Faith Church 2017 Women’s Conference

 
On October 13 and 14 (Friday and Saturday), Faith Church will host a Women’s Ministry Conference, led by Lisa Hellier. Lisa serves as a National Women’s Ministry Trainer for the PCA and has taught as an experienced Bible study teacher for the past 17 years in various women’s ministry roles. Lisa and her husband, Jim, have been married for 25 years and now live in Flowood MS. They are members at Redeemer PCA in Jackson MS and have three sons.

Why?

You may be thinking, “Why should I attend a Women’s Ministry Conference? I’m not in ministry!” Well, the fact is that every disciple of Christ, every member of His church, is called to be part of the work of making disciples. I Peter 4:10 tells us, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”
 
This is your opportunity to learn to use those God-given gifts to better serve others! Please join us as we consider together practical tools for life-giving ministries in the context of our homes, churches and communities.

Content

This conference is designed to give women a framework to think biblically about who God is and who He is calling women to be in the context of the home, church, workplace, and community. The conference provides a biblical framework for women in ministry as well as practical tools. It is useful for establishing or reinvigorating women’s ministries. Topics include Christian worldview, the Covenant, Church, Womanhood, Kingdom Discipleship, and many nuts and bolts of Women’s Ministry.
 
100-page workbook is included in the registration fee and will be distributed at the conference. The workbook contains much more than the structured notes for the five Sessions. There are many follow-up discussion activities, many case studies, thought provoking articles answering many FAQs, an annotated bibliography, and a Titus 2 Discipleship appendix. There is no way to cover all of this in a single weekend. But the additional material can be used for discussion activities after the conference.

Conference Nuts & Bolts

Age limit
We have not set a minimum age limit for this event. Young teens are welcome if they can handle the material and schedule. This training is beneficial to women of all ages, whether or not they are involved in ministry.
 
Nursery
Our space does not allow us to offer a nursery, so please make childcare arrangements for your children. Women with “babes in arms” are welcome to bring their infants. The church will provide a comfortable space where you can retire with your infant, if needed, and still listen to the speaker.
 
Dress
Dress comfortably and bring a sweater or light jacket in the event it gets cool.
 
Traffic
The traffic in Frederick can get pretty bad late in the afternoon, especially on Friday. If you’re coming from out-of-town, we recommend you arrive early, check-in to your hotel (if you’re staying locally), and get dinner on the west side of Frederick.
 
Lodging
Frederick offers a variety of accommodations, including hotels, B&B, and AirB&B. We have not made any arrangements with any specific hotels, but if you make your reservations early you shouldn’t have any problem finding a room.
 
Restaurants
Because of the traffic, we recommend you consider dining options for Friday night on the west side of Frederick. Use the church address to search nearby options.
