conference experience

Over eighteen years ago, Heaven opened, revealing a glimpse of something MAGNIFICENT – and a powerful Sisterhood Revolution began in the heart of a small company of faith-filled girls. And now today this movement encompasses thousands upon thousands of women of all ages and seasons of life from varied backgrounds and history…

GATHERING and uniting as one from all around the world. This is a Sisterhood that welcomes and celebrates your unique design – and all that you were created to be!

So I’m asking you, my friends, that you be joined together in perfect unity – with one heart, one passion, and united in one love. Walk (on the path) together with one harmonious purpose and you will fill my heart with unbounded joy. Phil 2:2

Together as a flourishing, diverse and beautiful Sisterhood, we are walking with one purpose – hand in hand into the future with bold and confident faith.
