On Saturday October 16 women in leadership gathered in their homes from across Canada to participate in our 4th annual Called International Leadership Forum. Due to COVID we were once again online.
That did not stop the enthusiasm and energy we all felt as women eagerly wanted to hear how they can be relentless in their leadership in today’s broken and troubled world.
Margaret Gibb – Founder and Director of Women Together, award winning author and speaker
Topic: Relentless Leadership
Margaret Gibb, was the first plenary speaker and outlined how the Holy Spirit changed history through men and women. She focused on Bible people such as Moses, Nehemiah and Joshua who all became mighty under God.
“By the power of the Holy Spirit leaders are transformed, so that in time character matches calling. In time, they stand up and lead with Holy Spirit strength and authority. In time, they become their calling.”
Heidi McLaughlin – Author and international speaker
Topic: Relentless Breakthrough
Heidi McLaughlin, our second plenary speaker, expounded well on the power of breakthrough. Her focus on Nehemiah and the challenge of the half-way point in building was powerful. “Breakthroughs take us deeper so that God can take us higher. Our calling is our destiny and nothing can stop it.”
Judy Rushfeldt – Award-winning author and speaker
Topic: Relentless Adventure
Judy Rushfeldt, our final plenary speaker, made Joshua’s story come alive. She walked us through scripture and the adventure Joshua experienced with God. “God has placed adventures and dreams in our heart that may terrify us. By embracing them we will experience the satisfaction and joy of doing what God has called and empowered us to do.”
Who will ever forget the leadership insights from Deb Grey, Liz Curtis Higgs and Kathy Mainse? Powerful stories of God working in their lives with relentless grace.
An ebook gift was given to all those who registered. This is a love-gift of 20 daily devotionals from our Canada team.

Comments from the attendees included:
“The messages from the speakers was timely and incredibly touching. My life is totally transformed and I believe I will never be the same again. I pray that these messages reach all women in the world.”
“I need more of these. I am ignited to a higher level by the grace of God. Fight to have a high view of God. Praise is the entry in to the heart of God. Whenever I go through a death-like experience there will be a resurrection.”
