The New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church Women of God hosted their second annual Woman to Woman conference on Saturday. Approximately 80 women from Amarillo and the surrounding areas gathered to be motivated and spiritually uplifted by four dynamic Women of God.
The theme for the conference was Release Those Bags. Women were encouraged to release excess baggage they may be carrying in order to move on with their lives and make room for the blessings God has in store for them. The question was asked, Who can find a Virtuous Woman? Four speakers along with the New Covenant Praise Team and Praise Dancers provided a clear path to help women strengthen their relationship with God.
Sister Elizabeth Randle of Johnson Chapel AME Church discussed “Leave the pass behind you” Scripture John 4:1-40 Woman at the Well. Sister Randle encouraged everyone to fill their own personal well with the spirit of God.
Prophetess Sandra Gardner of Rehoboth Christian Worship Center of Plainview Texas discussed “Don’t be a busy body” Scripture Luke 10:38-42 Mary and Martha. Prophetess Gardner encouraged women to look at their daily list of priorities and make sure God is at the top of that list.
Sister Rosie Powell of Greater Mount Olive Baptist Church discussed “Humble yourself and God will exalt you in due time” Scripture Ruth 2:1-13 Naomi and Ruth. Sister Powell encouraged everyone to bloom where you are, be humble and God will exalt you.
Sister Jessie Fincher of Jenkins Chapel Baptist Church discussed “Be a forerunner for God” Scripture Judges 4 and 5 Deborah. Sister Fincher encouraged women to be empowered through the word of God and to focus on Position, Purpose, and Praise.
The Woman to Woman Conference was a vision of New Covenant member Sister Charles Etta Harris. With the help of The New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church Women of God and the support of Bishop James Mims and Co-Pastor Joyce Mims Sister Harris was able to see her vision to fruition.
