HOT SPRINGS – More than 5500 individuals from 38 states and three foreign countries participated in the Beth Moore Living Proof Live event held Aug. 17-18 at Bank of the Ozarks Arena in Hot Springs.
More than 20 made salvation decisions and more than 100 women recommitted their lives to Jesus during the event. Moore’s last visit to Hot Springs was in 2000 and she appeared in Little Rock in 2004 and 2011.
City coordinator for the event was Betty Lacy from Hot Springs Baptist Church Hot Springs. The CORE team for the event included: Vickie Terry Legacy Church Hot Springs; Shannon Calhoun Church at Rock Creek Little Rock; Andrea Lennon Second Baptist Church Conway; Shari Edwards Park Hill Baptist North Little Rock; April McCullough First Assembly Church North Little Rock and Stephanie Ott Park Hill Baptist Church North Little Rock.
“These women worked tirelessly for a year to bring a flawless event to the women of Arkansas through many hours of prayer speaking emailing and calling out to the women of Arkansas. Even the night of the event we were still working to ensure that each woman received the personal attention they needed” Lacy said.
This year’s event marked the 20th anniversary of Living Proof Live and Moore who grew up in Arkadelphia personally chose for the event to be in Arkansas.
“The women of Arkansas are at the door of a revival in women's ministry and the event may have opened the door for the revival. Beth challenged each of us during the weekend to not be satisfied sitting in our safe environment but to boldly step forward and be a witness for Jesus. I know lives were changed as women worshiped and prayed together” Lacy said.
Additionally a YouLead Conference was help at Hot Springs Baptist Church Hot Springs Aug. 16-17. YouLead is an intense two-day training session for women's ministry leaders. Kelly King women's ministry specialist LifeWay Christian Resources served as leader for the event with more than 120 women from six states and two foreign countries participating.
