Event description

Description

We invite you to be part of this exciting event that will honor women who've had significant impact in our communities, and empower incarcerated women and urban leaders for significant futures.

On Thursday, November 8, 2018 World Impact Topeka will present the Women Who've Changed the Heart of the City 2018 Topeka Luncheon. Seating will begin at 11:30 and the Luncheon will begin at 12:00. The event will honor women whose vision, compassion and service have made a difference in the lives of those impacted by poverty or incarceration in North, Central and Western Kansas. Your donation will empower women who are incarcerated in our Kansas women's prison, the Topeka Correctional Facility, to change the heart of their cities, and will help us expand our initiatives.

In recognizing the following 2018 Women Who've Changed the Heart of the City Honorees, we will celebrate exemplary and inspirational service in education, community, politics, ministry and missions. Please join us in honoring these women:

  • Michelle De La Isla, Topeka Mayor

  • Dr. Tiffany Anderson, Topeka Superintendent of Schools

  • Lisa Entz, World Impact Senior Vice President, RMO, Wichita

We look forward to updating you regarding our four-year discipleship and seminary-level leadership training program in the Topeka Correctional facility, which will help equip incarcerated women for leadership. Developed by World Impact's The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI), TUMI classes in prisons have led to drastically reduced recidivism rates among those who participate. Locally, World Impact Topeka and TUMI Topeka have six years of experience with seminary-level training among those who have been incarcerated in Shawnee County Adult Detention Center, and we are entering the second year of the program in TCF with 102 women currently enrolled and an 81% overall completion rate.

There is great hope for the City! Please join us in this event to recognize women who inspire hope and to equip men and women, boys and girls, who can become the hope of their own neighborhoods.

We will be truly grateful for your support and look forward to hosting you at the Women Who've Changed the Heart of the City 2018 Topeka Luncheon!
