Event description

Description

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 8th annual event bringing women together from our community, churches and surrounding areas. SHINE is a two-day event, beginning on Friday, April 6th, 7-9pm, and concluding on Saturday, April 7th, 9am-noon. Make plans to be a part of this inspiring time together!

This year's event features speaker, author and Bible teacher, Lisa Harper, and songwriter/worship leader, Sherilyn.

Lisa Harper (lisaharper.net). Rarely are the terms hilarious storyteller and theological scholar used in the same sentence, much less used to describe the same person but then again, Lisa Harper is anything but stereotypical! She has been lauded as a gifted communicator, whose writing and speaking overflow with colorful pop culture references that connect the dots between the Bible era and modern life. Her style combines sound scriptural exposition with easy-to-relate to anecdotes and comedic wit.

Best-selling author and pastor Max Lucado calls Lisa one of the “best Bible tour guides around,” and speaker Priscilla Evans Shirer adds, “Her God-given ability to not merely teach the Word but package it in a way that stirs the heart and calls to action is incomparable. When she speaks, ears perk up!”

Her vocational resume includes six years as the director of Focus on the Family’s national women’s ministry where she created the popular Renewing the Heart conferences, attended by almost 200,000 women, followed by six years as the women’s ministry director at a large church in Nashville. Her academic resume includes a Masters of Theological Studies with honors from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis. Now a sought-after Bible teacher and speaker, Lisa was on the Women of Faith national arena tour for eight years and speaks at many other large multi-denominational events as well as at hundreds of churches all over the world.

She’s had eleven books published including A Perfect Mess: Why You Don’t Have To Worry About Being Good Enough For God and her latest, Believing Jesus: Are You Willing To Risk Everything?. She also has three best-selling video-based Bible study curriculums with LifeWay: Malachi: A Love That Never Lets Go; Hebrews: The Nearness of King Jesus; and Mark: The Jesus We’re Aching For (which just released in ‘16).

Yet when asked about her credentials, the most noticeable thing about Lisa Harper is her authenticity. During a recent interview she said, “I’m so grateful for the opportunities God’s given me but don’t forget, He often uses donkeys and rocks!” She went on to describe her greatest accomplishment to date as getting to be Missy’s mama. Because in April 2014, after a difficult two-year journey, Lisa finally got to bring her adopted daughter home from Haiti and she hasn’t stopped grinning since.

Sherilyn (sherilynmusic.com) joins us this year as our worship leader and musical guest. She has been leading worship and recording music for over 20 years. Having had numerous songs published by Vineyard Music and Varietal Records in the last decade, her most popular solo album, "Fearless Now," was produced by Nathan Nockels and named one of the "Top 10 Picks of the Year" by Christianity Today. After walking through some difficult storms in her personal life, Sherilyn spent a few years writing & recording songs about her trials & experiences. She has served as a missionary in Italy & Brazil, and relocated from Atlanta to the Central CA coast in 2014. That same year, she released a collection of her worship songs past & present, called "Found In You." Her first release with Mb Music in April 2016, "Move This Mountain” is full of powerful anthems that have changed the atmosphere in her home church. Sherilyn is the founder of WOVEN for Women, is part of a worship collective called Mountainbrook Music, and currently serves as Worship Pastor for Mountainbrook Church in San Luis Obispo, CA.
