Welcome to Eden, Girlfriend! I believe in the potential that resides within you! You are capable of so much, and by growing and working together we can change the world. With this in mind, this weekend is about Inspiring, Energizing, and Empowering YOU to live your best life NOW! Girlfriends Conference is about gathering women from different walks of life together. We are not meant to live life alone. Community connects our strengths, resources, and callings by combining them into a sisterhood of encouragement, which elevates each of us to our highest personal potential! As a sisterhood of women from all walks of life, we are creating a new identity for women of faith. This conference is about women inspiring women to live the life God has uniquely created for them. You are divinely purposed to bring strength and leadership to your home, your friendships, your local church, your communities, your connect groups, your jobs, your schools, and beyond. I want this weekend to inspire and energize you to treasure your own value, to equip you to grow your relationship with God, to empower you to make a difference in your world, and to encourage you to GROW in your life! Let’s Grow Together!

Pastor Robyn

“Yours is the garden. Let him tend it, and watch it grow, flourish, leaning in towards the light of his love. Rooted, growing and thriving together.”

INTERACTIVE IDENTITY WALL

This wall is here to showcase that you are never alone. Visit the identity wall to see how much you have in common with your fellow girlfriends.

URBAN GARDEN

The Urban Garden has partnered with Girlfriends Conference 2017 to showcase the beauty in nature and all that God has created and how we can benefit from it.

EDEN YARD

Take a few moments and step into our meditative eden yard. God created the garden to enjoy and experience with all of our senses. Take your shoes off and walk on the grass. Feel the coolness through the soles of your feet. Smell the rich nourishing earth. Close your eyes and take a few moments to contemplate His awe-inspiring ways and His intimate love for you. He is the Gardener and He loves His garden!

HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW?

This interactive community project is designed to reveal the wide range of diversity & life experiences and the many similarities & point of connections among our community of women. Take some time to contemplate and answer the questions posed by planting your seeds. Then notice how the display grows and changes throughout the duration of the weekend.
