OHCW Conference LIVE AUDIENCE Sneak Preview!

(For info. on the Baton Rouge event,
please keep scrolling down until you get to it.)

Ladies, did you enjoy last year’s first annual Open Hearts in a Closed World online conference? (If you missed it, you can still catch all of the sessions here.)

Well, the conference is back again this summer, July 12-16, and all of us at OHCW hope you’ll join us! The conference sessions will air each day on the AGTV app, YouTube, IGTV (Instagram), Facebook, and this year, here on the blog.

The conference is totally free and you don’t have to register or sign up. Just tune in each day at your convenience and watch the teaching sessions. You could even gather up some friends and watch together!

The theme of this year’s conference is Reverence in Radical Times, and our focal passage will be Titus 2:3-5:

Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.

Titus 2:3-5

For more details on the conference, follow Open Hearts in a Closed World on Instagram, or join the OHCW Facebook group and ask the conference organizers directly.

All teaching sessions for the conference will be pre-recorded, so if you live in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, area (or if you can get here!) we’ve got a special “sneak preview” treat for you!

You are cordially invited to be part of the
LIVE AUDIENCE
for the taping of my teaching session:

Teach What Is Good:
Discipling Younger Women
in the 21st Century

Tuesday, April 27, 2021
7:00-8:00 p.m.
Woodlawn Baptist Church
5805 Jones Creek Rd.
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
FREE admission ~ Women only
No childcare will be provided
Please comment below or contact me
if you’re coming so we can get a head count.

As a special treat just for our Baton Rouge audience, local hymnist,
Jillian McNeely will be providing our pre-session worship music.

The teaching session is relevant to both the “older women” and the “younger women” of Titus 2, so gather up a group of friends and make it a girls’ night out! You might even want to plan to go out to eat afterwards at New York Pizza and Pasta, Outback, City Cafe, or another nearby restaurant. And if your husband wants to drop you off and take the kids for a bite, McDonald’s, Burger King, Cane’s, and Taco Bell are all just down the street.

Masks are not required, though you’re welcome to bring one from home and wear it if you like. We anticipate that there will be plenty of space for those who would like to social distance (also not required).

If you have any specific questions about Woodlawn’s facilities or location, you may contact the church directly.

Come on out and let’s look at what it means to be Titus 2 women!

Nashville, AR, Conference: POSTPONED

UPDATE (February 15)

Ladies- I’m so sorry to inform you that this conference has been postponed due to inclement weather. We are working on setting up another date – hopefully soon. When the details are settled, I’ll let you know here on the blog. Until then, if you know someone who was planning to attend the conference this weekend, please let her know of the cancellation. Thanks.

Ladies, if you’re in the Nashville, ARKANSAS, area (please note, this is not in Tennessee), you’re invited to attend Maranatha Baptist Church’s women’s conference on Saturday, February 20.

I’ll be speaking on discernment and living under the authority of Scripture instead of being slaves to our emotions. We’ll also have a fun Q&A session to round out the day.

The conference is free and includes a continental breakfast and lunch, but you must RSVP directly to the church (not to me – contact info above) by the…

Registration Deadline – February 13

…so the hostesses can get a good headcount for food and materials.

If Arkansas is too far away for you, check out the calendar of events on my Speaking Engagements page (in the blue menu bar at the top of this page) and see if you can find one of my conferences in your neck of the woods.

If you still aren’t able to find an event to attend, host your own! I’d love to come speak to the ladies of your church or Christian organization. Now is the time to start planning for summer and fall conferences. Need a little help planning? I’ve got tips!

I hope to see you soon at an event near you!
