In early 2020, Arise Ministries was excited to announce that they would be hosting conferences in multiple locations with the intent to inspire growth in women and empower them on their journey. These conferences were called Daughters of Deborah, and excitement quickly began to build as the ministry planned.
However, with the emergence of a worldwide pandemic and the subsequent restrictions and guidelines, Arise Ministries sadly cancelled all their conferences.
All plans were put on hold, with no one knowing when, or if, the conferences would be able to be held.
Kim Eidel, President of Arise Ministries, was especially saddened as she felt this was something the Lord had laid on her heart. And there the conferences remained, even as the pandemic seemed to grow and more and more restrictions were put in place.
Then to her great surprise, a call came from the pastor of the Fountain of Life Worship Center in Foster, West Virginia inviting her to host the conference there.
Following the CDC guidelines, Arise Ministries quickly began to prepare for the Daughters of Deborah Awaken and Arise Glory Carriers Conference.
Speakers lined up for this event included Angela Stress, Sarah Washington, and Kim Eidel.
Worship was led by artist Telina Frye as well as the Fountain of Life Worship Center worship team.
Jasmine Frost, Prophetic Artist, was also in attendance, showing off how God uses and speaks through the creatives.
This conference wasn’t designed simply to get people excited, but was intended to wake up the sleeping giant in each of the attendees and equip them with the knowledge to advance in His Kingdom. And this was certainly accomplished.
The power-packed conference kicked off with a message from Angela Stress, which was later followed up by Sarah Washington and Kim Eidel. Each speaker brought a timely message from the Lord that touched the hearts and lives of all those in attendance.
Through the speaker’s teachings, ladies were able to learn how to grow and develop spiritually, how not to be ruled by emotions and feelings, how to find their tribe, how to help strengthen others, and how to build His Kingdom. Prayer for activation and impartation was also offered, and many lives were touched through this aspect of the service.
Each topic covered was essential to the life and growth of believers, and each lady attending walked out encouraged and equipped with a fresh revelation.
The Daughters of Deborah Awaken and Arise Glory Carriers Conference has been greatly praised by attendees as a service dedicated to the growth and advancement of believers.
Arise Ministries prays that those in attendance at the Foster conference will put into practice what was learned, and move forward in boldness as the Lord leads. And in time, they will host another Daughter’s of Deborah conference, and pray for the Lord to show up once again.
