Overflow for Reach and Thrive!
May 17-19 in Waterloo!
Ladies, you are invited to come to the “Kingdom Roots” Conference. The purpose of the Kingdom Roots conference is two-fold: to bless the persecuted Church, and to mentor women in growing through adversity. In Matthew 13:21 Jesus said, “…but since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.” The conference name, “Kingdom Roots”, is born out of this passage. This conference is one where women of all levels of Christian maturity can grow.
One thing that becomes obvious in the presence of the persecuted is their remarkable joy. There is an unearthly joy that fills those who have experienced God’s nearness in the furnace of great trails. Many have remarked that it is through moments of laughter they are able to cope with the pain and struggle. With this in mind, we are blessed to have Wendy Farha with us. Wendy is a Montreal-based comedian who has learned the joy of walking through the fire with our Saviour. Wendy will begin our day with laughter as she leads us into more intimate moments and prepares our hearts to receive the message of the persecuted.
The testimony of Haik Hovespian speaks profoundly on the DVD, A Cry from Iran. Haik was martyred for his faith in Christ. His wife, Takoosh Hovespian, carries on the ministry of spreading the Good News by sharing how the Lord has brought her through the violent loss of her husband. Takoosh will be candidly sharing in one of our featured workshops and also in the main auditorium during the afternoon session.
Daphne BevAqua, whose voice is presently featured on many Canadian Christian radio stations, will lead us in worship. Julie Bonany, a home-schooling mother of three and a women’s ministry leader of 10 years, will bless us with her delightful balance of wisdom and humour. And, of course, Voice of the Martyr’s very own Ingrid Hajen will present two workshops, taking us through a special time of prayer for the persecuted.
Ladies, please invite your friends and family for a day you won’t soon forget: May 25th at the Churchill Meadows Christian Church.
