BELOVED Conference

Garden Roots

ARE YOU ROOTED?

A weekend not only to be encouraged, because let's be real, there are so many conferences for that, but also a weekend to truly develop an intimacy with Jesus unlike before. A weekend to come to know who He is, His gospel, His truth, His purpose. Continue reading below to find out more.

LET THE GOOD THINGS GROW
WHAT TO EXPECT
WHAT TO EXPECT

BELOVED is a day dedicated to the gospel. It is a day dedicated to intentional worship, biblically sound messages, prayer, and community.

At BELOVED, we will laugh together, dance together, cry together, eat together, but most importantly, we will leave with applicable steps to continue growing in our Christian walk as women.

With the purchase of your ticket, not only will you get access to the best girls day ever, you will also have access to FREE dinner and FREE childcare.

Have you ever felt like if you just got to the root of all your problems, things would be even keeled? Things would level out? Well, that is the entire point of this conference, to get to the root of our faith and understand how to remain deeply rooted in Him.

John 15:5-7 says I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up and thrown into the fire and burned.”  

We have assembled a group of nationally known speakers and local/in-house leading ladies to speak into the hearts of each of you. They have all prayerfully considered and accepted the invitation to bring the heat.

CHRISTA COTTOM
CHRISTA COTTOM

Christa is an Iowa farm girl who grew up in a religious tradition that focused on ritual and knowledge rather than a relationship with Jesus. But during a healing service 12 years ago, she encountered Jesus, gave her life to him, and has been on fire ever since to dig deep into Scripture, and tell others about the freedom found in Christ. She has worked in both worship and women’s ministry, and loves to encourage others in their faith. She and her husband, Steve have been married for 19 yrs and have two beautiful daughters, Maggie and Lucy.

PODCAST DUO
PODCAST DUO

Renee Wihlborg serves as our Bridge Groups Director here at TBC. She is mom to three amazing kiddos and wife to Nick. Her heart to see the church flourish in community is unmatched.

Andrea Bolton, wife to our Executive Pastor Josh and mom to three rambunctious gifts, has served in ministry for well over a decade. She is an introvert that is The Bridge’s own female theologian. While Renee is an extrovert that forced Andrea to be friends because she will talk Jesus with anyone, anywhere. The two became friends because they love Jesus and carbs, except Andrea quit eating carbs and Renee did not. So that’s fun! They still have Jesus in common and that makes for the best type of friendship.

BRIDGE Girl PANEL
BRIDGE Girl PANEL

We have assembled an amazing group of women for our Panel. Women of all walks of life and all ages. These ladies will inspire you, encourage you, but most importantly these ladies will bring biblical truth. Their hearts are to pour into women not just of The Bridge Church, but all across the valley. We hope you will give a warm welcome to Tiffani Reid, Jen Mesler, Sara Cordova, and Hannah Rivera. It will be an honor to have their wisdom at BELOVED.
