Women’s Ministry Team Dynamics – Consultation with Karen Hodge or a WM Trainer – 1-1/2 hours

Women’s Ministry’s end game is never just a stellar program but rather a healthy church. Since over half of most church congregations are female, the health of the church can be tied to the health of its women and leaders. This consultation is meant to help your women’s ministry team diagnose its overall health and then work with a Women’s Ministry Trainer to chart steps to flourish as you move forward. When you register, you will be matched with a trainer and then be given a short questionnaire to fill out to help the trainer customize and contextualize your time together for optimal benefit. This investment of time will be filled with equipping, encouragement, suggested resources, and strategic problem-solving.
