Women's Leadership Conference

Conference blurb details will go here, something punchy to cut right to the "why" of this conference!


Women's Leadership Conference is a one-day conference that will explore how the church can effectively communicate the unchanging Word in a relentlessly changing world.

We’ll look at current examples of where the church is succeeding—as well as where it has failed—in its responses to cultural shifts, and provide insight for moving forward. During this highly interactive experience, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from leading evangelical ethicist Russell Moore, whom The Wall Street Journal describes as "vigorous, cheerful, and fiercely articulate.” President of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission for the Southern Baptist Convention, Moore is the author of Onward: Engaging the Culture Without Losing the Gospel. This event won’t be just a series of talks, but a dynamic gathering of leaders to participate in a frank and open forum on how the gospel compels us to engage our culture for the sake of Christ.


Mary Jo Sharp
Keynote Speaker

Mary Jo Sharp is a former atheist from the Pacific Northwest who thought religion was for the weak-minded. She now holds a Masters in Christian Apologetics from Biola University and is the first woman to become a Certified Apologetics Instructor through the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Mary Jo is an Assistant Professor at Houston Baptist University, on faculty with Summit Ministries, an author with Kregel Publications and B&H Publications, author of the top-selling Bible study, "Why Do You Believe That?" and has recently produced a new DVD Bible Study with LifeWay Resources.

A clear communicator with a heart for people, she finds great joy in sharing the deep truths of her Lord and Savior. She administrates the website, Confident Christianity, and has engaged in two formal, public debates with Muslims.
