Emboldened to lead and serve in our vocations.

So what gives us courage to step out and serve in the places we can been called to lead and serve?

That is an answer we hope to explore in the stories presented on our Embolden page. We are looking for women with strong faith who stepped out to help when it would have been easier to step back. Maybe they were emboldened by a degree or a relationship, maybe it was a story of someone in need or a verse in scripture that cut straight to the heart. The point is they stepped out in faith knowing that God would equip them along the way. And their stepping out made a difference, small or large, for the kingdom of God.

The Women’s Leadership Institute (WLI) seeks to educate, encourage, and embolden Christian women for exemplary leadership. When we use the word leadership, we mirror John Maxwell’s definition that, “Leadership is influence.” WLI’s vision is to be a growing community of confident and competent Christian women leaders who serve and lead wherever God has placed them and who confront relevant issues with courage, truth, and love. In other words, to be women who shine brightly in the dark and encourage others to join in.
