Moms in Prayer to host November women’s conference

Rowan Moms in Prayer, a local chapter of an international organization, is sponsoring a trip to a November women’s conference at Lifeway Ridgecrest Conference Center.

The Unshaken Blue Ridge conference will be held Nov. 2-4.

The worldwide ministry devoted to covering every child and school in prayer began in 1984 when a British Columbia mother felt a burden to pray for her children with another mom. The ministry is headquartered in Poway, California, and has prayer groups in more than 140 countries.

Local coordinator Barbara Hendrix said about 370 people have registered from 26 states. Of those, 73 were not previously part of Moms in Prayer International.

The cost of registration is $55 for the conference plus lodging at the conference center, located at 1 Ridgecrest Drive. Rooms begin at $89 per night and range to $238 per night, based on the type of room and number of occupants.

There is an added cost of $58 that includes five meals beginning with Friday dinner and ending with Sunday breakfast.

Registration includes all sessions and materials. Accommodations and meals are booked separately through Ridgecrest Conference Center.

Breakout sessions will be led by motivational speakers including Moms in Prayer International founder Fern Nichols, who is expected to remind conference-goers of the role God has given to them to influence the next generation to love Jesus through play and prayer.

Karen Abercrombie, an award-winning actress, writer and producer, also will speak. Abercrombie was featured in the box-office hit “War Room.”

Contact the Ridgecrest Conference Center to book a room and meal plan online at https://reservations.ridgecrestconferencecenter.org/ or by calling 800-588-7222 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Refer to Unshaken Blue Ridge in the booking.
