“Break my heart for what breaks yours,¬†Everything I am for Your kingdom’s cause…”

Welcome Ladies!

–Do you long to make a difference in this hurting world? Do you ever feel like your heart is about “break” for the plight of orphans or human trafficking? Do you get frustrated by fears and failures or feel hopeless in fulfilling God’s plans?

You’re not alone . . . and you’re not without hope. Join us on Saturday, May 11th (before Mother’s Day), in Hood River, Oregon. We’re launching a brand-new Daring Daughters ministry, beginning here in the Columbia Gorge, with a vision to inspire women and teen girls for local and global missions.

Come sign up and help spread the news. Share this Eventbrite link with your pastor’s wife or with your church’s women’s ministry (we’re believing for participation from at least 20 churches from across denominational lines and from across the generations). Post on facebook. Invite your mom or your sister, or your teenage daughter and her friends . . . or even your neighbor who needs Jesus.

Together, we’ll enjoy a full day with vibrant worship and prayer, fellowship, powerful teaching, and fun. We trust you will be encouraged and inspired . . . to dare to DREAM, to CRY, and to OBEY.

Sure hope you’ll join us.
