July 21-23 – Women’s Ministry Conference
As a Christian woman, you mentor when you lovingly share your faith and life through relationships, building up fellow believers and showing Christ to unbelievers. But sharing our faith through our lives has become challenging in a culture that is increasingly hostile to biblical Christianity. This conference’s aim is to help you effectively mentor in today’s world. The conference is at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon. Find more info or register here.
