Sparrow Conference exists to catalyze the next generation of reconcilers.
Our ministry pillars are Truth, Freedom, Identity, and Purpose.
Jesus describes himself as the truth in John 14:6 and his word (the Holy Bible) is described as truth. We believe that the scriptures are true, authoritative, and sufficient. It is by studying these truths found in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, that women are able to gain an understanding of who God is and thus who they are in relation to him. Sparrow Conference wants to point women to the truth of the Word of God where they can fully interact with the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ and be strengthened, rooted and encouraged to see the world through a redemptive lens.
If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free…So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
John 8:31, 36
A life changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a life of freedom. We have been set free from lives of sin and death and now we have been given eternal life in Christ Jesus. The implications of this Freedom are vast. Although freedom has been made available, we can so easily fall into enslavement. However, we know that He who began a good work in us will bring it to completion in Christ Jesus. At Sparrow Conference women will have real and honest conversations about the areas of struggle that are so common to us all, and ask the Lord to grant freedom from the chains that keep them from experiencing true joy and abundant life. Together, we will learn to put sin to death, and walk in the fullness of freedom that God provides.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Sparrow Conference will seek to encourage women to find peace, joy and confidence through rooting their identity in Christ as they are being transformed into His likeness. We long to see women no longer defined by their achievements or failures or plagued with insecurity and comparison but find their identity in who Jesus Christ says they are- new creations, chosen daughters, heirs, a royal priesthood, his workmanship, beloved.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellences of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
1 Peter 2:9
Christ has called us to a purpose outside of ourselves. Sparrow Conference will encourage women to realize their greater purpose and calling in Jesus Christ- to know Him and make His name known. Through pursuing Truth, experiencing Freedom, and rooting our Identity in Christ, women can be a vessel for the gospel and the advancement of His Kingdom. Significance is found in His purposes.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
