If there’s one thing we can always count on happening, it’s change. This world is constantly changing; our jobs are changing; our families are changing; our churches are changing; our bodies are changing…(don’t get me started).
Working Women of Faith is no exception. As the lives and needs of working women of faith change, we need to change to meet those needs. Coming this fall, we will be implementing some significant changes here at Working Women of Faith and we wanted to let you know about them. Here’s a brief list of the changes coming with details down below:
Change in New Chapters
Ever since Working Women of Faith started, there has been the vision of expansion. Expanding beyond the Twin Cities where it started, and giving it wings to fly and land in other cities and towns across America (and the world!)
Now that vision of expansion is able to become a reality. With our new chapter model in place, a Working Women of Faith Group can be started anywhere and everywhere there is a need.
Two new chapters will be launching this fall in Minnesota, with hopefully more to follow soon! Details about those new chapters will be revealed in the coming weeks. If you have ever thought about starting a group for working women of faith, but didn’t know how, we can give you the structure and support to do it! Contact us to get more information.
Change in New Leaders
This leads us to the next “new” thing, new leaders. New Chapters = New Leaders. For the impact and reach of Working Women of Faith to expand, we prayed for a few good leaders to be led by God to become Working Women of Faith chapter leaders.
Each leader completed our Working Women of Faith Leader Training and will launch their chapters in September. Our training is designed to equip and empower women to launch a chapter successfully. We’ll be highlighting each of our new leaders in the coming weeks. They each have a heart for God and a heart for women. We are so blessed to have them on our team!
Our Chapter Leader training is a part of every new chapter, and includes both biblical leadership training and practical tips and tools for operating a chapter. Chapter leaders earn a percentage of membership revenue, and receive ongoing support and training throughout their tenure as a Working Women of Faith Leader.
Change in New Meeting Structure
With all of the changes in the way people meet these days, we have been forced to rethink our meetings as well. We have been holding our monthly meetings via zoom, and it appears that will continue-at least in part- for the foreseeable future. We had to take a hard look at that and ask some questions:
- How do we continue to connect with each other as women without being in the same room?
- How do we continue to provide our safe place and times of sharing?
- How do we engage our women in discussing and applying what they learn?
We sought God for answers and came up with some opportunities to restructure our meetings. We will still have a time to connect and learn and share, but will be leveraging zoom and breakout room to accomplish that. These groups of two or three will allow women to share and connect on a deeper level. Our teaching will be more interactive and allow for discussion and application.
We are confident that God will use this new structure to continue to provide a great experience for our members and guests.
Change in New Membership Benefits
We are always looking to add value to our Working Women of Faith Members. How do we provide what helps without it hurting anyone’s pocketbook? We have restructured our membership to include new benefits and a different pricing structure. Here’s what members will receive:
- Access to monthly meetings and exclusive content
- A subscription to Right Now Media @ Work
- A (3-month) Faith-Focused Planner
- The “Killing Wonder Woman” course and book on the E5 Institute
- 25% off all products, events and courses
All of this is available to members for the following cost:
- $100 registration fee
- $25/month membership fee
That’s an incredible value!
Tune into our next zoom meeting on August 11th! This will give you a taste of our meetings and it’s the last one we will offer for free. You can learn more and register here.
As the world continues to change, we will continue to change to meet the needs of working women of faith. One thing that will never change is our commitment to provide a place where Real Women can Get Real about their work life and faith.
