How to Start a 4word Local Group

4word’s goal is to launch communities for professional women who are committed to seeking God in their city. If you see the need for a 4word Local Group in your life or in the lives of the women around you, we would love to talk to you about starting a group!

What you receive to start a Local Group:

  • Agendas & plans for meetings – “How to Host a 4word Event”
  • Communication tools
  • A 4word speaker- Diane Paddison (founder) or Lori Berry (director)
  • Books/study guides & ongoing content to use at your meetings
  • Quarterly Leader Newsletter to share best practices
  • Yearly Leader Development & Training
  • One-on-one sessions with 4word’s Local Group Director

What are the requirements to start a Local Group?

  • 1 year commitment
  • Visit with a 4word leader.
  • Gather women in your area- we can help!
  • Help us find a company sponsor to financially support the group.
  • We estimate the time commitment to be about 10 hours/month.
  • Review our leader commitment paperwork.

Let’s start!


We are glad you are here!
