You are a strong, unique, much needed voice.

You are a woman leader in the church.

FIERCE, a gathering for women who lead spiritually and professionally within the church, will combine safe space, support and encouragement from those who have “been there and yet still do that” with tough love challenges, tools and a network that will help women clergy and other women church leaders rediscover their call and thrive in the “industry” that’s responsible for eternal kingdom of God impact.
