What does it mean that this is only for ministry wives right now?

-The Shepherds' Wives Conference is a conference tailored to women who are in ministry alongside their husbands or for women who are in ministry themselves. The heart behind this conference is to minister to those who minister in the church. The wives of pastors, elders, deacons, ministry leaders, worship leaders, youth leaders, missionaries, etc. all fall under the category of a "ministry wife." The conference is also open to women who serve in leadership roles at their church - women's directors, children's directors, creative directors, media directors, etc. 


I'm not a ministry wife, can I please come??

-We love that so many women are wanting to attend this conference! We are asking that if you do not fall into one of the categories above, you not sign up at this time. If space permits, we are planning to open registration to all women. We understand this can make it difficult to plan and we appreciate your practical step of serving ministry wives.


What is the address of the church?

What airport should I fly into?

Can I get a refund or transfer my ticket?
