We want to simply help leaders "lead well" in the area that God has called them. Bringing both Associational WMU and local church WMU teams together provides a unique opportunity to develop leadership skills and provide enrichment experiences in all WMU missions discipleship areas.
Lead Well resources leaders who have accepted the invitation to lead in missions in their church or on the associational level. Participating in Lead Well helps to strengthen your leadership skills and expand one's view of WMU in a broader scope. This training program provides an annual training event, online workshops for continuous learning, and a blog for helpful tips for both the Associational and local church level.



You will have training at your finger tips with Lead Well On-the-Go page. You will also receive periodic emails with great tips and helpful information. 

In Person

Each year, we will provide multiple in-person event locations full of workshops and resources to help you lead well in your area of leadership. These events will be identical.
