An Invitation to Chat with Leaders about Ethnicity and the Church

Hi Folks,

I am coming off a spring and summer season that was filled with travels, speaking engagements, training seminars, leadership opportunities, and writing. I am slowly getting back on the saddle now, and can hardly wait to share what I have been learning.

LeaHer Connect

For now, I wanted to invite you to participate in an online and interactive discussion next week. The LeadHer organization has organized a fabulous group of women who will engage the topic of “Ethnicity and the Church.” I will be joining Christie Love, Founder and Executive Director of LeadHer, along with Dr. Halee Gray Scott, Ericka Jackson, Tara Beth Leach, and Gail Dudley.

LeadHer has a deep passion to join the Church in challenging believers to become intentional about their impact and ability to change the world and spread the Word, while challenging women to see their influence and intentionally live to impact the world around them. You can find out more about LeadHer through their official website.

You can join this discussion next Thursday, August 27 from 7:00-8:00 pm CDT/8:00-9:00 pm EST via Google Hangout. Log in to participate here. I look forward to having you join us!
