We’re excited to bring back the Awaken Women’s Conference this September.

It’s time to stop and breathe in the breath of life from the Creator! Featuring speaker Pastor Hannah Bechtel from River Valley Church and worship with Emmanuel Live, the sessions and workshops at Awaken will focus on refreshment, renewal, and transformation by the very breath of God.
