One of the special things about this conference is hearing women who share unapologetically their personal pain and despair, but with each story, there is a common thread of faith that pulled them through.
Napierville, Ill. (PRWEB) March 03, 2016
The 2016 Tenacious Faith Women's Conference – Chicago is set for April 29 and 30, 2016, at Calvary Church of Naperville, with multi-talented entrepreneur, author, musician and reality television celebrity Missy Robertson as the keynote speaker for the weekend of hope, inspiration, and spiritual refreshment.
Tenacious Faith Chicago, which aims to ignite a powerful faith in women, is the perfect venue for Robertson and daughter Mia to share their unshakeable faith in God after going through a difficult journey together.
Robertson knows exactly what having a "tenacious faith" means after Mia underwent multiple surgeries from infancy to her childhood years to treat a cleft lip and palate.
Robertson stars in the highest rated reality show in cable history, "Duck Dynasty,” and is wife of Duck Commander COO Jase Robertson. A mother of three, she is also an entrepreneur with her own clothing and jewelry lines, an author, a musician and music teacher, and a passionate volunteer and missionary worker.
Also headlining the event is Chrissy Cymbala Toledo, daughter of Brooklyn Tabernacle pastor Jim Cymbala and author of “Girl in the Song.” Although she grew up surrounded by love and faith, Toledo faced insecurities that later led to very poor life choices. As an unwed mother trapped in an unhealthy relationship, it was the prayers of the church that brought her back to God. Toledo, who now serves as a worship leader of Chicago Tabernacle with her husband Al, hopes to inspire women to realize that God loves them just as they are.
Friday night will feature a concert by recording artist Nicole C. Mullen in her second Tenacious Faith event. Mullen, a recipient of two Grammy Award nominations and seven GMA Dove Awards, has a ministry that extends beyond her music. She mentors young women through her Baby Girls Club which now includes groups in Belize and Zambia. Mullen, known for her mega hits “Redeemer” and “Call on Jesus,” has an underlying goal of leading people into authentic worship.
Worship artist Bridgette Hammer will be the worship leader for the weekend. Having been singing since age four, she now regularly leads worship at churches in North Texas such as Gateway Church and her home church of Preston Trail Community Church.
The Chicago conference presents an impressive lineup of other featured speakers and performers. Among them are actor and recording artist Aaron Benward; Tammy Daughtry, CEO of Co-Parenting International and Mason Jar Productions; Rebecca Keliher, CEO of Well Planned Gal (formerly Home Educating Association); and Dawn Pulgine, Getting Real Ministries founder and president. The conference will be hosted by Naperville media personality, Ramona Pouncy.
Among the topics that will be discussed at the event are emotional health, authentic relationships and friendships, the benefits of following God's will, and more. Tenacious Faith speakers will share authentically from their personal lives. “One of the special things about this conference is hearing women who share unapologetically their personal pain and despair,” says Tenacious Faith founder Tammy Daughtry, “but with each story, there is a common thread of faith that pulled them through. Such powerful stories of amazing, tenacious faith!”
The conference is organized by Mason Jar Productions and sponsored by Dear Magazine, Feed the Children, Family Magazine, Getting Real Ministries, Well Planned Gal, NIV Live Audio Bible, One Heart Two Homes, “War Room,” WHOA Women, Livin’ Lively with Laine, and Co-Parenting International.
Ticket prices are: $79 general registration and $179 platinum registration. Platinum level guests will have front section seating and an exclusive meet and greet with speakers and musicians. A gourmet box lunch is available for $12 on Saturday. Group discounts are available online. Other activities during the conference include concerts, worship, shopping and door prizes.
