I’m thrilled to announce that Gifted for Leadership has a new look and a new home.
If you’ve visited this site in the past, you’ll notice our makeover—an updated design and a sleeker site.
What you may not notice as readily is that we are now officially hosted as part of the Leadership Journal website. Back when we launched in 2007, the quickest way to get started was to create a blog. It worked, but it meant that ever since, we have been housed in a small blog platform, the Internet equivalent of living in the garden shed out back. While were welcome at the table for every meal, it wasn’t quite the same as actually living in the house. Now we’ve officially moved into the house and made ourselves right at home. Because Gifted for Leadership is part of the Leadership Journal family of resources supporting the ministry of church leaders, it’s only fitting.
What does this transition mean for you, our readers? I hope you’ll find that our content is easier to search and navigate. It’s also indexed by the same keywording system used for Leadership Journal, and because we now live under the same roof, a search on Gifted for Leadership will produce matching results among our articles, Leadership Journal’s content, and all of Christianity Today’s publications.
Ultimately, these changes are designed to help us offer better support, encouragement, and connection to women in church ministry. If you’re new to this site (and even if you’re not), let me explain what we’re here for.
Gifted for Leadership is a resource providing community, encouragement, and practical tools for women leaders in the global church. We exist to equip, encourage, challenge, and unite women who exercise leadership gifts in church ministry. We also seek to build community among such women, who can challenge and support each other and grow together. We want to serve not only established leaders, but also the next generation of women who will engage their leadership gifts in the church.
We believe that people who have the spiritual gift of leadership are called to lead, not for their own benefit, but for the sake of nurturing the body of Christ. Women with leadership gifts, as with all gifts, are obligated to use those gifts in the ways and the places God has called them to. Thanks for using your gifts, and thanks for being part of our ministry!
