Women bridge gap between faith, business

Wennerberg, never married has been in the business world since her mid 20s, and knows the pitfalls, obstacles and struggles she has encountered.

“I never had that type of group or support and wondered how it might have been easier with some Godly and biblical advice along the way,” she said. “… the opportunity to seek out other Christian women with whom to do business.”

Hoping to share some of those lessons with other Christian ladies, and also be a support group for other women, Wennerberg decided to take action.

“I just simply didn't know of any other business networking group, whether specifically for women or co-ed, that existed in my area,” she said. “With the encouragement and support from the steering committee, that is what we did. I couldn't have done this in a million years without them.”

TLC is open to all working women — those employed, retired or preparing to return to the workforce. Meetings are about 45 minutes and attendees are able to bring a brown bag lunch and eat while sharing and networking.

“I love the concept of drawing from others' experiences and providing an environment for that,” she said. “I'll never stop learning and this group is no exception.”

The name, The Luminary Connection, was chosen because it was apparent to the founders that the lowest common denominator for their goals was to join biblical principles with business practices.
