Friday May 5, 6:45 pm-9:30 pm (doors open 6:00 pm)
Saturday May 6, 9:45 am-5:00 pm (doors open 9:15 am)
This year, our guest speaker is Kelly Rader of Yarrow Alliance Church who runs the ‘Gifted & Called’ seminars for The Christian and Missionary Alliance Pacific District. She will share how we are gifted for and called into God’s mission in this world.
Kelly has been involved in Women’s Ministries for over 20 years and has often been described as authentic and real. Kelly loves to watch God at work through sharing her story and listening to the stories of other women. Kelly is passionate about the Gifted & Called Seminar because after attending a seminar as a participant she was so excited about this resource that she looked for a way to bring it to the more churches within the Alliance denomination. Kelly enjoys public speaking and hopes each woman who attends this seminar will gain a better understanding of God’s love for her and what He’s gifted her with.
Gifted & Called is Designed to:
- Help identify your God-given gifting and calling
- Identify your personality type through a True Colours Inventory
- Help you understand and work with personality types different than your own
- Build your confidence to carry out leader- ship responsibilities
- Take a look at Bible characters to see how they understood their calling and overcame their fears to fulfill their calling
- Look at qualities of effective Christ follower
- Help women envision new ways of doing traditional ministries
Each session deals with topics that are important in every aspect of daily life. Come and discover how God might be calling you and gifting you to serve Him in an area you had never considered before!
As usual, this year’s conference will also be filled with fun and food! There will be dessert on Friday and lunch and snacks on Saturday. There will be prizes to be won and other little surprises along the way. We hope you’ll join us for this year’s event and that you’ll consider bringing a friend along with you.
