About the conference

Lead Together

It’s time for women and men together to rediscover God’s vision for shared leadership in the Church and Christian ministry.

When we lead together, we see the family of God restored.

When we lead together, we learn a new vocabulary for mission.

When we lead together, we better reflect the person of Christ.

When we lead together, we more fully embody Jesus’ gospel.

Out of these convictions, Missio Alliance has created the SheLeads Summit.

The Summit exists to encourage and equip our sisters and to welcome our brothers as we imagine together where God is leading His Church, for the blessing of the nations.

Will you join us for this honest, grace-filled, and hopeful conversation?

Book Launch

The Summit is the book launch for Emboldened: A Vision for Empowering Women in Ministry by Tara Beth Leach, published by InterVarsity press. Women are central to the mission of God. Tara Beth Leach, senior pastor of her denomination’s flagship church, issues a stirring call for a new generation of women in ministry: to teach, to preach, to shepherd, and to lead. Providing practical advice and encouragement, Leach shows how God not only permits women to minister—he emboldens, empowers, and unleashes them to lead out of the fullness of who they are.
