"Wisdom, Warfare, and Worship," the Theme of This Year's Those Preachin Women

Under the theme, "Wisdom, Warfare, and Worship," those preaching women take to the pulpit July 14th-17th at Coke Memorial United Methodist Church, Louisville, Kentucky for four dynamic nights of preaching and teaching. Those Preachin' Women, in its third year, has become the premiere gathering of Christian women featuring some of this region's most gifted preaching women.

Rev. Kathy Ogletree Goodwin, Pastor, Coke Memorial United Methodist Church (photo left), and host of this event states, "This event provides an opportunity for women who are called by God, to the ministry of 'Word', to share their preaching gift. This event also provides an opportunity for women to be exposed to and network with other women who share in the 'passion' of preaching the Word of God. This event is about the diversity of preaching and is not a preaching competition. It expresses the greatness of our God and reveals how our great God can and will use all who avail themselves to God. It also exposes women to the riches of the Scriptures as seen through someone else's eyes."
