Leading effectively is not something that you wake up one morning and just know how to do intuitively, and yet, we are ALL called to lead!

“Leadership is Influence”

We are excited to come to Prince George and share the lessons that we have learned about what it takes to craft a mandate, set the perimeters and then bring it to life.

M3 - Mandate Margins and Making it Happen is about helping you become an effective leader who knows what to focus on and how to get there. Over 6 sessions we will take you on a journey through the Word of God that will fuse leadership principles and a biblical worldview into a cohesive understanding of what it takes to influence and impact our culture with the gospel.

Speaker Lineup:


Krista Penner

Krista serves as the as Team Lead for Leadership Development for Fellowship Pacific, a group of churches across BC and the Yukon. Leverage Women is an initiative of Fellowship Pacific that aims to inspire, equip and connect women leaders cross denominationally. Krista is part of the team that teaches leadership skills and ministers to women from every walk of life, who desire to lead in the places God has called them.
Leadership encompasses a vision while also enabling others to act on that vision. Krista will take us on a journey of understanding how to implement Mission and Vision in two sessions focused on Making it Happen.    

Krista lives in Mission BC with her husband Jerome and together they have watched their three children launch into life with a love for Jesus and a homing device that brings them back to the kitchen table as often as their busy lives will allow.


Josie Peters

Josie Peters is a business owner, wife, and advocate for the modern woman to help her understand the word of God as she navigates the different seasons of life.  Her passion is for women to be equipped for the battle and transformed for Christ, experiencing Him in three-dimensions and technicolor.  Born in Cape Town and raised in Canada, this global perspective is something she brings in to both work and ministry.  She and her husband Josiah both work in the design industry and enjoy the everyday stuff of marriage, travelling, and seeking to grow closer to God as they live life together.

As the youngest member of the Leverage teaching team, Josie brings a fresh perspective on the relevance of the bible as she applies timeless biblical truth to the ever changing landscape of our culture.

Lisa has been involved in growing and equipping teams for Youth, Young Adults and Women’s Ministry and her ministry sweet spot is discipling others.  With her degree in psychology Lisa has a deep understanding of human behaviour and how this effects our relationships with each other and with God. Lisa is passionate about helping people bridge the gap between when they know to be true and how they live.
