Each year Women of Faith takes a group of amazing women filled with God-given talents and gifts to share with other women across the U.S. Other “women of faith” are able to hear these inspiring stories, testimonies, drama productions, participate in praise & worship and fellowship with sisters. Last year’s theme was “Imagine”, and this year it is “Over the Top”. I got the opportunity to attend the 2-day spirit-filled event last year and was blessed by the testimonies of Sheila Walsh and Karen James; but those were only two of an entire host of great speakers during “Imagine” like the charming and witty Marcus Buckingham, determined “Biggest Loser” contestant Michelle Aguilar, hilarious Lisa Harper and veteran Luci Swindoll. The captivating Nicole Johnson did a few monologues that not only tugged at the heart but dealt with real-life issues many women face. A pregnant and glowing Natalie Grant blew us away with her songs of praise and personal testimony while Mary Mary gave a concert encouraging ladies from all over the metroplex to never give up and never be ashamed to represent the “God in Me. The P&W team leads out in an energy-filled worship in song as we begin each program and takes us out of the arena just the same with a song left in your heart.
This year is no different, although they claim to be going “Over the Top”! Dallas is pleased to have Women of Faith return to the American Airlines Center on August 26th and 27th. There’s something for everyone whether you’re a young single woman, a divorcee, a newlywed, mom-to-be or even a seasoned woman of faith who’s still growing and learning more about how God can work in her life. Every woman has their own story and their own daily challenges. This is a place where you can gather together with your sisters to share those experiences but also regain strength and enrich your soul to keep pushing on.
This year’s lineup for Over the Top includes: Patsy Clairmont, Marilyn Meberg, Lisa Whelchel, Sandi Patty and Brenda Warner. Our “drama girl” for the weekend will be Katharine Everett and musical artists Amy Grant and Mandisa with special guest Andy Andrews.
Mary Mary performed one of their newest tracks last August (Imagine 2010)..
Here are a few pics from last year’s Women of Faith Conference..
The cost for each individual is $99, and if you want to bring your Women’s Ministries group, coworkers, fellow sisters or any group of women (10 or more) you each get a discount of $10 and pay $89 per person. Lunch is also included in the package. For about two days you can tune out the worries from work, home and other stresses of life and have a spiritual getaway to gain the victory on Victory Ave in Dallas. Have your soul warmed and connect with other women from North Texas as well as other parts of the world. Plan for a full Friday and Saturday (9am – 10am & 8am – 5pm) with multiple sessions and breaks in between to just let your hair down and experience the love of Christ with other women who share a common faith no matter your color, size, weight or age.
Join other Women of Faith as we discover that God really does love us more than we realize or can even Imagine. He can bless you exceedingly and do more for you than you can think to ask! Unrestricted…He’s just Over the Top!
Ask for a day off work from now – Friday, August 26th – for “Over the Top” at the American Airlines Center.
