Our Father in heaven provides us with plan and purpose.
We know that being a woman in church leadership can be difficult and you probably feel overwhelmed and overlooked sometimes. We believe you shouldn’t feel alone in ministry. We’ve collaborated with women in leadership all across the country and asked them to share their knowledge and experiences.
We often put limitations on ourselves and believe we are incapable of things that are before us. God may be calling you to something bigger, something greater, and the only thing standing in the way is you.
Join us as we learn what it means to answer God’s calling and lead others as we follow him.
