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.

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

REVIVE

Did you know that cats have an inbuilt balancing system called the “righting reflex” that allows them to orient themselves to land on their feet? 2021 has been a disorienting year in which many of us have been tempted to lose sight of our own inbuilt balancing system, Jesus Christ, the anchor for our souls.

The Women’s Center for Ministry REVIVE 2021 conference has been designed to help every woman involved in ministry “land on her feet” as she heads into 2022, even if another pandemic assaults us!

If this past year has left you feeling more disconnected from the Lord, your close friends, your church family, and your identity as a kingdom influencer, then you are not alone! REVIVE: A Call to Reconnect – Fresh Hope for Renewal, offers each of us an individual and corporate fresh call and the tools needed to reorient us to our own “righting reflex.”

Our hope for reconnection is in Jesus Christ, who is our living hope! So, come be freshly reconnected, re-energized, restored, forgiven, embraced, and loved by Jesus and women who are seeking Christ-centered community at…

COVID-19 Guidelines: We will be meeting in-person and following CDC guidelines. We’ll all be masked up, unless CDC says it is safe to remove them! But those masks won’t keep us from a spiritual high we can experience together as Jesus, the anchor for our souls, meets us. Who but he can breathe fresh hope for healing into every fiber of our being!

Keynote Speaker, Whitney Woollard:  We are so blessed to have Whitney Woollard, a fun-loving, gifted Bible expositor, to help us glean profound insight into the story of Naomi’s return to her homeland after a devastating season of loss and lament.

Breakouts and Speakers: Our breakouts and speaker page will give you a glimpse into topics chosen to help equip you for a successful and joyous COVID recovery and relaunch! Our speakers are some of our favorites, carefully selected to bring you fresh hope, to renew your zeal for Christ and stimulate your passion to reconnect with our Lord, his family and his world–– that, now, more than ever, is in desperate need of our Savior.  

You will be able to attend one breakout during our REVIVE morning. However, conference attendees will receive audio links to all the breakouts several weeks after REVIVE. Also, on our REVIVE morning, following the breakout hour, your new friends from your table-passion group will report on breakout snapshots they appreciated, giving insight into breakouts you’ll not want to miss when the audios go LIVE. 

Special Guests:

  • Portland: Leading us with her Spirit-filled worship will be Lisa Reiff, joined by her anointed team members, Joi Haley and Steph Zaganiacz!
  • Vancouver: We will be led into worship by an amazing team of women including Amira Onuoha, Lauren Franco, and Bella Tolentino.
