Last weekend, we held our first women's event at NCC- (re)Vision. The name carries with it numerous meanings. We all need to be in a process of revision as God shapes us and forms us. And we want to revise what women's ministry typically looks like. We want to cast a new vision for who and what God has created us and is calling us to be.
It was a huge success. With minimal marketing and announcements, about 140 women wrapped around Ebenezers Coffeehouse to get in. We highlighted five women at NCC who are leading creatively in their unique spheres of influence-- from business to politics to fashion to art to academia to family. We had an all girl worship band. And in the spirit of (re)Vision, we decided to take a risk and served BBQ for lunch.
Maegan Stout, our lead (re)Visioneer, asked me to speak on the topic of women and leadership. I'll post some of those notes over the next few days.
