Join us online or in-person for Engaging in the Kingdom, our annual Regional Women’s Conference. This event has always been a favorite for women from all over the region to gather and enjoy an amazing time of engaging in God’s Kingdom. God is so faithful to come and touch our lives as we experience real, tangible life change in his presence! This conference will be filled with incredible worship and prayer ministry times, great biblical teaching, and opportunities to engage in authentic and intimate community with other women who love Jesus.

Conference Details

This year, the conference will be livestreamed from the Duluth Vineyard, and we’ve come up with some creative options for you and your friends to “engage”:

  • Independently online and from the comfort of your own home, where you will join a vibrant and interactive online community of women in which you can chat, receive prayer, and have the option to join virtual hangout sessions for more connection time
  • In a local HUB hosted by your local Vineyard church, where you can gather with women of your community for livestreamed worship and sessions, and your own in-person ministry times. Current Hub locations include:
