Economic freedom allows us to better practice the lesson of stewardship through cooperation and trade with one another. When women create the space and opportunity to support one another, an effective community culture of flourishing ideas are created within our respective arenas.

Join other female pastors and female church leaders as we come together to understand and support one another through a growing network that integrates faith, work and economic wisdom for self-enrichment and the flourishing of our families, churches and communities.

Join us for a time such as this to empower our sisterhood and improve the wellness of our community.

"Pope Francis expounds on the cost of excluding African Americans and others from the economy, writing, "Until exclusion and inequality in society (and in the economy) and between peoples is reversed, it will be impossible to eliminate violence...When a society - Whether local, national or global - is willing to leave a part of itself on the fringes, no political programs or resources spent on law enforcement or surveillance systems can indefinitely guarantee tranquility." (Luke Bobo, Race, Economics and Apologetics: Is there A Connection?)

We are partnering with the monthly Pastors Dialogue on Racism, Poverty and Violence for this event. Also, as part of their Community Week, the Newport News Police Department Academy Recruits and the Academy Training Staff will be joining us.
