The name "
Ntosake" comes from South Africa and means "She who walks with lions; she who carries her own things."
Rev. DeNeice Welch, chair of the Clergy Leaders Caucus of Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network, PIIN, is serving this year as National Chair for the Ntosake table.
Ntosake is a training created by the women of the Gamaliel Network with the intent of building strong organizations by challenging women to claim their responsibility for creating community. The focus for Ntosake training is to understand our own history, allies, relationships, obstacles, and motivation and how these relate to building our power and public life. In this training, I expect to be challenged in such a way that I am moved from apathy to action, from a follower to a leader, from observer to actor, from powerless to powerful, from passive faith to faith in action – all while building an exciting public life.
VOICES OF WOMEN had the pleasure of attending NTOSAKE on September 14th - 16th 2017.
It is important as women of God to develop a public and powerful life. By doing so, we transform our lives, our congregations, our unions, our organizations, our neighborhoods…the World. We are blessed to be a part of your journey, your path to becoming the most powerful woman possible.
