How would God’s kingdom move forward if women were empowered and equipped for spiritual leadership? Since The King’s University was founded in 1997, Dr. Jack Hayford has emphasized the importance of the role of women in leadership. Now, The Center for Women in Ministry Leadership (WIML) is taking that vision even further.
