breakout sessions

Rising Up to Embrace Technology | She Grows
In spring of 2020, webinars and online sessions went from being limited to a few spaces and uses, to being adopted everywhere. You likely participated in an online Bible study or lifegroup, streamed your church’s service, or attended a women’s conference (like She Stands) online. As activities returned to being in person, some elements of online have remained. The reality is that online activities have their place and can broaden opportunities and participation, if used well. This session is for anyone who would like to learn how to rise up and embrace the opportunities technology affords in women’s ministry. We will talk about some basic principles and cautions for using video conferencing applications. We will also discuss specific strategies and best practices for sharing content, engaging your participants, and maximizing the tools available. The focus will be primarily on Zoom but will be applicable to a variety of online platforms and tools.

Joy in the Morning | She Grows
Sorrow may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning. There is loss and pain from so many directions. How do we overcome? Though the night of sorrow may be long, how do we find joy in the morning? No matter your journey, or your story – let’s dive deep into Gods word and the joy that only He can give during seasons of great loss and the unexpected.

The Art of Encouraging Yourself | She Glorifies
Life will throw us lemons, so how do we move forward in faith? When despair and disappointments hit us, sometimes we retreat to old patterns of behaviors that keep us from God’s best. During the hard seasons of life, it is important we know how to move forward in our faith, when it is tempting to give up.

What IS the matter at hand?| She Glorifies
What IS the matter at hand? Misleading ideas, toxic beliefs, judgmentalism – Ways to discern and overcome. We will clarify, learn, pray and connect.

Discipling Others Starts in Me | She Gathers
What is discipleship and who might we disciple? And why is it important to remember that “Discipling Others Starts in Me?” Come learn tips, tools, and things to remember in order to ready ourselves for sharing our faith.

Unexpected Answers to Prayer | She Glorifies
Difficulties often drive us to prayer but what do we do when God’s answers are not what we want? In this session we will explore prayer and how to handle the moments when God’s answers to our prayers are unexpected.

Her Story Advances the Kingdom of God | She Goes
The command to share our testimony can be overwhelming and intimidating, but Jesus tells us we overcome the enemy by the “blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.” Let’s learn together how to share our life stories in everyday situations so that believers are strengthened and others experience freedom and salvation.

How to help women study the Bible and love it | She Grows
Devotional books and Bible study workbooks can be a great way to introduce women to the Word and help them stay in the Word consistently; however, we also want to help women rise up and learn to study God’s Word on their own. For some women, making the leap from a prepared, well-written devotion to engaging directly with God’s Word can be daunting. In this session we’ll talk about approaches and tools that can help set women up to successfully study the Bible on their own and love it!

Single Mom Life | She Grows
Single moms…. Whether never married, divorced, or widowed, single moms have some huge challenges on a journey that probably most never expected or wanted. How can we reach them? Minister to them? Share Christ? Women on this difficult journey can find Hope at the foot of the cross – let’s discuss how we can help lead them there.

How to Help the Searching Soul | She Grows
We all have experienced unfulfilled dreams and major disappointments. Yet, there are some who have achieved their dreams and are experiencing success, but they are still searching for meaningful purpose, for perfect peace, and unconditional love.   How do we help the searching soul who says in their heart, “I still haven’t found what I’m looking for?”

Take Heart and Do It! Ezra 10:4b | She Grows
What TO do and how to do it: the life of the leader—clarifying your women’s ministry role and responsibility.

Evangelism 101 | She Goes
What does it look like to share Jesus with others? In a world that values “individual truth,” how can we share “the Way, the Truth, and the Life?” (John 14:6) Come learn how to share the gospel in just 10 words and techniques that make it easy to share the gospel in everyday situations.

Managing Your Emotions | She Goes
We as women are emotional beings by God’s design and that is a good thing, but we should not let emotions be our driving force. Learn tips on how to manage your emotions with facts and faith thinking.

Flourishing in the Second Half of Life | She Grows
The second half of life sneaks upon us suddenly. We wake up one day and are faced with gray hairs, laugh lines, and doctor’s appointments. Shouldn’t there be more to life? Join us in this session as we look at the biblical perspective of aging and how to flourish and finish strong.

Using Rest to Fuel Her Reverence | She Glorifies
God calls rest holy, but do we join Him in recognizing the importance of rest in our practice of worship.  There is a unique relationship between rest and cultivating a heart of reverence toward God.  When our hearts are weary and tired, it’s easy to let our awe and wonder of God dwindle.  Setting aside time for quality rest fuels the fire for authentic worship.

Who Is God? | She Grows
Misconceptions and misunderstandings about who God is abound. Growing in our understanding of the Trinity is helpful as we communicate the Gospel to others, disciple women in our churches, and glorify God in our own practice of faith and worship.
