REVIVE: Renewal of the Heart

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our that you may not grow weary and lose heart.  (Heb 12:2a, 3b)

God's passion for "women involved in ministry" is to inspire us with a "Renewal of Heart" as we fix our eyes upon Jesus. Come - be REVIVED and RENEWED through...

  • Spirit-filled worship
  • Christ-centered Bible teaching from Mary Ann Noack, a gifted, well-loved Bible teacher
  • Encouraging small group interaction
  • And REVIVE's newest program element - a choice of six exciting labs designed to empower YOU to minister to others with renewed zeal and wisdom.

Come join us for this TOP PRIORITY MORNING or EVENING! Bring your friends and coworkers, particularly those who share your ministry passion.
