There is something for everyone at the 2015 State Evangelism Conference, including a special session geared towards women on Tue., Jan. 27 from 9 a.m. through lunch.
The morning session will be at Del City, First Southern and will follow a similar pattern as last year, with shorter testimonies and equipping learning opportunities. The morning session is open to anyone and will be in the worship center at the church.
These equipping sessions, known as E-bytes, will be recorded and available for viewing on the women’s website following the event.
“Last year we wanted to extend the life of our speakers by providing a resource that will empower women to share their faith,” explained Kelly King, Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma (BGCO) women’s specialist. “We came up with the name E-bytes with two reasons in mind—we want to focus on evangelism and the electronic means of recording the sessions.”
A luncheon will follow the morning session and feature nationally-known speaker and author Kasey Van Norman. Tickets for the luncheon are $10 and available online. Anyone may hear Van Norman speak after lunch is served. This event will be held in the church gymnasium.
Morning session speakers include Sonya Brunner, Lauren Faram, Donna Avant and Angela Sanders.
“Some of the speakers will share a personal testimony, and others will actually teach different methods of evangelism,” said King.
Van Norman, the luncheon speaker, is an inspiring example of God’s grace and intervention. Her breakout book and Bible study series, Named by God, skyrocketed to best-seller status in 2012. Her new study, Raw Faith, chronicles her battle with incurable cancer. She and her husband, Justin, founded Still Creek Ranch, which helps rescue minors from abuse, neglect and human trafficking.
