STRONGER is the conference for women in leadership in ministry and the marketplace. This is a place where every female leader can come and attend this two day, workshop intensive conference. There are three general sessions and approximately 20 different workshops annually designed to empower current leaders and build up and coming leaders.
There will be a Ministry Wives Pre-Conference Dinner and Session. The cost is $25 each, and tickets must be purchased by March 15, 2018.
We will also have a special night of dinner and comedy for our 1000 Sisters with Juanita Lolita. Juanita’s comedy career began when a coworker signed her up for an open mic night. Within one year she was performing for over 7000 women at a Church conference for Taffy Dollar in Atlanta and since then has performed throughout the southeast. Although she loves performing at churches, Juanita quickly learned that performing clean comedy in the secular clubs was her mission field. God has made it clear that she is to bring His light into that very dark place. She was voted “Best of the Bay”, Tampa’s funniest female and was also featured on the “Herman and Sharron Show” and “Homekeepers” on CTN. Her Latin flair and hillbilly background have quickly become a crowd favorite. Juanita takes pride in the fact that she can make you laugh hysterically without profanity. Her comedy focuses on observations from everyday life that we can all relate to and she closes out each show with her much anticipated list of things she doesn’t understand’. The cost is $20 each, and tickets can be purchased on the registration form.
Acclaimed by Ministries Today as “America’s Number One Youth Pastor,” Jeanne Mayo has thrown her heart and passion into youth ministry for nearly four decades.
In recent years, Jeanne founded Youth Leader’s Coach, a non-profit organization that seeks “to instruct, equip, inspire and encourage the youth pastors and youth leaders of this generation.” Through this venue, she has begun a coaching/mentoring avenue called “The Cadre.” Over 1,000 of the nation’s premiere youth ministries and churches have now experienced this intensive year of personal mentoring from Jeanne. Several years ago, Jeanne also launched “The Alliance” which is over 300 leadership training hubs all over the nation and Canada. Each Alliance is hosted by one of her “Cadre” graduates and is designed to equip the facilitator to create a network of youth pastors in their area.
In response to Jeanne’s achievements in youth and young adult ministry, both Oral Roberts University and West Coast Bible College and Seminary awarded her a Doctorate of Divinity. As another extension of her leadership influence, Jeanne also sponsors her National Youth Leaders’ Conference. This widely acclaimed event has become one of the largest gatherings of its kind, drawing thousands of youth pastors and leaders in 2003, 2005, 2009, 2012 and 2015. These are transformational events for thousands of youth pastors and leaders from around the globe.
In 2013, Jeanne was awarded the Lifetime Influence Award from the National Assemblies of God. In 2015, she was featured once again as the cover story in “Ministries Today” magazine. In that feature article, Jeanne was once again heralded as the nation’s premiere voice in the training and raising up of youth leaders across our nation and in the world at large.
She is a regular columnist for Group Magazine and Ministries Today. She authored the popular leadership book, Thriving Youth Groups, as well as Uncensored: Dating, Friendship and Sex and the second book in the series, Uncensored: Finding God When He Feels Far Away. Her fourth book, JEANNEisms: Short Sentences That Echo Loud Meaning has also met with wide acclaim.
Jeanne’s life mantra comes from missionary Jim Elliot. His words capture the essence of her heart and life’s mission:
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”
