We are working hard to get the word out that there's a supportive community available to faith-based, female entrepreneurs, a community they can call their own
SUFFOLK, VA, December 28, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In partnership with its sister organization, She Steps Forward Ministries, She Steps Forward International, a faith-based, nondenominational nonprofit operating across the United States and Africa, is set to re-connect in-person with faith-based, female entrepreneurs in the United States as it hosts the She Steps Forward without Fear Conference, scheduled March 24-25, 2023, in Chesapeake, Virginia. The nonprofit serves to empower and equip everyday women with an entrepreneurial spirit to launch a business, ministry, or nonprofit that positively impacts their communities.
This year's conference theme is 'She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future' – Proverbs 31:25. Elaine A. Lankford, the visionary founder of She Steps Forward International and She Steps Forward Ministries, says: "We are super excited to be hosting our fourth annual conference in March 2023 in-person after having to go virtual for the past two years. The 2023 conference brings some exciting changes. Prior to conference, She Steps Forward International will be providing female entrepreneurs a chance to obtain seed money funding! Three grants will be awarded during the conference. We will also be supporting various female-led organizations by providing vendor opportunities at conference. In addition, we are welcoming the business community at large to become conference sponsors and advertise their businesses to our conference attendees when they financially support the conference."
Lankford is also excited that She Steps Forward International and the She Steps Forward International Women's Conference will be featured in the local news February 2023. The organization will be highlighted on WVEC Channel 13's Making a Mark segment February 2nd and on WAVY-TV 10's Sunday Sitdown segment February 5th.
"We are working hard to get the word out that there's a supportive community available to faith-based, female entrepreneurs, a community they can call their own," says Lankford.
She Steps Forward International 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.
"I have a firm belief that God has a distinct call on each woman's life which only they alone can fulfill," explains Elaine Lankford. "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."
The She Steps Forward International Women's Conference provides women a chance to learn from other faith-based, female leaders who are trailblazers in their own right and offers attendees a time to reflect and consider how they might step forward into their own calling. Elaine continues: "These women of faith 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 grow together and discover all that God has for us."
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."
In addition to the conference, She Steps Forward International will be hosting quarterly events throughout the year focused on topics such as life balance, Biblical literacy, and mentoring. She Steps Forward International's sister organization, SSM offers a Bible-based mentoring group that helps women fully comprehend the true essence of the scriptures and their God-given purpose.
Lastly, Elaine is available for one-on-one coaching for women ready to reach the next level in their faith-based business or ministry.
