SHINE is for women of all ages to connect to our great God and to others through worship, prayer, fellowship, and life-changing truths from God. This is the 7th annual event bringing women together from our community, churches and surrounding areas. SHINE is a two-day event, beginning on Friday, April 7th, 7-9pm, and concluding on Saturday, April 8th, 9am-noon. Make plans to be a part of this inspiring time together!
This year's event features the dynamic duo of Sharon Jaynes & Gwen Smith, both from North Carolina:
Sharon Jaynes (sharonjaynes.com) has been encouraging women through ministry for over twenty-five years. From the time she met Christ as a teenager, she fell in love with God’s Word and has had a passion to equip women to live fully and free (John 8:32; John 10:10). Her passion is "to encourage, and empower women to walk in courage and confidence as they grasp their true identity as a child of God and a co-heir with Christ." She has authored over 20 books, and is a frequent guest on radio on television. Sharon is a wife and mother who loves the beach, sweet tea, and is still crazy about her husband after 33 years.
Gwen Smith (gwensmith.net) says of her ministry: "My goal is to encourage you to think big thoughts about God by pointing you to His truth and grace through stories, songs and Scripture. Without hesitation: I am an unashamed, imperfect worshiper of Jesus Christ. His goodness covers my mess and purposes my days to live out the hope of the Gospel. It is my joy and passion to inspire women to live fully in Christ." She has authored several books including her most recent I Want It All, and has 6 produced CDs. Gwen is the wife to husband, Brad, and the mom to three teenagers, worship leader and a "coffee-craving, dark chocolate lover".
