Calvary Vista Women’s Conference

Uncover and Embrace A Gospel-Centered Identity

“Who am I and why am I here are curiosities that are hardwired into humanity. Questions about our identity are not isolated to gender, age, or culture. Our identity will never fully take shape until we look fully upon Jesus. To behold Jesus and to know Him is to behold the truth of who you really are. We are accepted, secure, and significant in Christ!” — Sher Pai

BREAKOUT SESSIONS

1. Your REAL ID with Holly Nelson

Identity theft is a real concern in our world today.  Spiritual identity theft is just as real and can and does wreak havoc in our lives. This breakout is designed to alert you to the identity thieves in your life (deception, fear, insecurity, anxiety) and give you real, tangible ways to put into practice God’s REAL ID for you (His perfect plan and purpose) which is found in His ability to renew your mind and change your life, so you can prove for yourselves what your REAL ID is.

“I  am a new creation in Christ. The old has gone, the new has come.”  2 Corinthians 5:17

2. Confident in Christ in a Counterfeit Culture with Desiree Watson

This world is loud and it seems as though every time we turn around another self-help book is being promoted on how to love yourself more, how to be a better you, or even how to find your true purpose. As social media is a part of our daily lives, it is easy to fall into the trap of peer pressure and finding our purpose and identity through the eyes of man rather than God. This breakout is designed to shed light on the counterfeit cancel culture we live in today as well as give you tools and encourage you to be ROOTED in Christ. As we take our eyes off of ourselves and place them on Christ we will find true joy, purpose, and rest for our souls, and discover true abandonment to self.

“I am deeply rooted and built up in Him” Colossians 2:7

3. Finding Joy Through Sufferings with Marissa Kovach

We all want a blessed, comfy life, free of pain and sorrow. But as Christians, we at times forget that we are promised hardships in this life. Through our traumas and trials, we can become victims and forget there is a victory to be had.  In this breakout, we will unravel the meaning of suffering, God’s sovereignty, and how we identify with Christ through our sufferings. We will also discuss how our circumstances don’t have to define us but instead can become pathways that God can use for His purpose and glory.

I am a partaker in Christ’s sufferings.” 1 Peter 4:13

4. Contentment in Seasons of Change with Margie Stewart

As women, we face seasons of change in all ages and stages of life. These changes can be ones of our own choosing but they can also come into our lives as a result of unexpected circumstances around us. We may find our identity challenged in the areas of contentment and our sense of significance and purpose. In this breakout, we will look at how our seasons may change but ultimately our identity in Christ does not.  We can learn to live in contentment and abound in purpose when our identity is complete in Him.

Panel Discussion with Teri Abramovic |  Stacy Henschel |  Jeannette Pierinni | Marla Stewart 

The breakout will also include a panel discussion of diverse women sharing how they journeyed with Christ through seasons of change in their own lives.

“I am made complete in Him.” Colossians 2:10

5. Unfiltered: Examining Ourselves Through the Eyes of Christ with Veronica Bacquet  

In this Student Ministries breakout, we will focus on identifying areas of our life where we have misplaced our identity; such as in relationships, our appearance, and the approval of others. We will learn the practical tools of setting healthy boundaries with social media and speaking scripture over insecurities to help replace our identity back in Christ and not in the world.

“I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”   Psalm 139:14

6. Weapons of Victory with Angela Hernandez

The enemy is ripping us off as believers in so many ways. It’s time to take back the ground the enemy has stolen. It’s time to no longer be deceived and pick up our armor to fight this battle. In this breakout, we will walk through an interactive discussion that will expose the enemy’s tactics in our lives. Do you find yourself battling the fiery darts of rejection, isolation, loneliness, or depression? We will be encouraged and equipped to fight this battle effectively standing on the truths in the Word and who we are in Christ.

 “I am more than a conqueror in Christ”  Romans 8:37
