Arkansas Baptist women from across the state were refreshed in God’s Word during the Ministers’ Wives Conference on Monday at Walnut Street Baptist Church in Jonesboro.
The women were led in worship by Cory and Stephanie Epps, and the keynote speaker was Arkansas Baptist State Convention Women’s Ministry specialist Andrea Lennon, who spoke on being “refreshed in life and ministry.”
Lennon’s message was centered on Romans 15:13, “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

“As we look at this passage of Scripture, we are going to see no matter the situation or circumstance that we face that God’s hope, His peace, and His power are available to us through an abiding and trusting relationship with God through Jesus Christ,” Lennon told the ladies in attendance.
Lennon said her prayer for Monday’s event was for the women who are struggling, who may think they cannot be refreshed in life and ministry, to get a fresh view on God and a fresh view on their circumstances.
“We looked at Romans 15:13 and that particular verse really talks about trusting God in the midst of the unknown and knowing that His power is available to us no matter the situation that we face,” Lennon said.
“That was my prayer. That was my hope. I wanted the women to be loved and encouraged and for them to walk away with the truth of God’s Word applied to their everyday life.”
