"This area has experienced such heartache and devastation from the recent tornados, and we want to give this community, especially the women in it, encouragement and refreshment for the days ahead," said Sheila Walsh, author, singer and Women of Faith speaker.
The Women of Faith Oklahoma City conference will take place at the Chesapeake Energy Arena August 2-3 and will feature national speakers, authors and musicians including Christine Caine, Priscilla Shirer, Patsy Clairmont, Craig Groeschel, MercyMe and Kari Jobe.
Women of Faith is offering ticket vouchers for the two-day conference to women in the area affected by the May tornadoes. More than 500 vouchers allowing free access to the conference have already been given away, with the organization open to offering more vouchers in order to meet the needs of individuals. Those interested in claiming a voucher can contact Stefanie Aldrich, OKC event representative, at 409.749.0034.
In addition, Women of Faith is partnering with Lifechurch.tv to hold a special worship service on July 31 at the church's Oklahoma City South Campus (7800 S. Walker Ave.) beginning at 7 p.m. The service is a free event, open to the entire community, and will feature best-selling authors and national speakers Walsh and Lisa Harper, as well as local pastors and musical talent.
"We had planned to start the 2013 tour in Oklahoma City long before the May tornadoes," said Debbie Stuart, church and leadership development director for Women of Faith. "When the disasters occurred, our team traveled to the area to assist in cleanup efforts, but we know there is much more work to be done. Beyond just physical assistance, we want to offer an opportunity for women to be spiritually and emotionally renewed and help them understand that God is in control; this is just one small way we can foster healing."
