Bloom is a two-day women's conference designed to connect, empower and encourage all women. At this conference you can expect incredible worship, inspirational and powerful speakers, and a fun and engaging environment, where we’ll explore just how we were MADE. This weekend promises to be one you won’t forget, so sign up today!
The $40 registration cost includes admission, a t-shirt, giveaways, snacks and a great time.
Please remember that we will not be providing childcare. Also, requested t-shirt sizes are guaranteed only to those who register prior to March 20, but we'll do our best to have plenty of extras.
Tara-Leigh Cobble’s zeal for biblical literacy led her to create and develop an international network of Bible studies called D-Group (Discipleship Group). Every week, over 250 men's and women's D-Groups meet weekly in homes and churches around the world. She also writes and hosts a daily podcast called The Bible Recap, which is designed to help listeners read and understand the Bible in a year. More than 20,000 churches around the world have joined them in their reading plan to know and love God better.
Stephanie Luster is married to her high school sweetheart, Michael Luster. They have a 2-year-old daughter named Aria, who is their blessing from the Lord after several miscarriages. As a former television news reporter, she was called into ministry in the middle of writing a news story one day. The Lord called her to minister his gospel, and she has not looked back since. Family is important to her, and having the Lord as the center of everything she does in life is a must. She is a recent cancer survivor and she thanks the Lord almighty for healing.
Emily received her B. A. in Communications from Baylor University. While at Baylor, Emily participated in various opportunities to serve the marginalized and lead worship. This began her passionate pursuit to "put feet" on the songs she was singing. In 2004, Emily began reaching women in the commercial sex industry and laid the foundation for what would become Jesus Said Love in 2007. Emily’s husband, Brett, came alongside her vision in 2007 and now serves as CEO of JSL. JSL exists to awaken hope and empower change through extending Christ’s love and belonging to those impacted by the commercial sex trade.
Emily loves writing words and music, singing and leading worship alongside her husband Brett. She is drawn to almost any body of water and adores learning new things. Emily and Brett have three incredibly gracious children, Hattie, Lucy and Gus.
Jill is the owner and co-host of the podcast Oh Hey Truth, where she has the privilege of bringing the truth in context and bringing darkness to light. She is a visionary, a truth seeker, speaker and expert in honesty. She is loud, bold and loves people fiercely.
Jill is sick and getting sicker. Her body is failing her, which makes her truly trust the God she speaks of so freely. She is open about past and current sin struggles and wants to see women set free in Christ Jesus. She is wife to Clinton and mom to Cannon (8), Nixon (6) and Austen (4).
She loves friendships, deep convos and reading all the books. She loves to talk about the God that took her out of the pit of darkness her freshman year at A&M and redeemed the messed-up life that she thought was far past redemption. But nothing is impossible for God, and she can’t wait to tell you all about it.
At Bloom, we want to help women find a way to use their passions, giftings, and their own stories to bless others. We want to provide avenues within our local church and even through ministries outside the walls of c|Life. On Saturday, from 10:10-10:55 am we’ll provide a time for women to visit the booths represented to hopefully give the ministries and women an opportunity to connect! If you would like to have your ministry represented at Bloom 2020, please fill out the form linked below:
Booths will need to be set up between 7:30 and 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, and need to be "manned" from 10:10-10:55 a.m. No one is allowed to set up her booth prior to 7:30 a.m.
Each booth will be provided with a 6-foot rectangular table. All decorations and other items (ie. handouts, sign up sheets) will need to be provided by each ministry. Deadline to request a ministry booth space is March 20.
As a church, and Women’s Ministry, we want to help you thrive in life and help support you in any way possible. If you have a business of your own, and would like to have a table at our conference to sell items or just promote your business, please sign up for the conference as a regular attendee, and in the confirmation email there will be a link to request a booth space.
