The fall ministry year will soon be off to a running start! By November, women involved in all kinds of ministry – whether in a church, parachurch organization, or in the community – often feel a need for a fresh burst of energy.

That’s when REVIVE comes to town! REVIVE is a half-day women’s conference, held in both Vancouver and Portland, that aims to transform ministry leaders from feeling like a sun-scorched land to a well-watered garden! (Isaiah 58:11)

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14

ABIDE: Revive the Passion!

Jesus never lacked passion.  He was passionate to heal, to forgive, to feed the multitudes, to teach, to show mercy, even to unleash his power over wind and waves, death and bondage. But his deepest  passion that empowered his whole life was his dependence on his Heavenly Father as painted by his own self-portrait; “the Son can do nothing by himself, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” (John 5:19) 

Waning in passion lately?  Longing to wake up each morning full of passion like Jesus? For your family? Your friendships?  Your calling as a woman involved in ministry?  But most of all for your intimate walk with Christ?

Our ABIDE: REVIVE the Passion conference promises to be a morning overflowing with:

  • Spirit-filled worship
  • Biblical insights from keynote speaker Kari Patterson
  • Encouraging fellowship with women who share similar ministry passions, and
  • A selection of 6 inspiring and empowering breakout sessions
