Mardia

March 16th - December 31st, 2016

Pastoras y Esposas de Pastor Principal

3rd Wednesday 11am EST/8am PST

Mardia nació y se crío en Durango, México. Junto con su esposo Edgar Lira han estado en el ministerio musical evangelistico por los últimos 17 años. En el 2010 sintieron el llamado de Dios para mudarse de la ciudad de México a la ciudad de Las Vegas, NV a plantar una congregación hispana, dónde radican actualmente.

En este proceso de plantar iglesia y en el nuevo rol de dirigir una congregación, Dios sembró en Mardia la necesidad de fundar “Dirigiendo con Amor” (la parte en español de “Leading and Loving It”). Esto nace con el deseo de equipar, animar y conectar mujeres en el ministerio, al ver y vivir de primera mano la importancia de abrazar nuestra identidad y la importancia de relaciones fuertes en este caminar. Localmente dirige el grupo de Mujeres “Mujer Real” para alcanzar y fortalecer a las mujeres en la palabra de Dios.

December 5th - December 31st, 2016

Women in Ministry

1st Tuesday monthly at 6:00pm

Alumni Lounge- 22 McNeil Road, -Yaba. Nigeria.

AboutTReuben: I am Apostle T.reuben Urhobo. I graduated from CAPRO Ministries where I studied Cross-cultural Missions which consisted of courses like Discipleship, Church Planting, Biblical Counseling, Personal Edification, World Evangelization, Islam and others. Before then I was a Teacher in the Children Church of Living Waters Chapel in Nigeria, a part of the youth outreach, a intercessor in the healing and deliverance team and was also involved in the women's ministry. I have been the President and vice President of a Student Christian fellowship. I also served as Bible Teaching Secretary and Choir Director. There I took 7-week courses like . Music and the believer . Interpreting the Bible and so on. I was part of the Intercessory prayer group of Reinhardt Bonkke's Crusade in 1988 in Ava, Nigeria. It was great! Praise God! I am an author of the inspirational IS YOUR CHILD SWEET ON DRUGS!!!? and BEAUTIFUL VERSES IN VALLEYS STREAMS selling on Amazon.com. More are on their way. I have led teams on field and faith trips to mobilize the churches for Cross-cultural Missions/Missionary Support. I've spoken on fitness and health. Oh, I was publicity Secretary of my high school debating society. I'm a psalmist and worshipper. I love teaching the Bible. I'm also an artist, an entrepreneur and a publisher. I blog at faithandflair.blogspot.com and love to cook too. No, I am not a master of all trades, but I've spent years getting these skills, so it'll be safe to say that I have mastered some! I am also a trained Fashion & Textile designer, and love taking Sky pictures. I don't drive, but I mean to one day. I love learning as much as I can on topics that interest me. As a Christian Activist I find ways to spread the wholesome influence of the Kingdom life. I love sports especially football (soccer), track & field athletics, tennis, dance, synchronized swimming and others. I also love indoor games like ludo, whot, chess, ayo, koso, and pingpong. I lost both parents before age twenty and lost my beloved dog, Shield to snakebite. I preach boldly in the Lord's name because He delivered me from death thrice, and I know He loves me completely and unreservedly. I am called and anointed as an Apostle, Prophet and Teacher, and wow, it can get pretty isolated, but His grace is awesome! That's why I'm thankful for forums such as this. I am married and in a blended family. I love nature and support clean living. Well, I have since I've suffered allergies from childhood, so I am an ardent no-smoking, no-gmo, no -alcohol, go-organic, comedy-loving, woman. I am friendly but can't deny that I am a structure-loving, formality-wired, principled and reserved introvert whom women are drawn to. Strange, right? It's God, right. There's lots more to know, but this will have to do.

