all about influence

November 12, 2018  |  8:30 AM – 3:30 PM

Women leading in ministry (whether you’re paid or not) face a unique set of challenges. The All about Influence Conference is specifically designed to help you to be effective as you use your God-given gifts, as well as to encourage you in your own spiritual journey. Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to meet other women ministering in the area, to engage with our keynote speaker, Jenna Mountain, and to learn how to tackle difficult ministry tasks from other local ministry leaders!

While not wanting to be “singled” out, single women often feel like an overlooked demographic. How do we as a church care for single women in a way that honors them and gives them opportunities to flourish? Come join us as we discuss the nuances of ministering to and with single women and a theology of singleness.

When was the last time you took a good, hard look at you—the physical you—and how your body reflects your worship, stewardship, and discipleship? In this workshop, a church staffer and a health practitioner team up to connect key theological foundations of the Creator with his most treasured piece of creation: the human being. Together we’ll explore practical strategies to love and care for the beautiful, God-given skin you’re in so you can pursue a vibrant life of influence.

Do you (or people you minister to) view jobs in the secular workplace or work at home as toil? Do you/they wrestle with finding purpose in daily life? What is God’s perspective: Is some work more valuable to God and His Kingdom than other work?  In this workshop, we explore what God’s Word reveals about all work, and how this life-changing truth can equip and empower believers to live as Christ’s “sent ones” in our daily workplace mission fields.

All humans are created in the image of God and designed to be in relationship with Him.  This includes people with special needs.

The church can minister to special needs families by creating a loving community that helps connect them by faith to God in their unique world.
Let us learn how to serve special needs families and point them to sacred resources to enhance their spiritual journey.
