Main Conference Classes

69. Brave Women, Bold Moves
Block E || Sunday || 10:00AM

The Biblical narrative shines a light on brave women who stood up to power, acted against culture and took bold risks. Many made choices that changed the trajectory of history. Are there lessons in their stories that would propel us to be brave and move boldly to impact our churches and our nation? What do we need to believe about ourselves and our place in the church? In culture? In history? Men and women will come away from this session with greater clarity, confidence and courage to take bold moves and choose faith over fear.
