Fifth Inspire event set to encourage, equip
ARKANSAS Baptist women desiring to be inspired in their daily walk with Jesus should make plans now to attend the fifth annual Inspire women’s event from
8:30 a.m.-3:45 p.m., March 10, at Central Baptist Church, Conway, according to organizers.
Hosted by the Arkansas Baptist State Convention (ABSC), Inspire will provide powerful worship, dynamic speakers and practical breakout sessions for women of all ages and stages of life. The theme for this year’s event is Redeemed, which is designed to set the tone for the day as attendees focus on how to live out their faith in every area of life.
“We are excited to offer an opportunity for the women of Arkansas to gather for a one-day conference that has the potential to change the direction of their lives. We will worship together, pray together and open God’s Word together. As women, we tend to put the needs of others before our own,” said Andrea Lennon, Arkansas Baptists’ women’s ministry specialist, serving on the ABSC evangelism and church health team. “As a result, many women are running on empty. Inspire offers an opportunity for women to experience a fresh move of God in their lives. I truly believe that God will meet us in such a profound way at Inspire 2018 that everyone who attends will be refreshed, challenged and changed.”
Keynote speaker for the event is Marian Jordan Ellis, a women’s ministry speaker, author and founder of Redeemed Girl Ministries (redeemedgirl.org). Worship leaders are Cory and Stephanie Epps, from First Baptist Church, Benton, where Cory serves as worship and music associate and Stephanie serves on the worship team.
A variety of breakout sessions will be offered by Susan Goss, Donna Seal, Terry Carver, Lennon, Ginger Morgan, Shelly Chandler and Amy Hannon of Euna Mae’s. Each breakout session will relate to the theme for the day and will challenge the women to apply God’s Word deep in their hearts as well as in every area of their lives.
“I am already praying for the women who will attend Inspire! My prayer is for the women to be encouraged to embrace the life God has for them – a life of freedom, hope and power. We are redeemed through Jesus’ finished work on the cross, and daily we have the chance to live with meaning and purpose. God is a redeeming God! He forgives; He loves; He heals, and He empowers us to do His work. For just a moment, let’s imagine what it would be like for the women of Arkansas to live redeemed! The impact would be felt in every home, church and community. Not only that, the impact would be felt around our state, nation and world!” said Lennon.
