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.
