Jireh Conference:
Join the ladies of 3C NLF Women’s Ministries at the Michiana Event Center in Shipshewana for the Jireh Conference as we dive into Scripture and grow in our knowledge of who God is. Our purpose is to connect women to God’s Word and one another, bringing laughter, unity, healing, and the hope of Jesus Christ.  Our prayer is that you will leave after this time of worship and study of Scripture, knowing that God sees you, hears you and loves you beyond measure. This faith-based women’s event is the culmination of a dream six years in the making and you won’t want to miss it! We will meet at the church, and attend together.
