"Women of Hope" Conference


What is "Women of Hope"?

As women, we are naturally caretakers. God designed us to care for our husbands, children, friends, parents and well....let's face it, everyone around us. But where do we go to get re-charged? Where do we find the energy and spiritual renewal that we need in order to carry this load? That is the purpose behind the "Women of Hope" conference. It is an opportunity for Christian women to come together to hear dynamic speakers, meet other Christian women and encourage one another in service to others.
