Experienced women’s ministry leaders from Texas will be featured at the Women’s Ministry Regional Leadership Forum Sept. 19-20 at Parkside Baptist Church in Denison, including SBTC Women’s Enrichment Consultant Shirley Moses. Other leaders include Simone Monroe, an administrative assistant at Criswell College and well-known conference leader and former Texan Chris Adams, Women’s Enrichment Ministry Specialist at LifeWay Christian Resources, editor of Women Reaching Women and Transformed Lives.
Topics addressed at the forum include special events, mentoring, prayer, networking, leadership training, missions, evangelism, beginning a women’s ministry, reaching all generations, and reaching professional women. Some topics will be discussed in large groups, while others will be covered in small breakout sessions.
Participants will discuss what works, what doesn’t and what problems to avoid. Attention will be given to networking as an effective way to stimulate thinking and find answers to every participant’s questions regarding women’s ministry. Instead of workshops and lectures led by experienced trainers, those attending will learn from peers seeking to lead women’s ministries in local churches. Facilitators will guide small-group discussions, with most of the sessions dedicated to comments, questions and answers from participants.
Those attending are encouraged to bring samples for a Share Fair?such as programs, brochures, budget information, names of speakers, weekly schedules, newsletters, purpose statements, or calendars of events. By providing up to 125 three-hole punched copies, participants will add these to notebooks provided at the forum. Contact information should be included in those handouts.
Locally, interested persons can contact Shirley Moses at 903-786-4322.
