Throughout the Conference
We will have brunch together on Sunday morning. All other meals can be purchased on your own from local restaurants.
The I AM Conference is a time and place to connect with women from other nations, cultures, and traditions. Through Global Guests, we receive funds to bring women to the conference from countries where the Covenant serves in global mission. When we hear from voices that are different from our own, we all grow and learn.
Products from around the world will be available at Global Marketplace. In keeping with the mission and vision of Women Ministries, the products showcased at the market are handcrafted from countries around the world where the Evangelical Covenant Church is involved, as well as items from other like-minded ministries. You will see products produced by women whose lives are being restored and transformed from oppression and poverty to a place of hope. As you shop, take the time to learn about our partners in work around the world, and know that your purchases make a difference in others’ lives.
Covenant Bookstore will be at the I AM Conference with lots of great titles selected by keynote speakers and presenters.
Spiritual Direction Throughout the I AM Conference
Spiritual direction is a ministry of listening, discernment, and prayer in a confidential setting of encouragement and compassion. Through this ministry a spiritual companion listens and helps you discern the presence and work of God’s Spirit in your life. The goal of spiritual direction is that you grow closer to God and become more fully the person God created you to be.
If you would like to meet with a spiritual director during the conference, or if you are a spiritual director who is willing to provide spiritual direction during the week, please indicate your interest on the appropriate place on the registration page. Spiritual direction will take place only during free times in the schedule, and you will be notified of your time slot at a later date.
Capacity is limited and will be handled on a first come, first serve basis.
All worship sessions will have translation services live, in real time, using translation equipment. Please be aware that every effort will be made to create a positive experience for every woman, but the conference is not a fully bilingual event. Please indicate on registration form if you would like translation during worship.
