Leader Development

Leader Development

The goal of Women Ministries is to connect women in transformational relationships and to unite them in Christ to impact our world, and without women leaders in local churches, this goal would not be realized. We desire to resource and equip you as a woman leader. See training opportunities and downloadable resources below. For more information, write to wmc(at)covchurch.org.

The Leadership Connection (TLC)

The Leadership Connection trains and connects leaders throughout your regional conference, providing updates, resources, tips, and opportunities to network with other Women Ministries leaders. This encouraging and inspiring gathering is offered during the fall women’s retreats. The following TLC resources are available as free downloads:

Ministry Coaches

Ministry coaches are passionate about women’s ministry and serve as volunteers in their regional conference. They are ready to come alongside to assist you in any way necessary. In addition to providing training for developing vibrant and productive ministries to and through women, they are trained to help you realize your ministry goals.

We can connect you with trained ministry coaches available in the United States and Canada. Ministry coaches:

  • assist with the questions and challenges of ministry;
  • help with articulating a vision for your ministries;
  • provide coaching in determining, realizing, and evaluating goals for your ministries;
  • offer training in designing ministries that grow and strengthen the church; and
  • and network with area women’s ministry leaders for encouragement and fellowship.
