Key Quotes:

  • “I always thought I was confident… but I realized in taking this class that there was a lack of confidence in going forward with some of the things I wanted to do.” – Marie Weber
  • “I have taken action since I took this class; it has built my confidence up.” – Marie Weber
  • “Part of what the program did was present leadership from a Biblical worldview and some takeaways from that are leadership as a servant leader, which looks different from worldly leadership… sitting in Scriptures that focus on that was very helpful for me.” – Jennifer Tjepkes
  • “It’s not all about me; it’s about gifts that God gives us, and how are we stewarding that? Which feels different than me trying to shine up and be a good leader and have it come from something that I’m doing.” – Jennifer Tjepkes
  • “Being in the community of women was critical… it’s easy to not do it on our own; it’s harder when we’re more accountable to a group.” – Jennifer Tjepkes
  • “Just taking purpose and calling out of this very specific place and really understanding how general it is…who we are called to be first and foremost as Christians… that really helped me.” – Brandi Davis
  • “It’s in the day to day that leadership is implemented.” – Jennifer Tjepkes
  • “It gave me a whole different attitude of: this is where God has called me, go forward with it.” – Marie Weber
  • “There’s a sense of permission… to still be learning and growing and discovering parts of myself… having that permission has been freeing.” – Brandi Davis
  • “Don’t come in with any expectations of what the process will look like… you’ll come out on the other side and really be able to see how the Lord moved, and be able to tap into all the goodness that came from the experience.” – Brandi Davis
