At ‘Between Us,’ ministers’ wives have the chance to mingle with other ministers’ wives who are walking the same road they are. All of the session leaders and worship leaders are ministers’ wives too, so it provides the opportunity to be with other women who truly understand their joys, challenges and pressures. They will come away from this conference feeling totally understood and equipped to walk in their calling.
There will be panel discussions, breakouts and door prizes.
Early Bird Registration for ‘Between Us’ for individuals is $79 per person. Deadline is July 26, 2013.
