Welcome To Women Of SoCal!

Nicky Stade
Executive Director - Women of SoCal

A large majority of the people sitting in the average Assembly of God church are female. Women in the home and in the marketplace, Pastors' wives, female ministers, and sometimes women who are all of these at the same time—women in the SoCal Network serve and lead in the church and community. One thing we all have in common is that no matter where we serve, we can't do it alone. This is why this new team exists.  

Under the new banner of “Women of SoCal” are four distinct areas: 

  • Womens Ministries, representing and serving women in the local church 
  • Network of Women Ministers, representing and serving female credentialed ministers
  • Pastors Wives & Widows, representing and serving women who are married to ministers in past and present
  • Mujeres de SoCal, representing and serving Spanish-speaking women in the above areas

As Executive Director, I am honored to lead and serve alongside each of the women who direct these areas, as we prayerfully consider how to best support, equip, and resource all women in English or Spanish—whether a woman in the local church, a minister’s wife, or a credentialed female minister.

About Us

In our Women of SoCal culture, we are: 

  • Cooperative - We work together, preferring one another in love, united in mission and calling  
  • Collaborative - We align our projects under the overall vision of Women of SoCal and the SoCal Network to best meet the needs of all women in Southern California 
  • Celebratory - We honor & cheer for other women as we would for ourselves, championing one another on in our various callings and ministries 

Our purpose is to: 

  • Gather women, both in-person & online, in order to foster a strong community of believers (Heb. 10:24-25) 
  • Equip women through events, resources, trainings, cohorts, webinars, etc. (1 Cor. 11:1) 
  • Mobilize women from the church out into the community and around the globe (Matt. 28:19) 

We aim to serve and support women through: 

  • Connection - to Christ through Discipleship & to One Another through Mentorship 
  • Calling - Recognizing & Equipping All Women to Thrive in their Vocation  
  • Compassion - Serving those in the local community & around the world through outreach and missions support 

"The Lord gives the word, and a great host of women brings the good news."

Psalm 68:11 (NLT)
