The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League has historically viewed effective leadership training as part of fulfilling the LWML mission statement and, therefore, hosts a training event every four years.
This year’s event, Inspiration 2012 under the theme PING, presented practical leadership ideas, inspiration, and hands-on activities to help district leaders communicate with the men and women in their congregations and share the enthusiasm they have for the valuable work of the LWML.
Two hundred women comprised of district LWML presidents, committee members, and two district representatives assembled at the Crowne Plaza Airport Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri, from Friday, October 19, to Sunday, October 21. Following their involvement in Inspiration 2012, these women are returning to their districts with a plan and a commitment – Prepared, Inspired, Nourished, and ready to Go share the heart of the LWML.
