LIFT’S MISSION:  To Equip and Encourage Leaders in Women’s Ministry

LIFT’s Theme for 2019:

Leading in Wisdom and Truth  “For the Lord gives wisdom from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding” Proverbs 2:6

As we seek to be leaders in Christ’s image, and we have explored  some of the steps we can take to grow up into the footprints Jesus left behind?  In 2018 we took a hard look at some areas that stretched us towards becoming the leaders God is crafting us to to be.  In 2019 we will explore the fruit of the knowledge that God has fermented in us and step out in His wisdom to bring ourselves and others to a deeper understanding of Him.   2019 is set to be and exciting and encouraging  year.  Journey with us through this exciting season. Schedule these events into your calendar and give yourself the gift of a day with LIFT.


Our next event is November 1st from 9am – 3pm

Journeying Together Through Authentic Mentorship

Location: The Church at Arrowhead Main Sanctuary Building A  

7902 W Union Hills Dr. Glendale AZ 85308

Dear Leaders,

I don’t know about you, but I feel like September’s event was just last week.  I hope you enjoyed yourself as much as I did.  I can’t believe it’s already time to turn our hearts towards November’s conference, “Journeying Together Through Authentic Mentorship”.  I am very excited about this topic. Mentoring has been such a huge part of my walk with the Lord. I am grateful to have been part of a church that places a high priority on mentoring our youth.  I am sure I got more out of being a mentor than anyone I was mentoring.  When it is done right, both the mentor and the mentee grow in their spiritual being.  Though many times I felt under qualified, God was always there, standing in the gap, waiting to teach us both something.  Sustainable mentorship is vital to every growing congregation.


As leaders, we may desire our ministry to have a vibrant mentorship culture, but at times it may seem difficult to attain. The questions are: “Which program is the best fit for our ministry?” Or “How do we sustain longevity for a mentoring program in our church?” LIFT’s keynote speaker, Steven Sanchez from Palm Croft church, will encourage and help equip us with a refreshing and renewed focus for mentorship. We will also hear from a panel of leaders about their own experiences and programs that foster mentorship in their church.


In addition to all we will be learning, I will be commissioning the new LIFT director, Vicki Voyce, and she will share her vision for LIFT 2020. There will also be time to renew your membership for the upcoming 2020 season!  As usual, our November conference is a BRING A FRIEND FOR FREE event (one free guest per active member. please make sure to register both you and your guest).  I am hoping that you will seek out a friend or colleague to share LIFT with, and invite them to be part of this exciting conference! Don’t miss out! REGISTER NOW!  We look forward to spending the day with you!

In love and stewardship,

Kelly Bettendorf

Executive Director of LIFT
