A global movement to provide a platform to encourage, educate and elevate women in their faith journey.

Women in Christian Leadership Gather to Encourage, Educate, AND Elevate for GOD's Glory

Discover and strengthen your gifts, develop your leadership skills through peer to peer education, mentoring, group coaching and mastermind programs led by women bringing glory to God and sharing the love of Christ!

We are here to equip you for your calling to honor God by providing you the resources to serve in excellence to HIS glory. WiCL will encourage you in speaking the truth in love for the unity of Christ's body.

"But speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ,  from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love."

Ephesians 4:15,16

Women in Christian Leadership is Committed to Developing 

Servant Leaders

As believers we have an enormous advantage in that we know Jesus and are empowered by the Holy Spirit for our calling. He has set an example of servant leadership through the washing of the disciples feet. WiCL's Virtual Roundtables and Coffee & Conversations provide opportunities for sister to sister encouragement. 

"Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them."

John 13:14-17
