God's Leading Ladies Empowerment Ministry is a nonprofit support ministry uniquely designed for First Ladies. GLLEM was founded by First Lady Phyliss Cage in 2010 in response to the growing need to support Pastor's Wives who carry an awesome mandate upon their lives to not only serve in their home but also alongside their husbands in ministry, while trying to balance day to day family living. Seeing the need for an arena where First Ladies can share in a setting unique to them, Lady Cage heeded to the call of God to create an atmosphere where God's Leading Ladies can come together in a private setting, share, support and glean from one another that only First Ladies can relate to.
"A Model to Follow"
"We certainly had the right to ask you to feed us, but we wanted to give you an example to follow." (1 Thess. 3:9 NLT)
We will lead by precepts and example in our church, home and community, and follow God's road map for our life as a First Lady.
Our mission is to
teach other First Ladies to build a solid relationship with the Lord, as well
as how to operate in unity with their leader. We will help guide them to the
place where the Lord has destined for their lives.
This ministry will
consist of Present and Former First Ladies of all denominations.
This ministry will show loyal support to other
Pastor's Wives, as well as support the Pastors of each represented ministry. We
will support them financially, physically, and spiritually.
This ministry will be used as an example to show
other First Ladies how to operate harmoniously in their ministries under the
guidance of their Pastor. This will be demonstrated by walking in total
obedience to their Pastor.
This ministry will reach out to other First Ladies
by a way of monthly fellowships, and annual First Ladies’ Conferences.
This ministry will not only teach the truth, but
we will live the truth, and encourage other First Ladies to operate in their
place of ministry.
"For I know the thoughts that I think
towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you an
expected end." Jeremiah 29:11
The ministry holds fellowships as a time of intimate and personal contact with each other; a time of building our relationship with each other's as First Ladies; a time to minister to each other as no one else can do but another First Lady; a time to remind each other that we are not in this alone, and that this ministry is here to support you; and a time to interact with one another.
This ministry unites in prayer Every Monday at 6:00 a.m. CST as First Ladies to inspire and enhance our spiritual walk in the Lord as a First Lady; to help keep us focused, well balanced and spiritually equipped in mind, body, soul and spirit; to help keep our sanctity and sanity; and to cover our spouses, our children, our family, our ministry, and those things that are dear to us.

Our Annual First Ladies Conference is held in January of every year as an opportunity for us to come together and share our God given talents and spiritual gifts to one another as well as to the body of Christ; to extend our support to the Pastors and Armorbearers in helping to strengthen us all in ministry; and to bring an awareness to the congregation that we are a "Model to Follow."
