Join us at one of our upcoming events
The 2021 “Still I Rise,” Women’s Abuse Survivor Conference will be held at The Bayou Church in Lafayette, Louisiana on October 15-16, 2021 (Friday 6pm to 9pm & Saturday 9am to 3pm). At this year’s conference, the attendees will learn about the power of a testimony, and lives will forever be changed.
The theme for the 2021 conference is: “Sit Back And Watch The Comeback,” and we will continue the overall theme of healing wounded hearts and giving abused women a voice. Attendees will be reminded that they are not alone on their journey of healing. There is a community of women who have lived through their own abuse stories, and are ready to walk with them as they heal their memories and move forward in life. Abuse comes in all shapes and sizes, and the good news is Jesus Christ is waiting to heal those broken places like only He can do.
At the conference, attendees will hear powerful testimonies from women who have survived abuse and receive tips on issues survivors struggle with on the “comeback”. They will experience amazing praise and worship. They will share time with other survivors in a safe, Christ-centered environment.
If you are a woman 18 years of age or older and have experienced any form of abuse, this conference is for you. You can never stop a woman who is determined to rise! Dare to rise with us!
Tickets include materials, snacks, and drinks. Also, lunch will be provided on Saturday.
