This Conference is Moving Virtual!


Because of the guidelines of the CDC and state government during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Women’s Ministry Leadership Conference scheduled for July 31-August 1, will no longer be an in-person event. Instead, we will host a virtual experience over a period of weeks this summer with various video sessions that will be available online.

Please continue to visit this webpage for a listing of keynote speaker and breakout sessions along with air times. Thank you so much for your understanding during these unprecedented times. If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

FOCUS – Keeping Christ Central


Rediscover the importance of keeping our eyes on Jesus as we serve and lead. Starting July 30, join us every Thursday at 7:00pm on our Facebook page for a women’s leadership conference. The conference will focus on keeping Christ central.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2

Our Struggle to Trust
Katie Stutler

Premiere Date: October 22 at 7:00 PM | SBCV Women’s Facebook Page

When faced with difficult situations in our lives, God’s promises are the blessings we long for, but they seem difficult to receive. What stands in the way? Why do some seem to see God’s hand helping at every turn while others struggle to experience God’s blessings? We will look to Jacob to discover patterns that are keeping us from greater growth and trust.


Focusing on Our Call
Lexi Judy

In today’s world, it’s easy to feel as though your voice is drowning in a sea of other voices that appear far more relevant than your own. How do we know God’s will for our lives? How do we know what God is calling us to? We’ll take a deeper look at Paul’s answers to these questions in his letter of 1 Thessalonians.
