Claim Your Purpose at our fifth annual Women’s Conference.

We believe every person has a superpower – that unique fingerprint of God that makes you special and strong. Yet, many of us struggle to discover our true purpose in life. What does it mean to find our purpose? Are some people more likely to discover their purpose than others? What does God say about our purpose?

Join us for the Claim It Women’s Conference to explore this idea of purpose more deeply. We understand that as we move through different phases of our lives, we may feel lost and uncertain about our direction. Whether you are…
• Entering college
• Looking at retirement
• Navigating life as a new mom
• Leaving a relationship
• Switching careers
• Languishing after covid
• Helping adult children head into the world
• Caretaking a loved one

Today is all about you! It’s time for you to embrace your unique strengths and Claim Your Purpose!

This event features inspiring keynotes, interactive workshops, networking opportunities, time for self-reflection, sisterhood, and a supportive community. By the end of the day, you will feel confident that your life has a meaningful purpose. And, you will be equipped to take the first step toward fulfilling your unique calling.
