A CONFERENCE FOR WOMEN ~ November 9 / 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

DOORS open: 8a / BREAKFAST served: 8:15-8:45 / CONFERENCE begins: 9a

STAND ready ~ 7643 Huron River Dr, Dexter, MI 48130

THEME: We've been taught, encouraged, and even implored to stop fighting. Yet, throughout life, we face things that are worth fighting for. Are we supposed to fight? Should we fight? If so, then how do we fight? God's requirement is we fight right. In 2 Timothy 4:7, Paul writes, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

At STAND ready, you'll be encouraged to grow, challenged to change, and influenced to live as Jesus intends, ready to fight right for the things worth fighting for. God says, "If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all." Therefore, we believe the take-away is vital.


The STAND conference coincides with the STAND Bible Study series. Each conference registration includes one copy of STAND ready, fighting right for the things worth fighting for, the third book in the STAND series, written by Ellen Harbin. Ellen's other books, CRISIS: falling to pieces was not an option for me; STAND unashamed, and STAND strong will be available at special conference pricing.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Ellen Harbin is a gifted Bible teacher and conference speaker, creatively applying the truth of God's Word to all of life's triumphs and tragedies. She's engaging, inspiring, and easy to listen to, all while encouraging you to take a closer look at your relationship with Jesus and live as He intends.

CONFERENCE CONTRIBUTORS: Bonnie Caldwell & Judy DePoy, session II presenters. Taylor Harbin, session host. Melody Brandt & Rebecca Harbin, special presenters. Christine Hodges, worship leader. Melissa Johnson, musician.

MUSIC COORDINATOR: Jenny Johnson plays keyboard and guitar and is a gifted vocalist. At STAND, we intentionally choose songs that blend well with the conference theme, enhancing our worship experience. Jenny desires that all music points to Jesus and ushers us to a heart of worship as our voices are raised in song.

GUEST MUSICIANS: Cynthia Lemen toured professionally, is a recording artist, and currently sings lead in Cool Lemon Jazz, a band founded with her husband, Val. Cynthia is one of the siblings making up The Swartz Sisters with Kathy Burkholder, Patti Meredith, and Donna Rieke. These four sisters began singing alongside each other while doing the dishes. Whether singing contemporary Christian songs or old hymns of the faith, you'll be emboldened by their smooth and beautiful harmonies.

REGISTRATION INCLUDES: continental breakfast with hot and cold options, snacks, drinks, lunch, special give-aways, conference materials, mini concert, plus Ellen's latest book, STAND ready: fighting right for the things worth fighting for.
