Bethany '23: Finding Jesus, Healing & Hope in seasons of suffering, pain, grief & loss.
Bethany, a town located on the eastern slopes of the Holy Mount of Olives, 3km from Jerusalem and also the home of Mary, Martha and Lazarus. Scripture tells us that Jesus went there often to find rest and refuge, and where He enjoyed friendship and hospitality.
The village of Bethany derived its original name from two Hebrew words, “Beth An’ya,” meaning the “Home of the Poor” in the Hebrew dialect. It was a place where you found the poor, needy, broken & hurting. For Jesus it was a place of dwelling, sacrificial love, resurrection of Lazarus, His anointing and where he gathered His disciples and blessed them before ascending to heaven. The disciples response is recorded in Luke 24:
52 Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. 53 And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God.
In this one-day Women's conference, we invite you into a space to be equipped, to experience the creative nature of the Triune God, and to come and listen to testimonies of how Jesus still heals and delivers today. A place like Bethany, where sick, broken and hurting people encountered Jesus.
