LWML Resources -
Heart to Heart Sisters
The purpose of the Heart to Heart Sisters Committee is to
- motivate, equip, and ensure opportunities for women of diverse ethnic groups to serve the church, participate in LWML, witness to the world, and grow in relationships as sisters in Christ
- produce and facilitate the H2H program for the LWML convention
The LWML recognizes there are gifted ethnic women serving with joy and passion in many ethnic-specific ministries throughout the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Because of the nature of ethnic-specific ministry, many of these women leaders are unfamiliar with the culture of the LCMS and LWML.
We are committed to assisting LWML Districts in establishing Heart to Heart Sisters programs so ethnic women may mutually encourage one another, support each other, and work together, living out the beautiful diversity that is the body of Christ.
At the 2015 Des Moines LWML Convention, we will host our second training of district leaders who will lead district Heart to Heart Sisters programs. We are excited about the opportunity to support, network, and encourage these women.
