Our Conference ThemeWomen Walk Worthy is based from Ephesians 4:1-3, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Special Invitation – We are delighted to invite all women to this entire conference because, let’s be honest – who among us doesn’t need to Walk Worthy into 2021. We all do!  With the Spirit of the Lord as our anchor, we have been in fervent prayer for the sessions we are providing this year in the midst of these turbulent times. We want you to feel loved and most importantly empowered in the Lord.

Spread the word. Invite all of your female family and friends …register by October 1st
