COLUMBIA, TN — Sisters of Standard will host its 12th Annual Women’s Weekend at New Life Ministries in Columbia, Tennessee. The annual event attracts guests from guests from Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Ohio, Illinois, and across the state of Tennessee. The theme for the conference is, “StreetWalkers: Women In & Out the Streets” John 4:28-30. Conference Host Shelley Taylor explains, “There is a harvest of souls in the streets, and The Church must leave the comfort of our pews and go out to the streets to gather them. Imagine the prophets and evangelists, pastors and teachers who are sleeping in the streets, dancing in the clubs, drinking in the bars … who need to be awakened to salvation and purpose.” There is no registration fee for this weekend filled with excellent speakers, anointed music, relevant teaching, and powerful prayer.

On Thursday, February 28, 2019, the weekend will begin with prayer. Intercessors from around the region will come together at 6pm with both petitions and praises for the body of Christ, the secular government, and will cry out for revival.

Friday, March 1, the ladies will continue with prayer at 6pm, and worship at 6:30pm. Lady Rosaline Brinkley from Church of Joel in Lebanon, Tennessee will be the speaker.

On Saturday, March 2, the weekend continues at 9am with the “PTA,” or Palm Tree Academy. Host Shelley Taylor explains, “In the Book of Judges Chapter 4, we learn that the Prophetess and Judge Deborah imparted wisdom from under a palm tree; we will have our own ‘Palm Tree” learning moments during Women’s Weekend 2019.” At the Palm Tree Academy, Prophetess Melissa Sanders of Atlanta, Georgia, will impart, instruct and encourage.