Hey Y’all! My name is Erin Carter. I am from El Dorado, Arkansas but currently live in Little Rock, Arkansas. I am in love with all things southern, sweet tea, Razorback football, and breakfast for dinner. I am both an introvert and an extrovert, just depends on the mood! I am a wife to my husband, Matt Carter, who is the pastor of connecting ministries at St. James United Methodist Church in Little Rock. I am also a mom of two wonderfully, entertaining children. Will is an energetic, charming, and sociable 8-year-old who loves to learn new things and play sports. Aubrey is a laidback, compassionate, and free-spirited 6-year-old who loves animals, dancing, and all things girly! I work full time outside the home as a referral development specialist for Woodridge Behavioral Care. This fancy ole title means that I market our company to various areas of Arkansas and complete assessments on children & adolescents to admit them into our long-term psychiatric program. When I am not working I enjoy cooking, working out, DIY-projects and connecting with other women. For the past 12 years I have supported and stayed involved in many aspects of my husband’s ministry. I enjoy being a part of the work that God is doing through him and serving along side him in the local church and missions. I am most passionate about local and global missions. My belief is that everyone is in a position of ministry through the way that they live and serve others in their lives. I am so thankful to get the opportunity to share with you what I have learned and are still learning about ministry life. I hope to be a positive source of encouragement to you through this group!

December 7th - December 31st, 2016

Associate Pastors' Wives, Pastors' Wives with Young Children, Pastors' Wives Working in Ministry

3rd Tuesday at 8:00pm EST/5:00pm PST

I grew up in a faith filled home, and I attended a Christian college and graduated with a degree in Education in 2002. In my past I wavered in my walk with the Lord and found that by His grace alone He wanted me and all my heavy baggage to be used for His glory. I have worked as a full time elementary education teacher, volunteered for countless children’s and youth ministry activities, and gone on various overseas mission trips. My husband Chris and I, having gone to the same college at the same time, found each other again many years later while he was serving in the US Marine Corps. While he had to endure the struggles of military service, God was also healing me of the heartache caused by broken relationships.

After many years apart, God brought us together in His perfect timing; He had been molding and shaping us for His greater purpose. We were married in May of 2010 while Chris was in his first year of seminary and I was teaching elementary school. In April of 2013 our beautiful son Michael was born and that May my husband graduated from seminary. A difficult season approached as my husband accepted an Associate Pastor position in July of the same year. I left work to be a stay at home mommy, we left our church family to join another church family, and we moved our home with our new baby in tow! God taught us many lessons and stretched our faith to the extreme during this time.

We are currently in our second year of ministry at our church where we have found that God continues to stretch our faith and grow us in astounding ways. God is always faithful in helping me keep my focus on Him while being a full time stay at home mother to a rambunctious two year old, a supportive wife to my husband and his ministries, a leader of “Leading and Loving It” Connect Local for South Florida, speak at local MOPs and Women’s Retreats, and lead a Bible study for mothers of young children, all while finishing my Master's of Theology in seminary. Every opportunity I get I want to encourage women to trust in God’s faithfulness. One thing I know for sure, I must tell others what Christ has done for me!

Crystal Holder is the wife of Bryan and the mom of two lively energetic boys. Bryan is the pastor of The Mill Church in Pickens, SC. With one child adopted from foster care and one born with Down Syndrome and a congenital heart defect, life is never boring. Having a heart to reach other families similar to theirs, Crystal is building a ministry and non-profit geared toward foster/adoptive families and families of children with special needs. Technically, she is a stay-at-home mom, but between medical appointments, volunteering, and organizing community partnerships for the church, there is very little time spent at home. Having a busy, never dull home, she understands the need to connect with other ladies who have been there and done that. She also knows the value of walking alongside someone new on this journey. She doesn't have it all figured out, but enjoys the process and the relationships built along the way.

