Conference Description

“If any of you lacks wisdom,” the apostle James writes, “let him ask of God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to him.” 

We all need wisdom, don’t we? And we especially need the wisdom that God provides through His life-giving Word. The book of Proverbs is a repository of godly wisdom that assists Christian believers in every area of life: in the workplace, at home, at church, in families, etc. God provides wisdom through the Scriptures, and Proverbs is a gold mine!

Please join us at the third Quakertown Women’s Conference on May 17-18, 2024. The theme of the two-day conference is A Woman’s Wisdom: How the Book of Proverbs Speaks to Everything. We are incredibly honored to have Lydia Brownback, Sarah Ivill, and Colleen McFadden as our speakers. Six sessions taught by three dynamic speakers will shine the light of God’s inerrant, inspired, infallible Word on several aspects of wisdom with women in mind. 

The conference will be held at Grace Bible Fellowship Church in Quakertown, PA, just an hour north of Philadelphia and 30 minutes south of Allentown. Women of all ages are invited to a time of teaching, worship, and edification. We know you will be blessed as we sit under the teaching of God’s inerrant, authoritative, and life-giving Word.

Register with a group of five or more to receive a discounted rate.
