A Letter From The Conveners
To Our Beloved Sisters in Christ,
This year we celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Women W-Holy Prepared Conference! We are thankful to God for God’s many blessings upon Women Who Minister - this movement to empower women to transform their communities and places of worship. Now we are preparing to meet each of you at the Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort for an anointed time of ministry and fellowship.
This year’s theme is “Next Level Living” taken from Deuteronomy 30:16 - “What I am commanding you today is to love the Lord your God, walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, so that you may live and multiply. Then the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess.” The Lord is calling His daughters in this season to live on another level.
Once again we are excited to have seasoned women of God like the Rev. Dr. Leslie Callahan and the Bishop. Dr. Julia McMillan leading our conference in preaching and teaching. And of course, worship will be led by the gifted and anointed Minister Nicole Phifer.
Many of our sisters, who have participated from year one, can attest to the continual presence of the Holy Spirit in worship, plenaries and workshops and the opportunity for each of us to go higher and deeper in the Lord. We expect to be elevated, equipped and empowered to continue fulfilling the ministry calling that God has ordained us to accomplish.
We dare not say it is the year of the woman. Our time has always been. We now must embrace what the Holy Spirit has known all along that we have been called and ordained before we were in our mother’s womb to be warring, worshipping women for these perilous times. We are charged to intercede and seek justice on behalf of those who are living with “their backs against the wall”, as theologian Howard Thurman proclaim.
The conference dates are October 24th to 26th. We recommend that you secure your lodging and register ASAP! Rooms are going quickly and we want to ensure that you will not miss this glorious encounter with our Lord in the mountains! We look forward to seeing you in October.
Please look out for conference updates and notes from the Conveners and invite a sister to join the movement. Remember, you are a Woman Who Ministers! We await what God will do in us and through us this year; so expect the unexpected!
WWM has been a defining ministry in my walk with God. I have been affirmed and poured into as a minister but also as a sister in Christ who needs the support of her peers and elders as she grows. Everytime WWM meets, I leave changed for the better.

2 Peter 1:5-8, 10
5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control,perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 10 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble.
