I’m excited to tell you all about a conference for women showing up in a few cities in 2012!
Abundance is a new event being put together by Lifeway Women. And it’s coming to my neck of the woods April 27-28th in Eden Prairie, MN at Grace Church.
My only prior experience with a Lifeway event was the Deeper Still conference I attended in Birmingham, Alabama in 2010. And if Abundance is anything like Deeper Still, I assume it will be lovely. They really do an amazing job of putting on an event, people!
But this event is intending to be different, too. It’s still going to include the Bible teaching of other Lifeway conferences, but is adding another element of action.
I’ve met with the event coordinators for Abundance, and they’re really hoping and praying that in each city they can highlight local ministries doing the work of the Gospel in their communities. And they want to connect women with those organizations and encourage them, out of the abundance they experience in Christ, to join in!
And can I just say that Sara Groves (one of our hometown gals and one of our favorites!!) is going to be bringing a performance. So happy about that! And if you know anything about Sara Groves, she’s basically the perfect person to share her music at an event that’s meant to inspire action. Sara and her family are extremely active in the relief of the oppressed (mostly through Food for the Hungry and IJM). I know she’ll inspire us and ignite a passion to get our hands dirty. She’s contagious like that.
I hope you’ll consider registering. Aaaand I hope I get to see you there!
