Discernment

MCCW uses discernment, a prayerful way of making decisions, as its method for selecting its new leaders.

MCCW discernment is done in two parts: a personal discernment process that gives a possible servant leader a guide to praying and talking with God about the decision; and a group prayer service during which potential leaders share their gifts and talents and new leaders are selected.

So that MCCW can continue to connect, unite, and inspire military women worldwide in the best way, MCCW discernment happens on a rolling, staggered schedule. There is always an opportunity to answer the call to serve.

For more assistance with MCCW discernment, please email Bevin Landrum, MCCW president, at president@mccw.org.
