Chronicling 40: Day 165-168

It takes more than a busy church, a friendly church, or even an evangelical church to impact a community for Christ. It must be a church ablaze, led by leaders who are ablaze for God

I’ve spent the last few days thinking about community, and what it means to be in fellowship with other believers.  I’m also beginning to recognize the need to seek out those who are in a similar space as I am.   Yes, in some ways I am referring to married with kids… because we have common unity there.  I also mean women who are in leadership roles, because yes… we have common unity there.  However, I’ve been narrowing the field a bit more and realized it is even more specific than that.  I desire fellowship with other leaders who are investing in leaders.

Do you know what it is like to be gifted with leadership skills and no one willing to pour into you?  To sit in church, serve on committees, lead ministries and do so purely winging it?  To desperately search the internet for articles, books, and resources from someone who has been in your position that is willing to share that wisdom with you?  Or to long for someone else who you can talk to about your struggles in your particular ministry … who has been there, or is there currently… and can offer up a sympathetic ear?

It is this very reason the Women’s Ministry Council was started.  It is the very reason we decided to create a model that could expand into other areas.  It was this very reason why, four years later, we are planning the LeadHer Conference to connect even more women who have common unity in the role of leadership.

It is also why I have been fine tuning my thoughts on my own sacred circles of friendship, on a personal level.

  1. Speaking to my heart! I am sitting in my office at work for a quick second and literally said on my gosh YES! I hope this conference is everything you desire and is able to serve others out there! There are so many that serve or could serve that don’t or have been taken out of a leadership role or one reason or another. I am excited for you!

  2. Thank you! I’ve been keenly aware of this deficit for some time… and working to combat it… but now it’s time to take a full charge forward! Praying for your heart on leadership too!
