Girls of Grace to host teenage conference
Big Thicket Messenger - December/January 2007

Teenage girls are invited to join a national gathering of teens from all over the country.
Girls of Grace national gathering for girls via satellite will be held February 23 at the Livingston Mini Mall (formerly Dana’s Wholesale Furniture) on U.S. Highway 59 Business.
This special conference entitled “How You Live” will be simulcast by the Church Communication Network featuring performances by Points of Grace and many other Christian artists.
This will be a five-hour conference broadcast and during this time the Girls of Grace Ministry will be dealing with many moral issues and challenges that face teenage girls, providing positive Christian support and value based education.
The program aims to encourage the girls to become more active as Christian leaders in their own church family, as well as the community.
It could very well mean the beginning of a spiritual transformation in their girl’s lives.
Tickets to attend this special event will be 10 dollars per person and will help with expenses to provide this unique opportunity for girls in the community.
Sponsored by Lighthouse Revival Center, Conference Coordinator Toni Dillard says, “The teenage girls in your church need to be a part of something big and we are excited to be able to present this wonderful simulcast of music, teaching, challenge and encouragement with guest artists and speakers.”
Some of the topics that will be discussed during this event will include how you choose, how you feel, how you share the Gospel, how you give and more.
One particular topic that girls will want to hear about is Boy Behavior.
Music has the power to entertain and encourage, to both uplift and to challenge us.
For 15 years, Point of Grace has built a successful career delivering songs of substance.
While their lovely voices and soaring harmonies entertained, their songs illuminated the complexities of the human spirit and sparred us toward closer relationships with each other and God.
On their new collection How You Live, Shelley Breen, Leigh Cappillino, Denise Jones and Heather Payne serve up a compelling collection of songs that invite the listeners to examine their priorities and take stock of their lives.
“Let us encourage our girls, teaching and great music,” added Dillard.
Dillard also says volunteers are needed to help organize and present the event.
