Global Woman Highlight | Laurie Doden

My name is Laurie Doden and, having grown up in a business family that was very involved in ministry in different parts of the world, I have a heart for the unique challenges that come with being a business leader or a ministry leader and the isolation that can often occur. This heart is what the Lord used in desiring to launch En Gedi in 2011, a ministry to ministry leaders and business leaders and their families. Though I have had the chance to do this work in different parts of the world, currently the Lord has provided some very unique opportunities in the country of South Africa. I am living in Johannesburg and engaging with ministry leaders and business leaders and their families in a variety of different ways. It has been a joy to be a part of my Father’s work and to be on a great faith adventure with Him in South Africa!

The Lord seems to be doing a very unique work in South Africa in this season, and I believe that His desire is to bless and bring the light and authority of Jesus Christ in many different ways to the rest of Africa through the doorway of business and ministry emanating from South Africa. I rejoice in being able to be any part of something that He is doing and long to see His kingdom come and His will be done in Africa as it is in heaven!

I would so appreciate prayer for:

  • The kingdom to break through in every way in the hearts of business leaders in South Africa
  • Eyes to see and ears to hear the Lord’s continual leading in His purposes for me here in South Africa
  • Upcoming retreats of business leaders/ministry leaders and their spouses
  • A mind renewed and a heart full of Jesus and eyes fixed on Him—the author and FINISHER of my faith
