Women — A Meaningful Season: Thriving in the Golden Years & Beyond — A panel of women discuss faithful ministry, service and loving one another after age 50. When children have grown up and gone, what does it look like to find your identity in Christ with a new set of opportunities and limitations?

Men — Loving Our Sisters Well — A panel of GABC women discuss life as Christian women in the local church and the world. Men will learn how to understand, relate to, help, and walk alongside their sisters in the congregation.


Women — Christian Digital Media 101 — A behind-the-scenes look at various types of Christian Digital media like podcasts, blogs, online magazines, social media, and more. This information can bring context to our choices, helping us evaluate the resources we consume and share with others.
