Around 120 leaders attended GB's winter conference today.
The event, at St Luke’s Church Centre in Birmingham, focused on equipping GB leaders to help young women deal with difficult emotions like guilt and shame. GB’s President Rachel Gardner and Advocacy & Participation Co-ordinator Claire Rush led the Volumise session looking at this important issue. Registered GB leaders will be able to access free resources on this topic on the GB leaders' online resource base next week.
The conference also gave GB leaders the chance to hear the latest GB news, and to worship and network with each other.
One GB leader says 'Just wow and awesome - thank you.'
Another says 'Once again an amazing day - smashing speakers and awesome worship.'
And another says 'Another great conference. Feel refreshed, empowered and God-filled.'
