A women’s conference will soon be held in Mena and organizers hope that the event will make women ‘flourish’ in their daily lives – hence the name, Flourish Women’s Conference.
“Flourish is a two-day event for the ‘next generation female’ to be equipped, encouraged, empowered, and inspired to flourish where they are planted and become all that God created them to be,” said Anna Buckley, one of the many organizers of the event.
Flourish will be held on November 3rd & 4th at The Crossing Church in Mena. Registration is $30 at the door and includes sessions for both days, lunch on Saturday, in-depth small groups Saturday afternoon, and child care if needed.
Autumn Dawson from ROAR Church in Texarkana will be the guest speaker. Dawson pastors alongside her husband at ROAR and, Buckley says, “is a dynamic speaker who loves Jesus fiercely. We believe she will bless and encourage you to walk in God’s will for your life. This event has the potential to change your life, strengthen your walk with the Lord, and give you life-long friendships that you never knew you needed. We love you. We believe in you. We are praying for you,” Buckley added.
Events begin on Friday, November 3, at 7 p.m. and will continue on Saturday beginning at 9 a.m.
Mika Harry, another organizer of the event said, “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.”
