Many women can sense their breakthroughs – Personally, Professionally and Spiritually -- but the challenge is moving from “sensing” to realizing. Women have always had an innate ability to “make things happen,” but even with this ability, obstacles often stall and prevent them from moving forward. This Conference will offer tools and solutions designed to empower and inspire women to take charge and “make it happen.” Preaching, teaching, fellowship and unique small group exercises will invite you to become the God-inspired architect of your change.
8:30 a.m. Registration and Continental Breakfast
9:00 a.m. Opening Worship Service – Make It Happen
10:00 a.m. Session One - Write the Vision
Habakkuk’s direction from the Lord, write the vision and make it plain, was clear – but our practical application of this direction is often unclear. Where am I going? What am I doing? Relationally, professionally, spiritually – this is a question women ask themselves daily. This opening session challenges women to write a vison statement for their lives. A personal vision statement can guide your life and provide the direction necessary to chart the course of your days and the choices you make about your career and personal growth. In darkness, this God-inspired statement can be a shining light to help you find your way.
10:30 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. Break
10:45 a.m. Group Exercise – Write the Vision
Creating a vision board can help you unlock dreams, goals, and successes in your life. During this exercise, ladies will paste and tape collage images from various magazines and newspapers. It sounds simple – but it’s a powerful exercise as you begin to surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, or where you want to live, your life changes to match those images and those desires.
11:45 a.m. Reflections
Food, fun and fellowship
1:00 p.m. Praise and Worship
1:15 a.m. Session Two – The Picture God Sees
In one of the bibles most often quoted illustrations, the Lord urged Jeremiah to observe the work of the potter and what he did with a marred piece of clay -- he molded and fashioned it into something usable. This, according to The Lord, is what He is able to do with our lives. This artistic illustration demonstrates God’s ability to see beyond our mistakes and assure us that there is nothing too hard for Him. As we prepare to close our conference with a practical artistic exercise, our preacher reminds us about “the picture God sees.”
1:45 p.m. Group Exercise – Putting It All Together
This entire day has focused on recapturing your vision and dream. The day closes with this unique way to unlock your creativity and illustrate what “making it happen” will look like as you move forward. Don’t be intimated – no painting experience is needed and paint, canvas and brushes are provided. And, everyone will leave the day with a canvas which illuminates our collective vision of “making it happen. ” This exercise, which is being used across the Country, will be unique, fun, relaxing, engaging and powerful.
