Bond of Sisterhood

The ladies retreat we had at Lake Yale was a wonderful time of growth, renewal, and fellowship for our ladies. New friendships were formed and the time we spent in bible study together as a group helped build a spiritual bond between our ladies .

The Food was sooooo good

2019 Conferences

Speaker

Angela Thomas-Pharr

Angela Thomas Pharr is a follower of Christ, mother, friend, best-selling author, speaker and teacher. She is a woman in desperate pursuit of God. Her determination to know God on an intimate level, and her dedication to studying the Bible, have taught her many truths, some discovered through tears and some in times of joy.

“Once I came to really know Jesus in college, I wanted to do anything I thought would please God. In fact, I gained a lot of satisfaction in trying to do things for God,” Angela recalls. “But one day all my spiritual props came undone, my marriage unraveled, and I cried out from the pain, ‘God, now how do you feel about me?’ Actually, I think I fully expected Him to send me to the back of the line and tell me I’m not valuable anymore. But I have come to know that is not His character at all.”

Concert

Phillips, Craig & Dean –

Few songwriters cultivate more fertile creative soil when crafting a new album than Phillips, Craig, and Dean.  Juggling dual vocations as both pastors and recording artists for more than two decades, Randy Phillips, Shawn Craig, and Dan Dean have created an impressive body of work inspired by what God is doing in their lives and their respective churches.

Transparency, passion and integrity have long been the foundation for Phillips, Craig, and Dean’s music and ministry.  For more than two decades, the trio has churned out some of Christian music’s most enduring hits, including “Revelation Song,” which recently earned RIAA Gold Single status, signifying downloads of more than 500,000.  This is only the seventh time in the history of Christian music that a single has reached gold status. The song spent 17 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian AC chart and also topped the National Christian Audience chart, AC Indicator chart and Soft AC charts.

Worship

Stephen Wolgamott  –

Stephen has led the music ministry for FBC Leesburg since 2008. He is a graduate of The Baptist College of Florida with a degree in Church Music and has a Master’s degree in Religion from Liberty University. He and his wife Jennifer have four children.

Speaker

Liz Curtis Higgs –

Women of Faith, Women of Joy, Extraordinary Women, Among Friends, Time Out for Women, Moody Women, Women of Virtue, Win-some Women, Women’s Journey of Faith, Women Who Worship, Christian Women Communicating International—if it’s a conference for and about women, Liz Curtis Higgs is honored to be there. She has spoken at more than 1,800 conferences in all 50 states of the U.S. and 15 foreign countries, including South Africa, Indonesia, Germany, Ecuador, and Japan.

Her messages are biblical, encouraging, down-to-earth, and profoundly funny, helping both sisters and seekers embrace the truth of God’s amazing, unchanging grace.

Liz’s dedication to platform ministry has not gone unnoticed. In 1995 the National Speakers Association honored Liz with their Council of Peers Award of Excellence. Her alma mater, Bellarmine University, presented her with a Distinguished Alumni Award in 2005. And she received an Honorary Doctorate from Georgetown College in 2010.

But what Liz cares about most are the women seated in front of her, first row to last.
