Finding a place of acceptance, support and encouragement is a precious treasure. Being brought into a group of like-minded, faith-based and grace-grounded women is a true gift from God. He has created such a community through the Christian Communicators (cc) conferences.
Vonda and I have seen strangers from across the country come together to bond into an awe-inspiring support sister-hood in less than five days. The ladies go in their different directions to return to the path that is set for them at the end of the conference, but they know that they are no longer alone on the trail. They leave with lasting connections that lift them up when they want to give up. They know where to ask for assistance in preparing a new speech or cheers for helping them cross the finish line on time when writing a book or a Bible study. However, both Vonda and I have been lifted up ourselves by this gift of community. We have lost loved one over the year and it has been the prayers from the CC community that has strengthened us.
Therefore, what are the links in this treasured gift of fellowship that makes this community?
- Common relationship with Christ Jesus
- Shared interest in serving through speaking and writing
- Servant leaders answering the call to bring honor and glory to God
