Women of Faith Goes WILD

Debbie-Stuart-138px Hello Sweet Group Leaders,

I am Debbie Stuart and I have been so anxious to write to you! I have just joined the Women of Faith Ministry Team as the Church and Leadership Development Director after serving 20 years as Director of Women’s Ministry on a Church staff. I love Church and everything about it and I am so thankful to the Lord for this opportunity and privilege to impact the Church to a greater degree.

What I am so thrilled about, that I hope you will be excited about as well, is the Church and Leadership Development Initiative for Ministry Leaders, Bible Study Teachers and women serving in the ministry positions (like you). This ministry will include training at the Women of Faith weekend events, Leadership Lessons as well as other opportunities online and much more. We will be introducing “ WILD Women of Faith” (for Women In Leadership Development) . All of these will involve workshops, discussion groups and personal consultations. Topics such as:

  • Equipping women to grow an effective and impactful Women’s Ministry
  • Discussing Trends, Temptations, Tactics to reach women
  • Essentials of Leadership, Life Skills and Leaving a Legacy
  • Building Strong Teams and Recruiting Volunteers
  • Bringing Together all Generations; Mentoring and Discipleship
  • Strong Biblical Teaching Tools and Techniques for Bible Study Leaders/Teachers
  • Developing Personal Spiritual Growth for potential leaders
  • Resourcing – And Much More!

I can hardly wait to get this rolling! We are going to have great fun in God’s Word! No doubt some in your group will also fall into this leadership category and I just wanted you to have a little information to share with them. More details will be online soon.

I am also thrilled to let you know about the Women of Faith 2013 Resolutions! We are giving some concentrated effort to a couple of areas we believe the Lord has called us to focus on this year. We are honored and consider it a great privilege to speak Truth into your life. We appreciate you helping us pass these along to others who may not know what WOF is all about. You can read our Resolutions here .

This is going to be a great year for Women of Faith!

Thank you for your passion and partnership!


"THE BIBLE" Comes to Women of Faith in an Exciting New Way

History Have you seen the new series The Bible on the History Channel? This fall you’ll see even more of it at Believe God Can Do Anything! We’re partnering with producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett to incorporate a special set of film footage from series at each event of theBelieve God Can Do Anything tour. The cinematography will allow us the opportunity to bring the Bible to life with live action and state of the art computer-generated imagery (CGI). “We made a yearly resolution to make God’s Word the center of our messages,” said Lisa Harper, ministry director at Women of Faith. “With clear, practical application we were honored to have this extraordinary opportunity to partner with “THE BIBLE” series.”

Report from the Speakers’ Retreat

Speakers Retreat Many of ourBelieve God Can Do Anything speakers came together earlier this month for prayer, planning, “getting to know you” time, and a little fun, too! One morning was devoted to filming, so you’ll see new footage popping up soon in emails, on Facebook and YouTube, and at . We’re excited at the passion and depth of biblical knowledge our speakers—new and returning!—bring to the table. Great things are in store for you and your group at Believe God Can Do Anything!

A Slight Change of Plans in Charlotte

Bojangles Coliseum The Charlotte, NC Believe God Can Do Anything event is moving three miles down the road from Time Warner Cable Arena to Bojangles Coliseum . The date has not changed; it’s the same weekend as before (October 11-12, 2013). Our ticketing department hard at work to ensure that seats in the new location will be comparable to the ones previously selected. (A confirmation email will be sent to with the exact location of the new seats.) As a thank you to everyone who is making this change with us, we will provide complimentary event parking at Bojangles Coliseum . Parking at this venue would normally be $10 per day, so that free parking is a $20 value.
