For the first time, CEP took the Women in the Church leadership Conference on the road. It was truly a mountain top experience as over two hundred women traveled to Lookout Mountain, Georgia. March 10-12, to the PCA’s Covenant College.
PresWIC, Bible study, and local women’s ministries leaders, including PCA staff women, gathered to be equipped corporately and individually for kingdom ministry. They were part of this annual CEP event that trains leaders to pass on their training in order that every woman know Christ personally and be committed to extending His kingdom in her life, home, church, community, and throughout the world.
As we listened to the women who came, we heard:
“Leadership 2009 blended theology and truth-centered teaching from speakers and workshops with many practical applications for implementing ministry. Women left not just ‘inspired,’ but equipped with ideas and resources for leadership.”
“Covenant College was a great venue – [it] worked so well with the Family Matters theme. The quietness of the mountain top campus and the absence of outside stimuli greatly enhanced this conference.”
“As a pastor’s wife, fairly new to the PCA, I walked away with a better understanding of the regional discipleship of PresWIC, the PCA. and covenant theology.”
“Regional training sessions with women from my region of the United States were as beneficial as the plenary sessions.”
“Relationship building with women across the PCA is an important and beneficial equipping I am taking home.”
“Networking at the denominational level was so helpful.”
“Strong covenant theology from our LT pastor; Stephen Estock.”
“I loved the beautiful women who shared their testimonies!”
For those churches not able to attend, begin now to think, pray, and plan about attending leadership Training 2010, February 25-27, in Atlanta, Georgia. Be strategic in looking at the women in your church and region. Who needs to be trained, encouraged, and equipped?
For those churches with representation, CEP encourages you to give them an opportunity to share what they learned and brought back to the local church.
As the PCA continues to grow, there is an increasing need for the ministries of Christian Education and Publications to work with the local church in raising up a generation of leaders and teachers to build upon a firm foundation.
Please join us in kingdom ministry.
