In 2006, God placed in one woman’s heart the desire for churches in the Evansville area to join together to host a woman’s conference so that women of all ages would have the opportunity to accept Jesus as Savior, to request prayer for life’s issues, or to connect to other women in an area Bible study. In November of 2010, fifteen area churches banded together to bring Jennifer Rothschild’s Fresh Grounded Faith Conference to the area. That event hosted sixty churches, representing 1490 women, who worshipped and gleaned at the sold-out event. Over 100 decisions were made.
God inspired us to offer our own event of this type for women in this area. We began praying God’s plan for 2011, and He led us to create Living the Faith Women’s Conference. The churches began to rally once more, and we invited best-selling author Lysa TerKeurst and Worship Leader Laura Story to come. Moving to a larger venue, we again sold out with 2000 women. The women encountered Jesus Christ and hundreds made decisions to accept Jesus as Savior, to lay down old hurts and to take up Christ’s identity, and to seek ways to continue the growth that was begun at the Conference.
In 2013 Living the Faith Women’s Conference again welcomes Jennifer Rothchild’s Fresh Grounded Faith. The featured speaker is best selling author and bible study teacher Jennifer Rothschild. She will be joined by best selling author and speaker Patsy Clairmont, and recording artist Meredith Andrews as the worship leader.
