A Summit for Women in Church Leadership

MARCH 3-4, 2021





Join us for She Leads Church 2021

During this summit, we will be taking a look at the importance of establishing healthy rhythms in our spiritual lives, our work lives, and our personal lives. 


Our speakers will be addressing topics like work-life balance and how to remain intentional during busy seasons. They will offer practical tips and advice on how to juggle it all.

Check out what women said about last year's She Leads Church 2020

“It was just highly encouraging to hear from godly women in ministry and in leadership, be vulnerable, honest and real about the struggles, the how-tos, and the victories.”

“There were great tips for where boundaries needed to be set, and it also enabled me to give myself permission to change some of my relationships.”

“Each faith leader spoke to me in different ways - one of the best seminars/webinars I have ever attended.”
