​A registration cost of $15.00 includes lunch and all workshop materials. Luncheons are hosted in the WMU NC office conference room at 11:30 am,

How many of us have found ourselves at one point or another comparing our leadership calling and style to that of another person? We think maybe they are smarter, more gifted, have a higher calling etc. Yet, God has clearly given each of us unique gifts to advance the kingdom of God and bring glory to His name.


What are your gifts? How are you embracing your unique calling in leadership? Let’s gather together as women and dig deeper into what God says about each of us as women in leadership, embracing His unique calling for us to give back to the world to bring glory to Him.

We hope you can join us as we learn about moving from comparison to confidence!

You can learn more about our guest speaker,

Dr. Peggy Banks here.
