Leadership Development

Where Leadership and Missions Meet

When WMU established the WMU Training School in 1907 in Louisville, Kentucky, to train women for Christian ministry and missions, it embarked on the task of equipping women for the sake of the Gospel.

Today, we stand committed to walk alongside women, students, men, and all missions leaders in their leadership development. Our desire is to help you create an environment in your church that keeps the Great Commission Priority and mobilizes all ages to live on mission.

  • If you have a new leader that needs orientation and training, call us to set up a one-on-one training.
  • If you are a leader of leaders, call us to setup a regional or associational pop-up training.
  • If you lead on an Associational or Local Church level, join us at LeadWell.
  • If you are an individual seeking personal development, the Christian Women’s Leadership Center and our Online Training sessions can enrich your leadership skills.
