A Letter From The Conveners
Dear Women of God:
We pray that as you are visiting this website you and your families are healthy and keeping safe. This COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on our families, communities, ministries, and the world. Yet it is in the midst of emptiness and darkness that our God – El Bore created the earth. The challenge for each of us is to see the opportunities to build, to envision the “new” amidst social distancing, quarantine, and even death.
In Genesis 1:2 it says the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. We believe the Spirit of God is still hovering and will lead us through this season. When we selected the theme for this year Power M.O.V.E.s (Mobilize, Organize, Visualize, Energize), COVID-19 was not upon us. Because we serve a God that does all things well, this theme could not be more relevant. We encourage you as you are experiencing this mandatory pause on business, as usual, to seek the power of the Holy Spirit to re-imagine and envision new opportunities for your life, for your family, for your ministry and for your communities. We must ask ourselves the questions: What will be different post-COVID 19? What have I created or developed while the Holy Spirit was hovering in the midst of this darkness? What Power M.O.V.E.s am I preparing to make when the quarantine lifts?
While under quarantine, the Holy Spirit inspired us to launch “In the Secret Place.” These are Table Talk sessions where we are equipping listeners with the tools to navigate through this season to come out stronger, wiser, and ready to thrive post-COVID-19. In each Episode, the Conveners are joined by experts to chat about topics essential for us to empower our ministries and persons within our spheres of influence. We are also blessed to receive valuable and trusted medical information from a reliable physician, our very own Convener, Reverend Dr. Lisa Williamson. We encourage you to join us on these Zoom sessions. If you miss it they are posted under the WWM Table Talk tab and on our Facebook page.
After prayerful consideration we will host an abridged VIRTUAL Women W-Holy Prepared Conference on October 30th at 7pm and October 31st at 10:00am. Click on the flyer above for more information and to register today! And don't forget to purchase your tee-shirts which will be delivered to you in time for the conference! We encourage you to invite friends and colleagues to join us for this virtual Conference!
Prayerfully, we will gather again in the Pocono Mountains in 2021. Put the dates on your calendar now - November 4-6, 2021!
The Lord has need of each of us. Ministry should not look the same as our world will never be the same post-COVID-19. The work ahead requires your hands, your feet, and your heart. Let us build together!
See you on Zoom - October 30th!
You are a Woman Who Ministers!
Join the movement!
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.
~Min. Barbara Florvil
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.
