FEBRUary 2018: A GATHERING OF WOMEN
By Tanya Lopez, Regional Disciples Women Ministry Staff
Interregional Women’s Conference Updates!
January was such a busy month! It is already the second month of the new year and I can’t hardly believe how much has happened in just one month! I just got back from spending time in Atlanta with the Disciples Women’s Leadership Council. This group of women leaders from across the country and Canada get together for a weekend to oversee, coordinate, and plan the various aspects of ministry for the women of the Christian Church Disciples of Christ. This is a time where we get to share resources with one another, build partnerships and work together for the sustainability and the continued impact that Disciples Women’s Ministries makes in the life of the church.
This year was especially exciting as I was able to gather with the team that has been actively planning the Wild Women of the West Women’s Conference that is happening April 6-8th in Scottsdale Arizona! Among the updates we were able to work on are the Saturday Tracks that will be offered. Instead of traditional workshops and breakout sessions, we will having extended time together in different tracks that will deal with specific themes. There will be a greater opportunity to deepen discussions, share resources and ideas, and learn together!
The Tracks will include:
Wild Women! We are REALLY excited to announce our "tracks" to you! Instead of workshops, we are having extended opportunities for you to participate in tracks for a few hours according to your interest. Here are the titles and leaders -- we are excited.
