Alvarado, Dr. Toni (3).jpg

 A.  Toward the Resurrection of “Self”! 

Reverend Dr. Antoinette Alvarado

Grand Ballroom, Lower Level

Guilt and shame are the biggest contributors to broken hearts and relationships. They affect our health, attitude and walk with the Lord. Every woman should be loosed from the yokes that rob them of the peace of mind and self-esteem, and arise from the emotional tomb of the past and move ahead to a God ordained destiny.

 B.  The Holy Spirit’s Role in My Life

Evangelist Vandalyn Kennedy

Hunter, Bishop Millicent (2).jpg

 C.  Reset

Bishop Millicent Hunter

​Grand Ballroom, Lower Level

Often our suffering and disappointment will push us into places of anger, resentment, despondency and or anxiety. But by faith, we have to choose to love people in spite of the fact that we have been hurt, disillusioned and let down.  Spirit-filled living demands that we “overcome evil with good,” and with the help of the Lord, we can get victory over our ungodly emotions.

Ingram, Reverend Jessica (2).jpg

 D.  The Call to Disciplined Discipleship

Reverend Dr. Jessica Ingram

Harris, Carla (4).jpg

 E.  Meet The Boss  

Minister Carla Harris

Grand Ballroom, Lower Level

Working in corporate America is a mixture of joy, hard work, and problem solving.  In addition, there are the issues of racial discrimination, sexism, and personal demands.  Women in the deep waters of professional growth and are moving toward excellence must be wise and informed to find and maintain success.

Ellis, First Lady Crisette (3).jpg

 F.  Renew

Lady Crisette Ellis

In order to live life to the fullest, we have to pay attention to spiritual things.  Growing deeper in the faith is the best insurance for a fulfilling personal relationship with God that will make a difference in every aspect of our lives. Learn some important steps to a renewed spiritual life.

Hale, Reverend Cynthia (1).jpg

 I  The Power of Surrender

Reverend Dr. Cynthia Hale

Grand Ballroom, Lobby Level

One of the most difficult things in a person’s life is to realize that there are some things that you cannot do anything about. The thing that you prayed for will not come to past. The relationship is over.  The disease is what you must learn to live with.  That which was will never be again.  We grieve, but then we must surrender to a reality that will always be filled with the presence of God. 

Brown, Reverend Danielle (5).jpg

 II  Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Reverend Dr. Danielle Brown

Grand Ballroom, Lobby Level

There comes a time in every woman’s life when we have to come face to face with what it means to bring our full selves to the world.  We have been designed to shape, create, plan and lead, and we must intentionally see God’s image in ourselves and others.   That realization helps us to see and share our own gifts, as we make room for the gifts of our sisters.

Copeland, Reverend Dr. Claudette A. (1).jpg

 III  Keeping Our Emotions Healthy

Reverend Dr. Claudette Copeland

Grand Ballroom, Lobby Level

Why do you feel the way you feel? To what degree are you controlled by your feelings.  Do you lose your temper too easily or let certain people to make you flip out over trivialities?  Do you hold on to anger or unforgiveness too long? Are your private conversations with yourself encouraging or harsh?  To be human is to have emotions and our emotions are meant to protect and motivate us, and our emotions are always meant to be governed by Godly principles.

Browning, Pastor Jo Ann (3).jpg

 AA  Prayer That Gives New Life to the Soul

Reverend Dr. Jo Ann Browning

Salon D, Lobby Level

Divorce, painful break-ups or wounding relationships can cause us to shut down and close our hearts to love and trust. But prayer is the means by which I can leave the past behind and advance toward the woman that I must become.

Ellis, Dr. Sabrina (2).jpg

 BB  Where Is God In All of This?

Reverend Dr. Sabrina Ellis

Massachusetts Room, Lobby Level

These last three years have been challenging on so many levels.  Pandemic and post-pandemic issues and 21st century living is making us ask ourselves what is God’s will for us in all of this?  I want to hear God’s voice so that I can experience the totality of God’s abundance, take the limits off my life and please God in all that I do.

Riley, Pastor Sandra (4).jpg

 CC  Fighting Powers, Principalities, and Spiritual Wickedness

Evangelist Sandra Riley

Salon F, Lobby Level

Spiritual warfare demands that we acquire a real understanding of what we are struggling against.  There are forces that are always at work against the redemptive powers of God, but the Holy Spirit is the power that breaks every yoke.

Alvarado, Dr. Toni (3).jpg

 DD  Learning to Live a Life of Radical Faith

Reverend Dr. Antoinette Alvarado

Connecticut Room, Lobby Level

So often we feel like everything is falling apart, and people wound.   But faith is believing that your purpose is in God and that you can live in God’s victory, regardless.  We have to choose to love people in spite of the fact that we have been hurt, disillusioned and let down.  Faith demands that we “overcome evil with good,” and know that whatever we go through, the Lord is in it with us.

Ellis, First Lady Crisette (3).jpg

 EE  I Am Free 

Lady Crisette Ellis

Boardroom 3, Mezzanine Level

Statistics show that guilt, shame and an inability to accept the forgiveness of God is one of the greatest sources of depression and mental illness. Every believer must know that when we repent, God totally and freely forgives us, and does not want us to carry the burden of the sins from which we have been released.  We must accept God’s love, believe His Word and find the inner peace that He gives.

Ingram, Reverend Jessica (2).jpg

 FF  The Holy Spirit’s Role in My Life

Reverend Dr. Jessica Ingram

Rhode Island Room, Lower Level 

The Holy Spirit is often spoken of in church, but many Christians are not clear about the role of the Holy Spirit in their personal and public lives. Let us explore the intended work and importance of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.

Hunter, Bishop Millicent (2).jpg

 HH  A New Day, A New Me

Bishop Millicent Hunter

Salon E, Lower Level 

Dealing with change can be a stressful endeavor.  Whether it is dealing the loss of a loved one, divorce, empty nest, retirement, job loss, or a loss of health, understanding who I am and who I am becoming is something that I must do to become or remain stable and emotionally healthy.    

Hale, Reverend Cynthia (1).jpg

 II  A Get Out of the Boat Faith

Reverend Dr. Cynthia Hale

Salon C, Lower Level 

So often we stay in our comfort zone when it comes to trusting God, experiencing a dynamic move of the Spirit, and seeing some of the gifts of the Spirit in operation.  Often, our faith in God is strong, but we don’t think we are able to enter into new realms of worship, operating in the gifts or in our service. In order to enlarge our comfort zone, we must have the information needed to grow and handle every situation.

Weems, Rev. Renita Weems (3).jpg

 JJ  My Father’s Legacy

Reverend Dr. Renita Weems

Conference Room 5, Lower Level 

The psychological and emotional reality of a father’s presence or absence in our lives is undeniable.  Many women struggle to appropriately process their father’s positive and/or negative influence in their lives.  To be healthy and whole, let’s explore the truth about our father’s influence has shaped and is shaping us relationally, professionally, and spiritually.

Brown, Rev. Tyann (1).jpg

 KK  Confident and Secure

Reverend Tyann Brown

Conference Room 4, Lower Level 

Many women struggle with feelings of insecurity and self-doubt, but that can be particularly true of single women.  No matter how accomplished, intelligent or attractive, feelings of fear, rejection, and inadequacy can eat away at the confidence of those who are unmarried.  Let’s talk about how to face fears, maintain dignity and find soul-satisfying security that comes with loving God and self. For single women, never married.

Showell, Bishop Carolyn (4).JPG

One of the most difficult things in a person’s life is to realize that there are some things that you cannot do anything about. The thing that you prayed for will not come to past.
