Sometimes being a woman in church leadership can be difficult. Maybe you feel overwhelmed or overlooked, or maybe your role just isn’t quite what you were expecting. Maybe you do love your role and you feel supported and encouraged by those around you, but you still need a little inspiration every now and then to help motivate you and remind you why you do what you do. Either way, we believe you should never have to feel alone in ministry. 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 you may be the only thing standing in your own way.
During She Leads Church ‘22, we’ll be focusing on Abundance. We have collaborated with amazing women in leadership and asked them to share their knowledge and experiences.
Let’s take a look at the virtual event so that when March 16 and 17 come around, you know exactly what to expect.
We have over 50 incredible speakers lined up to share during this two-day event. These women are passionate about serving the Lord and working with others. They have each been working in ministry or serving in some capacity and are extremely excited to share what God has been doing in both their personal lives, their careers, and their ministries. Below, you can learn a little about just a few of our incredible speakers.
