Wise Well Woman Summit 2024

Rethink I Reprioritise I Renewal

Join us at the Wise WELL Woman Summit as we celebrate 1st century women in the context of the 21st century and explore the meaningful ways faith can enhance our leadership. Excelling in the workplace should not be hindered by the burden of broken relationships, shame from failure, poor choices, or a myriad of other factors. Together, we will delve into Biblical wisdom and foundational truth which will empower and equip you to thrive in both life and vocation. So if you are asking yourself how can women of faith further distinguish themselves in their workplace and community, or how do we keep pace with the overwhelming pressure of workplace and community culture, or how do we make the right choices, then read on.

 

Following the inter-testamental period and the 400 years of silence, the long- awaited Messiah is introduced to us in the New Testament through the books of Mathew and Mark.  This revelation brilliantly brings forth women specifically chosen by God to play a vital role in the narrative of Jesus, including Mary, the Mother of Jesus, Elizabeth, and Anna.

Subsequently, we encounter numerous women whom Jesus spiritually, mentally, and emotionally uplifted alongside his disciples. These include the Samaritan woman, Mary Magdalene, Mary of Bethany, and Martha, among others. During Paul's journey, we encounter formidable women like Priscilla, Lydia, and Phoebe. Throughout the Summit, these women's stories will be retold through a 21st-century lens, delving into the Christian values that underpin the imperatives of Christian leadership.

 

This incredible women's leadership conference will begin with an Evening Worship Celebration (free and ticketed event) on Friday, March 15th, 2024, which will set the stage and align your spiritual compass for the full-day conference on Saturday, March 16th, 2024. The Evening Worship Celebration will be open to all in order to celebrate allyship and honour the women in our lives whose stories inherently reflect the narratives of New Testament women.

 

The full-day conference on Saturday, March 16th will feature three keynotes/plenary sessions grounded in theology, experiential stories, and Bible-based practical workshops, amidst a backdrop of networking, praying, healing, and worship. Throughout the day, we will explore powerful questions on faith and leadership.

 

Take part as we tap into the endless wisdom of the Bible and kingdom principles in order to help you live and lead with Biblical leadership values. Along the way, you will hear from inspiring women leaders of faith who will share their stories, tools, and resources to help you overcome challenges and thrive in your career and community. A majority of the speakers are women who have ministries alongside their careers or businesses.

 

So, grab your girlfriends, aunts, sisters, female colleagues, mother, niece, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, grandmother, granddaughter and dedicate a couple of special days getting filled up with the truth.

 

Don’t miss this chance to connect with women of all walks of life, gain insights from diverse perspectives and cultures, and be empowered by the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit.​

 

If you are unable to attend in person in London, sign up for the Watch Party and we will release a curated online event just for you.

  5. Lunch 

  6. Come alive on God’s dance floor (led by Kimberley Pena) - In a society where the female body is often shamed, suppressed and manipulated, this Dance Movement Psychotherapy experiential workshop aims to rebuild our relationship with our bodies, as the subject, not the object of our lives. Through a focus on the release of pain, both psychological and physiological, we can navigate away from ‘burn out’ state. This session invites you to reconnect with your core-self and God-driven purpose, using dance as the vessel of expression and healing. Responding to the call:’ Dance, then, wherever you may be, I am the Lord of the dance, said He’. No previous dance experience necessary, just permission to move oneself and be moved

  7. Interactive Keynote (led by Kalpana Dein) - Emotionally healthy people often have one thing in common. They have known what it is to be loved. We all crave love, to experience it and to share it, but what is love? To some it is synonymous with romance and intimacy. To others it is the warmth of a parent's affection, or the special fondness they have for their children. In this session, we will explore 2 key elements of our being, namely love and identity, through the interwoven lens of science; and one of the most influential books ever written, the Bible

  8. Sozo – a quick introduction to healing & prayer

  10. Workshops (choose one of three - see below)

Discovering and growing the Leader in you – increasing your potential

‘Yet you, Lord are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand’ Isaiah 64 v 8

Workshop description:

Each one of us has been created with a unique identity and purpose to lead and to follow. Leadership is not a title or a role, it is a journey without an end, and it starts with:

- Growing in the knowledge of who God has created us to be, Knowing ourselves, our potential - strengths and areas of development, developing resilience.

- Developing, managing and valuing the relationships we have around us and our environment.

 

During this workshop we will explore:

  • Developing our self-awareness, self-management, social awareness – how attentive am I to others, relationship management – building healthy relationships.​

  • Building resilience with the right focus and energy.

Presenters: Elizabeth Olujimi & Kirubai Kohout 

Bringing the FRUIT to work in confidence

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law” (Galatians 5:22-23).

Workshop description:

The fruit of the Spirit are nine-character traits: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Every Christian leader in the workplace has access to these traits because they are the products of the Holy Spirit.

When Jesus Christ walked on this earth, he lived out these traits in His everyday life, and we are to strive to do the same as we mature in him. Displaying and manifesting the Fruit of the Spirit in the workplace is important as we are called to be the vessel that will shine through in the world that is filled with darkness.

 

During the workshop, we will explore:

  • Confidence to show up in the workplace with godly character.

  • Highlighting the relevance of the fruit of the spirit in the workplace.

  • Being better communicators of the fruits in action.

  • The world needs women leaders with stronger character to build and influence amidst confusion.

Presenter: Jamie Phear

Tuning into God's voice for calling and purpose
 

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he has planned for us” Ephesians 2:10

Workshop description:

In a world that is increasingly noisy and a culture that is full of distractions and demands, it can be really difficult to tune out the noise and tune into God’s voice. In truth, each one of us is uniquely designed to bring God’s kingdom to earth and He equips us with distinctive gifts and skills to fulfill his purposes. 

 

During the workshop, we will explore:

  • calling and purpose in tangible ways and open the door to vision mapping for God’s unique calling on your life. 

  • discerning kingdom wisdom in both life and vocation and learn how to partner with God to step into new spaces of calling with intention and confidence in 2024. God deeply desires for each of us to walk firmly in the purposes he has for us!
