LIFT’S MISSION:  Equipping and Encouraging Leaders in Women’s Ministry

LIFT’s theme for 2016:  Leading With Love

“Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other . . . .”  1 Peter 4:8  

What does it look like to show deep love for each other in ministry?  Each LIFT event of 2016 will be focusing on a different aspect of ministry and how the fervent love we’re called to give impacts our ministries, ourselves, and the women we serve.  Peter calls it “most important of all.”  Has showing love been your first priority in life and ministry?  Schedule these events into your calendar and give yourself the gift of a day with LIFT.

November 11, 2016:  Keeping Your First Love with Debbie Stuart, Director of Ministry Initiatives

Debbie Stuart is on fire … to draw women into the Word of God and equip them to become powerful influencers in their families and communities. “I am convinced that finding, believing, and pursuing God’s plan and purpose for our lives at all cost is worth any sacrifice.”

Honoring decades of excellence in women’s ministries, ProvenWay Ministries honored Debbie as the 2011 recipient of the Shining Star Award, which recognizes Outstanding Women in Leadership. She was also awarded the 2015 Woman of the Word award by Salem Communications and nominated for the Women of Excellence award in 2016.
