Different states, different denominations; women doing different kinds of ministry all gathered together in one place, that was this year’s Missional Women Conference.
My daughter and I had the privilege of flying to Denver for the 2016 Missional Women Conference. We met so many beautiful ladies; women flying in from Buffalo, pregnant moms, post college students, those in ministry to young people, leading in Young Life, and older women seasoned in their faith.
So many imparted wisdom during private conversations, classroom break-out sessions, from the stage, and while encircled around those small, intimate tables where vulnerable hearts lay honest, transparent, and abandoned to one another.
We gathered in a warehouse type-setting that was retro and elegant, new and old, updated and seasoned….just like those of us women united there.
The feel was casual, and inviting, welcoming and engaging, humble, while providing intimate time with God leading to personal revelations.
Here is a list of my own personal takeaways from this year’s Missional Women Conference:
