2022 Inspire Women's Conference

2022 Inspire Women's Conference

Inspire 2022 is going to be one of the most exciting opportunities for the women of Arkansas. Inspire Women's Conference is designed for women of all ages and stages of life! Returning to a traditional conference after two years away gives us a chance to reimagine Inspire and its future.   You can still expect powerful worship, dynamic speakers, and meaningful times of connection that will bless, challenge, and equip you! There will also be new elements that will be fun and exciting. Grab your friends and register today!

This year our theme is HOPE. All of us know what it is like to need hope. Life can be hard, and it is easy to get discouraged. As we gather at Inspire 2022, we will sing about hope, study about hope, and share stories of hope. As we think about our stories and how they are stories filled with hope, our key verse encourages us to “always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you about the hope you have.” (1 Peter 3:15)
