2012 Women’s Conference


April 27-28
Covenant Life Church

Gaithersburg, MD 20877

The Lord Jesus taught us to pray to our Father: “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” We are to pray for God to be glorified in every place on earth and for people everywhere to serve him with joy. Join us as Sharon James shares on the lives of three women in history who demonstrated a passionate pursuit of God’s glory and kingdom. Let’s allow their lives to inspire us as we seek to know him more intimately, serve him more whole-heartedly and discover our part in seeing his will accomplished more fully in our present day.

A Passion for Revival: Lessons from the Life of Sarah Edwards

In 1742 during a revival at Northampton, Sarah Edwards, the wife of the great preacher Jonathan Edwards, experienced the love and grace of God in an extraordinary and profound way. She wrote, “I was entirely swallowed up in God, as my only portion, and his honour and glory was the object of my supreme desire and delight.” Her experience of the reality of the love of God released her from fearing the opinions of others, liberated her from judging others, empowered her with a genuine love toward everyone she knew (including those who opposed her husband’s ministry) and equipped her to face the most appalling suffering without giving way to bitterness or fear. Sarah’s life and testimony should encourage us to face trials with serenity. It should also inspire us to pray with greater fervor for God to work in revival once more.

A Passion for Mission: Lessons from the Life of Ann Judson

Adoniram Judson and his wife Ann were among the first group of American missionaries to go overseas. Ann served with her husband in Burma from 1813 until her death in 1826 at the early age of 37. We will look at Ann’s life and testimony, and learn from her consecration to Christ, her confidence in the sovereignty of God, her determination to be faithful to Scripture whatever the cost, her submission to the will of God in times of suffering and her willingness to persevere in the work of the Gospel through times of seemingly little success. She always placed her own comfort and happiness in second place to the work of the Kingdom. Her example encourages us to greater zeal in praying for and supporting mission work today.

A Passion for Holiness: Lessons from the Life of Frances Ridley Havergal

Frances Ridley Havergal was born in 1836 in a tiny hamlet in the depths of the Worcestershire countryside in England. She was to become one of the best-known Christian writers of the nineteenth century. Her hymn, “Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee,” sums up the passion of her life. She chose to serve as a single woman, and throughout her short life (she died at the age of 42), she was engaged in a range of extraordinarily productive ministries. Looking at her life will challenge us to ask the questions: Are all my words consecrated to the Lord Jesus? Do I spend time with Him each day? Do I seek to obey God’s solemn command: “Be holy, as I am holy”?
