SBC Prepares To Host ATCU Annual Women's Ministries Retreat
September 18, 2013 Filed in: Women Ministry
Under the theme “That I May Share Him,” the women of the Atlantic Caribbean Union are excitedly making last minute preparations for what promises to be an unforgettable Women’s Ministries Retreat. Beginning September 20, 2013 at the Sheraton Hotel Cable Beach Nassau Bahamas, women from The Cayman Islands, Turks and Cacaos Islands and the Bahamas will assemble for their annual retreat.
The Guest Speaker is Heather-Dawn Small who currently serves as world leader of Women’s Ministries for Seventh-day Adventists. As she travels the world, she has three passions-to see more women involved in evangelism, to encourage women to be involved in ministry to others, and to share the joy that God has given her in spite of life's many challenges. Of great concern to her are the millions of women across the world who are victims of violence. The End It Now Campaign is one program she zealously promotes to address this concern. The main goal of the campaign is to raise awareness and to educate the church and the community about the problem of violence against women.
The weekend promises to provide a safe place for healing, understanding and growth with much opportunity for prayer and fellowship. Mrs. Denise Johnson, Director for Women’s Ministries for Atlantic Caribbean Union is ecstatic at the overwhelming support of this year’s host field, the South Bahamas Conference Women’s Ministries Department lead by of Donnalee Bowe. The Presence of the Lord is anticipated to change lives and restore hope.
