Women of Faith
When most folks hear of the Women of Faith Ministries, they usually think of the conventions. While the conventions are an unforgettable experience, WOF is actually a great way for women to stay connected to the organization and each other throughout the entire year. WOF offers encouragement to members before, during and after the conference through such benefits as online Bible studies, resources, publications, an online forum, a book club and much more. Even though WOF is structured primarily for women, I must confess that I enjoy listening to the local Dallas convention on the radio each year. A few years ago, I heard Patsy Clairmont speak and I've been hooked ever since.
We'd like to say thanks to our friend Joyce, a real woman of faith, for providing most of the following information about this great organization. To find out more, visit the Women of Faith website. Uploaded Nov 2008.

Women of Faith Conventions
Its two days, 10½ hours. It’s refreshment, reality without reproach, and relationships. So what does that mean?
Refreshment – Imagine getting together with your closest girlfriends for a weekend. Think of the laughter you’d share, the tears you’d shed, the FUN you’d have. Now multiply that by 10,000 or so. You’re starting to get the idea.
Reality without Reproach – We’re not perfect. We don’t expect you to be perfect either. Our speakers are real women who share stories from their real lives. We’re here to encourage women, not to condemn anyone. Even those who have never set foot in a church feel comfortable at our conferences. You can check your mask at the door. You’re welcome just as you are.
Relationships – Connecting with God and with each other. At Women of Faith, we believe that God loves you, no matter what your situation in life may be. We also believe that He wants a personal relationship with you. Through our conferences, more than 250,000 women have indicated decisions to start or renew that relationship. Relationships with each other are important, too. At a Women of Faith conference you’ll have the chance to connect with other women – even if you go there alone![p>
Over the course of the conference, you’ll have the opportunity to:
- Renew your spirit with messages of hope and humor from the Women of Faith speaker team
- Recharge your spiritual batteries with drama that tickles your funny bone and touches your heart (at the same time!)
- Rejoice with music from top Christian music artists
- Reconnect with God and each other as the WOF worship team leads an arena full of women in praise to God
- Revitalize your life with resources that will help keep the conference experience alive all year
- Relax in the comforting knowledge that God loves you – right where you are
