Women involved in all kinds of ministry – whether in a church, parachurch organization, or in the community – often feel a need for a fresh burst of energy. This course aims to fill that need through the study of God’s word and exploration of topics pertinent to ministry leaders.
REVIVE is a half-day women’s conference that aims to transform ministry leaders from feeling like a sun-scorched land to a well-watered garden! This course is built from the plenary and breakout sessions recorded live at the event held in November 2019.
