This When She Leads conference is for every woman serving in ministry. Our theme this year is, Breaking New Ground, taken from Hosea 10:12 – “Sow for yourselves with a view to righteousness, harvest in accordance with kindness, break up your uncultivated ground for it is time to seek the Lord until he comes and rains righteousness on you” (NASB)
As we gather, our focus is threefold:
First, we are asking God to break new ground in equipping us for this cultural moment.
Second, we are asking God to break new ground in discovering new territories, new fields, and new ministries.
And third, we are asking God to break new ground in our communities, where we want to meet new people and establish new friendships, so we can partner together for the furtherance of the gospel.

Conviction and Courage in this Cultural Moment
Jeremiah 1:7-8 The LORD replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the LORD, have spoken!” What others may, I may not! The cost of leadership and the dilemma of choosing day by day this calling to a higher standard. What happens if I don’t want to lead in that way? Come to this breakout session to find out!
Paving the Way
How to Reach Gen Z
As time keeps moving forward, there will always be a need to reach the next generation. Although there is nothing new under the sun, we must come to a place of understanding younger people in a way that is honorable to God and yet also meets them where they are at. Join me as we discuss what this looks like, both spiritually and practically.
Hand to the Plow: Fighting Human Sex Trafficking
“Let Justice Roll Like a River” Amos 5:23-24
The journey towards “living justly” in this world is a lifestyle we are called to embrace as children of God. The Church has an amazing opportunity to bring hope, healing, and truth to the hurting, vulnerable, and exploited. Vinoth Ramachandra wrote, “Jesus and the Biblical prophets did not think of rendering assistance to the needy in the world in terms of charity, but in terms of justice.” Join us as we discuss how the Church is in a prime position to “put our hand to the plow” and some practical ways to do that individually and as a leader.
Developing Leaders and Servants Matthew 24:45-46
One of the keys to propagating (to increase by reproduction) servant-leaders in ministry is having a well-established, firmly rooted, and spirit-filled archetype to follow, one that is worth imitating. In this breakout session, we will discuss a healthy model of leadership, along with practical ways to extend these principles to those we serve with through instruction and training.
