Breakout Sessions

Desiring God and His Word
Allison Hagenseker

Do you ever feel like reading the Bible is something you need to check off your to-do list or that you are too busy to spend time with the Lord? Let’s explore practical ways that we can better understand Scripture and deepen our love and desire for the Lord and His Word.

Holiness: Our Perfection Matters
Katie Stutler

Was it his anger or was it something else that caused the great leader, Moses, to miss out on walking into the Promised Land? This session will unpack scriptures to give direction to ladies who want to experience a closer fellowship with God and for anyone who wants to lead meaningfully.

Caring, Serving, and Leading Well for the Abused in the Church and in Your Community
Mary Beth Adams and Dolly Mink

Whether it is in your church or community, statistics show that 1 in 4 women are sexually assaulted. Are you prepared as a leader to offer guidance and direction to survivors of sexual, physical, emotional, spiritual, and domestic abuse? Join us as we offer help to navigate these deep, difficult waters.

Great is His Faithfulness: Relying on the Steadfastness of the LORD in Seasons of Drought
Rebekah Juarez

Not every season of following Jesus is a mountaintop experience, and even in the valleys of life we have felt His nearness. But what are we to do when we find ourselves in seasons of spiritual doubt, drought, or despondency? In this breakout session, we will explore practical steps and resources for keeping faith alive by remaining focused on Christ and His mission, allowing Scripture to inform our thoughts and keep our emotions in check, and trusting in His faithfulness to carry us through.

Investing in Your Children from Infancy through the Teen Years
Stacie Palmer

Now more than ever, our children need the hope of the gospel in our ever-changing world. In this break-out session, you will find encouragement, resources, and practical ideas to equip you as you seek to raise up champions for Christ.

Filled Up to Pour Out
Lynn Wampler

As women, we are pulled in many directions. Often times finding ourselves wearing many hats, if you will, or carrying many titles. How do we make sure we are filled ourselves so we can appropriately pour out to others? Join Lynn Wampler to discuss & encourage one another to focus first on our number one calling.

Meditating on God’s Word
Abbi French

In the Bible, God tells His people to meditate on His law. But what does it mean to meditate on Scripture? In this workshop, we will discuss what biblical meditation is, and how it leads to delighting in God and His Word.

Reaching Your Community for Christ
Cindi Melvin

Let’s explore practical ways you and your church can share the gospel while ministering to your community and the world.

Digital Dominion Workshop: Five Questions Christians Should Ask to Take Control of Their Digital Devices
Jeff Mingee

You know the sting of looking up from your phone only to realize that your loved one has repeatedly asked you a question you have yet to hear. Or the shame of hours spent on social media and mere minutes in prayer. God intends for you to exercise dominion over your digital devices as you grow in discipleship and He has tremendous joys in store that can only be experienced by those who take control. In this workshop we will identify clear questions and practical steps as we shift from mindlessly scrolling to intentionally leveraging our devices for God’s glory and our joy.
