The Deborah N.O.W Ministries’ Empowerment Conference, set for Saturday, February 8, promises to be an exciting and spiritually moving experience, as it reinforces the value and relevance of the Christian community supporting the Jamaican society in battling negative forces.

Now in its eighth year, the conference, to be held at The Escarpment Road New Testament Church of God in August Town is being hosted under the theme: “This Cup… Process. Promise. Purpose” which signifies a focus on seeking triumph over the various trials that individuals, and by extension, the church and the nation is currently battling.

Founded by Susan Gordon-Kinnane in 2012, Deborah N.O.W Ministries is a non-profit Christian organization seeking to nurture and support those who face dire circumstances, while also highlighting the resilience of many who have overcome hardships. To date, the conference has over a thousand at a sitting.

With a strong focus on women and now men, the faith-based motivational seminar creates a healthy space for them to share issues and access support – a haven for ideas to contend and solutions met; each year, as part of a mission to empower, the event features renowned speakers to motivate and inspire.

“What we have done is let women know that they are not alone with the challenges they face; that there are others who are facing similar circumstances and there are those of us who want to give our support. No one should feel ashamed by what they are experiencing or what they have been through,” said Benita Aiken, Committee Executive, Deborah N.O.W Ministries.

She urged church leaders from all denominations to encourage their members to attend the event, which is expected to speak to key issues affecting Jamaica, while connecting on a deeper, spiritual and holistic level, leaning on the power of testimonies about the work of the Lord.

“Every year people leave the conference empowered and inspired to make changes in their lives based on the testimonies that they are exposed to. We expect this year we will be even more fulfilling,” Aiken said.
