She sits across from me, coffee cup in hand, as we chat. The conversation flows from books to kiddos to vacations, and inevitably we land on the topic of serving God.
As we explore the intricacies of church leadership, serving women of faith, or the joys and trials of growing a kingdom business, a subtle question inevitably emerges:
Where is the community for women of faith leaders? How can I connect with people who understand where I am and what I face today?
I have had this conversation over and over with women of faith in leadership. And whether the woman is a ministry leader, a business owner, or a woman God has called to lead “behind the scenes,” I’m astounded that the question is always the same: “We crave community. Yes, we have our life groups, social gatherings, and church friends, but we need more.”
And my heart echoes, “Me too,” because I know what it’s like to lack the community you crave and to feel isolated even as you serve Jesus.
Amaze! is Born
Amaze! Communities were birthed from a desire for women of faith in leadership to have a space that’s uniquely theirs. A space where leaders gather to uplift, celebrate, and empower one another. A safe space for like-minded women of faith from different churches and unique backgrounds to come together around a common thread–Jesus and a common desire–connection.
Because the truth is, leaders need a place of our own–a place to be known and affirmed and encouraged by women who are like us and understand us. We desire a place to connect — not just virtually, but in real life. We crave a place to enjoy the type of community we’re created for: the face-to-face kind that fosters being known for real and leads to authentic conversation, soul-deep encouragement, and true growth.
Because in a grace environment where you are known and loved for who you are, where the people around you actually understand you, and where you each desire to grow together with God . . .
AMAZING things happen!
The Amaze! Groups
Jesus promised that whenever two or three gather in His name, He’s right there in the middle. Amaze! Allies is that group of 2 or 3 who gather on purpose to uplift, celebrate, and empower each other.
Using the proven Amaze! Accountability™ system, these small groups can enjoy open conversation, deep knowing, and true support. The beauty of this type of group is that anyone can start one anywhere! Just find a likeminded friend or two, choose a time and place to meet, and you can create a grace environment and true connection together.
Not only will you find yourself getting to know each other quickly, but the power and inspiration found in holding each other up and growing together will . . .well, . . . amaze you!
For an Amaze! Community, we gather 8-12 women who are similar in leadership roles and help them form connections with the goal of encouraging, celebrating, and empowering each other.
Using the proven Amaze! Accountability™ system, these groups enjoy monthly gatherings that foster open conversation, deep knowing, and true support. Plus each community group is coordinated and facilitated by the founder, Janna Wright, (that’s me!), so you get to experience firsthand the true vision and grace environment necessary to nurture these deep, supportive connections.
And the best part? You don’t have to create the community yourself! I do the work for you. You just come and connect to the group that fits best.
Some of the Amaze! Communities for women of faith based in and around Denver, CO include:
- ministry leaders

What It Is…and Isn’t
We’ve all been part of groups before, and at this point maybe you’re trying to figure out how Amaze! resembles something you’re familiar with. Well, let me clarify a little more . . .
Amaze! Communities are unique gatherings, unlike anything you’ve seen before. (Besides, if you’d found one already, you probably wouldn’t still be reading this, right?)
So, How About You . . .
Are you a woman of faith in leadership who craves connection with likeminded women? Come and be part of the Amaze! Community.
