Developing the leader’s inner life will be the focus of the Women’s Leadership Summits this fall and winter. Sponsored by Women of Grace USA and open to all women in the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches, the summits will be offered in two locations: Reading, Pa., on October 24-26 and repeated in the west at Seal Beach, Calif. on January 30 – February 1, 2009.
Featured speaker for both summits will be Teressa Pierce. Chery Boehm is the coordinator for the events.
The identical events offer women the opportunity to process leadership development with others who serve in similar ministries through vital interactions and intentional guided discussions. Participants will take home resources that will help them develop leaders in their local ministries.
“Leaders who are deeply impacted by God are able to facilitate holistic, meaningful life change in others,” say Robert E. Logan and Tara Miller in their book From Followers to Leaders. They stress that such leaders are “connected with God, growing in intimacy, living out their calling, using their God-given gifts, investing in healthy relationships with others.”
This is the fifth year for the Women’s Leadership Summit, which has previously been held in Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania.
