A battle worth fighting: 

winning the battle of the mind

click here to Register for fall conference

Never before have we been so overwhelmed with deception in our culture today. From everyday anxieties to end-times anticipation, we are being mentally drained and emotionally taxed. This is the battle of the mind that seems to be what we fight the most! Learning to constantly keep our minds fixed on Jesus Christ by knowing, trusting, and believing the TRUTH of God's Word is paramount! Jen and Linda Barrick know first-hand what it's like to cling to God's Word and His promises after their whole world crumbled around them. Their path to healing not only delivered them through some of the most difficult years of their lives, but also equipped them to spread a life-giving message of HOPE around the world! Their story and message will encourage you in profound ways and keep you persevering to win the battle of the mind...a battle worth fighting!

And why are we including 6th through 12th grade girls in this event...

We can no longer hope that our younger generations of girls somehow turn out fine unless we actively & intentionally disciple them! Ladies, this is a call to action. If you think you struggle with fighting the battle of the mind, imagine what these young girls face today? Moms, grandmas, aunts, sisters...please make discipling those you love a priority! They need spiritual mothers of all ages all around them! When you invest in the younger girls in your life, you are making an eternal investment. Jennifer Barrick has written a wonderful devotional for these young ladies, and she is such an amazing role model for them! Each girl attending will receive one!

"And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered

a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast."
