Standing Room Only at Women's Leadership Training and Certification »
Nearly 50 women gathered in the RMC Conference Room April 7-8 filling it to overflowing for the Leadership Training presented by Carla Baker, NAD Women’s Ministries Director. Beginning Friday evening, they learned about visioning and goal setting--or bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now--along with the characteristics of an effective leader, including conflict management.
Sabbath began with a devotional message, then moved into an extensive schedule from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. covering the topics of nurturing and mentoring, the major components of effective communication, strategies of evangelism and Bible study, growing and building confidence, developing ability as a public speaker, assessing women’s needs in the local church and community including spiritual growth, friendships, life skills and more. And, of course, the women were served nutritious and healthy meals and snacks.
The Women’s Ministries Leadership Certification Program includes four levels of training, each level having core requirements as well as electives.
The women who attended the Leadership Training and Certification program are returning home prepared and excited to develop growth and health for these end times in the local church.
