Be Trained as a Facilitator

Women Doing Well has always been powered by passionate volunteers.

Our facilitators guide the transformation of others by creating an environment for authentic and purposeful community. Our training will equip you to facilitate any of our experiences while taking you deeper on your own journey. The key to being a great facilitator is a heart for sharing experiences with other women and offering them the hope and strength that guided you along the way.

Once you have participated in either a Signature Event, a Doing Well Ignite Group or the Women Doing Well Retreat, you are invited to be trained to facilitate our experiences. Through this six-hour virtual training you will be equipped and ready to facilitate experiences for others. To learn more about Facilitator Training, contact Amy Soper.

Patron Community

Women Doing Well is passionate about generosity and maintaining an ask-free environment that allows women to undergo great transformation. Our Patron Community is a group of like-minded women who are passionate to see women live and give wholeheartedly. They consider WDW in alignment with their purpose, passion, and plan for this season. As a result, they give financially and—if desired, their time.

The Patron Community is essential to our mission, and it’s also a lot of fun! Patron members are invited to gatherings that enable patrons to know and encourage one another. We also hold an annual in-person gathering to celebrate what God has done over the past year.
