CONFERENCE

Our annual Women of Influence Conference for “Every Woman” is usually held in November. Hundreds of women gather from all over Southern New England to join together in sisterhood and community.

Through worship, relevant teaching, and intentional connection – we experienced life change. For many, this weekend becomes a memorializing moment where God comforts and challenges us in our journey with Him.

The format and structure of the conference varies based off of theme and purpose for that given year. We seek God’s direction for each year. God, what do you have for us this year?

Please note: all events are on pause due to COVID restrictions and concerns. We are currently evaluating other options for resourcing and connecting. Please stay tuned.

Influence One Day Conference:

Influence One Day is a conference for “every woman”. Every woman influences someone. We lead in our homes, workplaces, communities, and churches. If you want to grow in your influence and leadership, this event is for you! This one day retreat away is a time for soul and spiritual formation.

We will explore themes such as soul care, self care, and spiritual formation – most importantly the integration of our spiritual and emotional health so that we can better lead and love others for Christ.

This is a day for you to break away from the schedule and roles, discover sisterhood, and grow as one who influences others for Christ!

Please note: all events are on pause due to COVID restrictions and concerns. We are currently evaluating other options for resourcing and connecting. Please stay tuned.

We receive recommendations from the network office, section reps, and the National Women’s Ministries department. Primarily, however, much prayer, thought, and leadership discussion occurs for the final decision. The final decision is approved by the Network Office Leadership.

Women of Influence overall mission’s goals are set by early fall of the prior year, and then announced at the November conference. (For example, 2018’s goal is set in the Fall of 2017 and the goals are announced at the November 2018 conference where pledges are made.)

  1. Local church women’s groups may collectively make a group pledge (goal of funds raised). They work together through their local church offerings and fundraising events to meet this goal.
  2. Individuals desiring to make personal pledges or one-time gifts.
  3. One time gifts or sponsorships from various businesses or ministries.
  4. Offerings at various district women’s events.
