From the Back Cover

You can lead a dynamic women's ministry

If you have helped a sick neighbor or prayed for a friend's troubled marriage, you have done ministry. But leading women's ministry takes more than just a kind heart. In Connecting Women, Linda Lesniewski shows you how you can be a vital part of God's work among women.

Building on a foundation of Bible study and prayer, Connecting Women gives practical suggestions for starting a new ministry, enhancing an existing one, and working with women from all walks of life. It also offers clear directives for
• nurturing your own spiritual life
• following church protocol
• negotiating for ministry
• partnering with other churches
• budgeting
• equipping leaders
• and keeping ministry fresh and creative

Whether you are a ministry veteran or are just starting your journey into serving God in a leadership role, this inspiring book will be an invaluable resource.

"Conversational, practical, and personal, Connecting Women is a valuable tool for women serving other women. Linda Lesniewski shares real leadership helps for real women in the real world. This book is for women who want to grow healthy relationships as they interact with male leadership and nurture spiritual sisters and team members in the local church."--Paula Hemphill, women's mobilization consultant, International Mission Board, SBC

"Men and women alike will benefit by reading Linda's newest book as she spells out principles through stories of real people who have accepted the challenges of ministry through the local church. Her understanding of the power of conversation, the keys to communicating with men and women, and leading through listening is invaluable for all of us serving in organizations."--Fred Smith, president, The Gathering

Format: Paperback
Linda Lesniewski's book for women in leadership is an excellent tool. She uses her years in a church leadership position to encourage women to move forward in leading other women. Every woman in a leadership position with women should read her book and pass it on.
