Special Pre-Triennial Mini Conference

Missional Moms
featuring Helen Lee, author of The Missional Mom: Living with Purpose at Home and in the World.

Thursday, July 28, 2:00-5:30pm

Does our call to serve Jesus Christ vanish when we become moms? How can we faithfully love and parent our kids while serving God’s purposes in the world?

Missional Moms, a new ministry from Women Ministries of the Covenant, seeks to encourage moms by removing the roadblocks to connection and ministry for them. This special pre-Triennial Missional Moms mini-conference will offer encouragement and inspiration for moms and post-active moms who want to engage the next generation. Includes keynote speaker and author, Helen Lee, stories of everyday moms engaged in missional ministry, and time for connection and reflection together.
$25 per person

Raise the Flag

Triennial is a time and place to connect with women from other nations, cultures, and traditions. Through Raise the Flag, we receive funds to bring to Triennial women from the countries where the Covenant serves in global mission. When we hear from voices different from our own, we all grow and learn.

Spiritual Direction throughout Triennial

Spiritual direction is a ministry of listening, discernment, and prayer in a confidential setting of encouragement and compassion. Through this ministry, a spiritual companion listens and helps you discern the presence and work of God’s spirit in your life. The goal of spiritual direction is that you grow closer to God and become more the person God created you to be.

Spiritual direction will take place only during free times in the Triennial schedule, and you will be notified of your time slot when you check in at the event.
