Scenic City Women’s Network has chosen Madelene Miller to receive the “Lydia Impact Award”. This prestigious award honors and is given to an extraordinary woman who exemplifies what it is to be a true Christian Working Woman. The award will be presented at the annual Praise Breakfast on April 18 at the Chattanooga Convention Center.

Ms. Miller was chosen as someone who exhibits a life-time of mature Christian faith and enthusiasm for life.  She positively impacts lives and is making a difference in the world around her. She is also an encourager to other Christian working women. She is a founder of Scenic City Women’s Network.

Mrs. Miller received her bachelor’s degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and worked for the IBM Corporation as a marketing representative and systems engineer. But the Lord had other plans.  Answering the Lord’s challenge to “choose you this day whom you will serve,” she resigned from IBM and moved to Chattanooga where she earned a master’s degree from Tennessee Temple University in education.

For most of the last 25 years, she has trained others how to teach children or taught students herself.  She has been a teacher for the deaf, a middle school teacher, a Christian School Administrator and a trainer for Child Evangelism Fellowship. She has also served on the boards of several local nonprofit organizations. She volunteers for the Salvation Army and is on the Dora Maclellan Brown Ministry Scholarship Committee for the Generosity Trust.

 

Today, Ms. Miller is director of Children’s Ministries for New Covenant Fellowship Church where she is also a mentor/leader in the Women’s Ministry. She also serves on the planning committee for Women’s Ministry and Director of the Deaf Ministry. She is the wife of Pastor Bernie Miller of New Covenant Fellowship and has one son, Zachary.

 

The 14th annual Praise Breakfast event is Wednesday, April 18, at the Chattanooga Convention Center. Doors open at 6:30 a.m. Keynote speakers are Jackie Green and Lauren Green McAfee, from Hobby Lobby and Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC.  They will speak of the incredible, unexpected journey that lead to Museum of the Bible.  The Praise Breakfast theme is “God’s Unfathomable Riches.” The Greens' story is reflective of God’s great blessings.

 

The Praise Breakfast is open to the public, and both men and women are encouraged to attend.  Tickets are $30 or table of 8 for $240.  Tickets can be purchased through the organization’s website at www.scwn.org.  For more information call 423-698-6262 or email renee@scwn.org.