Pastors' Wives in the Midst of Transition or Anticipating It

2nd Wednesday at 11:00am EST/10:00am CST/8:00am PST

Heather, her pastor husband Scott, and their three children moved from the busyness and beauty of the Seattle area where they had served in ministry for nearly 17 years, to a small farming community in Illinois just over a year ago. Although the transition induced culture shock on lots of hilarious levels, Heather is enjoying catching a glimpse of the breathtaking lifestyle some of her favorite leading women, Anne Voskamp and The Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond, have always bragged about. Small town life is crazy different than what Heather was accustomed to in Seattle, but she appreciates the charm and fun in each place she has lived, and each ministry their family has served in.

Being fresh from a journey of major life changing transition Heather seeks to encourage other Pastors' wives who might be on the cusp of a transition in ministry, either big or small, to discern carefully and step boldly into God’s future calling. Heather also has a passion to help equip and encourage women to guide their families well through seasons of transition. Most importantly, Heather desires for Pastors' wives to not be alone during transition, but to have a network of stable community to pray for and support each other during this unique season. Heather is a proud Pastor's wife, a Momma to one High School student, one Junior High student and one little cutie heading off to preschool for the first time in the fall (sniff!) Heather also writes professionally for an environmental journal distributed globally. Heather loves Jesus, reading scripture, a good latte, coffee dates with her husband, and encouraging others in Jesus' name. “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

Pastors' Wives & Women in Ministry Who May Be Experiencing Difficulty Personally or in Ministry

4th Wednesday at 2:00pm EST/11:00am PST

I am a pastor’s wife, mother and professional counselor. We have been honored to serve through many ministry positions throughout the years in Memphis, TN a and Louisville, KY. My husband currently is a director with CrossRoads Missions, and I am currently a distance counselor (via Skype) with Restoration Path Counseling Ministries. God has led us through struggles and fractures in ministry and personally. We also have navigated through the diagnosis of cancer twice for my husband. God has always been beside us and many times carried us through life storms. I am naturally drawn to those who may be experiencing difficulty in ministry, marriage or personal life. I may not have answers, but I am a good listener and know all answers are found in Christ. It would be my honor to have you join our ConnectLIVE group.

Women in Ministry Leadership Roles

3rd Thursday at 8:00pm EST/5:00pm PST

I am the luckiest girl in the land to be married to my husband James & "mommy" to my two little men, Ethan & Hayden. While I've been blessed to serve in many areas of ministry over the last 20 years, my heart's passion is to journey along side of women in a manner that allows them to grow in their relationship with God. After spending the last 6 years in Women's Ministry leadership, God has called to me to serve in a new capacity as a Professional Christian Life Coach for women. It's a joy and privilege to partner with them as they press into the deeper waters that God is stirring within. A few quirky facts: I love coffee, sunrises (here's where the coffee comes in handy), great conversation, new books, everything about the fall season, and as a CA girl who has landed herself in east TN, I am learning to love the color orange.

A little bit about me: I met my husband while serving on middle school youth staff back in 2000. We have been working with middle school, high school, and young adults together ever since. He was hired on as the official youth pastor at our church in Portland, OR in 2009. It was through volunteering with students that I found my passion for helping others. This led me to return to school and pursue my Masters of Arts in Counseling degree. I now have a Christian private practice in Vancouver, Washington. I love meeting with people, hearing their stories, and being able to help process difficulties in life. I also love to celebrate with others in their success and growth.

I believe that God led me “to a time such as this” to minister to encourage, equip, empower and teach women to experience a radical life-changing relationship with Jesus. My mission is to model Jesus Christ through relationships and ministries and to challenge them in building a devotional and prayer life for Jesus, and be used to uplift His Kingdom to others. I am a wife of the Church Elder and mother to four wonderful young men. Most importantly, I am a Child of God. My joy is found in allowing the Holy Spirit to use me to work with and empower women, as I mentor them in Christ, showing them how we can be all that God wants us to be as we walk in the footsteps of Christ. God has given me a prayer and teaching ministry, while allowing me to be a mouthpiece for Him. He has brought me through trials and tribulation so that I can relate to others. I have so much to thank Him for. I realized in my high school years that God was calling me into the ministry. I attended Moody Bible Institute, along with various training from Children and Youth ministry to teaching and training within the church. My training with Precept ministry, changed my life, even more and re-ignited a passion within me to reach out and teach and speak to women and others.

