Women in Church Planting Preconference Workshop – April 25-26 Orlando, FL

Path 1 is hosting a pre-conference event for women in church planting at Exponential East 2016. The event is designed for pastors, planters, staff at church plants, women involving planting movements, and planter spouses.

Are you searching to find ways to serve God faithfully in a church plant while bringing your whole self and the myriad of roles that you play in the process? Are you looking for ways to breakthrough gender stereotypes to make the world a more just and safe place for women in leadership and beyond? Would you value conversation with women who are involved in church planting leadfership? If any of these speak to you please join this conversation among women involved in church planting.

We are married, single, divorced, and widowed. We are moms, aunts, sisters, daughters, and friends. We are called to serve as pastors, teachers, encouragers, servers, evangelists, and givers in a church plant. Interacting with a panel of women leaders in church, we will talk about creating balance and self-care routines, jugglining priorities and roles, and leading effectively in church planting. We look forward to hearing your story and sharing strategies for your sucess – whatever that looks like to you.
