At Equip Women’s Conference, we will worship together, hear from our guest speakers, attend relevant and informative breakout sessions, and have time to fellowship with each other. The theme of Equip is, “Awaken,” and our Scripture is Isaiah 43:19a. We are looking forward to awaking to all that God has for us in 2023. Equip is totally free, and lunch is included. This event is for all women, and it’s a great opportunity for a team retreat, a girls’ day out, or some time investing in your personal growth.

Featured Speakers

Rachel Lovingood

Speaking at the Yorktown and Fredericksburg locations

Rachel Lovingood is an author and speaker. Her ministry is primarily to women’s groups and to ministry wives. She and her husband have been involved in ministry for the past 31 years. In light of her student experiences, Rachel also speaks to groups of students from middle school to college age. She firmly believes that God’s Word is transforming and the best way to live the abundant life is by following Christ daily.

Whatever the group, she brings the Truth of Scripture unapologetically and uses every day situations to help the listeners make applications to their lives. Rachel is real and relevant and audience members invariably walk away challenged and changed.
