THE WISE WOMEN AWARDS 2013
Women play a major role in church life. They sing in the choir, are part of the worship team, teach in Sunday schools, provide church administration services, run many of the ministries in the church and help to keep churches going with their regularly donations of tithes and offerings. Increasingly women are taking on church leadership role.
They are also active in the wider community, running businesses, ministries and charities, as well as supporting, helping and inspiring others whether at work, church or in the home. However no awards event currently exists to recognise their achievements.
Pastor Marjorie Esomowei of Wisdom for Women International, has always had a heart for women. In her role as co-pastor of Triumphant Church International (TCI) in Tottenham, north London, Pastor Marjorie has, honoured Christian women with an awards event.
Since 2005, Pastor Marjorie, has under the auspices of Wisdom for Women International, held an annual dinner where outstanding women are presented with an award. Pastor Marjorie noted how the morale and confidence of the recipient was boosted by being given an award, and also brought exemplary role models to the fore.
Pastor Marjorie realised that no awards events exist within the Christian community that recognise women’s achievements across the denominational spectrum and felt it was time for such an event to be held, and joined forces with Keep The Faith to organise The Wise Women Awards.
The Wise Women Awards recognizes the contribution that Christian women from the black community and beyond have made in the church and wider society.
A total of twelve awards are presented at the awards ceremony.
The category winners receive their awards each year on the eve of British Mothers Day at the Wise Women Awards ceremony held at a prestigious Hotel. The ceremony for the 2013 Wise Women Awards will be held on Saturday March 9th, 2013. See you there.
