Julie Pierce has one big dream: to empower women leaders to change the world. In addition to founding Empowered by Pierce, she also serves as communications pastor on the lead team at Irving Bible Church in the Dallas area.
At an early age, Julie was fortunate to have older women see her potential and invest in her growth. Coaches, teachers, and professional mentors challenged her to take nontraditional paths and shaped her collaborative leadership style as well as her passion for global women's issues.
After receiving her communications degree from Texas A&M University, Julie led communications and marketing efforts for organizations including Insight for Living, Prestonwood Baptist Church, and Nokia Mobile Phones. Often the youngest and only female amongst her peers, Julie loves to share her experiences (and mistakes!) by coaching young women in leadership today.
At Irving Bible Church, she has the privilege of coming alongside pastors and teams to be more effective in their leadership and ministry. Julie serves as the communications pastor leading the team responsible for shaping the message and culture of IBC through communications and promotional efforts. For eight years prior, she led the ministry to women at IBC helping build on the foundation of leadership, excellence, and empowerment for women there and beyond.
In addition to leadership bestsellers, Julie has a passion for pie, old-school Amy Grant, wide open spaces, and getting her competitive juices flowing. She has been married to the love of her life for 15 years and has two "little superheroes" who call her mom.
