Mighty Women of Vision: The Story…
In 2008 Elizabeth Thompson conceptualized and captured the vision for Mighty Women of Vision. Elizabeth based the concept and need on a teaching she heard from Ezekiel 37—the story of God breathing life back into the dry, scattered bones. Her God-inspired desire was to facilitate a spiritual awakening and revival bringing unity in the body of Christ. Her desire to remove denominational boundary lines and to foster unity would become the foundation of Mighty Women of Vision.
Mighty Women of Vision began with a group of women gathering in Elizabeth ’s home for a Bible study. They endeavored to host a Garden Party to benefit a local faith-based organization by spotlighting them to the community and assisting the ministry through helps or financial means. The heart beat of spotlighting other nonprofits has continued through the years with annual fundraisers. Elizabeth’s vision for a non-profit to do philanthropy work has come to fruition through the years, raising funds for several local and global ministries. Locally funds have been raised for the Eugene Mission, Hosea Youth Services, Hannah House (Teen Challenge rehab home), One Hope, Camp Agape, Dove Medical (Crisis Pregnancy Center), Branches of Valor, and for women and children in crisis situations. Internationally funds have been sent to help our partners in India, Malawi and Uganda. In India we partner with Living Sacrifice Ministries (installing wells in India and supporting Toast the King gatherings for women). We also partner with Mighty Women of Vision and Youth Ministry in India, founded by Geeta Khora and Kanteswar. This ministry is also installing wells, starting Toast the King gatherings as they reach out to remote villages to share the gospel and providing food, clothing and education. In Uganda, we partner with Betty Wodilla and support a small foster care home with 6 children. We desire to come along other ministries to break off poverty and injustice in their areas.
The mission of Mighty Women of Vision is “equipping and empowering women to become the hands, feet, heart, and voice of Jesus.” Toast the King gatherings are happening in several cities throughout Oregon and internationally. TTK is a venue for faith based women, designed to bring unity to the body of Christ through worship, hearing an inspirational speaker and Power Table Talk Time for relationship building and prayer when needed. The monthly luncheon starts with each woman holding her goblet (water glass) high to toast the King of Kings (prayer) and then blessing each woman at her table. At any gathering if a toast is given, it is a way to welcome a person of prominence and to welcome their presence.
We also desire to support women in the market place by allowing (limited) vendor space.
Mighty Women of Vision understands that women can gather in unity even though biblical doctrine may be dissimilar in some ways. MWOV strives to focus on core, essential Christian beliefs and doctrine while allowing God’s grace and love to cover the peripherals of the Christian faith. We have found that the many Christian women joining together creates a unique, beautiful, and dynamic group. Importantly, bridging church denominations at the local level paints a wonderful picture for the community as they see the body of Christ in action, choosing to set aside differences and walking as sisters.

Ephesians 4:2-6, “Be completely humble and gentle, be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.”
