Breakout Sessions

  • Many young women today do not identify with the women's ministry model they have seen in past years. How can we communicate to young women that they are needed and valued in the church? In this session we will learn strategic methods to bridge the gap, build relationships, and effectively develop leadership qualities in the next generation of women's ministry leaders.

  • Whether you manage a team of two or a team of twenty, it can be challenging to effectively manage and lead a team of women. In this session you will learn practical tips and strategies, like how to create a meeting agenda, how to bring team-building exercises, what kind of roles best serve your ministry team and more. This will be an interactive session that will equip you to cast vision for your team, give spiritual direction to the ministry and enable your team to flourish.

  • We love to study our favorite women in the Bible! But what if instead of just studying them as individuals, we took a fresh look at their lives collectively throughout the course of Scripture? In this session we will learn how to have a healthy biblical overview of how God sees women and leverages them for His purposes. This framework gives us a healthy perspective to see ourselves in God's big story today. We have nothing to prove and nothing to fear - we can rest in who God has designed us to be as women who serve in His kingdom purpose right where we are!

  • If you are looking to begin or breathe new life into your women’s ministry, this workshop is for you! Loaded with practical tips to help you build a culture of genuine connectedness, transparency, spiritual depth, encouragement, missional focus and fun. We’ll tackle some of your toughest challenges and how to inspire women to use their gifts to invest in others

  • What is the difference between discipleship and mentoring? How can you best prepare yourself to do either well? Let’s throw out our preconceived ideas of who we need to be and what we need to do to best help other women grow spiritually. Vickey brings 40 years of discipling and mentoring experience to this session and is eager to share an exciting variety of encouragement, structured and unstructured methods, and practical resources. Let’s fish for women and equip them to do so too!

  • Do you ever have trouble connecting the dots between God's Word and your everyday life? Learn a highly practical and easily passonable tool for applying God's Word whether you are hearing, reading, studying or memorizing it. This workshop is highly interactive, so you will actually practice using it in class. This tool is a gift to your personal relationship with God and to helping others grow in theirs.
