Austin Ridge Bible Church is partnering with 4word to support women in the workplace. The Austin Chapter of 4word is led by an ARBC Member. 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 quarterly 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 member Susan Tolles, with Rene' Reilly and Susan Smalling serving on the Leadership Board. Please visit with one of these women to learn how you can be involved in the local chapter, or contact Susan Tolles at or call 512-797-2438.




Several business women at Austin Ridge created the Christian Business Women's Lunch to provide regular fellowship through faith-sharing, short inspirational topics and networking within a monthly lunch. Grow your circle of Christian business women and build real relationships while sharing what it's like to be His representative in the workplace. For more information, visit
