CMN is partnering with the ministry Leading and Loving It to launch Virtual Community Groups for our CMN wives. Virtual Community Groups will connect our church planting wives across the U.S. with one other. It is an incredible way to meet friends in the same season of life as you.
Registration opens today on the Leading & Loving It Web site. We would love for you to be a part of a CMN Group. Our VCG Leaders will be posted here on the CMN Website so you know who to look for. If the times for the CMN Groups do not work for you, please feel free to look for another group for Church Planting Wives on the Leading and Loving It VCG registration page.
Take a look at the groups offered below and find one that you can connect with.

Renee Exley is married to Jason Exley, the Pastor of Life Church (an AG church) in Midlothian, TX. They have three wonderful boys: Ethan, Landon, and Preston. She is a stay at home mom who devotes her time to her family and the church. Renee’s passion is for church planters’ wives to know who they are in Christ and be confident in who they are. She knows in ministry sometimes “you” can get lost in busyness of it all. Renee hopes she can be there for those women who need a shoulder to cry on, someone to laugh with, and a person to trust.
