Increase Awareness of Your Event Speaker

So, you are planning a women’s conference. Congratulations! It’s no secret that you’ve got your work cut out for you. And no doubt, you are hoping to draw a multitude of women from the north, south, east and west to attend the event. As such, you are looking high and low for some ideas to guarantee high attendance.

Here’s my tip:

Book Oprah Winfrey.

Just kidding!!

My tip is to increase awareness of your speaker among your audience. Whether or not your speaker is nationally known, she may still be relatively unknown to the women of your church. Obviously, you are very excited to have this speaker, and you want the ladies of your church to be equally excited. After all, women who are excited about the speaker, will be sure to attend the event. And they will invite their friends to come. And their friends will invite theirs, and voila – you have a well-attended event and women are hearing the life-transforming Truth of the Gospel.

So, how do you acquaint your audience with the event speaker to increase attendance?

Build a strategic introduction plan that incorporates the following initiatives:

  • Introduce your speaker at a big reveal. This creates momentum for your scheduled event.
  • Conduct a “media blitz” by hanging well-designed event posters throughout your church. Add the event to your church website in addition to weekly bulletins.
  • Feature the speaker’s published books in your church library, book club and Bible studies.
  • Share her blog posts on your women’s ministry Facebook page or forward them in an email.
  • Does she have YouTube videos? If so, consider how you can share them in Bible studies and in social media.
  • Encourage your women to follow the speaker on social media and subscribe to her blog. Let the speaker help you! Many speakers have witty tweets and engaging blog posts that will endear your women to them.
  • Host a challenge! When a speaker has multiple Bible studies or books, announce that those who complete them all will get to attend a special luncheon with the speaker during the event (if she is agreeable), or something equally enticing.

For any initiative, awareness will get you to 50% of your goal.  Therefore, adding these components to your event marketing plan are key ways to ensure higher attendance at your next event.

Release Women Into Ministry, Part 2

Releasing women to do ministry 2

My phone rang, unusual in this age of texting. “Can you talk?” my neighbor asked. Well, technically, I could – but truthfully, I didn’t want to. I wanted to tackle my to do list; instead, I cleared my calendar, made coffee and sat at my kitchen table with my neighbor.

She’s my neighbor and had some questions. In a short hour we laughed, cried, prayed, shared, debated, discussed, worshipped and, of course, we ate. This interaction was a direct result of doing ministry outside the church walls.

Welcoming Saints-in-Waiting With Love & Grace

When you equip women to use their spiritual gifts outside the church, they will return to church with lost, lonely, broken women from their neighborhood – women like you used to be, if you can remember your life before Christ (1 Corinthians 6:9-11). Some of the people you meet will be saints-in-waiting – people who have not yet met Jesus and whose lives haven’t yet been transformed by His love and power. If you’re really successful, your Bible studies will soon be filled with women living with their boyfriends, people who cheat on their taxes, alcoholics and addicts.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to embrace these women and create a culture of grace within your ministry. Don’t flinch. Don’t rush to condemn or correct. Instead, look at Jesus’ example. Don’t you think Jesus overheard a few f-bombs around Simon’s table? Do you imagine the Samaritan woman dressed modestly to go to the well? Do you wonder if there was a drunk guy telling dirty jokes at the wedding in Cana? Jesus preferred these people. There was no condemnation. No eye roll. Just grace.

This Is What Ministry Should Look Like

As you release women to do ministry, you will be pulled out of the cozy places where everyone speaks our language and sings hymns, and plopped into strange spaces where the language is blue and country music booms. You’ll hear things that make your heart sink and learn stories that make you heartsick. And that’s where you should be.

After releasing 70 disciples into neighborhood ministry in Luke 10, Jesus praised God for revealing Himself to “infants” (verse 21). As women are released into ministry, your women’s ministry just may find itself with a room full of spiritual newborns! In that case, take note of what Jesus did in the chapters following Luke 10. He ministered and taught the basics in relationships, worship, prayer, repentance, faithfulness and more.

This is the risk in releasing the women in your church to go outside the church walls and do ministry: saints-in-waiting and new believers don’t come in tidy packages. But the reward? Oh, it’s eternal.

We want to hear from you: How do you embrace Saints-In-Waiting in your ministry?

