Bojangles' Coliseum will host one of the nation’s largest gatherings of Christian women on Oct. 11-12.  Women of Faith will feature chart-topping musical artists Third Day and CeCe Winans, comedian Ken Davis and world-class authors and Bible teachers Sheila Walsh, Lisa Harper, Liz Curtis Higgs, Lisa Bevere and Max Lucado. 

“The Women of Faith Conference is just one of many diverse events held at Bojangles' Coliseum that has a positive impact on the community,” said Bojangles' Coliseum General Manager George Hite. “We are honored to bring the Women of Faith Conference to the Charlotte community and feel confident that the event will leave a lasting impact on the women who attend."

Founded in 1996, Women of Faith is expected to welcome its five millionth attendee during the 2013 “Believe God Can Do Anything” tour, which will make stops in 24 cities across the United States between August and November.

“This year’s theme was created to refocus the minds of women, reminding them that we are not in control, God is, and through Him we can find peace, healing and restoration,” said Barry Walsh, vice president of creative at Women of Faith.

Multiple studies show that women experience greater levels of stress than men on average, including work, home life, major life events, and social and economic concerns, which, if not managed, can lead to post traumatic stress disorder, mental disorders, depression and other health problems. 

“What we can offer at our events is hope and experiential renewal,” said Debbie Stuart, church and leadership development director for Women of Faith. “Whether it is a broken family situation, breast cancer or illness, infertility, problems with children, loss of a spouse or child, financial or marital difficulties, we want women to know that God is the ultimate healer and by clinging to Him pure refreshment will take root in their lives.”

Women of Faith has also partnered with producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett to feature their series “The Bible,” whose success made History Channel the top cable network, at this year’s events. Women of Faith will incorporate a special collection of film footage from “The Bible” that will be woven throughout the event to bring a fresh creative element to the program.
