Leverage Leadership Summit

  • Coast Tsawwassen Inn 1665 56 Street Delta, BC, V4L 2A9 Canada (map)



“Leadership is Influence”

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!


We are excited to come together in Tsawwassen 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. 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.

Where: Coast Tsawwassen Inn - 1665 56 St, Delta, BC V4L 2B2

When: Fri. Oct 4 @ 8:30am - Sat. Oct 5 @ 4:00pm (scroll to bottom for schedule)

Who: Women in or interested in being a leader in God's Kingdom 

What: A two-day summit where we will look at your mandate and margins as a leader as well as how to make it happen!
