WILD FAITH IS A CREATING A SPACE OF BELONGING FOR WOMEN IN THE CHURCH TO COLLABORATE, TO EQUIP , TO EMPOWER, TO MENTOR, & BE MENTORED IN ORDER TO CARRY OUT THE GOSPEL COMMISSION.
why we do what we do
She is passionate. She is kind. She is called.
As a body of believers we strongly believe that all members of God's family need to be equipped for the work of ministry and that training can prayerfully come from our fellow sisters.
We have been waiting and longing for a time to see a call for women of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life to unite for one purpose. Instead of waiting for something like that to be created for us, we decided, why not do it ourselves?
God put a vision in our hearts to encourage the women the church to take up their swords, prepare, and engage in battle. It's not about our abilities, its about our call. And God has called us to live out our faith in a way that may seem wild to the rest of the world.
This is the Wild + Faith Woman.
Loving towards her sisters, equipped for ministry, and faithful to God.
Our mission is to foster a community of Christian women through modern platforms to encourage, inspire, and equip women to be involved in creative avenues of ministry. (Ephesians 4:12)
We envision women united and equipped in the work of ministry who aim to build the body of Christ. (Ephesians 5:10-16)
We love connecting with our sisters through modern platforms like social media, emails, etc. But what we really long for is personal connection and the ability to just step away from electronic and take our magazine to the top of your favorite tree to spend some time alone. Or to just wake up in the morning and use our resources to dive deep into the word. Or to just put magazine clippings of some of the artwork on our magazine spreads. Print is one of our goals, but for now we are more than happy to interact with our friends through the web.
A heart to serve that was not encouraged, but fiercely opposed. As a woman many times the love of Jesus and passion to do something for Him is not met with encouragement, or approval.
It took a lot of grit, a lot of courage, and a lot of love for many of us to move forward in the midst of it. And along the way those that perceived the Spirit of God working in the life of this young girls gave us the affirmation that let me know that it was okay to love Jesus and to want to lead an army for Him. God put both men and women in our lives that helped us to see past the cultural norms and move forward in faith.
And then the Sisterhood and Preacher girls happened, a group of women in college that had a heart for Jesus and were often admired, or ridiculed for it. At first it began with a few, then it grew to probably 10-15 women that were now supporting one another. Everyone made sure to check in on each other, constantly challenged each other to not be idle, or fickle in our faith, and prayed together. These group of women were inspirational, and God did an amazing work through us all for His glory.
Then we all moved away. and we didn't have each other for encouragement, but we wanted this positive sisterhood experience to continue and we wanted to share it with all the sisters of faith we encountered. We knew that the church was filled with women desiring to know Jesus better and do something for Him. So we created Wild + Faith together. A place that a woman of faith could find encouragement, belonging, sisterhood, and resources. Because although that was our story (and we were blessed to have it), it is not everyone's story. Not everyone is surrounded by passionate women, not everyone has access to mentorship and camaraderie. So we thought maybe it would be cool, if we brought it to you.
So here you are :) Now a part of the greater sisterhood that God is creating in the church. God is constantly moving, we are just a vehicle for His greatness.
