Ministry wives events at SBC in Dallas

By Kathy Ferguson Litton

The Southern Baptist Convention is just around the corner. It will convene in Dallas, Texas, June 12-13. Pre-convention events will kick off on Saturday June 9.

Since most of our Flourish followers are from the same tribe, we usually highlight events ministry wives may want to attend during our annual meeting each year. Unfortunately the annual Women’s Ministry Luncheon is sold out.

Monday, June 11, Ministry Wives Session, 8:45 – 11:45 a.m.
Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center on Level 2, Ballrooms A1-4

Lisa Harper, Beth Moore, and Sherri Pomeroy will speak at the Pastors’ Wives Conference on Monday, June 11, during the morning session of the Pastors’ Conference from 8:45 – 11:45 a.m. The morning will feature interviews and conversations with Beth Moore and her daughter, Amanda Moore Jones, as well as Pomeroy. Beth will speak on “The Long Walk of Faith in a Land of Thorns and Thistles,” a message about the challenges and blessings of ministry.

Sherri Pomeroy is the wife of Frank Pomeroy, pastor of First Baptist Church Sutherland Springs, the site of one of the worst mass shootings in United States history on Nov. 5, 2017, when a gunman took the lives of 26 worshippers. Among those killed was Annabelle, the 14-year-old daughter of Pomeroy. Pomeroy will be interviewed by Donna Gaines, wife of SBC President Steve Gaines.

Jones, Moore’s eldest daughter, is married to Curtis Jones, pastor of Bayou City Fellowship in Houston. The church launched in September 2011 and now has two campuses. Moore and Jones will be interviewed by Kathy Litton, Director of Planter Spouse Care at the North American Mission Board.

There is no cost for the Monday event and registration is not required. Women who serve in any facet of local church leadership, missions and denominational work are invited to attend.

Pastor’s Wives Expo

In the lobby outside the ballroom, a pastors’ wives expo will offer resources to “expose, engage, enlighten, and empower ministry wives” through displays for new Bible studies, ministry support, and evangelistic tools. There will be between 20 and 25 exhibitors focusing on ministries for women and to women.

Wednesday, June 13, SEBTS Women’s Leadership Breakfast, 7 – 9 a.m.
Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center on Level 3, Ballrooms D1-2

NAMB is partnering once again with Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary to host the Women’s Leadership Breakfast. Author, speaker, and Bible study writer Jen Wilkin will share a compelling message from God’s Word. Come enjoy a delicious breakfast and fellowship with other women serving in leadership roles.

This is a ticketed event, you may purchase tickets here.
