Jan Greenwood is a leader. She began leading over twenty-five years ago as a wife and mom of four kids. At the same time, she was always working outside her home and serving in her local church. She’s held positions in the marketplace, owned her own business, been a fund-raising consultant for several Christian ministries and has even run a non-profit educational organization. She started a nonprofit of her own called More Ministries and wrote a book about healthy female relationships called Women at War. While battling breast cancer, she learned so much about how to contend for your future and live beyond your circumstances that she founded Brave Strong Girl, an on-line mentoring community where women help one another overcome what makes them feel weak and afraid.
For the past decade, she has been serving as a part of the pastoral team at Gateway Church, a 30,000-member, multi-campus church in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. For several years she served in the women’s ministry helping to direct a beautiful conference for women called Pink Impact. Today, she serves as a equipping pastor where one of her most important responsibilities is to help identify engage and disciple the next generation of leaders.

Personal Message from Jan
I have three great passions in my life
My family life centers around my love affair with my high school sweetheart and husband of 35 years, Mark. Together we enjoy a family of four kids, one son-in-law and a beautiful German short-haired pointer named Katy. I am also deeply invested in an extended family that springs forth from the local church.
I am passionate about encouraging healthy female relationships. When we learn to celebrate our gender, embrace our femininity and walk in unity we each become a loving, influential and powerful source of hope.
And finally, I am passionate about mentoring. When I really touch mentoring as a leadership lifestyle, I sense the pleasure of God and the power of love in action. I'd like for my life to leave a mark on others that somehow empowers them to become all that God intends.
