A message from Tanya McAvoy our keynote speaker:

"The message of Scattered has been an over 10 year journey.  This conference will be the Lord’s vision come to life as we find that we have all been scattered, tattered, and displaced.  We have all walked through trials, hardships, even joyful movements of God.  This conference will focus in on where we have been and ultimately where He wants us to go.  Come on the journey, allow the movement of the Lord to lead you and say yes to His call, direction and plan.  Come and gather in order to Scatter. You will never be the same."


Scattered, a Women's Conference. Coming to Deer Lake United Methodist Church February 16th and 17th, 2018.
