Women’s Emphasis set during State Evangelism Conference
A former Miss America, a local TV personality, an author and an apologetics instructor will be featured during the Women’s Emphasis of the State Evangelism Conference, Jan. 27 at Moore, First, 301 N.E. 27th.
With the theme “Reconciled,” the women will meet in a general session from 9-11:30 a.m., while the evangelism conference participants are attending seminars, and the women will hold seminars during the afternoon from 1:30-2:30 and 3-4.
Keynote speaker will be author and worship leader Kelly Minter, who wrote the Bible study No Other Gods: Confronting Our Modern Day Idols.
Mary Jo Sharp, the first woman to be certified by the North American Mission Board as a certified apologetics instructor, will lead women to understand the defense of the Gospel during the morning general session.
Special music will be led by Lauren Nelson, Miss America 2007. Robin Marsh, Oklahoma City television personality, will be the emcee for the general session.
The afternoon seminars will be led by Minter, who will discuss the topic of her Bible study, and Sharp, talking about “Confronting Oprah’s False Gods.”
There will be a 30-minute dessert time between the afternoon seminars.
“In the past, we’ve offered several afternoon seminars to equip women for evangelism,” said Kelly King, women’s missions and ministries specialist for the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma. “This year, we knew we had two knock-out speakers and didn’t want anyone to miss what they had to say. So instead of several seminars, we are offering two power-packed hours of evangelism training. We’ll have refreshments during a 30-minute break between seminars which will give women a chance to fellowship and get to know the speakers.”
The seminars will be conducted in the high school and middle school rooms.
There is no charge to attend the Women’s Emphasis, and women are encouraged to bring others of all ages from their churches, said King.
