Today we’d like to introduce you to Margy Hill.
Margy, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My love for Christ and passion to help women fulfill their God-given purpose fueled the birth of the Women’s Ministry Connection in 2002. I desired to provide an environment where women leaders could connect to be encouraged and strengthened in their faith. Leadership can be a lonely place. Women give so freely of themselves to help others, but often lack a place where they can be refreshed. I also recognized the need to raise up and develop the next generation of leaders. With that in mind, I added opportunities for training to equip women in key areas of ministry. In its early inception, the Women’s Ministry Connection served a few churches. Today, I have the privilege to serve hundreds of churches locally and throughout the United States. As a teacher and an author of women’s Bible studies, I enjoy the opportunity to speak into the lives of women of all ages and church backgrounds.
Currently, I am providing on-going training for women who are mentoring, coaching, and disciplining younger women. This year’s theme is “More than Conquerors.” I am addressing the battle of the mind, victory over victimhood and fear. Also, six years ago, I started a Women’s Ministry Boot Camp that takes place every summer. It is a 12-hour day filled with inspiration and encouragement. The camps continue to grow every year with over 70 different churches joining in. This year’s theme is “NO FEAR.” I must say I am more excited now than I was in 2002!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Ministry is never a smooth road. When you are seeking to be an encourager, the enemy of discouragement is always waiting to step in. Every woman has struggles, but the remedy is always camaraderie. We were never meant to be “lone rangers.” I have a friend who put it this way: When we face mountains, what matters is who we climb with.
Alright – please tell us about Women’s Ministry Connection – what should we know?
I have found the Women’s Ministry Connection to be unique. While there are networking opportunities for women in the local area, I have not yet come across a ministry like mine that serves to encourage and refresh leaders. My deepest joy is the lasting relationships I have made with women. I should own stock in Starbucks, considering what I am sure is by now hundreds of cups of coffee, investing in women’s lives. That is what I am all about, and I think those who know me would say the same thing. The real and honest environments I provide for women to grow are all about relationship with God and one another. We need each other.
Do you feel like there was something about the experiences you had growing up that played an outsized role in setting you up for success later in life?
My life fell apart when I was 38 years old. It is at this time that the man I am married to today shared the gospel and the love of Jesus Christ with me. There is something about second chances not deserved, that give you faith to aspire to all that God has called you to be. I want every woman to share in the same discovery.
