Ladies, mark your calendars now for the Extraordinary Women Conference, a weekend designed to help you draw closer to the heart of God and His amazing plan for your daily life. The conference will be held at the Mabee Center, February 28 through March 1, 2014.

     The Extraordinary Women Conference will be a wonderful weekend filled with music, praise and worship, entertainment and special guest speakers.         

    Lonestar is celebrating their 20th year by reuniting with original lead singer Richie McDonald, releasing a new album, and embarking on an anniversary tour, including a performance at the Extraordinary Women Conference in Tulsa. Known for merging their country roots with rich vocals, the band has achieved ten #1 country hits along with receiving the CMA Vocal Group of the Year award in 2001.

    For all their accomplishments, the biggest achievement of the band’s career has been witnessing the impact of Lonestar songs in the lives of others, according to lead singer Richie McDonald. “Music is a very powerful tool and can help people going through both good and bad times,” he says.

    McDonald is proud that his band will be reaching fans at a special event like the Extraordinary Women Conference. “I want people to know that I am a country artist, but I was a Christian long before I was a country artist. It is rewarding to know that I can sing about my faith and maybe make a difference in somebody’s life.”

    Also performing at the EWomen conference, Michael O’Brien was the lead singer of the Christian band NewSong for seven years. Sensing that God was placing a strong call on his life to step out and minister as a solo artist, he resigned his position with the band and has now been serving in the music ministry on his own for 20 years. Michael has built a reputation as an incredibly gifted singer and songwriter with a heart for ministering to the body of Christ.

    Julie Clinton, president of Extraordinary Women, has spoken to hundreds of thousands of women as host of EWomen conferences all across America. A person of deep faith, she cares passionately about seeing women live out their dreams by finding their freedom in Christ. “We as women give of ourselves all day, every day – to our husbands, children, careers and households – but we rarely give back to ourselves. This conference is our way of giving back to women, offering them a weekend away to experience hope and healing through Jesus Christ,” says Julie. “Extraordinary Women shares with all women, regardless of their religious affiliation, the love, acceptance and completeness God has for us.”

     “Our speakers will discuss issues related to women, many that aren’t necessarily talked about at church on Sunday morning, such as divorce, illness and disappointment,” says Julie.

    The theme of this year’s conference, “The Joyful Journey,” comes from Romans 15:13 – “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

    “Life is not always joyful,” says Julie, “but we must remember that the only true everlasting joy can be found through the Lord.”

    In addition to Julie, several other women will offer insightful and inspirational presentations at the conference, including Karen Kingsbury, Chonda Pierce, Carol Kent, Margaret Feinberg and Lisa Whelchel.
