|Discipling Women: What Does Spiritual Maturity Look Like?|
How would you answer that question? We cannot evaluate spiritual maturity based on how much we do, even in service to the Lord. Instead we must look at “who we are” and “who we are becoming”. What we do for Christ, reflects how we are growing as disciples. We will look at some markers of spiritual maturity, not to see how far we fall short, but to measure the steps we are taking to pursue our walk with Christ. This will help us assess our own growth and that of the women we serve.
Leader: Chris Adams
|Discipling Women: Are We Really Discipling Women for the Future?|
Someone once said, if we don’t reproduce replicating disciples, we aren’t really making disciples. When we disciple others so they disciple others, then replication takes place and disciples multiply. As we challenge women to a higher level of commitment to their own spiritual growth, with the agreement that they will then in turn disciple another, we have made replicating disciples. We will look at strategies for effectively discipling women for the future.
Leader: Chris Adams
|Not Just a Guy Thing|
The statistics of Christian women viewing pornography and struggling with sexual sin are almost the same as non-Christian women. How, as Christian women, can we live FOR the Kingdom while feeling little to no conviction about the sexual sin that plagues our lives day in and day out? Have we become so immersed within this sex-crazed world that we don’t even recognize our own sin, seeing nothing wrong with the choices we make outside the holiness of morality, purity, and marriage? Or has this sexually-saturated culture made us desensitized to what is truly happening within our hearts and within our homes. Come to be equipped for helping women in your circles of influence.
Leader: Lindsey Crawford
|Crafting a Blessing|
Blessings are prayers with the horizon in view – intercession that carries us toward future grace. We will look at Jacob’s blessing of his children and grandchildren and the custom blessings Paul crafted in his letters to discern some of the elements of meaningful blessing. And we will consider how Biblical blessing can strengthen our relationships and help us speak life in our homes and communities. This session will give you a Biblical groundwork and practical tips for composing and practicing blessing.
|A Christian Family at Home in Another Culture|
How did God call you and your family to the country where you live and to the work you are now doing? What does it mean to a culture so different from the one of your childhood? What does it mean to be a third-culture family, living and moving between two different cultures? How can your experiences as a family serving in another culture inspire us to pray for, participate with, encourage and support families serving cross-culturally in fresh new ways?
|From Overwhelmed to Overcomer|
What is the source of the discouragement and despair that seems to be prevalent among women today? What would it take to move from overwhelmed to overcomer? Explore these questions and consider what your women’s group can do.
Leader: Sandy Gilliland
Have you noticed connections between social media and attitudes and our general outlooks on life? We’ll consider the connections and identify ways to manage social media’s impact on our lives and the lives of family members.
Leader: Sandy Gilliland
|Discovering God’s Design: Finding Your Identity in Christ|
There are many voices telling us who we are and what we should do. But, only ONE Voice matters. God has clearly spoken and told us who we are and how He sees us. Join Amanda Walker as she digs into God’s Word to dispel the lies of the enemy and discover your identity in Christ.
Leader: Amanda Walker
|Adulting (for young women)|
What is “adulting?” How do I do this? Discover ways to transition smoothly into this season, through Christ-centered bold, steady and confident steps.
Leader: Angelle Campbell
|I Can…Because I Am (for single women)|
Can God use your singleness? Let’s take a confident look at God at work through the life of a single woman.
Leader: Shannon Brown
Is it really possible to worship God seven days a week? How does my personal worship guide the life I lead in Christ? Can I really have the heart of Mary when all I’ve ever been is Martha?
Leader: Heather Boone
|Blended Hues: Connections in a Multicultural World|
When we think about women and discipleship, we most likely think about sharing the gospel and making disciples of women who are representative of our own culture. We are often most comfortable with those we encounter in our churches, at events and activities, or in the workplace who are culturally like us. However, we are called to engage with culture and make disciples of every nation despite the challenges we face in so doing (Matt. 28: 18-20). This seminar will present guidelines for cross-cultural discipleship with women and strategies to overcome barriers that will help you bridge the cultural gap and reach all women for Christ.
Leader: Stephanie Friend
|Ministry through Written Words|
Remember the excitement and affirmation of receiving a hand-written note of encouragement? In this day of “instant,” abbreviated communication – email, text, Messenger, etc., there is still a place for hand-written notes and a great ministry for the receiver and sender as well.
Leader: Janie Wise
|For Leaders of Teen Girls|
|Discipleship for Teen Girls|
What does discipleship look like for the teen girls you lead or parent? What do parents believe about discipleship? How do you guide your teens to manage their time to do discipleship?
Leader: Jess Archer
|Hot Topics (A forum-styled conference, featuring a panel that addresses the issues of the day.)|
Self-worth, style, modesty; dating; mean girls; social media; newly ‘accepted’ lifestyles– these (and maybe others) are some of the issues that teen girls face every day. The panel will discuss issues from the view point of a teen, a recent college graduate, a teen leader and a collegiate ministry leader, pointing us to godly care, concern, love and guidance.
