Our Purpose

We honor Christian Women of Distinction that seek faith-based solutions to modern day challenges. …for such a time as this.

Though seldom seen or thanked, we seek to identify those women throughout our great State that are a strong and steady voice for good that help families thrive, organizations flourish, and communities connect.

We are a State Chapter of She Leads America, a dynamic and diverse organization representing hundreds of accomplished Christian women leaders who pray together, and collaborate to share resources, divine strategies, relationships, and opportunities to serve the Lord with excellence and with honor.

To God be all the glory!
