The Description

Discipleship is not a method or a program—it is a lifestyle in response to Jesus’s invitation to “follow me.” What does that look like today? Come explore the disciple’s journey of connecting with God, walking in the footsteps of Jesus, and living empowered by the Spirit as a disciple who makes disciples. Jesus’s invitation is for each of us. Will you accept and declare, "I am a disciple!"

Battling the Imposter Syndrome

Just when you develop the confidence to be a woman of influence, you begin to hear lies that you don’t belong and have nothing to offer. This is the “imposter syndrome.” It’s what happens when you begin to believe those lies and hold back your God-given potential. Join us in a conversation on how God’s truth is stronger than the lies, so you can battle the imposter syndrome.

Listening to God, Yourself, and Others

We all have preferred ways of engaging God and others. Some of us trust our head to lead us. Others depend on their heart to keep them connected spiritually and relationally. Others rely on their gut instincts. Learning to access all these ways of knowing and opening to God and others can lead to integration, connection, and empathy. Come explore how to know and be known in ways that bring healing and the light of Christ.

Adele Calhoun, author, spiritual director, certified Enneagram instructor, and co-pastor of spiritual formation, Highrock Covenant Church, Arlington, MA

Friday, 1:45-3:00

Eating Together

God created us to need food, and he modeled how a simple meal can draw people to himself. Eating together can be personally transformative and missional as we see in the feeding of the 5,000 and Jesus’s example of eating with sinners. This experiential workshop will be a forum to empower women using a theological vision and practical routines to build missional patterns into daily life.

Kim Roberts, small group leader, Highrock Covenant Church, Arlington, MA
Evelyn Fan-Lozano, small group leader, Highrock Covenant Church, Arlington, MA

Saturday, 1:45-3:00

Share in Story: God’s and Mine

We all have a narrative about who we are and who God is. How we tell these stories can cripple us or liberate us. Learn how to frame and articulate your “true you” story. Lean into how the story of your life is meant to be a gift to others. Your story is the witness to who God is and who you are.

Adele Calhoun, author, spiritual director, certified Enneagram instructor, and co-pastor of spiritual formation, Highrock Covenant Church, Arlington, MA
