From the Publisher

“Madimbo's passion for mentoring and developing genuine Christian leaders is clearly articulated in this book. If you want to impact others, this is the next book you need to read!” (Paul Chinchen, African Bible Colleges, Malawi)


“Madimbo highlights the faith, resilience,
and inspiration of women in leadership. She and her compatriots lead from a humble but strong empowering ethos, and thus they embrace servant leadership.”

“This book deeply challenges traditional structures in churches and societies, offering a life-enhancing alternative of participative leadership that has the potential to unleash resources of a rich yet complex continent in surprising ways.” (Elna Mouton, Stellenbosch
University, South Africa)