Release Women Into Ministry, Part 1

Release Women to Do Ministry 1

My neighbor, Lauren, wasn’t meeting very many neighbors at her job giving colonoscopies, so she started a neighborhood newsletter—something she had never done before. In the first issue she wrote an article called “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” that was the catalyst for our first neighborhood watch, block parties, community yard sales and a baby shower.

As a women’s ministry leader, you probably spend a lot of time helping women like Lauren identify their spiritual gifts. Lauren is a helper with the gift of mercy. At church, she takes meals to people and works in the nursery. But at home, where she spends the majority of her time, she applied her spiritual gifts very practically.

Using Spiritual Gifts Inside and Outside the Church Walls

Spiritual gifts are God’s supernatural power working its way through our words, our works, and our walk to take His witness to the world. We don’t have to have a title or position to use our spiritual gifts, and there’s no age restriction. The gifts are not commands, and they are not constant. They work in combination and they increase with exercise. All of our gifts work together inside the church to reach those who are outside.

Administration, discernment, evangelism, leadership, service and teaching are some of the spiritual gifts we find in the Bible (see 1 Corinthians 12, Romans 12 and Ephesians 4). We’re often adept at helping women use their gifts inside the church; we can plug her into a team or put her on an assignment faster than you can say “Volunteer Captain.” But it’s also important to help your women take their gifts to the streets.

Releasing Women to Do “Every Day Ministry”

While there are women under your leadership who are content with weekly Bible studies and annual retreats, others long to get their hands dirty every day working the harvest. Releasing them into the fields to use their spiritual gifts can feel risky. We’re used to planning, monitoring and controlling but releasing women to do every day ministry can get messy. This kind of ministry doesn’t have a website or a tag line: it looks more like two neighbors having coffee or co-workers talking about faith on their lunch break.

Jesus told 70 disciples, “The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest. Now go!” (Luke 10:2-3). We and the women in our church and ministries are the workers. As ministry leaders, we are to equip and release them to go. Because when the church leaves the building and roams the city, people encounter Jesus.

We want to hear from you: How do you release women to use their gifts outside the church?

Meet With Yourself Weekly

Posted April 29th, 2015 @ 5:00 AM by Guest ContributorPrint

WMN_Blog_Images_5

Last week, I completely missed an important lunch date with a friend. It was something I had been looking forward to – and it was on the calendar where it shouldn’t have been overlooked. But when she texted me to confirm just 10 minutes before our scheduled meeting, I knew instantly I had messed up. I had entirely forgotten our appointment.

This doesn’t happen to me often because I’m slightly Type A when it comes to my calendar. But when it does happen, it’s always a result of one thing – I had neglected to conduct my Sunday Summit.

The Sunday Summit is a weekly meeting I hold with myself to get organized and focused for the week. I borrowed the name from a mentor of mine, although I adapted her process to fit my lifestyle.

If you’re like most women in ministry, you’re juggling many different roles and responsibilities. And even though you are good about keeping your calendar up-to-date and managing your ever-expanding “To Do” list, things inevitably slip through the cracks. The Sunday Summit is my attempt to prevent that from happening. And it has the added bonus of helping me prioritize, reflect and communicate.

Here’s how it works in 7 simple steps:

  1. Establish a regular day and time for your weekly meeting. I like to plan on Sunday afternoons – after church and before dinner. But some ladies I know prefer Friday afternoons or Monday mornings. Just pick a specific time and day that works for you and stick with it so you create a habit.
  2. Find a quiet spot where you won’t be interrupted or distracted. You’ll need a pen, paper and your calendar.
  3. Start by writing down your accomplishments from the previous week. This is your chance to acknowledge successes, both big and small, and celebrate the progress made.
  4. Then, write down three (only three!) priorities for the week. I allow myself three personal/family priorities and three work/ministry priorities. Keeping the list short will help you stay focused.
  5. Next, write down any errands, activities, special events, etc. that you need to do this week. Include a statement about one thing you will do for yourself the following week.
  6. While you focus on everything you need to do, it’s important to also think about the person you want to be. Do you want to be patient? Generous? Happy? Write it down!
  7. And finally, write down anything you give yourself permission to NOT worry about. This is where you let go of the things that are important but not urgent.

