Women and Leadership Mentoring

Detailed information about 2020 Forum Mentoring is not yet available but will be posted in the future. Please review the information from the 2019 Forum for a look at the types of mentoring that may be available at the 2020 Forum.

In life, it is easy to lose sight of the calling and purpose that God has given you. From the busyness of family life, to the demands of leadership, it is sometimes difficult to feel the empowerment and inspiration that comes from living a life worthy of the calling of Christ.

Sometimes there is just nothing like having another Christian to speak to about the things that may be hindering you in your walk with the Lord.  All Christians are sinners and struggle to maintain the sanctification process while ministering to others.  Another person may see the "blind spot" that you may have missed.  That individual can consider and laugh and pray with you in the love that Jesus offers.  Forum Women and Leadership Mentoring meetings are a time to do just this—to seek the perspective that God may have on your circumstances and situations.
