Thousands of women are expected to gather in Philadelphia at Wells Fargo Center on September 5-6 for a weekend of encouragement and Bible teaching– with a line-up of powerful speakers presenting transformative messages designed to help women move “From Survival to Revival.”
When Women of Faith posed the online question “How do you know when you need revival?” responses poured in from women candidly sharing their heartbreaks and disappointments. Typical answers ranged from betrayed “You’re totally devoted and your husband leaves with another woman anyway” to “feeling like ‘is this all [there is] to life?’” to despair “You feel lost and are worn out. You question where God is and if He has maybe forgotten you.”
Women of Faith connects with women to meet them where they are, to share wisdom and insight from the Bible that offers encouragement, inspiration, and the strength to go on. Women of Faith events are “a safe, engaging place to experience the love of God,” says speaker and Bible teacher Lisa Harper.
International speakers and bestselling authors Christine Caine and Sheila Walsh, Lisa Harper, Patsy Clairmont, Lysa TerKeurst and comedian Anita Renfroe are scheduled to headline the event. Special guests include Pete Wilson – founding and senior pastor of Cross Point Church - and concerts by GRAMMY award-winning Matthew West and five-time GMA (Gospel Music Association) Dove Award Female Vocalist of the Year Natalie Grant.
The “From Survival to Revival” 2014 theme is designed to help women experience the renewal that comes from spending time in the presence of God. Women will discover new joy and a fresh sense of purpose as they hear powerful Bible teaching and enter into authentic worship.
“We as women are pulled in so many directions, trying to do a million and one things for others that we often wonder how we’re going to make it through another day. We are in ‘survival mode,’ just getting from one day to the next,” speaker and author Sheila Walsh explains. “We want women to know that God has provided everything we need for every single day, and by experiencing His strength and power and walking side by side with Him, we can move beyond survival mode, to revival – a renewed sense of purpose and passion for life and our place in this world.”
