**REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED*
Ladies! Save the date for our women's retreat, which is happening on April 23 and 24th at our building. All women ages 16+ are welcome to attend. Our theme this year is Endure, which means to remain and abide, to support without breaking or yielding to force or pressure.
If we endure, we will also reign with him.
If we disown him, he will also disown us;
if we are faithless, he remains faithful,
for he cannot disown himself.
2 Timothy 2:12-13
We're excited to welcome Kristen Ainsworth this year as our guest speaker. Keep reading to learn more about her.
Kristen Ainsworth loves to encourage and spur on women "toward love and good deeds," as Paul says in Hebrews 10:24, so she gets excited about every opportunity to teach God's people from God's Word. Kristen is a minister, communicator, and discipler of women, and serves as the Connections Director at The Village Church in Flower Mound. She is passionate about living a life of biblical hospitality and seeing individuals and families connected meaningfully into the family of God and the local church. Prior to serving in vocational ministry, she spent 12 years as a public school educator. Kristen is a 2021 graduate of Southern Seminary with a Master's in Theological Studies, and she lives in Dallas with her husband, Kevin, and 10 year old son, Logan.
