Our Mission

Encourage and equip women to experience a deeper relationship with Jesus.

Our Vision

We choose to have everyone hear the good news of who God is and how much He loves you. A biblically functional community that inspires, elevates, and empowers women, globally. To host events and create impactful resources, to nurture women spiritually, emotionally, and in their relationships with others.   To elevate all, to live a life of purpose, on purpose and for purpose.

Our Values 

  • We believe in honoring God and living in faith.
  • We believe loving relationships should permeate every aspect of life.
  • We believe in a unified community of servants, stewarding their spiritual gifts.
  • We believe in empowering every woman, to live a life of purpose, on purpose and for purpose.
  • We believe in a community of women, to feel comfortable being themselves and to be and live authentically.  Authentic relationships are essential to a fulfilling life.  A tribe of women who are willing to work together, to elevate life.
  • We believe in living a vibrant, honest, and meaningful life.
  • We believe the transforming power of grace.
  • We believe in the power of story.  The empowering impact of each and every story.  We start by sharing our stories, usually about the times when it all went wrong and most vulnerable.
  • We believe in the healing power of humor and being fun-loving and playful.
  • We believe in  hope.  To be inspired, to dream, to grow and to transform hope into reality.
  • We believe in building, modeling and elevating community.
  • We believe in the yearning for continuous personal growth which is a daily process, where you grow to be more and more like Christ.
GOD LOVES US ALL

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.   John 3:16

. . . because He created each of us and each one of us is unique.  Because Jesus came to seek and to save the lost, we feel compelled to do the same.   All of this wonderful diversity means we hold a variety of views.   At Women of Faith, we focus on what unites us. We choose to love and to offer grace to one another. We are here to laugh with you, cry with you, and walk beside you, on your faith journey.  By having a relationship with God, we choose to encourage you to deepen it.  If you are in a different place right now, we choose to introduce you to a community who loves you more than you know.

You may choose to know Him better through His Son Jesus (we hope you will) and it is your decision.  We will continue to love you either way. Some of our speakers and leaders are Bible teachers, who share truths found in the Scriptures. Some share their own unvarnished faith stories with courage and transparency. If something you hear at Women of Faith makes you think, pray, discuss, and dig into the Bible to examine what you believe and why you believe it, we have fulfilled our purpose. The bottom line is this: God loves us. All of us. And He chooses for us to love each other.

What We Believe

The Bible is the inspired word of God and is true.  

– 2 Timothy 3:16-17

There is only one true God, existing as three Persons in one: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Spirit (The Holy Spirit).  

-2 Corinthians 13:14, John 1:1-5, 1 John 5:7-8

Salvation is found only through Jesus Christ.  

-Romans 10:9-10, John 1:12

The greatest command is to love God and love one another.  

-Matthew 22:36-40

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.  

– Luke 19:10

Our Events

We create and host events for women,  traveling to meet you where you are.  Our events are an open space where women are able to connect, dream, and grow.  Music, laughter, and grace-filled messages awaken women for what God has in store. These messages speak to heartfelt needs—transforming lives and sparking change which spreads to communities, churches, families, and friends. Women of Faith events are for women who choose to deepen their faith and for women exploring what faith is all about — safe, honest, authentic, vibrant and meaningful — to call all into fellowship with Him.  Women of Faith is a welcoming faith based community helping you to inspire, elevate and empower your life.
