The conference is designed to encourage women who want to develop their leadership skills and build up those who are already leading in their homes, work places, and churches. Be encouraged in the Word to use the leadership gifts God has given you to serve those around you. If you are a Women's Bible Class leader, Moms/Kids Group leader, teacher, interested in Women's Ministry for other women, in a leadership position in any way in your workplace or church--this Conference is for you!
Christ works through his people every day to bring light to others. Each of us is called to lead whether it's at work, home, school or even just being out and about (you never know who God may have bump into you!) ... to lead people to Christ.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house." - Matthew 5:14-15
Several of us have gone to the Women's Leadership Conference and can recommend that worshiping and studying God's Word this way is a joy! So easily we get distracted checking off the "to do" boxes (even if they are great things to do!) that it may be hard to sit like Martha's sister Mary at the feet of the One - the one thing needful. So if you can, please consider... and go... and sit... and be filled. Want to go? You need to register soon as the deadline is only one week away - June 15! You can register online or by mail. Here is the brochure.
This year’s theme is based on Nehemiah 9:12,
“By day you led them with a pillar of cloud, and by night with a pillar of fire to give them light on the way they were to take.”
The conference is looking to Ezra and Nehemiah for guidance and examples to emulate as Christian leaders. An emphasis will be on application for Christian women who are serving in some type of leadership capacity in the family, church, or secular realm.
Following each keynote address, participants will have an opportunity to join in a Peer Discussion Group to discuss daily and practical applications of the keynote address. There will be three different Peer Groups: one for application in the home, one for application in the church and another for application in the secular world.
While we all are involved in more than one area of personal ministry choose the one that you feel would be most helpful for you at the present time with an option for a second choice if you’d like.
a. Secular - this would be most helpful for those working outside the home in a profession and/or leadership/management capacity.
b. Church – this would be most helpful for those in some type of leadership or teaching capacity within their congregation or in a Christian church/school affiliated position/calling.
c. Home – this would be most helpful for those who have small children or teenagers at home, those who are single moms and/or are the spiritual leaders in their homes.
Marilyn Miller, an executive member of the Women’s Ministry committee, says,
“This conference is a success if each lady leaves with just one nugget that lets God's light shine more brightly in her personal or professional life and with a commitment to confidently use her gifts in a way that furthers the mission of the church.”