I also use this weekly time to ask God for guidance, courage and wisdom to accomplish the tasks He’s given me with confidence and grace. After you write everything down and get a handle on the week, take a few minutes to discuss activities and expectations with important people in your life, such as your husband, children or babysitters.

The Sunday Summit has been such a help in my own life. I pray that it blesses you and your ministry as it has blessed me. Having a weekly meeting with yourself may just keep you from missing an important deadline or even lunch with a special friend!

Question: What methods do you employ to stay organized in regards to personal and ministry responsibilities?

Don’t Quit

So you feel like giving up? Have you ever questioned whether or not it’s all worth it? Are you mentally, physically or spiritually exhausted? Does it all just seem too hard?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then take heart. Chances are, you are in the right place doing the right thing. So how do you know when to stick it out and when to move on? I have found that changing my questions often helps me get clarity.

What is my level of exhaustion? Do I need to take a break or a vacation? I find myself going Mach 2 with my hair on fire and before I know what hit me, burn out sets in. Maybe I need to take that command to Sabbath seriously and do a little self-care.

Is what I am doing still in line with my passion and gifts? Are there aspects of what I am doing where I still feel joy and I see God at work? This is usually a pretty clear indicator that I am still in the right place at the right time.

Am I listening for the direction of the Holy Spirit? I’ll be honest; this one is the hardest for me. When life gets chaotic or noisy, it’s often hard to slow my mind down enough to listen. That’s why self-care is so critical. Moments when we are alert and quiet are when we most clearly hear from The Lord.

“So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” Hebrews 10: 35-36 (NIV)

I love this verse because it tells me without doubt that there will be a need to persevere. There will be times when we will be tempted to give up. It’s an absolute certainty. This is our call to stay confident in the one who call us because he assures us that it IS worth it.

One of my favorite movie quotes of all time comes from the film “A League of Their Own.” In it, Geena Davis’ character is telling her coach, Tom Hanks that she is quitting because baseball just got too hard. I love his response.

“It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard… is what makes it great.”

Ministry is hard. Ministry is also great. I encourage you to stick with it. You can do this! I’ll be here to cheer you on.

Question: What other tips would you offer to encourage someone who may feel like giving up?

Help Women Understand the Men in Their Lives

Posted April 15th, 2015 @ 5:00 AM by Guest ContributorPrint

Filed Under Relationships

WMN_Genesis1-27

A women’s ministry leader once told me, “With a woman, if something is unsettled in her marriage or dating relationship, it’s like nothing is right with the world until that is resolved.” Whether it’s a single woman wondering why her latest date won’t call her back or a woman married fifty years, we are relational creatures. It is so hard to thrive in life, if we’re not thriving in relationships!

So, how do you help women thrive in relationship with their spouse?

In more than thirteen years of research, I’ve found one secret that can make all the difference: help women understand a few key things about men.

For women, everything can change when we learn a few simple, eye-opening truths about the way men think and feel. If we can help women “see” just a few of those things, and apply them, it is amazing how much more they can enjoy their relationships.

Here’s an example you can use to help the women you lead understand the men in their life:

Men look confident but secretly have more self-doubt and vulnerability than we realize. He most wants to be good at what he does and to know that his spouse thinks he is good at what he does. Feeling appreciated is like oxygen to a man. Yet at the same time, a man’s most private question is, “Am I any good as a husband, a father, a businessman? Am I adequate? Do I measure up?” And every day, he looks to the woman in his life for clues to the answer to that question.

How do you take this simple truth and help the woman who comes to you apply it in her life?

Ask her to consider how she speaks to him. For example, a simple question such as, ‘Why did you let the kids stay up so late on a school night?’ can actually imply, ‘I think you’re incompetent, you do not measure up as a father, get out of my way.’ Remind her that he likely deeply wants to be a great dad – but also doubts his ability to be one. And now, in his mind, she just confirmed he’s incompetent, so it will be a whole lot better next time not to try.

Yes, according to research, that is truly how men think. All the time.

Help her to rethink her choice of words and tone. For example, to say, “Thanks so much for taking the kids while I went to my women’s Bible study but help me understand: you know it’s a school night, did you want some more ‘dad time’ with them? What was going on?”

