NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The COVID-19 pandemic may have forced physical gatherings around the globe to cancel for the foreseeable future, but LifeWay Christian Resources is doubling down on their efforts to connect women through the Gospel.
This fall, LifeWay Women will convert three major scheduled events — LifeWay Women Live Simulcast (Aug. 8), Cultivate Online (Sept. 12) and Living Proof Live Simulcast with Beth Moore (Oct. 10) — into virtual events that will likely engage more women than would have been possible through the physical gatherings.
“Women are naturally inclined toward being together, sharing thoughts and ideas, and gaining emotional support and encouragement through gatherings,” said Betsy Langmade, LifeWay’s manager of adult events.
“Much, if not all, of this type of connection has evaporated during these past few months. And women are frustrated, fearful, feel powerless, and unable to find their footing in the chaos.”
LifeWay Women Live will feature key LifeWay women’s authors and Bible teachers: Priscilla Shirer, Jackie Hill Perry, Beth Moore, Angie Smith, Jennifer Roithschild, Kelly Minter, Kristi McLelland and Jen Wilkin.
“More than ever, we miss our face-to-face interactions,” said Texas-based Wilkin, author of multiple books and Bible studies. “These virtual events give us a way to connect during a time when feelings of isolation are at an all-time high. They remind us of the beauty of being part of the body of Christ, and they reconnect us to our shared vision of the Gospel.”
Cultivate Online with Kelly Minter, the first of its kind, will feature Bible teaching from the author and artist, acoustic worship music, individual and corporate prayer times, and a focus on missions.
