Course Description

Female leaders have played significant roles throughout history, but the church has not always been a place for developing, empowering, and supporting women in their leadership gifts. Successful churches today know that diversity is not a new concept and helping each congregation member develop their God-given gifts and talents has always been a part of our Kingdom mission. In this Now What? Empowering Women Leaders course, J.R. Briggs and Mandy Smith guide you through a deeper understanding of female leadership in the context of the church and how leaders can address some of the challenges that inhibit women from developing their leadership gifts while creating pathways for service in the church and beyond.

We estimate that this will take you 20.5 hours to complete (but not all in one sitting!).