And there is even another possible way for her to respond: Just say, “Thanks” and don’t ask the question at all! Encourage her to choose to trust that he is capable but may just have different judgment from her – and that is okay. It is so hard for us to let go enough to do that, but it frees a man up to be a dad the way he desires to be, the way God has called him to be.

Tell the women you minister to, the vast majority of married men (more than 99% on my surveys) deeply care about their wives. He wants to be the man his wife needs. A dating relationship is a bit different, but among the single men in my research it was clear a man is looking for a woman who will be safe with his tender heart, and can believe in him despite his inevitable mistakes. Tell your women to choose to believe in her man and watch him become so.

Question: How can you help women apply this simple truth in their relationships?

Become a Balanced Leader

Posted April 8th, 2015 @ 5:00 AM by Jennifer RothschildPrint

Filed Under Resources

WMN_Blog_April_2

Would you describe yourself as balanced? Okay, hold down the laughter!

I could write a book called Totally Stressed and How I Achieved it While Seeking Balance! I’m sure not balanced enough to write a book about balance, but I know someone who is. In fact, He summed up the three things we need for balance in a single sentence in His book. You guessed it! The someone is God, and the book is the Bible. And the verse is Micah 6:8. In it, God says…

Do justly.

To do justly, we implement rightness toward our family, ministry and ourselves as we fill in the blank spaces on our calendars. Sometimes it means we say, “No,” so we can say, “Yes,” to our God and our families. To “do” justly also means we DO something rather than shrinking away from the ever present challenges and demands of life. We use our limited time and resources reasonably because we know that it is God who gives us these things. When we do, we acknowledge that His gifts are indeed good.

Love mercy.

This pulls our hearts in. Mercy mandates forgiveness and forbearance. When we love mercy, we lose rigidity and celebrate the good news that none of us has received what our sin really deserves. Loving mercy helps us not obsess over a perfect house or a perfect ministry. It helps us stay flexible with our time and clarifies our priorities. Loving mercy protects us from the tendency to be legalistic and militant in the way we do life and ministry.

Walk humbly with God.

This is the best part because we simply position ourselves for an intimate journey with God. We don’t run ahead with our agenda and commitments but rather walk with Him as a sincere follower with a modest mind-set. To walk humbly is to be unimpressed with our titles, accomplishments and even our burdens.

God is The Balanced Leader.

When we follow Him, He leads us to imitate Him. We are at our most imbalanced when we are the most prideful. Pride makes us impatient, rigid and forgetful of our deep need for God. Those who truly walk humbly with their God can’t help but do justly and love mercy and become the balanced leaders God uses.

Let’s keep God’s standard and God’s pace so we can be balanced leaders!

Question: How do you maintain balance as a leader in ministry?

Embrace Different Nationalities in Your Ministry

Posted April 1st, 2015 @ 5:00 AM by Guest ContributorPrint

Filed Under Resources

WMN_Blog_April_1
Do you have different nationalities represented within your ministry or community? This week I’d like to encourage you to embrace the different nationalities and give your women the chance to share about their heritage.

Recently, we did this at our church by creating a “Trip Around the World” event and it was well attended and enjoyed by all. We have a large international community but, if your church is not ethnically diverse, you could partner with other local churches or have women within your church sign up to study and represent different countries or regions.

Our “Trip Around the World” had many elements that helped make it an international experience for our women. As you know, event themes can be a hit and a great starting point for the direction of your event. Here’s how we made our event unique to our women:

Greeting – Customized passports which were dated the day of the event were created for each attendee. As each person entered the event, the passport was stamped with our church stamp.

Food – We encouraged the women to bring a dish or two that was native to their country of origin. If you have a large church, you could consider having them serve desserts or appetizers as it may be cost-prohibitive to ask your women to cook for 200 people.

Decor – Memorabilia such as pins, flags and souvenirs from each of our own countries of origin were placed around the event space and added to the experience for the attendees.

Connection – We had a time for sharing about their heritage and many women told stories from their past and funny things that they did as children while they were growing up. Some sang funny songs and a couple of people did quick skits. It was a great opportunity for us to connect with one another and learn something new.

As with any event, be sure to keep your purpose top of mind. This can be a great outreach opportunity or even a meaningful way to create connections among the women in your church. Either way, it’s important for us to always remember that our purpose is to help women to know God in a deep and meaningful way. This event theme is a great opportunity to remind your attendees of how God has created each one of us differently and given each unique experiences that He will use for His glory.

