Selah: A Seminar for Women

September 30

“Steps of Courage: Following Jesus into the World” is the theme for Selah 2006. The third annual women’s conference hosted by George Fox will encourage women to go deeper with God, align their passions with his plan for their lives, then step out boldly to participate in the work he’s called them to do.

This year’s one-day conference features Lori Salierno, an enthusiastic national speaker and CEO of Celebrate Life International. Georgene Rice will emcee, and worship will be led by Olivia Pothoff. Lunch is included in the $40 registration fee. Registrations must be received by Sept. 27. Women who register prior to August 31 will receive a $5 discount.
