“Several years ago a few leaders gathered in a conference room to dream about a grassroots movement of intentional training and preparation of women leaders. A vision for Women in Ministry Leadership cohorts (WIML) was birthed which is a process of coaching and mentoring with a catalytic training event hosted by a myriad of leaders and facilitated by Marion Ingegneri. The idea was after completion of a cohort those women would then do a similar model in their own area so that this model could multiply around the nation. It has been exciting to watch this dream become a reality. Marion has continued to start new cohorts and I encourage you to consider being part of the next cohort and passing the information on to any women leaders that want to grow in their leadership capacity.” Tammy Dunahoo, General Supervisor Foursquare Church

Focus Group

This ministry leader experience is focused on women serving in ministry leadership and specifically for women with a ministerial call. It is not required that you have ministry credentials to attend but the experience focuses on women within the framework of those who are in public ministry and emerging leaders following the pathway of public credentialed ministry. 

It is often misunderstood that this group focuses only on those women serving in women's ministry in a local church. This is not a women's ministry focused group but rather a group focused on women serving in ministry leadership. This includes women serving in women leading or emerging leaders in any role of ministry. Such roles may include preaching, executive pastoral leadership, missionaries, and any diversity of public ministry.
