundreds of women throughout New Zealand over the last 30 years. The first day was held in Auckland where former Dove National presidents and women from the original Auckland formation group, shared their experiences of meeting and praying together and receiving the vision for Dove Ministry.
Dove Ministry began with a Seminar Day in February 1984. The response was wonderful and from that day Dove has continued to meet for monthly meetings, full day seminars and weekend retreats. The women shared how from the original Dove Team other leadership teams throughout New Zealand evolved. The current Dove National President, Val Morrison, shared her vision for the future of Dove, stating that although there will be changes Dove will remain faithful to the original guidelines.

Thirty white doves were released into the sky to symbolise sending forth the vision of Dove into the future.
