Ministry to Women Essentials - Kelly King
Have you been called to the incredible opportunity of leading women in your local church or community? Whether you are just starting or in the process of rebuilding a ministry to women, this session will look at some basics in assessing your situation and taking steps to build a thriving ministry based on the life of Nehemiah. Though the why of ministering to women hasn’t changed, the methods in reaching women with the love of Christ must be dynamic. Whether it’s the rise of social media to the ever-changing cultural landscape, leading women in the local church today requires wisdom and application of God’s word.
Cracking Creativity - Kelly King
Many companies agree that creativity is one of the most desired traits for leaders in the 21st century. Yet, how do you provide a creative environment for your team at work or ministry? How can you take your next project and make it better with creative teamwork? This session will give you ways to thinking about the way you lead a team to new levels of creativity as well as teach scripture more creatively. If God is the Creator and we are image bearers of Him, then you can be creative!
TEAM Works - Kelly King
Ministry was never meant for just one person but when women join together with one common purpose, TEAM means “Together Everyone Achieving More”. If you’re building a team for local church ministry, this session will explore the Biblical model for teamwork, how to identify and enlist servant leaders, as well as discovering how to have an effective team meeting. Learn what your team needs from you as well as how to develop future leaders.
Show Her the Way - Mary Margaret West
Teenage girls and young adult women need you now more than ever. Don't miss the opportunity to pour out and share what you've learned with the next generation and show them the way. Let's talk about what it looks like to disciple the the younger women God has placed in your life.
Letting Go: Walking Boldly into Your Calling - Mary Margaret West
What has God called me to do? It's a question we ask more often than we'd like to admit. As followers of Christ, we have to step boldly into the calling that God has placed on our lives, being obedient to Him as we take each step. We'll look at what scripture says about living out the unique purposes that God designed us for.
The Mission Field of Abortion - Pat Layton
If you had access to a ministry that could reach as many as 40% of the women in your world--would you want to hear more? This workshop is designed to inform, inspire and equip women's ministry leaders to understand the heartbreak of abortion that has stolen over 60 Million lives in the US since it's legalization. Statistics indicate that close to 70% of women who have had a past abortion indicate their religious preference as "Christian" and 35% attend church at least once each week. Millions of broken hearted women are living in shame and silence in our churches and communities. This workshop will help you find them; help them heal and set them free to discover their purpose in your church!

Ready to have accountability in your spiritual growth? In this breakout, we will discuss discerning your call to lead a small group, starting the group, and ways to help the small group thrive!
How To Have Sticky Events - Lauren Sparks
Women’s events are so motivating! Gathering together with a group of women who are encouraging and pursuing Jesus gives us just what we need sometimes to keep going. But, what about after the event? In this breakout, leaders will be guided how to plan events that become an onramp to help women connect to the church community.
Being An Example - Lauren Sparks
As young leaders and young people in general, we hear 1 Timothy 4:12 often. “Don’t let anyone despise your youth, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.” What a charge with clear direction. But, have we really taken the time to stop and discover what this charge is to gain clarity in our calling? In this breakout, leaders will walk through this verse to discover the charge given and the clear commission.
Sacred Spaces - Creating safe, healing spaces for women in crisis, trauma, and pain - Kaye Hurta

Dominion and the Ministry Wife - Diane Nix
Living life in the proverbial 'glass house"" is a privilege, a joy, and a great challenge. Ministry is joyous, rewarding, fulfilling, incredible, but ministry can also be hard and lonely. For years, Diane and her husband have explicitly prayed for one another to walk humbly in their dominion. Dominion is our God-called Place, the one area He has ordained us to walk. A ministry life lived from a “glass house” is almost impossible without this understanding of our position in and through Christ. Living lives authentically and purposed by the One who called us is central. Ministry wives will finish well if they understand and live out of their dominion. Join Diane as she discusses this truth and the difference it makes when we live it.
Becoming a Leader Worth Following - Casey Merrifield
Join us as we take a look at what it means to be a leader worth following, not just a leader others have to follow. The secret is far less complicated than it seems, and yet the kind of influence you have is determined by the ways you handle these simple leadership concepts. "
