Compassion Ministry

Let’s make a difference in the lives of women in local domestic violence shelters. Collect gently used purses and unused beauty products and bring them to the conference. We will fill the purses and send them to the shelters to brighten the day of women who’ve had to leave everything behind.

Additional Information

Goals & Objectives

  • Network and fellowship with other workers serving in a similar role. Create a feeling of connectedness for our EC workers who many times feel on an island.
  • Quality professional development that educators can use to strengthen their centers.
  • Christian witness among participants where they feel the love of their Savior the day of the conference (many times their PD is from secular organizations and not centered on Christ).