A little bit about Michele- I married my high school sweetheart, Ernie Willis, in 1992. I felt just as called to be a pastor's wife in high school as he felt called to be a pastor. Over 24 years later, we have 3 children...2 boys (the biological way) and 1 daughter (through the miracle of international adoption). I was a music major in college and help with worship ministry at our church. I'm an adoption advocate and Alabama and Packer football fanatic. I"m a work from home mom as a jewelry lady with Premier Designs Jewelry and currently take care of my 84 year old mother who lives with us as she has Alzheimer's. Leading and Loving it has been a blessing to me as I've always felt in over 20 years of ministry that there is a need for a ministry to pastor's wives!

Our Leading & Loving It Connect Group focus is very specific for spouses of lead pastors and women who are lead pastors. If this portfolio fits you, you're coming to the right place to connect. We meet on the third Tuesday of each month.

Our group is in the Sacramento area of Northern California. Please contact me at barbiekallevig@yahoo.com for more information.

Meet at 9756 Club Park Drive Elk Grove, CA 95757

Here is a special, personal invitation from Barbara! "My experience in full time ministry spans over 35 years. For the past 25 years, my primary focus had been the spouse of a Lead Pastor. Because of the diverse challenges I faced as wife, mother, church leader and worked outside the church and home full-time, I had learned to balance a healthy perspective on ministry, marriage and family.

If you are involved as a Lead Pastor or the spouse of a Lead Pastor, join us so we can all grow together, strengthening each other. One of the biggest questions that go unanswered in ministry is "What is normal?" We can answer that question...nothing. So come and share with us; here we can learn how to be normal in a calling that can be extremely abnormal. Come and be our guest. We look forward to having you with us."

Jesus lover Manager at Hix Household. Member of Legacy Church in Novi, MI. Speaker and Co-Founder of Soft Warriors. Approved Leader in the Redemption Network. Leading & Loving It ConnectLocal Group Leader. Helped plant The Avenue Church (Delray Beach, FL) and served as Director of Women's Ministry & Outreach Events. Served as Outreach Coordinator at Spanish River Church (Boca Raton, FL).

Originally from Queens, New York, Allison Good moved to south Florida in 2002. On Christmas Eve of 2004, she became a believer in Jesus Christ. Shortly thereafter, she began serving vocationally in fulltime church ministry, and continued for ten years until September of 2015. In October of 2015, she married and moved to Michigan to serve with her husband Jon Hix, Lead Pastor of Legacy Church in Novi.

In addition to her love for Jesus, His word, community, reading, writing, traveling, loudly laughing, crying, delicious coffee and the outdoors, and now marriage, Allison loves to spend time encouraging and challenging others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and witnessing the God stories that follow.

Her passion for pointing women and their families to Jesus for authentic beauty, identity, and worth, emerged to her own surprise from her greatest adversities. Through her own battles with addiction and abuse, and her ministry experience in these areas, Allison loves nothing more than to watch God transform people as they discover the truth about His Son. Having experienced the freedom that comes with this transformation, it is now her great joy to share this hope with everyone she can.

Through her diverse experiences and responsibilities with Spanish River Church and multiple church plants from Croatia to Haiti to Deerfield and Delray Beach, Allison discovered her ministry calling and had her gifting confirmed by others. Known for being the Recovery and Halfway House capital of the country, Delray Beach especially involved her in a story bigger than her own.

Allison especially enjoys encouraging and equipping pastors’ wives and women in ministry. She is currently writing a Soft Warriors workbook.

