SynergyChicago

One more week and Synergy is heading to Chicago!

It seems ages since John Armstrong, President of ACT3, first contacted me with the idea of bringing Synergy to the “Windy City.” This is Synergy’s first venture beyond the warmth of sunny Orlando, Florida. We hope it is the first of many similar ventures.

If you’ve ever attended a Synergy conference, you’ll know what I mean when I say, “This isn’t your typical women’s conference.” For those who are new to Synergy, let me explain.

At Synergy, we take women and God’s calling on their lives seriously. We’re asking hard questions—the kinds of questions women are asking all the time—21st Century questions about what it means to live for Christ in this broken world, how he is raising up his daughters to serve him in a Blessed Alliance with our Christian brothers. We’re casting a large gospel vision that invests every woman’s and man’s life with meaning and purpose, no matter where God stations us.

Here’s what one attendee said,

I received more than I ever expected or imagined at Synergy! God stirred up many hopes and longings in me that I had not even realized I had cast aside (or maybe the better word is I had slowly killed off because it hurt too much to dream and I had lost sight of my place in the Kingdom battle).

What makes Synergy especially unique is that men have started attending. They are drawn by the quality and deep content of our conferences. We’re asking questions that impact their lives too. Here’s what one of our brothers had to say:

I’ve been to many conferences, but Synergy rises to the top for its theological and relational vitality. Carolyn is leading a way in a paradigm shift of biblical engagement which is really not new at all, but rooted in the Reformation concept of the priesthood of all believers. Carolyn is putting the “all” back in that ancient doctrine. As a pastor and a seminary professor, I wholeheartedly commend Carolyn’s work and Synergy.

The theme of SynergyChicago is “Finding your place in The Story.” If you’re within reach of Chicago, we hope you’ll join us.

For details and to register, goto: SynergyChicago

    I totally hear what this one woman is saying.. “God stirred up many hopes and longings in me that I had not even realized I had cast aside (or maybe the better word is I had slowly killed off because it hurt too much to dream and I had lost sight of my place in the Kingdom battle).”

    I have encountered so many women who are expressing this same sentiment, the death of their dreams.

    It's great to see that there is a place that is helping to break the cycle and breathe new life into people.

    I actually just blogged about a similar sentiment, just yesterday.

    Wish I could attend a synergy conference but we are moving to CA in March so perhaps another year!

    Esther,

    I think this is more widespread than we realize. My dream is that God will use Synergy to reawaken these dreams in his daughters. I'm glad we are encouraging you!
