Developing Female Leaders

by Kadi Cole

If you're like most church leaders, you feel the tension between the vision God has called you to fulfill and the number of leaders helping you get there. 

Yet there is a reservoir of untapped leadership potential sitting dormant in your church. Why?

Experienced church leader and organizational expert, Kadi Cole, decided to find out. Through interviews with thirty high-level female and male church leaders and surveys from over 1200 female ministry leaders from across the globe, Kadi's research revealed The Eight Best Practices that leaders can implement to start accessing and maximizing the potential of women in their church. 

Positive, practical, and applicable in any theological setting, this step-by-step guide will walk you and your team through up-to-date research, powerful discussion questions, and developing an action plan to move your church forward. 

Within the first chapter you will begin to see how you can navigate the minefields and make a difference in your church and with the women you serve alongside. Developing Female Leaders takes away the mystery and shows you how!

Emotionally Healthy Woman

by Geri Scazzero

Geri Scazzero knew there was something desperately wrong with her life. She felt like a single parent raising her four young daughters alone. She finally told her husband, “I quit,” and left the thriving church he pastored, beginning a journey that transformed her and her marriage for the better.

In this eight-session video Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), Geri provides you a way out of an inauthentic, superficial spirituality to genuine freedom in Christ. This study is for every woman who thinks, “I can’t keep pretending everything is fine!”

The journey to emotional health begins by quitting. Geri quit being afraid of what others think. She quit lying. She quit denying her anger and sadness. She quit living someone else’s life. When you quit those things that are damaging to your soul or the souls of others, you are freed up to choose other ways of being and relating that are rooted in love and lead to life.

When you quit for the right reasons, at the right time, and in the right way, you’re on the path not only to emotional health, but also to the true purpose of your life.

Women of the Word

by Jen Wilkin

We all know it’s important to study God’s word. But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. What’s more, a lack of time, emotionally driven approaches, and past frustrations can erode our resolve to keep growing in our knowledge of Scripture. How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible?

Women of the Word has helped countless women with a clear and concise plan they can use every time they open their Bible. This book will equip you to engage God’s word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart.

A must-read for every woman interested in teaching and leading Bible discussion groups in your church.”
Nancy Guthrie, author, Even Better than Eden
