A LETTER FROM OUR President

Welcome to Marketplace Women of Orange County, where we meet once a month to inspire each other as we seek to integrate our professional, personal and spiritual lives. We are working women of all capacities, from education and government to corporate and private to volunteer work and community. We benefit greatly from coming together, sometimes new business is gained, new insights are shared and almost all of the time, we leave restored and renewed.

I am so excited about the things happening at Marketplace Women and to see how God is using us as we come together to honor Him first in our calling.

Warmly in Christ,

 

Nicole Ospina
President, Marketplace Women of Orange County

“Lord, help me to do great things as if they were small – since I do them with Your power; help me to do small things with greatness , since I do them in Your name.” adapted, Blaise Pascal


Marketplace Women exists to inspire women to integrate their professional, personal and spiritual lives in the marketplace.

We envision a movement of Christian women creating a growing Christian perspective in the civic and professional life of Orange County.

 

We’re glad you’re taking the time to get to know more about our organization and the way we are inspiring women to live integrated lives … professional, spiritual and personal. We are a Christian organization founded 10 years ago with a unique mission and purpose, and over a decade later, many lives have been enhanced and enriched. Below are just some of the ways positive life changes occur and how they continue to happen today.

Understanding womens’ contributions in the marketplace have drastically increased over the years, the challenge of integrating faith into their professional and personal lives has also naturally increased. Whether you’re a CEO, mid-level manager, administrator, veterinarian, lawyer, doctor, artisan, health/fitness specialist or philanthropist, the focus of Marketplace Women of Orange County is to inspire and encourage you … in all areas of your life, not just your professional life. Through relationship-building with “like-valued” women, dynamic events and inspirational speakers, “networking redefined” and social gatherings, our members share regularly how their lives are being positively impacted.

As you make new relationships and explore our programs designed for personal growth (quarterly speaker luncheons), professional growth (monthly networking) and spiritual growth (Prayer Partners), we believe you will find there is a special place for you at Marketplace Women. Because you have taken the initiative to explore Who We Are, God is obviously stirring a desire for growth … and ultimately an integration of your professional, spiritual and personal life.

We invite you to explore our organization in greater detail including our leadership team, events and programs, and our valuable members’ directory that connects you to other members and their businesses. Thank you again for visiting and we look forward to you joining us in the very near future at one of our upcoming luncheons or events.
