Spring 2015 Training Event

Spring 2015 Training Event

Reaching beyond where we are comfortable does not

happen on accident.

If we don't extend our reach on purpose,

it won't happen at all.



Every leader's influence reaches into her home and out to her church and community. But how do MOPS leaders extend their reach?


Extending your reach requires:

  • inspiration
  • discovery,
  • investment,
  • persistence,
  • and gracious generosity.



MOPS Leaders, you are in a unique position to reach the moms who can change their world. We can help you do it. Let’s dig in together at Extend Your Reach – where you’ll discover new things about life and leadership, strengthen your foundation, discuss how to be graciously persistent in relationships and focus on new ways to create a group that allows moms to do all those same things for themselves.


This event is tailor-made for you and hosted by your local MOPS Coach.


Our Michigan event will be April 17 & 18 in Lansing. More information and registration can be found here -- https://www.eventbrite.com/e/michigan-mops-spring-leadership-training-event-registration-15428890226

Spring Means Time to Renew

General renewal information:
Beginning April 1, churches will receive charter renewal information. The cost to renew groups at your church is $159, no matter how many groups your church charters, but only until June 30. After that, it will be $199. Encourage your Pastor or Womens' Ministry Coordinator to take care of your group's renewal right away.

More information about the theme, Group Experience Kits and Mom Memberships will also be available April 1.
