Keynote: Feminism, Femininity, & the Fragrance of Christ

In a world of increasing gender confusion, tribalism and dis-integrated living, today’s Christian women have a unique opportunity to witness to something fuller, deeper, humane and healing. Writer Anne Snyder joins us to share insights gleaned from her experience as a writer, as a wife, as a Christian woman working largely within male-dominated sectors, and as convener and judge of some of today’s most effective character-forming institutions. She’ll spark your imagination about your own call to follow Christ in today’s uncharted rapids, and the particular ways God may be inviting you to embrace all that you are to serve Him, His church, and His world.

Breakout: Effectively & Authentically Leading as a Woman in the Workplace

We are all leaders, leading ourselves as well as those around us in the workplace. Research shows that women collaborate, share power, empathize, spot trends, assess risk, and embrace broad vision more than their male colleagues. This ability to blend logic and intuition and build inclusive work cultures are God-given gifts. But, how can Christian women leverage these “superpowers” when workplace culture seems to elevate more stereotypically masculine qualities, like speaking up, assertiveness, gravitas, and the ability to “get things done”? Join executive coach Evan Roth to discover your authentic leadership style and effectively steward your gifts for God’s glory and others’ good.

Breakout: From Identity to Influence: Living to Bless Others

What you have to offer the world comes down to who and whose you are. Regardless of your roles and responsibilities, your age or life stage, stewarding your influence begins with understanding your identity and authority as a child of the King. Cari Jenkins, author and director of Urban Skye ministries, will share how your identity in Christ empowers you to boldly love the people and places around you. Gain practical tools to see others’ needs, offer compassion, and speak words of blessing. Cari will inspire you to seek first the Kingdom of Jesus, to look to Him, learn from Him, and live like Him in the world.

Breakout: Entering Sacred Time: Sabbath, Rest, and Experiencing Time Enough for Everything

A majority of us as women live with the feeling that there isn’t enough time. The to-do list seems to mushroom overnight. We feel like we’re squeezing in a workout or another load of laundry or another email or just a minute—one minute!—for ourselves. In this world, it’s easy enough to feel like Sabbath is just another “should” that we’re not getting to, another way that we’re running out of time. But what if there’s another way to see and experience Sabbath rest? What if there’s a wholeness, an expansiveness, and peace in understanding and exploring Sabbath that is available to us? What if we, as women, have a unique role in stewarding and even embodying the Sabbath in ways that can change our homes, our communities, and our world? Together, let’s enter into sacred time and explore this beautiful gift of a kind of time that is always more than enough. Rooting in the Scriptures, this session will be full of ritual, wrestling, rest, and resetting that will help us make Sabbath a part of our every day lives.
