REGISTER FOR A NEW WEW COHORT TRACK!
Delighting In the Trinity
Women Encouraging Women (WEW) is a UBF HQ program intended to support, encourage and inspire North American women leaders, both young and old.
The third WEW track will be a 6-session exploration into who our triune God is. This will be an interactive, relational discussion group, not a dry doctrinal study. It will be a chance for the women who join “to taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8), and to have our hearts refreshed. During the track we will delve into Scripture and the book: Delighting In The Trinity, by Michael Reeves. From the introduction: “…the triune being of God is the vital oxygen of Christian life and joy. And so it is my hope and prayer that as you read this book, the knowledge of Father, Son and Spirit will breathe fresh life into you.”
•Dates and time: Saturday, September 10th - November 19th, every other week from 8am-9:30am CT
•Open to women of all ages
•Facilitator: Kathy Vucekovich

The second WEW track "RECHARGE!"
We concluded our second WEW cohort, "Recharge!" after eight, one and a half hour biweekly sessions. Thirteen precious women from USA and Canada who have served in UBF for at least 20 years participated in this track. The course was designed specifically for women in our ministry. As women, juggling many responsibilities, we often neglect our own self-care, leading to stress and burnout. Using existing stress management tools, and adapting them to a biblical framework, this track was newly designed by Dr. L*iz and Dr. A*braham Lincoln to help women leaders abide in Christ in the midst of daily living. The attendees developed skills to: recognize negative perspectives and reorient to Biblical mindsets (Ro 8:6), use scriptural meditation (Psalm 1:2), breathe (Genesis 2:7), and have mindful awareness of God (Ps 8:3). Through this, we learned to calm our minds and experience God’s presence more closely. Other simple self-care routines were covered. The women overwhelmingly testified that they experienced a recharge that enabled them to have more peace and joy in life and ministry. Through small group sharing time, they grew to know each other better and were mutually encouraged and strengthened by each other's faith. We thank God for blessing this track and strengthening our women leaders. Thank you for your prayers!

The first WEW track on Biblical Soul Care took place from September 4th to December 4th, 2021, with 16 track members from 10 North American chapters. For eight weeks, we were blessed to have the LoveBibleCounseling (LBC) team prayerfully share their expertise with us. The LBC team (led by Dr. G*race S L) presented on the subject of biblical soul care and led small group discussions.
This session ministered personally to our souls as we experienced the beauty and power of a one-another ministry that is Christ-centered, Scripture-based, and dependent on the Holy Spirit. We also learned practical tools that enabled us to apply the gospel to our lives and the lives of others in a new way, especially during the difficulties of life. Going forward, we expect to continue using what we learned. We give thanks to God for his blessing and for the LBC team’s ministry to us.
The second WEW track is being prepared to start in January 2022.
Women Encouraging Women (WEW) is a UBF Headquarters cohort created to support, encourage, and inspire North American women leaders spanning the ages of 18-55. This cohort will be composed of tracks of varied subjects that will last anywhere from 8 to 10 weeks and meet for 1.5 hours for each session. Each cohort would ideally have 10 cohort members who commit to the duration of the entire track. During our time together, we hope to develop deep genuine friendships through times of instruction, discussion, fellowship, and prayer.
We are pleased to announce the first track of WEW. Love Bible Counseling (led by Dr. Grace S. Lee and others; web: lovebible.live) is partnering with WEW of the UBF to offer an 8 lesson curriculum called "Biblical Soul Care" starting from Saturday, Sept 4th. We welcome the partnership. The cohort will meet for 1.5 hours every other Saturday for 8 sessions. Here is a brief explanation of the track:
Like sheep, Christians do struggle and wander from time to time. Therefore, we need our good shepherd Jesus who helps us through his word and care (John 10:11; Psalm 119:176). We also need one another for encouragement, comfort, and accountability. Our eight-week Biblical Soul Care sessions can equip Christians with practical Biblical principles to develop the ability to care like Christ, address common struggles, and have a greater impact in the universal church.
If you are interested in joining this first track, please contact us at email@example.com (L*iz Hembekides) by Sunday, August 28. We expect to fill up fast, so contact us soon!
