In Song of Songs 6:9 from The Passion Translation, your Bridegroom King Jesus calls you His beloved dove, unrivaled, without equal, beyond compare, perfect, and favorite. Basically, this verse is saying that He finds you Extraordinary!  

The purpose of this conference is two fold:

  1. It is for you to learn to marvel at the wonder of you!  He wants you to see you like He sees you, and if you can embrace the truth about who you are, then nothing will be impossible for you to accomplish, no calling too hard for you to walk in, no assignment too difficult for you to handle.  

  2. It is to equip and unleash into the world, daughters, who know who they are, whose they are, and how to infiltrate and impact their sphere of influence as a sign and a wonder of the only True and Living God. 

Extraordinary takes place April 26-27 here at Gateway Christian Fellowship. Our guest speaker for our two evening sessions is Danielle Babin from Cedar Park, TX. During the day on Saturday, we have a number of workshops for you to sign up for, all geared to speak to and call out of hiding the real you, the beloved, unrivaled, unequaled, incomparable, perfect daughter of God.  

The cost is $15 per person and includes all evening sessions as well as one Saturday workshop of your choice (space is limited in each workshop so sign up as soon as possible).  Sign up online or in the Atrium after church on Sundays.  



Danielle is a mother and leader of both the church and business community in Cedar Park, Texas. She co-pastors  of Shiloh Church with her husband, Lawrence Babin, and operates a real estate business while she raises 6 children, ages 8-21 years. Her passions in life are to see women empowered to be everything that the Lord has designed them to be through a lifestyle of worship, prayer, and commitment to relationships. Her desire is to be authentic so that the voice of God can be heard, truth can be revealed, and identity can be established.

Creative Writing:

Story is power!  With it, doorways into different worlds, realities, and dimensions can be opened and explored.  The problems of life can be put on the back burner, and the reader can be swept up into grand adventures.  Story takes the focus off of our troubles and fears and offers us a doorway into escape.  As Christian writers, we have the unique privilege and ability to be able to open doors into worlds where people become immersed in stories that motivate them to change, encourage them to endure, and equip them to deal with real life.  Fantasy CAN and DOES infiltrate reality in order to bring healing and relief to the reader.  Fantasy CAN and DOES show people the real beauty and power of living a life with and for Christ.  If you believe writing is your gift and calling, this workshop will help you discover or re-discover the power of the pen as it relates to the influence you can have in this world.  You will receive some practical instruction, you will write, you will share, and you will walk away knowing the power you have to change lives with story.
