Sadly, when churches say “single adult,” the immediate thought is “not married,” and a host of characteristics and reasons for a single status are given. Yet, single adult women are much more diverse than their marital status, and they aren’t all the same. However, many don’t feel welcome in a church or even that there is a place for them within the body of Christ. This panel discussion will focus on how to reach the growing demographic of “single women” without viewing them as anomalies. Panelists will include a recent college graduate, a working professional who has never been married, a pastor’s wife who works with single adults and a widow. Speakers: Ashley Allen, Molly Lydick, Mary Wallace Wilson, Tabatha Frost
Mary Wallace Wilson - Every church needs women who love to serve, yet one of the most important ways to serve is by disciple-making. The only prerequisites are obedience to Christ, a heart of love and being Spirit-filled. No seminary training is required.
This breakout session will offer practical and hands-on ways to equip women to engage other women in gospel conversations that are natural for casual encounters or lengthy conversations. Whether it is a family member or someone you meet in the store, learn ways to use everyday encounters to share nuggets of the gospel.
