We invite you to the next Global Women Summit to Connect with the Story of relationships among Global Women, our global partners, and the women they serve. At this unique two-day event you will enjoy being with like-minded women, learn about the mission of GW, investigate several key global issues affecting women, pray for these women, recognize how God is at work through GW, and identify ways you can connect with the story.
For the first time in 2014 the summit will take place on International Women's Day (March 8th). There will be many "firsts" for this event as well as back-by-request popular features like the interactive Prayer Experience; Marketplace; onsite Ministry Projects, time with our international guest, Natasha Clapaniuc, from Beginning of Life in Moldova; exciting worship; international tastings; and informative investigative sessions. The summit will be held on Friday and Saturday, March 7-8, 2014 at Third Baptist Church in St. Louis, Missouri. A dinner for Donors and Friends will be held on Thursday, March 6, at Kirkwood Baptist Church in Kirkwood. The Drury Inn & Suites Forest Park, 2111 Sulphur Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri, 63139, is the headquarters hotel. For reservations call 1.800.325.0720 and mention group number 2177822 or book your room(s) online. GW will provide scheduled transportation from this hotel to the Donor and Friends Dinner as well as to-and-from the summit.
