Each lunch gathering supports your ministry through: 


Scholastica is sponsored by Central Tennessee and Tennessee Cooperative Baptist FellowshipCentral Tennessee began the Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) in Fall 2014. The WLI is a cohort-based MDiv program emphasizing entrepreneurship and innovation in ministry specifically for women, offering classes at Scarritt Bennett Center in Nashville, Tennessee and online.


Scholastica is a peer mentoring component of the WLI program, offering networking, relational support and sustained conversation for students and mentors. Now open to all women in ministry in middle Tennessee, we meet monthly from September through April. In each meeting we seek to address topics related to women’s leadership in the practice of ministry.
