WOMEN IN CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP
Please note, our Women in Christian Leadership: Freedom to Be Forum is now beginning on Friday, February 3, not Friday, November 4.
We have been so looking forward to gathering to start exploring what freedom to be looks like as women in Christian leadership. Yet sometimes plans need to change.
It is with great sadness that we share that two of our Steering Team members have lost a parent in the last few days. As they are key members, we have decided to postpone our event as we stand with them as they grieve.
Knowing this is a difficult time of year to reschedule, we will look to have all three Freedom to Be conversations in the New Year. Please keep February 3 and March 3 in your calendars and we’ll be adding one more date shortly.
Thank you for your understanding.
Women are leading ministry and contributing much needed perspectives, talents, and efforts to advance the kingdom here in New England. However, oftentimes we are not offered the support and community we need to lead. That's why this forum exists. To give us a place to share our experience and have conversations with other women so that we can all grow in how we lead.
Join this forum to connect with fellow female ministry leaders for encouragement, support, and equipping. Through peer-led small groups and larger group learning opportunities, we offer various ways to build community with other women in Christian leadership who share similar challenges and experiences.
Interested? Sign up here to join, we'll inform you of all events and groups!
Speaking of which, our new Freedom To Be Forum starts this February 3! Learn more by listening to this video invite from Victoria Kowarick and Sharon Kumar below:
Freedom to Be
Across Contexts: POSTPONED
Our first forum will now take place on February 3, we'll discuss what it looks like to reach different ministry frameworks to support and encourage one another.
What does it mean for us, as female Christian leaders, to have the freedom to be?
On February 3, we're kicking off a series of three online conversations for women in Christian leadership, to explore together what it means to thrive in Christian leadership and have the "freedom to be" who God is forming us to be!
We recognize the challenges that our context, generation and culture can have on our ability to embrace our gifts. Over the three events, we hope to raise awareness and deepen our view of the meaning, breadth and depth of living across contexts, generations and cultures as gifted daughters of the King.
Rather than ask an expert, this online forum will be a conversation among those attending. To make it a safe place, this conversation will not be recorded so there’s only one way to join in!
Sign up now to join us as we talk about "Freedom to Be: Across Contexts" on February 3, "Freedom to Be: Across Generations" on March 3, and "Freedom to Be: Across Cultures" will have a date coming soon. Each of these conversations will take place online and go from 12pm-1:30pm.
Thanks to our sponsor, World Vision!
The Women in Christian Leadership gatherings are chances to listen to the heart of other Christian women, to experience their passions for Christ and His church, their inner and outer fears, dreads, joys and sorrows.
