Fall Conference is Coming
Summer is many people’s favorite season. Especially my kids. They love having freedom from school and schedule. Other people love the freedom of the outdoors when the weather is better. Some people I know just need the sun for their mental health, and here in the Pacific Northwest, that's hard to come by at any other time.
Summer, however, is not my favorite season. I am not a hot-weather-person. And the season can feel isolating and lonely. I love Fall! It's the most helpful for my own mental health. Everything in my regular schedule starts back up, the air begins to get crisp, the colors in nature change, and Verity Conference happens!
Verity Fellowship has events throughout the year, but I think the Fall Conference is my favorite. It's an opportunity to spend a Friday evening and Saturday with hundreds of women from around the Northwest, to hear from the Word, and to be equipped and encouraged to take what you learn back to your local church and home. In all of this, you are taught how to point others to Jesus.
Every year a different speaker shows me how to find Jesus in the passages they teach. And they haven’t just informed me intellectually; God has worked through these women to reach into my heart and shape me. They’ve reminded me of God’s plan from the very beginning to redeem a people from their sin through the substitutionary death of his Son. And they have reminded me of my freedom in Christ to be in fellowship with him and with other believers as we pursue a greater understanding of Him and his Word.
But that’s not all. I get to spend time with other women who love Jesus, who desire to serve him well. I get to meet women from different ministry contexts, as well as women who minister in similar ones, and hear their stories of God’s faithfulness as they serve. I get to learn from many different, gifted, godly, lady Bible teachers as they teach in workshops related to my ministry. And I get to enjoy worship with women who are passionate about God’s Word and his church. There is something undeniably sweet about joining your voice with the voices of hundreds of other women, raised in worship to the King.
If you have never attended Verity’s Fall Conference before, I urge you to consider how you might make space and time for it in your schedule this October. It's worth it! More details about this year’s theme and speaker are forthcoming, and registration will open soon. As you continue your summer full of freedom and adventures, be on the lookout. Register. Come be equipped and encouraged with me as we seek Christ together.
