Saturday, April 22, 2023
Second Baptist Church, Warner Robins
Georgia Baptist Women’s Spring Event
Experience community with other Christ-followers as we are inspired to grow closer to Him and to each other through powerful worship and teaching. Embrace the challenge to explore how you are living on mission as a disciple maker and leave with a strong connection to the Georgia Baptist Women family.
Kandi Gallaty is a pastor’s wife, a mother of two precious boys (Rig and Ryder), a speaker, and a writer who is devoted to making disciples by cultivating a passion in women for God’s Word. She and her husband, Robby, coauthored Foundations, and together they lead Replicate Ministries, a ministry that educates, equips, and empowers believers to make disciples who make disciples. Kandi has also written DiscipleHer and her latest Bible study, The Bible in a Year. Kandi and her family live outside of Nashville, Tennessee, and serve at their church, Long Hollow Baptist Church.
Rhon Carter, Worship and Music Catalyst for the Georgia Baptist Mission Board, has been serving the local church in music ministry since he was a young boy. The Lord called him into full time music ministry while pursuing a degree in hospital administration. Rhon followed that call and acquired a bachelor’s degree in vocal performance with a minor in piano from Brewton-Parker College. It was there that he met his wife, Vickki. They are blessed with a son, Barhon. God has allowed Rhon to serve several great Baptist churches with tremendous pastors. He desires to help all Georgia Baptist churches take next steps to fulfill the Great Commission no matter size, style or structure.
Take advantage of the variety of conferences available at the Georgia Baptist Women’s Spring Event led by missionaries and ministry partners in Georgia, the U.S. and around the world.
Women in the Missionary Task
Jonathan and Rebecca
From the frontlines of ministry in South Asia, join IMB workers to hear their story of calling overseas, learn how the God is moving, and how women can be involved in praying for and working among the lost in this region.
Mental Health and the Church
Dr. Natalie Ford, PhD, LPC, CPCS, CAMS-IV
Assistant Professor, Truett-McConnell University
Counselor, Northeast Georgia Counseling Center
Too often people struggling with mental illness do so alone, without the love and support of a caring community. Research shows 65 percent of churchgoing family members of those with mental illness want their church to talk openly about mental illness. Learn practical ways to love and support families impacted by mental illness.
As Jesus Cared for Women: A discussion of discovery about abuse and care from Christ’s model of ministry
Women’s Minister, The Church at Brook Hills, Birmingham, AL
We hear daily about someone being abused or someone revealing their abuse in our churches and communities. We worry about our children’s safety from the prospect of abuse. We ourselves may have walked that road and struggle with its effects on our lives. What do we do and how can we be proactive to protect and care for the abused? What do we need to be aware of and how do we respond well in our relationships and families? Join our discussion on this most important topic as Christian women.
Let Me Tell You About My Jesus
Kentucky WMU President & Dental Hygienist
Let’s face it, lost people are not knocking our church doors down trying to get in. They’re out there where we do life, in our path, every day. The great commission commands us to make disciples, sharing Jesus as we go. Come learn creative ways to do just that.
Loving God by Liking your Bible
Women’s Ministry Director, Crossroads Baptist Church, Newnan
We all are women who long to love God, but oftentimes find ourselves stuck in our Bible reading – finding little enjoyment in something that is such a struggle. We will take a look at how to know and love God through the understanding of His Word when we have the right tools in place.
Piercing the Darkness: Prayer for the Hard Places
Margaret Kelley, State Prayer Coordinator; Kay Cochran, WMU Executive Board; Lauren Sullens, Georgia WMU President
In 2023, Georgia Baptist Women will launch a new prayer partnership for an unreached people group in South Asia. This means there is no known believer in the people group. Together, our prayers can pierce the darkness for a gospel light to shine among the people! Serving alongside IMB workers and Georgia natives, you and the women of your church can directly impact the spread of the gospel through prayer. During our session you will gain an understanding of the people group, experience their culture, and learn how to connect to the prayer network.
Changing Lives One Third Grader at a Time
Georgia Baptist Literacy Missions Team
Read Georgia, an initiative of Mission Georgia, is enabling churches to partner with local schools, serving children in their quest to become good readers through sight word practice. A willing heart and one hour per week can change a child’s life. Join Belinda to learn more about childhood literacy and the free Read Georgia resources.
The Needs of Widows in Your Church
Georgia Baptist Mission Board
Join Theresa and discover the wide age range of widows in your church, how they feel, and what they need. Explore practical ways to let them know they are loved, not forgotten, and needed in the church.
Practical Ways to Grow More in Love with Your Husband
Women’s Ministry Director, North Metro Baptist Church, Lawrenceville
Marriage is a gift God has given to many of us. No matter how long we have been married, there is always room for us to grow in our relationship with one another. Marriage is not hard when we are paying attention to ways we can grow closer together. We will explore practical ways to build a dynamic marriage.
Parenting: A Reflection of God’s Heart/Restoration from Depression
**OFFERED AS A TWO-PART BREAKOUT IN KOREAN
Dr. Yunhee Sym, PhD, LMFT
Our past upbringing, unresolved issues, our own parents’ values, and popular psychology is often reflected in the way we parent. When we hit a wall and feel lost with our children and our own mental health issues, where do we look to find the answers? We will talk about the Best Parent and Healer, our source of wisdom and guidance.
