SHE SPEAKS CONFERENCE
History

PROVERBS 31 MINISTRIES IS A NON-DENOMINATIONAL, NONPROFIT CHRISTIAN MINISTRY THAT SEEKS TO LEAD WOMEN INTO A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST.

With Proverbs 31:10-31 as a guide, Proverbs 31 Ministries reaches women in the middle of their busy days through free devotions, our First 5 mobile app, podcasts, speaking events, conferences, resources, Online Bible Studies and training in the call to write, speak and lead others.

With the help of our amazing staff and many volunteers, we offer real-life solutions to those striving to maintain life’s balance in spite of today’s hectic pace and cultural pull away from godly principles. Wherever a woman may be on her spiritual journey, Proverbs 31 Ministries exists to help women around the world: Know the Truth. Live the Truth. It changes everything.

Over 25 years ago,

Lysa TerKeurst made a promise to God that if she ever became a published author, she would help those who were coming after her. She Speaks Conference is part of that promise kept.

She Speaks is an annual conference in Charlotte, North Carolina offering professional training to women who write, speak and lead. This year, we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of She Speaks on July 31-August 1, 2020. This two-day conference, along with an optional pre-conference day, combines worship, inspirational keynote messages and workshops led by industry professionals on topics designed to equip women in all aspects of their calling.

Beyond the practical training, She Speaks offers a place to connect with others who get your calling. Since 2001, over 10,000 women have walked into the doors of She Speaks as strangers and left experiencing the power of community.

WHY ATTEND SHE SPEAKS?

Every calling we receive from the Lord involves a cost. There’s always a personal cost of time, energy and focus. And there’s often a financial cost. But it’s always worth it! For women who are called to write, speak or lead, attending She Speaks Conference is an investment in your calling.

You will receive invaluable training, create lasting connections that will help you now and in the future, and leave fortified to continue. Here are just a few of the benefits of attending:
