Planting Roots Strength2Thrive Conferences are a one-of-a-kind experience where military women come together to worship, connect (with both God and each other), and learn, walking away encouraged and equipped to do what God has called us to in the places we are planted. As a military women’s organization, all speakers and worship leaders are just that – military women. Whether wearing a uniform or wife to a guy in uniform, we have all lived this life and have discovered two things:
1. Christ is a necessity.
2. We are stronger together.
Welcome to Planting Roots!
We would love for you to join us on October 13th at McLean Bible Church in Vienna, VA as we join together again in real life with other military women. You’ll be so glad you did! The speakers for the day will be amazing:
