Chosen Conference

May 12-13 2017 

Chosen is more than a conference, it is a gathering and community of everyday women of all generations, loving God, their communities and each other. At the center is the knowledge that we are loved and valued by God, that we are entrusted to make the most of each moment, and that we are stronger together. Why don’t you join us on the journey to walking with head held high, shoulders back, as women Chosen by God. We can’t wait to see you!


register at the door $35 for Two days $20 for one.
