ARISE: Ignite Compassion

Kind-hearted, sympathetic, compassionate, yet courageous, bent on influencing our world for good – these are descriptions we long others might post on our FB page, aren’t they?  But in our broken and bruised world with its excessive, all-consuming demands and warped worldviews, indifference – even apathy – may attempt to blanket our souls! 

Longing instead to make your life count for the kingdom?  To arise to help the helpless? the lonely, the lost? To be overcomers so that “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven?”

Come join us for . . .ARISE: IGNITE COMPASSION

Mark your calendars for this one-day IGNITE conference! We’ll explore our theme of ARISE through:

  • Bible-focused keynote messages taught by Bethany Allen
  • Meaningful corporate worship
  • Powerful prayer
  • An array of dynamic breakout sessions designed to call and equip you to ARISE!

Don’t come alone! Intensify the impact of this faith-inspiring day by sharing it with those you love ~ your friends, your co-workers, your sisters, your neighbors ~ ARISE together to become Kingdom influencers! 

Psa. 10:12  Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless.

Lunches: This year we decided to experiment with a new catering company called Kam&Kam Catering. They’ve been part of the Western Seminary circle for a few events now. The boxed lunches are $10 each and include either the sandwich, chips, fruit, cookie and beverage OR the salad, fruit, cookie and beverage. There is a Gluten-free option available for an extra $2. All lunches must be paid for with your online registration. We will not allow lunches to be pre-ordered and paid for at the door. We understand that this might make it difficult for groups/churches who plan on paying in one lump sum. However, paying for lunches up front makes it easier not only for us, but also the catering company. We are sorry for any inconvenience!

Keynote Speaker: Our Keynote Speaker for ARISE: Ignite Compassion is Bethany Allen! Bethany is a sought after Bible expositor and one of the Women’s Transformational Leadership (WL) instructors at Western Seminary. She is also the Pastor of Spiritual Formation and Leadership at Bridgetown Church. 

Breakouts and Speakers: Our morning and afternoon breakouts and speaker pages will be updated soon so you will be to learn more about the breakouts we’re offering this year! You will be able to attend one morning breakout and one afternoon breakout, since morning and afternoon breakouts are all offered simultaneously.

Special Guests:Delighting us again with their Spirit-filled choreography will be Joy of Dance, along with our very own IGNITE worship team led by Lisa Reiff! Joining us this year as our special guest vocalists, will be The BROWN Sisters! We’ll also be co-moderated by our much-loved KPDQ queen, Georgene Rice and courageous WCM Director Phyllis Bennett.
