Expectations High for Women’s Conference

VWC 08_small.jpg

Rock Church International in Virginia Beach, Virginia is gearing up for its annual women’s conference. This year’s “Prophetic Victorious Women’s Conference” will be hosted by Rock Church and sponsored by Anne Gimenez Ministries. A dynamic slate of Godly women reflects the “prophetic” theme of this year’s conference. Sessions will include Warring for Your Word”, “By Divine Design” and “Walking out Your Word” and organizers say it promises to be a powerful time as “God releases a great outpouring of His anointing among the attendees”. Scheduled speakers include Jane Hamon and Janet Kreis with special music by Candy Christmas and others.

Each session is focused towards the “whole woman” and is designed to encourage, inspire and to empower each “woman of God to reach her full potential in Christ Jesus”.

Dr. Anne Gimenez is the conference host and Senior Pastor of Rock Church. She's considered a role model for Christian's and is a pioneer among women in Christian leadership.

Anne Gimenez was ordained at the age of 19 and worked as an evangelist before marrying former drug addict John Gimenez in 1967. After an appearance on The 700 Club in 1968, John and Anne Gimenez founded the Rock Church, now a vibrant ministry with outreaches throughout Virginia, the United States and around the world.

In the 1980’s, The Gimenez’s began to call Christians throughout the United States to repentance and prayer. Many experts now believe that the “Washington for Jesus” and “America for Jesus” rallies helped changed the course of our nation and altered the American political landscape forever.

Doors of opportunity continue to open for Pastor Gimenez. Her Television and Internet ministry are expanding and can now be seen around the world. A 24 hour prayer line is handling hundreds of calls a week and as she approaches her fiftieth year of full time ministry, Pastor Anne shows no sign of slowing down. Organizers say that Dr. Gimenez moves powerfully as a Prophet, Teacher and an Evangelist and point out that she is repeatedly breaking new ground as the Church grows and evolves.

Jane Hamon is the daughter in law of Dr.Bill Hamon, founder of Christian International in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. Hamon says her ministry thrust is “to inspire the people she ministers to with courage to fulfill their destiny”. She’s a Pastor and an Apostle and ministers “hope and life to people who are bound”.

Other speakers include Author and Pastor, Dr. Lynn Lucas from Elwood, New York and Pastor Janet Kreis from Coudersport, Pennsylvania.

Dr. Lucas is the co-founder of Fountainhead Congregation and co-author of "No Longer a Victim", a book that explores ways to help those are suffering from different forms of abuse and addiction.

Author and Theologian, Janet Kreis has served as a Pastor and Associate at Gospel Tabernacle in Coudersport Pennsylvania for over 25 years and ministers in churches and to women's groups everywhere.

Special music will be provided by Candy Christmas. As a third-generation gospel singer, Candy is gospel music royalty with roots in the famous Happy Goodman Family. Candy and her husband, Kent Christmas, co-Pastor and minister to the poor and homeless in Nashville, Tennessee through “The Bridge Ministry”. Christmas points out that they offer an environment that is “non-traditional and non-threatening to attract people who might not otherwise hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ”.

Additional music will be provided by Minister Tammie Bennett and the Reverend Robin Blanchard. Blanchard is the Worship leader of Rock Church in Virginia Beach, Virginia which she co-Pastors with her husband Pastor John Blanchard. She has served in several leadership roles at Rock Church and is currently the Executive Director of Administration. Rev.
