“As a woman in leadership, I was drawn to IGE’s Center for Women, Faith and Leadership (CWFL) program and its ability to support and equip women of faith who are called toward religious freedom and peacebuilding efforts. As I learned even more about how IGE ‘stands in the gap’ for people who are persecuted for their faith, my interest in the ministry grew. So when I answered the call to consider serving on the Board I didn’t think twice. I am humbled and honored to have been called to serve and am looking forward to being part of this vital ministry.”