4to Jueves (4th Thursday) 9pm EST/6pm PST

Misty ha vivido la mayor parte de su vida en los EE.UU. en el estado de Virginia. A los 14 años, Misty empezó a hacer viajes misioneros a Mexicali, México. No solamente aprendió el español y conoció a su esposo a esa temprana edad, sino durante esos viajes Dios le puso una pasión por la cultura hispana.

Juntos, Misty y su esposo, Daniel, comenzaron su ministerio para alcanzar a gente de habla hispana en el 2004. Después de 7 años dirigiendo el ministerio Latino de una iglesia americana, ese ministerio se convirtió en su propia iglesia, que hoy en día se llama La Red.

La Red está ubicada en la ciudad de Washington, DC, y tiene la visión de impactar a la comunidad hispana en los EE.UU. Misty juega un papel importante en La Red, siendo primeramente el apoyo de su esposo, organizando y compartiendo en los eventos de mujeres y predicando en La Red de vez en cuando. Su corazón es poder comunicar a cada mujer Latina de esta generación que Dios tiene un gran llamado sobre su vida! Al descubrir a Dirigiendo con Amor, Misty supo que quería ser parte de animar a otras pastoras y mujeres del ministerio que no están solas y que pueden disfrutar la jornada que Dios les ha encomendado.

All Pastors' Wives/Ministry Wives

3rd Wednesday at 2:30pm EST/11:30am PST

If you would have asked me when I was in high school if I thought I would marry a minister some day, my answer would have been NO! And for the first 3 times my husband asked me out, my answer was NO! But God knew what He was doing far better than I. We have now been married for almost 10 years and have been in ministry since before the day we said "I Do". My husband, Tyler, is a student minister in a church in southwestern Indiana. I am a part time RN and a full time mommy to our two incredible boys, Lincoln and Finley. I also serve along side my husband in his ministry. We have been through some ugly times in ministry and through some incredible seasons of joy. We have learned a lot along the way. It was because of my first ConnectLive group that I was able to move past some of the greatest hurt and find the joy in ministry again. I would love for you to join me in getting to know some other incredible ministry wives. To share life and advice, to offer prayer and encouragement, and to find a safe place to grow as we figure out together what being married to a minister is all about and how our roles as working women or stay at home moms or both play in to it all.

In addition to being her husband Paul's number one cheerleader, she is mama to Natalie and Isaac and works full time as a Physical Therapist. Tara loves dispelling the notion that a pastor's wife has it all together. She tries to lead out of her own brokenness so that others can feel like they can be real and honest with her about their own struggles rather than feeling like they have to "dress up" their problems or their past.

Wadeney (Wendy) Lockhart lives in Toronto, Canada. She is the Founder of She Aspires and the Editor-in-Chief of the Aspiring Woman magazine. She has also worked in the property management field, in leadership and support roles, for the past 15 years.

Wendy believes that a strong, intimate and powerful relationship with God is the key to a fulfilled and purposeful life. She is passionate about God and the power of His words. She is passionate about seeing women cultivate a deep heart for God and aspire to greater things for God in life and business/ministry.

Outside of her work and her ministry, Wendy is an avid writer of fiction and poetry, a lover of adventurous things like skydiving, a sweets and desserts freak (in moderation) and a hater of injustice. She has also spent four years in the Canadian armed forces.

This ConnectLIVE Group is for women leaders and/or business owners who lead in a non-church ministry, such as a business or non-profit. We hope to build community and connections as we pray for, grow with and learn from each other.

Our first meeting will be a short, informal get-to-know-you in early December. And our first official meeting will be in January 2017.

All Lead Pastors’ Wives

1st Wednesday at10am

When: 1st Wednesday bi-monthly Time: 10:00am Who: Pastors’ Wives What: Fellowship Where: The Cause Church 6800 Deerpath Road Elkridge, MD

My husband and I loved youth ministry for 17 years. Being a PK, I vowed to never be a pastor's wife. But now we've been the lead pastor's at a church replant for 6 years. I know the loneliness that this position can sometimes bring and so I love to encourage others and share ideas and stories. I truly believe we are better together.

