Life can be fraught with difficulties and fearful moments. As women, we probably experience more than our share of the ups and downs of just living, especially as it relates to self, health, family, finances, faith, purpose and calling.

But when those tough seasons come, we take hold of the promises of God. We can be confident that our Lord has not given us over to fear in our circumstances. Instead, He has empowered us in life with everything we need to navigate victoriously through the good, bad and ugly of life.

Whether you’re in a good or difficult season, this conference is for you. With our amazing speakers, musical artist along with powerful praise, worship and prayer, get ready to Ignite the Spirit of Power, Love and Self-Control as you encounter God like never before. Let’s believe in the impossible together at the Desperate for Jesus Women’s Conference!

We have an amazing array of Kingdom women who are passionate for God and committed to helping you Ignite the Spirit of power, love and self-control in all of life’s circumstances.
