The pathway to emotional healing, developing a positive mindset, and personal breakthroughs is on the agenda for The Unleashing #ISurrenderAll Women’s Conference. The theme of the event is “Releasing Me From Myself.” The two-day hybrid event is taking place via ZOOM and in-person Friday, October 14, 2022 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, October 15, 2022 at 10 a.m. at New Life Fellowship Worship Center, 4727 Old Court Road in Pikesville, Maryland.
The Unleashing #ISurrenderAll Women’s Conference is being presented by Operation CARE (Continuity, Assistance, Restoration, and Empowerment). Inc. A Maryland 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, Operation CARE is based out of Owings Mills, Md. and seeks to empower others holistically through self-enlightenment, encouragement, and education. Elder Hollis Woodard is the conference host.
“In 2015, God gave me the vision to start a thirty-minute bi-monthly Prayer Call the first and third Monday of each month,” recalled Elder Woodard. “After several months, through prayer and fasting, I was given the revelation to establish a women’s conference as tangible edification of how God wants us to surrender our all to Him.”
She added, “Our goal is to coach women into a transformative outlook on their past and form a positive mindset moving forward. The Unleashing #ISurrenderAll Women’s Conference is a powerful event designed to help women with the transformational process of releasing and surrendering whatever blocks their fullest expression of love, life, and power while they build healthy boundaries.”
In a safe, protected environment, Woodard said attendees will learn the capabilities of emotional healing, the power of prayer, and the value of hope. Through the event, organizers seek to help women take a personal inventory of where they are and establish a solid plan to get them where they want to go spiritually, mentally, physically, and financially. Conference topics will include: Dressing for the Healing Occasion; Falling in Love with Myself; Deliverance from Financial Bondage; Coping with Isolation; Letting Go: Enjoy where you are while you’re going where you want to be and discover The Real Me.
“This year’s conference will revolve around the Releasing Me from Myself theme and includes tips and tools on how to let go of unresolved emotional baggage, how to release emotions through prayer, and how to maintain a healthy emotional state despite unpleasant circumstances while taking them into a place of compassion,” said Woodard, noting the event is in its seventh year. “The Unleashing #ISurrenderAll Women’s Conference offers a two-day experience of learning, healing, and growing. This is not an average women’s conference! This interactive, lively, and inviting women’s experience will help you reconnect with who you are and why you were created.” Elder Woodard is also the CEO and Founder of Operation CARE.
“Some of the activities taking place during the conference will be a time of worship, learning through hands on activities during our five powerful master classes, two dynamic keynote conference speakers, prayer and exaltation, gifts, and raffle give aways,” she said. “And because we like to have fun, we will have a good old scavenger hunt.”
The keynote speakers for the conference are The Rev. A. Lynn Favorite and Pastor Denise Clarke. The Master Classes will be taught by Pastor TaWanda Moore, Dr. Gwendolyn Fancher, Ms. Renee Ilesanmi, Dr. Reshaunda Strickland, and Evangelist Carole Higgins. The Praise & Worship Leaders are Mrs. Francesca Mackie and Lady Raymonda Beach.
“The factors considered when selecting conference participates were strategic,” said Elder Woodard. “Although the prayer call is for all people, we wanted the conference to focus on women of all ages. We wanted to use this time together as an opportunity for us to remove ourselves from work, children, and other distractions, and to focus on ourselves, and to learn from each other. As women we have many things in common. We can relate with one another no matter what region we’re from. Therefore, forming a sisterhood circle was paramount.”
She continued, “As a woman, the ability to live life at its highest level of potential cannot be held down by self-doubt, buried guilt, emotional baggage, and traumatic experiences. Unpacking the emotional baggage that weighs women down can be difficult and uncomfortable. However, a life of purpose and destiny does not wait for a better time. Being proactive and taking measures towards changing and developing a positive mindset will help us lead to the path of more achievements and fewer obstacles. After years of dealing with emotional baggage and heavyweight, it’s time to address it.”
The conference cost is $50 (virtual) and $55 (in-person).
“We believe in giving back and would like to offer three FREE admissions to the first three women who contact us via voice or text at 443-380-0084 and tell us what our acronym CARE stands for,” said Elder Woodard.
