Kelly D. King
Ministry to Women Essentials | Kelly King (General/Ministry Leadership)
Have you been called to lead women in your local church? Whether you are starting from scratch or in the process of rebuilding, this session will guide you through some basics in assessing your situation and moving forward. Learn principles from the book of Nehemiah and see how the why of ministering to women hasn't changed – the methods have.
Volunteers: Recruiting, Retaining, and Celebrating | Kelly King (Biblical Literacy)
Lifeway Research surveyed 1,000 pastors in the past year and discovered that out of 44 needs, the top challenge was developing leaders and volunteers. If this is true of the entire church, then women's ministry leaders are facing the same difficulty. This session will focus on theological and practical ways to recruit, retain, and celebrate those who are serving the body of Christ.
Holy Habits: Developing Self-Control | Kelly King (Personal Equipping)
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, and more. At the bottom of this list Paul mentions self-control, that pesky and often hard-to-attain virtue. Why do we struggle with self-control and how can you begin to make changes that will strengthen your leadership? How can you turn good intentions and setting goals into progress? This session will focus on breaking the bad habits that lead to sin and developing the rhythm of holy habits that give you life.

Second in Command | Faith Grosshans (Personal Equipping)
Why influence can matter more than position.
What's Your Style? | Faith Grosshans (Biblical Literacy)
Using the eight learning styles, we will learn how to effectively teach Scripture in practical ways people understand and remember.
Reading and Writing Well | Michelle Hicks (General/Ministry Leadership)
What are the women around you reading? How do they process what they hear from others? How do they share their faith? As disciples of Jesus, women need to know and love the Lord. They also need to develop their voice as Jesus' ambassador — communicating Scripture and the gospel to others well. Both reading and writing challenge women to learn, think, and voice God's truth for themselves and others.
Emotional Intelligence | Michelle Hicks (Personal Equipping)
What is emotional intelligence (EQ)? It is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of those you interact with. Learning more about emotional intelligence can help you develop skills that will strengthen your leadership and ministry. When you develop the ability to be aware of your emotions and express them in healthy ways, you have greater relational skills professionally and personally.
Psalms: Israel's Prayers and Ours | Michelle Hicks (Biblical Literacy)
As a collection of inspired Hebrew prayers and hymns, the book of Psalms is one of most loved portions of the Bible. But how do these words spoken to God function as a word from God to us today? How do they help us to express ourselves to God and consider His ways? In this breakout, we will dive deeper in the Psalms to challenge the heart and the mind.
