United announces second annual Women in Ministry and Leadership Conference


DATE:  July 10, 2014

DAYTON, OH – United Theological Seminary announces the second annual Deborah’s Daughters Women in Ministry and Leadership Conference, to be held October 22-24, 2014, at the seminary’s main campus at 4501 Denlinger Road, Dayton, OH and at the Hilton Garden Inn in Beavercreek, OH.

Recent research tells us that women are overworked in many areas of their lives – work, home and the church.  Many women, especially church women – both clergy and lay, have been taught that it is more godly to put others first and in so doing so, often deny themselves the very self-care that would make them more effective.

This year’s conference — Take Back Your Temple – Emotional, Spiritual, and Physical Well-being   — is designed to provide women (and men) with the tools they need for emotional, spiritual and physical well-being and to develop the skills that can help their ministries become the fruit of being with Jesus.  Foundational to this conference is the understanding that in order to love and serve others with the love of Christ we must love and take care of ourselves — emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Conference keynote speakers include international church conference speaker, bestselling author and speaker Geri Scazzero, who with her husband co-founded Emotionally Healthy Spirituality; and international women’s conference leader and church planter Beverly Martin.

For more details, a complete list of speakers and to register, please visit www.deborahsdaughters.com or www. united.edu/deborahs-daughters-take-back-your-temple/.  Course credit, CEUs and a one-day streaming option are also available.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
