Ministry Wives Luncheon

Tuesday June 16th Noon- 1:30pm
Hyatt Regency Hotel-Regency Ballroom

The annual SBC Ministers’ Wives Luncheon is a time for wives from across our country to come together to be encouraged, strengthened, and challenged in the call they share with their husband. The theme for 2015 will be Radiant Ministers’ Wives.

Angie Smith will be the luncheon speaker. She says: My greatest passion is to make the Bible feel accessible and relevant, and to share my own ups and downs along the way to encourage others in their faith.” She is noted writer and speaker you won’t want to miss. Plus, Taranda Greene will provide special music

2015 Women’s Expo

Monday and Tuesday June 15th and 16th
Hyatt Regency Hotel in South Foyer

The Expo is lead by Diana Nix of Contagious Joy in conjunction with the Monday Morning Pastor’s Wives Session and concludes at the Minister’s Wives Tuesday Luncheon.

The purpose of the Expo is to expose, engage, enlighten, and empower women with helpful resources such as new Bible Studies, ministry support, and evangelistic tools.  In addition, our hope is that information gathered will not only be an encouragement for their journey but will inspire them as they go home to family and the women of their churches. Stop in to get informed and connected.

Flourish will have a display in the Expo. Please find us in the South Foyer of the Hyatt Regency. You can meet Christine Hover and get a glimpse of her new book. Plus we will have prayer printables and handy cell phone wallets for giveaways. Come see us!
