Last month, Keep The Faith magazine and Marcia Dixon PR hosted the first ever Destined to Soar Women’s Ministry Conference at ARC Church in Forest Gate, with support from sponsors Pentecostal Credit Union and London City Mission.
Over 120 attendees experienced worship led by Shermara Fletcher; heard inspiring talks; took part in panel discussions on work, business and relationships; participated in empowering workshops, and even did some keep fit. Fashion designer and Kingdom Choir stylist, Jeanette Young, was the MC
Pastor Alison Johnson, founder of Torchlight Ministries; Tobi Olujinmi of www.thewtalk.com; Cllr Sanchia Alasia, the first African Caribbean woman to be appointed Mayor of the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, and leading comedian and playwright, Angie Le Mar, shared wisdom and insight that sought to empower.
Pastor Mike White, Senior Pastor of The Tab, was the conference’s only male speaker, and he talked about relationships. He received a standing ovation when he finished. He was that good!!!
He was later joined by Pastor Peter Nembhard, businesswoman Claudine Reid, and minister Teresa Beckles for a panel discussion about relationships, chaired by Marcia Dixon.
Jennifer Obaseki of Obaseki Solicitors chaired the panel discussion on work and business, with businesswomen Antonia Burrell, Claudine Reid, Carol Stewart and Sandra Brown-Pinnock.
Bathsheba Smith led a much-loved mini keep fit session; Makeda J Hewitt ran a workshop on vision, and Carol Stewart ran a confidence workshop.
It was a full day. And a good day. The feedback has been amazing. One woman said it’s the best women’s conference she’s attended.
The first ever DTS Women’s conference was a day to remember. 2020, here we come!
