The Katie Conference is a gathering of women, who are the wives and widows of clergy (pastors, vicars, and deacons). Join with women who have much in common for a weekend of laughter, worship, prayer, and play. The atmosphere is genial, uplifting, and designed to leave you encouraged, reconnected, and blessed with new insights, new friends, and new energy!
Changed by the Unchangeable God, based on Romans 12:2, will be the theme of this year’s conference. We are all aware of our own need to be changed from sinners to saints. This can only happen through the work of our completely unchangeable God. Join us as we study the stories of Zacchaeus, Samson, and the tax collector and allow God’s Word to change and transform our lives.
