She Leads Georgia

”If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief… will arise from some other place… Who knows if perhaps you were [born] for just such a time as this?”  ~ Esther 4:14

2023 She Leads Georgia Honorees

As part of the launch of SHE LEADS GEORGIA, 50 women of faith have accepted the honor and encouragement to continue lives of “servant leadership” in their diverse assignments. Our Bible standard for this occasion can be found in Esther 4:14 and Matthew 28:16-20. They are all listed below as “Commissioners” in honor of THE GREAT COMMISSION.

Esther 4:14: “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”

The Great Commission

Matthew 28:16 – “Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

1. a person appointed to a role on or by a commission.” THE GREAT COMMISSION
• a representative of the supreme authority in an area. GOD IS THE SUPREME AUTHORITY FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
