Union University hosts women’s conference
JACKSON, Tenn. — There was a packed house this weekend at Union University for a women’s conference.
Over 1,200 guests filled the seats of Union’s chapel to hear New York Times best-selling author Lysa TerKeurst speak.
The author has written more than a dozen books about religion and faith. People from other states traveled to Jackson to attend the event.
Tickets were $20 a person.
Organizers said the main goal of the conference is to build a strong spiritual connection.
“We want people to know who they are in Christ, and we want to help them grow in Him, find a relationship with Him and know they are welcome in his sight,” event chairperson Stephanie Edge said.
Englewood Baptist Church Worship Pastor Travis Cotrell provided musical entertainment for the event.
