Join women leaders from all across the SBC for a time of encouragement, networking, and practical advice on how to lead well through every season of leadership. This event is for women who serve in a variety of ways across our convention from Sunday School teachers to seminary faculty, to minister’s wives and more we want you to gather with us to share life and stories of being a woman leader in the SBC.

The night will consist of a panel discussion including Kathy Litton, Missie Branch, and Susie Hawkins moderated by Jacki King. You will learn and be encouraged by their faithfulness, wisdom, and practical advice as a woman in the SBC.

After the panel, attendees will be able to network and share with other women leaders about how God is using them in their specific spheres of influence and share personal insights in their own leadership journeys. It is a night you do not want to miss. We can’t wait to gather with you!
