LTSP Notes – November 2016

Here I AmHere Am I
Women Responding to God’s Call

On March 24-26, 2017, RevGalBlogPals and LTSP are proud to present a retreat specifically for women considering a call to professional ministry in the church.

Unfortunately, a women’s call to ministry is not always readily affirmed, and so this event aims to provide women of all ages and experience with a space to explore what God might be doing in their life. Talented pastors and leaders representing numerous different denominations will share their stories, insights, and experiences about their journey.

This event is for women of all ages and denominations, but space is limited! Head to LTSP’s Visit page to sign up today!