All Church Planters & Pastors' Wives

Holly Myers is a pastor's wife, mom of two teen girls, church planter, speaker and ministry leader. Holly serves the Kingdom in many capacities born from a burden of her own life experiences. Holly was led down a long path of pain and destruction through her struggles with self-image, food addiction, and understanding who she was in Christ. When Holly surrendered to God’s grace, her past ultimately drew her closer to the Creator and she finally experienced freedom. Because Christ has set her free from bondage, she recognized a calling to speak to girls and women that may share her same story. Today, Holly shares her story at conferences and events all over the United States as a Clayton King Ministries speaker. She and her husband, Richard, also lead a church plant, Revolution Church in North Carolina. At the church she serves as Founder and President of Unbound Ministries.

All Women in Ministry & Ministry Wives

2nd Wednesday at 11:30am EST/8:30am PST

The summer following my sophomore year in college I answered the call God placed on my heart to go into vocational ministry. This was long before I ever met my husband, and while I knew I was headed into ministry, it was a desire to one day be in ministry together with the man I would be married to. Well, over 14 years later I find myself in a completely different place than I ever envisioned! My path to vocational ministry was anything but ordinary and it’s one I’m still on. God blessed me with an amazing husband, and while we are now in ministry together, it doesn’t look anything like what I thought it would. But, God’s ways are best and I am beyond grateful for the opportunities that He has given us to serve together! Andy and I both work for Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a non-profit sports ministry. Andy is also bi-vocational and works as an on-air personality for a local Christian TV station. We have two wonderful kids, Nathan and Anna whom we were blessed with through adoption. I am currently pursuing my Masters in professional counseling as God has used my personal journey of struggles, hurts, and healing to birth a deep heart, passion, and desire to minister to women through counseling and discipleship. I would love to have you join me in this opportunity to do life together in a safe place where we can grow, share, pray with and for each other, let our guards down and just be real. Ladies, we all know life is sometimes hard and downright messy, but thankfully God didn’t intend for us to do it alone! I’m excited to get to know some amazing women and look forward to doing life together!

Rachel Dell's ConnectLIVE Group

January 1st - December 31st, 2017

Pastors' Wives who volunteer in the church where their husband is Lead Pastor or Church Planter

1st Tuesday at 10:00am EST/7:00am PST

Rachel is married to her husband Mark. Mark is the lead Pastor (only paid staff) which keeps her very busy too. Rachel grew up in a church where she was taught deeply about the word of God, and where she felt led by the Lord to evangelize through singing, drama, teaching children, and missions. Since college, (more than 20 years) Rachel continued her love to serve by being involved in leadership -from discipling youth and college-career aged, to mentoring women and leading women's Bible studies. Rachel also has a passion for worshipping through singing and drama. With the responsibilities of a church plant, currently Rachel is the Children's director, hosts a small group in their home, leads the women's Bible study, sings on the worship team, and assists in church set up (mobile church). If you are a pastors wife, you know this list is not at all a "bragging" list, but a portion outlining what the Lord has called she and her family to do - for this time. And you will know the necessity of having other women you can share and pray together with. :) Rachel is mother to 3 children, homeschools, and enjoys gardening, running/walking, mt. biking, dark chocolate, coffee, reading Historical fiction novels, thrifting, and re-creating wood furniture pieces.

Noelle Adams' ConnectLIVE Group

January 1st - December 31st, 2017

Single Women in Full Time Ministry

2nd Wednesday at 10:00pm EST/7:00pm PST

I have been born and raised in a pastors home. I watched the joys and the struggles that go along with being in full time ministry and knew that there was nothing else that I wanted to give my life to. Graduated from Simpson University and then jumped right into pastoral leadership. I now plan events, lead worship, run ministry camps and lead conferences at my church. Being single in full time ministry isn't easy, but I know that the Lord is good and that His timing is perfect in everything.
