Trudy Cathy White: Featured Speaker for Prayer Brunch
Trudy Cathy White is a native Georgian and the daughter of the late Jeannette and S. Truett Cathy, the founder and chairman emeritus of Chick-fil-A, Inc. At heart, a developer and encourager of well-founded Christian lives, White became the Director of WinShape Camps for Girls in 2003. WinShape Camps was founded by her parents with a mission to “shape winners” through rewarding experiences that promote Christian values. Trudy influences the lives of thousands of young girls each year. WinShape Camps registers more than 32,000 campers each summer (www.winshapecamps.org). Trudy and her husband, John, are also co-founders of Lifeshape, Inc., whose purpose is to glorify God by breaking the unfortunate and widespread cycle of spiritual poverty. Lifeshape provides opportunities for the Chick-fil-A family and other marketplace professionals to build relationships and to be catalysts for the transformation of leaders around the world. Lifeshape implements over fifty projects in nearly thirty countries each year (www.lifeshape.org).
Two of Lifeshape’s most important resources are: Impact 360 Institute and Lifeshape Brazil. The Institute, located south of Atlanta, offers academic experiences that equip young adults to be culture-changers instead of being changed by culture (www.impact360institute.org). Based in Brasilia, Lifeshape Brazil works with churches, educational institutions and companies to equip people to live out their Christian faith (www.lifeshape.org.br). White currently serves on the Board of Directors for Lifeshape, for Impact 360 Institute, for Lifeshape Brazil, and for WinShape Foundation. She is a speaker, an ambassador for Chick-fil-A, and the author of Along the Way, a heart-warming collection of autobiographical stories. This dedicated wife and mother has four children and thirteen grandchildren and is fueled by her passion to invest in relationships. Her life-commitment is to obey God’s leadership, nurture family relationships, and promote godly character in the next generation.
