4word Bay Area – Faith Driven Impact
November 19, 2020 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm PST
Our faith tells us that we are made for something more but getting around to it can be a daunting task. How do we begin to have the kind of impact in the world that our faith leads us to believe? Diana Wilson, Googler and Founder of Yielding Accomplished African Women (YAAW), a West African Talent Accelerator, will share with us her journey with God as she pursues His Plans for impacting the world in which she finds herself but of which she knows is not her home. A few of her fellow founding members of YAAW will also join in the conversation. Come and be inspired to do the impossible for His Name Sake. Afterall, that is really why we’re here.
