Stages, Phases & Places
Connecting Our Call to God’s Plan for Our Lives

A SPECIAL INVITATION:
You are invited by Rev. Dr. Yvonne Delk and Rev. Dr. Bernice Powell Jackson:

     As an African American woman in ministry, God has a plan for your life focused on your particular stage, phase or place in ministry. We extend to you a personal invitation to reflect on your call and God’s plan in the company of a circle of sisters offering testimonies of insight and support. Join us in a sacred place that renews and empowers for a spirit-filled time of re-membering, renewal and celebration.

     Join with your sisters in ministry for a powerful, spirit-filled experience on the sacred grounds of the Franklinton Center at Bricks. Connect, explore where you are in ministry now or where you hope to be soon. Be renewed by community, inspired preaching, thoughtful discussions, and laughter.

     Intended for African American women who are authorized ministers in the United Church of Christ (ordained, commissioned, licensed), seminary students, youth ministers, missionaries, and those in discernment for ministry. Sisters in ministry from other denominations are welcome.

     Limited scholarship assistance is available. For more information on this or anything else about the conference, please contact the Rev. Dr. Willie Mae Hawkins via email at admin@drwilliemae.com or by phone at (252) 445-5258.
