What makes our community of leaders a beautiful place is that we recognize each of us has a voice worth hearing.   We share our successes, what we have learned, new ideas, fresh concepts, and our hearts for serving God and the women He has entrusted us with.

For that reason, we welcome submissions from leaders who are in the Women’s Ministry Council family and beyond.  If you would like to write for us please read through our guidelines and fill out the contact form at the end.
