NAE Fuller Formation Group
National Female Leaders Cohort 2022–23

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).

This one-year cohort of select female leaders from the NAE network is designed to strengthen our spiritual and missional formation. Fuller Formation Groups (FFG) are a hands-on, relational way to learn and nurture spiritual practices that equip us to deepen our connection to Christ and his work in this world.

Within the context of community, we explore God’s calling for us during this season and the ways he has wired and shaped us. We also cultivate tools, like lament and the prayer of examen, to help us to continue to grow. Leadership can be a lonely venture, but our prayer is that we can journey together as redeemed sisters in Christ.

Please note: This is an invitation-only cohort. For questions, email Toni Kim, NAE director of spiritual care.
