Bold Venture for Women 2011

What a great time we had at Impact Church this past week as 145 women of 7 languages came together to celebrate who we are in Christ.

Lee Grady brought these women together along with speakers June Evans of Atlanta, Georgia and Natasha Schedrivaya from Moscow, Russia. The rich humor of June Evans and stories of the village ministry of Natasha filled our hearts with awe, not of the speakers, but of our God.

I was overwhelmed with the God that abided in each of these women and the incredible stories of His faithfulness to us. I was overwhelmed as Natasha spoke of the 47 degrees below zero Celsius temperatures that her team would minister in. I was overwhelmed as June would have us in stitches at her humorous stories of God’s love and devotion toward us. I was overwhelmed as women shared their stories and struggles and how they overcame because of their God within.

There is something about being with 140 passionate women that leaves you spent and never again the same. Lord, let our passion rise for You! Let us never become tired of pursuing You! Let the Holy Fire of Your Spirit burn intensely within us until we look like You!

I thank God that He has allowed me to partner with Him and these 140 women for the sake of His Kingdom!


  1. Yes, Pastor Donna, it was a great gathering of women desiring to pursue God will all their hearts. I must also include you. Thank you for hosting this gathering and for all the work your church ladies did. It was a very welcoming atmosphere, and I’m not talking about just a beautiful building. It was a place of safety for the women.
    May the Lord continue to bless you and I pray God’s encouragement upon your life and ministry.
    You are a blessing!
