10 Things New Women’s Leaders Need to Know

Sometimes new leaders just need to know a direction for help and resources so this post will try to do that.  Most of what I share will be things available to you (many are free!!) from LifeWay Women.  Some will provide links to other ministries and organizations who also provide help to women’s leader.

1. Check out these resources for how to start and grow a ministry for women:

2. Visit this page of our women’s web site for more articles and helps for leaders:

3. Share this video with your staff or women interested in starting a ministry to women.

4. LifeWay Women Live Free Web Shows:

  • Topic changes monthly but you can view all archives of recorded shows and you can watch the current show several times a week.  Join us for the premier of each show that includes live chat.

5. Women Reaching Women blog:

  • We post 3 times a week on various women’s leadership topics. Also, catch our all women’s blog at All Access.

6. Attend one of our YOU Lead women’s ministry training workshops. These occur just ahead of each Living Proof Live event (except the simulcast live location). Attend both YOU Lead and Living Proof Live for a discount on the two.

7. Attend our annual Women’s Leadership Forum. This year the theme is Filling Up and Pouring Out. (Romans 15:13). You will learn to…

  • Reach women for discipleship
  • Build community
  • Minister out of the overflow
  • Connect the generations of women

(Shhhh…Special deal: be one of the first 100 leaders to being a younger leader 35 or under who has never been to the Forum and you can bring her for $25!)

8. Attend a local state training in your area.  Scroll down to the link “2013 Regional Training.”

9. Visit our main LifeWay Women page to sign up (at the very bottom!) for e-updates and mid-page to join our social networks to stay informed on all things Women!

10. Download our women’s catalog to your desktop for easy access.

We want to partner with you as you serve the Lord and your women.  Let us know how we can help!

    I am so glad to have found your site!! I lead a women’s Bible study at my church – Bethlehem Baptist, Minneapolis, MN – and Bethlehem is very big on women reaching women, woman to woman mentoring (Titus 2), and we are just starting women reaching women in crisis so I feel like I have a connect to LifeWay Women. I have taken, as well as attended, several Bible studies throughout the years and this past year I published my first Bible study: “Womanhood; Becoming a Woman of Virtue.” I love serving in women’s ministries and I love visiting your site. Blessings to you, Rita Kroon
