Have you ever wondered what is happening in your community? What businesses exist? Which ministries are working alongside the community? Who are people of influence in your area? I have. So, this week I stepped out on faith and attended a local business “branding” event.
I don’t have a business, I actually know a bit about branding, and yet I just knew that I had to give this luncheon an opportunity. I learned about it through a sponsored post that was on my Facebook page. I knew absolutely no one attending, and I had no idea what I was walking into but hey… I like lunch. That’s a win, right?
By the time I walked out of there, I learned of three local ministries in our area that I could connect our Women’s Ministry leaders to. I also was able to help another ministry with a resource that could help her cause. Another ministry offered me a few solution ideas that I had not considered as we grow our ministry. I even learned a tidbit about branding that I am going to be employing with the Women’s Ministry Council.
Talk about a win! If you are trying to find ministries or organizations that your Women’s Ministry can work with, consider a networking event. Or, if you are a ministry or organization in need of support from local businesses… consider a networking event. Ask around, search on Facebook, and I’m certain you will find one in your area.
