Planning is well underway and dates have been announced for a two-day comprehensive Women’s Conference, November 3-4, 2017.
The brainchildren of the conference are a mother-daughter duo that admit, it almost didn’t happen. Jimma Holder, who is a principal by profession, explained that with her job, she sees a lot of mommas struggling with so many so many stressors and multi-tasking. Her heart began to feel so burdened that she felt moved one night to tackle a conference that could pour back into these women what the world was stripping them of. Like so many, she discounted the thought.
Until… her daughter, Mika Harry, contacted her the very next day saying that she too had felt moved to organize and host a women’s conference. “That was all the confirmation we needed that this was something God wanted to happen in Mena, Arkansas this year.”
The duo hit the ground running and were able to quickly form a team to begin putting together the nuts and bolts of the conference that will include guest speakers, worship music, and small break-out sessions that will focus on more specific issues women may be struggling with.
Harry stressed that they are hoping to attract women from all walks of life, “We believe every woman is God-designed, purpose-intended, significant, and lavishly loved by the King of the universe. No matter your age, your status, your style, or whether you think you have it all together or not, you are welcome at Flourish!” The founding scripture for this conference is Phillipians 1:5, “God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish…”
We see so many that appear depleted of all hope and encouragement. Our goal is to pour into them their great value and provide them with resources and relationships that will long surpass the two days of the conference.”
Holder and Harry invite those interested to follow them on social media to stay informed of additional announcements, on Facebook at Flourish Women’s Conference 17 or on Instagram @flourishwomen17. “You are invited to come rest, worship, learn, and be… as we celebrate the power and greatness of Jesus.”
