The Encounter

Women's Conference | May 10-11

Are you ready for The Encounter?

Have you ever had an encounter, an unexpected experience that changed your life forever?

God desires to have encounters with us. He desires to take us to higher places in Him that are new, exciting, and life changing.


During this 2-day event for women, we will explore different women in the Bible in a way that captures our hearts to better see ourselves as God sees us. And, through their stories, we will better understand our own stories.


Registration cost is $85 which includes a welcome reception on Friday and Saturday night, a light breakfast Saturday, lunch on Saturday, and all conference materials. T-shirts are available to order at the time of registration for $15.  

REGISTRATION CLOSES FRIDAY MAY 5.


Childcare will be available from 9:00 am-4:00 pm Saturday for a minimal cost of $30 per first child, $10 per additional child, with a childcare cap of $50 per family.
