with Jennifer Rothschild
Warm Your Heart, Awaken Your Spirit
Our goal is to both enrich and honor the emotional and spiritual aspects of a woman’s life through encouragement, edification and Biblical teaching. We pray that women who attend the event will open their hearts to God’s message so they can be empowered to tenaciously live out their faith in God.
We will spend an evening and half of one day having an incredibly fun and meaningful time connecting women to the Lord Jesus Christ, encouraging them to build eternal relationships with Jesus and each other. This Kingdom-Minded event will unify the Body of Christ and prayerfully stir women to invite other women in their city.

In her newest book, Fresh Grounded Faith (Harvest House), Jennifer begins with a personal story or illustration - always insightful and always scriptually based. women will find space for listing praises and thanksgiving as well as ideas for using the book with a prayer partner or trusted friend.

Who is the comedienne?
Anita Renfroe has been described as a ‘triple shot of espresso in a decaf world,’ but there isn’t a latte cup big enough to hold the party that Anita Renfroe brings. Going from "stay-at-home-mom" to "You Tube comedic Phe-mom-enon" with her William Tell version of everything a Mom says, brought over one million viewers to You Tube to view MOMSENSE. Anita, who some have described as "this generation's Erma Bombeck" is a featured comedienne on ABC's Good Morning America. Anita has been a regular guest on the Women of Faith Tour and is the author of several books including If You Can’t Lose It, Decorate It and The Purse-Driven Life. Here is the YouTube video featured on Good Morning America and viewed by more than 3 million people.
Who is the musical guest?
Michael O'Brien spent years as the lead singer for Newsong and recently has been a part of worship at EWomen Conferences. Those who are fortunate enough to catch Michael in concert have the opportunity to participate firsthand in his unique ability to create what can only be described as serious fun. His concerts range from an upbeat message of praise, to sharing of his heart about his own failures in the past. But Michael’s primary responsibility is to share the gospel.
With genuine warm-heartedness and extraordinary talent, Michael has produced four CD’s and has three number one hits: Nothing’s Going To Turn Me Around, If I Ever Forget, and What Held You On The Cross. Michael O'Brien is an ordinary man,--an artist who bears a refreshing mix of passion and compassion in his approach to music, and in his relationships with others. He's a man you can believe when he says, "I'm not perfect. Jesus is the example. But every day, I want to be more and more a man of conviction."

Since the events are region-wide, facilities need to hold at least 1400 women and be able to handle all the other aspects of the event. Fresh Grounded Faith Events select sites based on the churches that meet the requirements and have a heart to do region-wide, Kingdom-Minded events.
Can my church be involved?
Absolutely! It is our prayer and desire to make sure that as many churches as possible become involved in this event. Your church can gather a group together and attend; many women's ministries come as a group and enjoy two days together. Your church can help publicize the event by going to www.FreshGroundedFaith.com and print off material that they can share at their churches. There are also PowerPoint slides available that you can use during your church services. Contact Fresh Grounded Faith at 1-800-859-7992 if your interested in these.
When you purchase 12 or more tickets at once, you will get one free ticket for every 12 you purchase (up to 10 free tickets per group).

We encourage you to call the Women's Ministry Department at The Chapel at CrossPoint at 716-631-2636 if you have any questions.
What denomination is this?
This event is not focused on any denomination and we welcome women from all denominations. This is a Kingdom-Minded interdenominational regional event, committed to helping women of all backgrounds, ages, nationalities and groups.
What will I need to bring?
You will want to bring a Bible and a pen or pencil. Also due to the temperature both inside and outside often times the worship center is hard to regulate to make everyone comfortable so you will want to carry a light jacket or sweater with you. The speakers will have merchandise tables with their materials available for you to purchase.
