What is the Flourish Conference?

Flourish is an annual weekend, occurring typically in early March, that is set aside for women to gather together and explore the identity of God our Father and what that means for us as his followers. 


The conference is held at the Winebrenner Theological Seminary building on the campus of the University of Findlay, in Findlay OH. It's sponsored by the Women's Ministries which is a part of the Churches of God, General Conference (CGGC). 


Though the Conference is affiliated with the CGGC denomination and encourages women from Churches of God churches to join us, all women are invited to attend. You'll meet ladies from the greater Findlay/Lima area as well as women from across the CGGC Denomination, from coast to coast. 


So come away with us and rest awhile. Be replenished by His truths & promises found in the scriptures. Discover the power of God Almighty and the Holy Spirit's never-ending pursuit of us. 

Meet new friends and treasure old relationships. You are welcome here!


What will you find at the Flourish Conference?

God, Biblical Teaching, Community, Jesus Christ, Love, Accountability, Training, Laughter, Prayer, Renewal, the Holy Spirit, Friends, Worship, Transformation, Hope and Real Women. 


You'll find women that are broken, imperfect, messy, and human. Yet, you'll find those same women were created by our Heavenly Father and designed with gifts, skills, experiences, and passions that are intended to be shared with our  hurting & hopeless world. Women who are a part of God's mission and have been sent out into their communities to develop relationships with those who cross their paths. Women who will shine His light on those paths.  Women leaders who will join the journey with others and accompany these fellow travelers back to their Heavenly Father. Women who mentor, teach and disciple other women. Women who make the kind of disciples that make more disciples. 


John 15:8 "My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples.


What's the theme mean? Upcycled: From our Mess to His Message

Here's what good old Merriam Webster has to say about the verb upcycle:

~to recycle (something) in such a way that the resulting product is of a higher value than the original item
