Gretchen’s passion is to follow hard after Jesus, knowing He is the treasure of a lifetime and worth every minute she commits to Him. God’s Word has been life-changing for her through the most trying times—a great source of strength, wisdom, and truth. Active in women’s ministry for over 25 years, she loves to see Jesus change lives as He’s changed hers.
As an international speaker, she has had the privilege of teaching women of an underground church in China and village women in Peru. She is an active national and local speaker for conferences, retreats and women’s events. As a Bible teacher, Gretchen has written/taught Bible studies for the past 20 years. As a writer, she actively blogs through the chronological Bible at GretchenFleming.com and has contributed to several published books and magazines. Her first book “Press On! Encouragement to Keep You Moving When You Feel Overwhelmed” is available on Amazon.
Gretchen teaches and mentors women locally through her church, The Church of Eleven22, which is the sixth fastest-growing church in the U.S. She is the editor and a writer for their Disciple Group Curriculum. Currently, she is on the board of Women for Christ, a ministry that brings speakers to Jacksonville to share the Gospel and encourage women in their faith.
