Conference Description

Women are everywhere in the gospels. The sisters Mary and Martha. Jesus’ own mother. Mary Magdalene. A woman at a well in Samaria. A sinful woman who wiped Jesus’ feet with her tears and in return heard the words, “Your sins are forgiven.” Each tells us a story. Each also imparts important lessons about Jesus and the nature of trust in His person and His atoning work.

Grace Bible Fellowship Church in Quakertown, which has hosted the Quakertown Conference on Reformed Theology since its inception in 2008, is offering a new two-day conference for women entitled, “Women at the Feet of Jesus.” Through five plenary sessions and a choice of workshops, the story of women who interacted with Jesus will be the subject material…and a rich subject it is!

We are greatly honored to have Aimee Byrd, Megan Hill, Jane Roach, and Julie Lowe as the speakers for this first Quakertown Women's Conference. The conference is scheduled for May 18-19, 2018 in Quakertown, PA, less than an hour north of Philadelphia and 20 minutes south of Allentown. Women of all ages are invited to a time of teaching, worship, and edification.

Please consider joining us. We know you will be blessed as, together, we sit under the teaching of God’s inerrant, authoritative, and life-giving Word.
