‘She Steps Forward with Grace’ is a virtual conference emphasizing leadership development with the primary aim of empowering today’s women to grow in their faith and their gifting.
SUFFOLK, VA, March 25, 2021 /Neptune100/ — In partnership with its sister organization, Transforming Love Ministries, She Steps Forward, a faith-based, nondenominational nonprofit operating across the United States and Africa, is all set to host the She Steps Forward with Grace Conference, scheduled on Friday, March 26th. The nonprofit serves to empower and equip women of today to fulfill their God-given destinies.
This year’s virtual conference theme is ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness’ – 2 Corinthians 12:9. “We are super excited to be hosting our second annual conference in March 2021 after the success of our first international conference in Nairobi, Kenya held in February of 2020. This year’s ‘She Steps Forward’ conference, consisting of eight inspirational teaching sessions and one powerful worship session, is explicitly designed to encourage women who wish to step into or continue their calling gracefully. Leaning on God’s grace is essential for them to achieve their primary objectives and bring transformation in the lives of others. We hope that this conference will sow seeds of faith that they are called for this time in history to do great things for God,” says Elaine A. Lankford, the visionary founder of She Steps Forward and Transforming Love Ministries.
Lankford is on a mission to transform the hearts and minds of those who need to believe they are who God says they are. She works to inspire women everywhere to find their God-given voice and to assist these uniquely gifted hearts in creating viable, sustainable paths for their businesses and/or ministries. Allowing women to answer the call on their life helps to bring about transformational change in the lives of those they serve. ‘Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms’ – 1 Peter 4:10.
“I have a firm belief that God has a distinct call on each woman’s life which only they alone can fulfill. All I do is serve as a bridge, connecting these women of faith to their purpose in life, while growing them into tomorrow’s leaders,” says Elaine Lankford.
The ‘She Steps Forward annual conference provides women with a hands-on learning experience by local female leaders, offering them a pathway to move forward with their call from God. “Keeping the word of God in mind, existing female leaders will be sharing their gifts with conference attendees, allowing them to shatter the glass ceiling and respond to the divine call on their life. We welcome women with an entrepreneurial spirit from any community to join us for this two-day conference as we rejoice together in the love of God, while discovering His ultimate glory and purpose in our lives,” says Elaine Lankford.
Elaine has been endowed with a Godly vision that is transparent in her ministry’s work. She holds her Christian values close to her heart and remains laser-focused on Biblical truth, emphasizing the significance of a unified community that is prayer-focused. ‘And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching’ – Hebrews 10:24-25.
Elaine remains at the forefront of assisting everyday women in chasing God-sized dreams by bridging the gap between their vision and their destiny. “My vision is to strengthen the spirits and minds of everyday women in active pursuit of their God-given destinies–one business, one ministry, one nonprofit at a time.”
She Steps Forward’s sister organization, TLM, runs a Bible-based mentoring group that helps women fully comprehend the true essence of the scriptures and their God-given purpose. TLM also has a private, online Facebook community that provides weekly guidance through various topics while fostering true sisterhood. There are also quarterly events, followed by four-week educational sessions, which focus on areas such as life balance, Biblical literacy, and mentoring.
Elaine is available for one-on-one coaching for women ready to reach the next level in their faith-based business or ministry.
