Austin Ridge Bible Church is partnering with 4word Women's Ministry to support women in the workplace. 4word is a national organization whose vision is to inspire and encourage women to see their faith as their foundation, their relationships as their priority and their work as where God called them to be. Through local groups, a dynamic mentoring program and a robust digital platform, 4word leads women to achieve their God-given potential.   


Locally, 4word:Austin connects busy working women face to face in city-wide meetings, monthly small groups and casual meet-ups. Topics of discussion equip professional women to successfully integrate their faith and careers while developing their gifts to honor God in all they do. Small groups provide deeper relationships for support and encouragement as they navigate a business culture that prizes intense career commitment over other priorities.   


4WORD:Austin is led by ARBC members Susan Tolles and Susan Smalling. Please visit with one of these women to learn how you can be involved in the local chapter, or contact Susan Tolles at




Several business women at Austin Ridge created the Christian Business Women's Lunch to provide a monthly opportunity for women to find community, networking, and encouragement from other women who understand the stage of life they are in. Come join us for lunch this month, as we hear from a guest speaker on what it looks like to represent Christ in the workplace. For more information, and to register, click here!
