Rise Up


I am so excited to announce to you that we are planning a Spring Women’s Conference for April 13-14, 2018 at The Healing Place (THP) in Trussville. The pastor and staff have graciously opened their doors for this conference. It is time to Rise Up as women of God. My desire is to have an overwhelming response of women and daughters from every church, family and community to join us for this special life-changing weekend. This is a moment to start fresh, make new memories, create new things, dream bigger, see farther, and go where you have never been before.

I challenge you to Rise Up from where you are and whatever it is. This is a weekend to encourage you to be equipped… and realize that He is a God who is “able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above and infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts or dreams.” Come with an open heart and mind to be challenged and changed by God’s intervention through the dynamic ministry of our speaker, Michelle Davenport. Be blessed and get ready to experience an out-of-this-world anointing and glory! Mark your calendars today and begin making plans to be there.  More information is to come.

The current project for the 2016-2018 season is the city of Cota, Columbia located on the outskirts of Bogota.  A war of over 50 years has left a legacy of abuse, violence, orphaned children and high risk individuals. Women and children are trafficked for commercial sexual exploitation, some of them as old as 9 years.   As victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment, many found themselves without a place to go. Left without protection, girls are sexually abused and molested. They experience the unimaginable horror of human trafficking and exploitation of children in South America.

Provision de Amor is a safe house as an answer for endangered girls, orphaned through the atrocities of warl. It provides a wonderful, loving environment located in a beautiful setting on a hillside in Cota. Girls who have successfully completed the program have moved on to higher education and vocational opportunities. In spite of their prior conditions, some of the residents have placed in the top ten percentile within the country. Thereby, they receive scholarships to prestigious schools in Colombia. Although out of harm’s way, they are still in need. The funds raised will also equip them to move beyond their hurts and educate them, teach them life skills, and tell them about Jesus. In turn these children will become warriors for Christ and ambassadors for our loving God.

Our Purpose is to Empower Women…

  • to know Christ
  • to know who they are in Christ
  • to grow as leaders and mentors who disciple others
  • to act by giving their talents, money and time
  • to be the salt of the earth, the light of the world
  • to realize they are valued in God’s kingdom
  • to form small groups, uniting and sharing with women of like passions and interests
  • to strengthen their families and
  • to be God’s hands in the world.


Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20 NIV)

But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. (2 Corinthians 2:14-15 NIV)
