Missouri Baptist Childrens Home
I’m so excited to share that our theme for Women’s Ministry in 2018 is LIVING BEYOND MYSELF!
We only have one life to live. It can be an amazing life lived out far beyond one’s self. But how do we do that and where do we start? There are nine decisions given in scripture that allow us to live an AMAZING life – they not only change, but will transform, our life. Those nine decisions are found in Galatians 5:22-23. We will focus on those life changing decisions at our 2018 TGE Event. This years’ conference could be a life changing one for every attender. We are praying that many women and girls will take advantage of this opportunity and allow us the privilege of serving them through this conference.
One of the most wonderful things about being the Women’s Ministry Specialist in Missouri is that I have the tremendous blessing of receiving brand new Women’s and Girl’s Ministry resources often before they hit the book stores. I received one recently that was written by Lysa Terkeurst titled “What Happens When Women Say Yes to God.”
I would strongly encourage EVERY Women’s Ministry Leader to offer this study to ALL women and girls this year. This study teaches how to recognize God’s voice, obey Him and live out your life with an impact upon others and the world, beyond our wildest imagination.
My question for each of us this year is, are you ready to boldly live out your faith in Jesus like never before? He has an extraordinary journey planned for each one of us! Let’s be faithful to not miss a moment of all that He has in store for us.
We have some wonderful event opportunities coming up this year. The Living Proof Live Beth Moore Event will be Friday, July 13, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. and Saturday, July 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. You can register at www.Lifeway.com.
The Women’s Ministry Training Workshop will take the place of the traditional “YOU Lead” conference before the Beth More event. It will include sessions on:Breathing New Life into Existing Ministry Units, Conflict Management, New and Exciting Opportunities for Women’s Ministry, Changes We’re Seeing in Women’s Ministry, How to Stay Relevant in Ministry, Bridging the Generation Gaps, Resource Helps and Locations, Networking with Other Women’s Ministry Leaders, Women’s Ministry Structures, Keeping the Main Thing the Main Thing, and much, much more.
This is a GREAT opportunity to connect with other Women’s Ministry Leaders from around the area. Whether you’re in Women’s Ministry, the community, teacher of a Sunday School Class, or in the home – women are leaders. Whatever your leadership role, this Training Workshop will give you the scriptural tools to be the best leader you can be. Interactive classes and fresh biblical insights on leadership roles will leave you refreshed, renewed and excited to return to the ministry field to better serve both now and in the future.

In His Love,