Question: How do you embrace different nationalities represented in your ministry?

Pray for Your Event Speaker

Posted March 25th, 2015 @ 5:00 AM by Guest ContributorPrint

Filed Under Resources

I was nearing the end of the message when I felt the first tickle. I cleared my throat and continued. But the tickle grew more persistent. Someone handed me a glass of water, but the need to cough grew stronger. While a volunteer read a Bible passage, I turned to the wall, hacking loudly behind my hand and praying fervently the coughing fit would quickly end.

The speaker you have scheduled for your next women’s conference or retreat desperately needs your prayers – before and during the event. She may have spiritual struggles, family issues, deadlines – or allergies!

We all know prayer is vital, but we often allow the busyness of those last days of event planning to distract us from the event’s primary purpose – the spiritual growth and encouragement of your women. Dozens of details press in and each day we tell ourselves we will “pray later.”

Be purposeful in praying for your speaker. Put it on your to-do list. Ask your team to join you in prayer and help them know how to pray for her.

Devote Yourselves to Prayer

Here are six specific ways you can pray for your speaker and her ministry to your women:

Message Preparation – You want the message she gives to touch hearts and meet the needs of women. Pray God gives her wisdom and discernment as she studies and prepares. (Colossians 1:19)

Physical Needs – Pray for your speaker’s health, relationships, travel safety and even her technology tools. Every area of her life can impact her ministry. (Romans 1:9-13)

Spiritual Protection – The enemy does not want your speaker’s message to be powerful and effective. Pray that God will “protect her from the evil one.” (John 17:15)

Spiritual Growth – Your speaker is still growing spiritually. Pray she will grow in her knowledge of God and live a life that pleases Him. (Ephesians 3:14-19; Colossians 1:10-11)

Message Delivery –Life isn’t left behind when your speaker approaches the front of the room. She may be dealing with a scratchy throat, a rebellious teenager or a packed schedule. Pray she can deliver God’s message with clarity, boldness and grace. (Colossians 4:4-6, Ephesians 6:19)

Message Effectiveness – This is the end game! Pray her message will hit its mark and bear much spiritual fruit. (Colossians 1:10)

Don’t forget to let your speaker know you’re praying for her. It’s great encouragement.

Form a 911 Prayer Team

Posted March 18th, 2015 @ 5:00 AM by Guest ContributorPrint

Filed Under Resources

Turmoil surged. Tears poured. Confusion erupted. Negative thoughts bombarded my mind. I felt like I was in a war zone. Dropping to the floor, I cried out for God’s strength and protection from this oppression.

God, there is no way I can speak at this women’s retreat! I am too weak. How can you use me if I feel this way? I just want to crawl into a hole.

All of a sudden, Psalm 91:1 pops into my head: He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Opening my Bible, I decided to read all of Psalm 91. In seconds, I found myself praising God for allowing me to suffer through this mental chaos and utter confusion. My weakness opened the door to a fresh experience with Jesus. That evening, as I walked onto the stage, Jesus strengthened me from head to toe in the shadow of the Almighty. He gets all the glory!

The next day I shared my experience with one of my close friends. With a gentle answer, she said, “Carla, when this happens to you, call or text me so I can pray for you!” I told her I didn’t realize what was happening at the time, but agreed to call or text her if it happened again.

BlogImages_March_4_Psalm911

This conversation lingered in my mind. Later that evening, I read Psalm 91 again. I focused on Psalm 91:1 and to my surprise this is what I saw: 911. My heart leaped with excitement! Thoughts ignited. The next time I experience one of these spiritual warfare attacks I need to text PRAY 911 to my prayer team! I jumped up and started praising God for how He works in and through our situations.

I challenge each of you to use this same method. Ask God to raise up an emergency prayer team, so that in the midst of a difficult situation, circumstance, or spiritual attack, you can text PRAY 911. They don’t have to know the details, God knows it all. He gives us the opportunity to participate in eternity here on earth through prayer. Standing in the gap for one another is a two-way blessing. Share this new idea with others. And, as God leads you to form or join a PRAY 911 team, don’t hesitate to live sold out for Him and pray for others.

Question: Do you have a team in place to pray for your women’s ministry?
