As children of God, we are called to not conform to the ways of this world, but to rise above, and be transformed through spiritual growth, accountability, and discipleship.  Each one of us has a special plan from God, one that is way better than you can even think.  As we become transformed into a godly women, our lives are evident of Christ to those around us.

Join us September 22 -23 for a women’s conference at First Baptist Church Jennings as we focus on transforming into the women God has called us to become.

The theme of this conference is “Transform: The Desires of Your Heart” drawing from Psalm 20:4 and Romans 12:2. The conference will be focused on transforming the lives of women in our community through the study and love of the word of God and aligning their lives with the God’s will. Throughout the conference we will meet for large group teachings, small group teaching, and discussion of specific issues we face.

Our prayer is that strong relationships will be sparked and those in attendance will be uplifted and encouraged find healing.
