Women Lead Pastors Cohort

Fall 2023

Advance Your Calling and Mission

Journey with like-minded, women in ministry leadership. Listen and be heard from others in similar roles and form lifelong relationships.

These cohorts will help you chart growth plans and career pathways to help you lead well wherever you are.

Emerging and Seasoned Leaders will both have opportunities to learn from each other and mentors while considering career pathways for women in ministry.

Cohorts will meet in person in February and May and online in between, allowing for both connected in-person experiences and relationship developments, and minimal schedule disruption.

We understand that ministry and family commitments come up and we will be happy to make sure we do everything we can to keep you connected.

At Leadership Network, we are grateful for the opportunity to serve women in leadership across denominational and theological spectrums. Our Learning Communities will focus on empowering and connecting women with peers and mentors, as they grow in leadership confidence in their churches and ministry organizations. Groups will likely include women from both complementarian and egalitarian faith communities.
