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 28 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 in 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 25 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.
Because her heart is for women’s ministry, Gretchen teaches and disciples women locally, online, and abroad. She is typically involved in her own church community serving women as well as being a board member for Women for Christ, a ministry that brings speakers to Jacksonville to share the Gospel and encourage women in their faith. This ministry celebrated 35 years in 2020. Her local church community is North Jacksonville Baptist Church.
Gretchen is a wife of 33 years, mother of 3 children, and “Gigi” to 3 grandbabies. She lives in Jacksonville, Florida.
