We live in a culture that has placed more value on convenience than connection. Our local chapters, which are the foundation of our ministry, play a key role in reconnecting women and equipping them to deepen and develop relationships that God can use to change their hearts, lives, families, workplaces, and churches from coast to coast. Through these chapters that meet twice a month, members are united, face to face, with women of different ages, backgrounds, denominations, and walks of life. The connections that develop in our chapters serve as a catalyst for women to encourage one another to grow in three ways: spiritually, leadership skills,and relationship skills. We believe that growing in these areas will equip women to live each day with intention and purpose for Christ and thereby impact and elevate The Church.
In 2014 we are going through LeadHer Bootcamp and Getting in Shape to Serve
Our callings, our passions and our gifts are crucial parts of the role that God created for us, but sometimes, the struggle is not in our willingness to serve, but in how to do it. We allow our fears, our routines, our uncertainties and our busyness to stand in the way of God’s unique purpose for our lives. So often we settle for a life of good enough when God has called us to a life of great.
This year, LeadHers are focusing on getting themselves in shape to serve as they prepare themselves for big decisions that will lead to radical transformations in their lives spiritually, physically, mentally, financially and relationally.
As we dive into 2014, we are excited to challenge women to practice discipline, to build endurance, to release the fears and burdens holding them back and to recognize those around them that have been called to fight with them. It will not be an easy year, but we anticipate a year full of growth as our LeadHers all over the world get themselves in shape to fulfill the purposes God has called them to.
2014 Verse of the Year is:
But God is doing what is best for us, training us to live God’s holy best. At the time, discipline isn’t much fun. It always feels like it’s going against the grain. Later, of course, it pays off handsomely, for it’s the well-trained who find themselves mature in their relationship with God. (Hebrews 12:10-11 MSG)
