Women in Ministry conferences provide encouragement, ministry equipping, networking opportunities, and support in exploring women’s leadership roles in a variety of contexts. Women in ministry conferences are for women, men, students, ministry professionals, and lay persons.
The 2017 Texas Baptist Women in Ministry Conference is to be held February 10-11, 2017 at Logsdon Seminary in Abilene. The conference theme, Realizing Hope, will explore what it means for women to realize hope for ministry opportunities, but also to encourage people to take an active role in the realization of that hope.
The purpose of the conference is to encourage all who are called to or serving in ministry, and to facilitate conversations about advocating for women in leadership throughout the church.
The conference will include sessions, panel discussions, breakouts on topics related to women in ministry and ministry equipping, and networking opportunities.
The plenary speaker for this year’s conference is Reverend Dr. Renita Weems. Dr. Weems is a biblical scholar, academic administrator, writer, ordained minister, and a public intellectual whose scholarly insights into modern faith, biblical texts, and the role of spirituality in everyday lives maker her a highly sought-after writer and speaker.
The conference preacher will be Reverend Dr. Meredith Stone. Dr. Stone teaches ministry and scripture at Logsdon School of Theology, Hardin-Simmons University, and serves as Director of Ministry Guidance.
