Women's Leadership Forum


Lifeway Women Leadership Forum Virtual

The year 2020 has brought new challenges to all of us. With these global changes, women have different roles to fulfill. Women need to be equipped with training and practical tools to help them navigate leadership responsibilities and the future course of the church, workplace, and culture. 

For the first time, with the live event in Nashville, Tennessee sold out at capacity, Lifeway Women will host Lifeway Women’s Leadership Forum Virtual! Regardless of where you live, you can join us to hear teaching from God’s Word, learn ideas and strategies for ministry, and become equipped to lead wherever God has placed you in these changing times. 

Women Who Attend Forum Are:

  • Women who lead or serve the local church in women’s and girls’ ministries
  • Women who aren’t on church staff or official leadership roles but lead small groups and Bible studies
  • Women who walk out their leadership calling in day-to-day life
  • Women with leadership potential looking for encouragement
  • Entrepreneurs, stay-at-home moms, and working professionals
  • Women just like you

How to Navigate Empathy Fatigue

Life-changing leaders pour themselves out for others, bearing burdens, and caring for the broken. But what happens when you just can’t hear another hard story, or you’re so burned out you resent people’s needs? In this breakout, Mary DeMuth teaches you how to manage your own empathy fatigue so that you can continue to serve those God has entrusted to you. Find how retreating, hearing God’s voice, and experiencing the love and care of other believers will reignite your empathy and effectiveness.

Developing Millennial Leaders

The word "Millennial" doesn't always have positive connotations connected to it. Many churches are frustrated, unable to effectively engage this generation that is steadily leaving the church. However, Millennials are one of the most talented, educated, and innovative generations to date. Even more so, they are our future church leaders! We need to be intentional about bridging the generational gap to develop and do life with them. This workshop will provide practical ways to disciple and empower this next generation of church leaders.

One Love: How To Protect The One Thing You Need To Fulfill Your Life And Calling

Have you ever wondered why your life in ministry isn’t everything you thought it would be? Have you ever struggled with feeling unfocused and spread too thin? This workshop will help you identify 4 words you need to redefine in order to reignite your passion for God and find your joy in living out your calling. You will leave this workshop with a clearer awareness of what God is up to in your life right now and a deeper commitment for more of God in your life.

Embracing Fear and Leading Well: Leadership and the Nine Enneagram Types

Each of us, no matter what Enneagram Type we are, have unique struggles and fears that can hinder us from becoming the God created us to be. In this breakout, we will discover the fears that can hold us back and how to embrace them while also actively moving towards our healthiest side as a leader so we can truly bless those we lead. Come hear how you are uniquely called to lead and bless others in the unique way God created you.

*Please note: This breakout session is only available during the live stream event.
