Conference FAQ

"Thriving isn't just surviving; it's about living with purpose and passion,
anchored in God's love."  - Christine Caine


The goal of GWC is to bring women of Gateway into a shared experience that not only teaches, encourages, and inspires, but even more importantly – binds us together as family, showing each one she is accepted and loved. She belongs.
