This is our foundational track that we believe everyone can benefit from, whether you are learning these tools for the first time or thinking through how you can teach them to others. This track covers Bible study methods through a series of sessions, including an entry-level story of Scripture, genre work, introduction to the interpretation process, and hands-on practice in groups. If you’ve never thought about tools for Bible interpretation, we hope you consider attending this track, as these tools are assumed in the other tracks offered.
Workshop 1: The Story of Scripture – Taylor Turkington
Workshop 2: Bible Study Methods – Adrienne Lawrence
Workshop 3: Genres of the Bible – Kathleen Nielson
Workshop 4: Practicing Interpretation – Adrienne Lawrence
Leadership in our culture is often about your wielding power and fighting for your vision. Leadership before Jesus is about serving and empowering others. In this track, workshop discussions will focus on how Scripture speaks into serving others in the places we have been called to lead and influence. Topics will range from an overall look of what Scripture says about leadership, to looking at leadership principles in specific passages, and discussing the practicalities of faithfulness in leading.

Workshop 2: The Hope of Servant Leadership – Taylor Turkington

Workshop 4: Embracing Your Authority and Responsibility in the Church – Beverly Chao Berrus
This track is intended for women hoping to be further equipped in practical ways to minister in the local church, our neighborhoods, our families, and our spheres of influence.
