Lauren Chandler

Lauren Chandler is a wife and mother of three. Her husband, Matt Chandler, serves as the lead teaching pastor at The Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas. Lauren is passionate about writing, music, and leading worship, not only at The Village Church, but also for groups across the country. She is the author of two Bible studies, With Us in the Wilderness: A Study of the Book of Numbers and Steadfast Love: A Study of Psalm 107, the tradebook, Steadfast Love, and two children’s books, Goodbye to Goodbyes and the recently released, Praise Him. She loves spending time with her family, experiencing nature, and birdwatching from her kitchen window.

Erin Piner

Erin Piner’s calling is to join God in raising up a generation of (ordinary) women who faithfully handle his Word for the sake of the local church and the Great Commission. She enjoys co-teaching our Summit women’s Bible studies along with co-leading our women’s teaching track. Professionally, she serves as a sermon research assistant for Pastor J.D. Aside from working at the Summit, Erin has served as an international missionary in Asia for over six years. She is currently completing her doctorate at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. When Erin isn’t serving in ministry, you can find her studying, studying, or studying. She plans to find a different hobby after graduating.

Sheena English

Sheena was born and raised in India and she came to Raleigh, NC in 2008 to study at The College at Southeastern. She met her husband, Tyler, during their time at the seminary. They have been married for 9 years and have two beautiful (and feisty) girls. Along with being a mom, Sheena works part-time at the Little Lambs Preschool and also serves with her husband in Summit Kids. When she is not surrounded by kids (and let's be real, even when she is), she loves to read, study the Bible, write, have dance parties with her baby girls, organize (don't judge), watch Indian movies, engage in adult conversations and enjoy quality time with her people.


We are offering breakout sessions Friday afternoon on various topics. There is no extra cost, and you can attend as many or as few as you’d like. We hope you join us!

Trusting God in our Suffering, Loss, and Longings

Amy Whitfield, Rachel Rapacz, Lauren Martin

Suffering, loss, and longing are all things we will experience in this fallen world. As believers we do not experience these alone or without hope. In this breakout, we will hear how these women have and are depending on and trusting the Lord in the midst of great sorrow and pain.

Intimacy with God Over a Lifetime and in Different Seasons

Michal Rudolph

What does it look like to cultivate intimacy with God? How do we reach beyond theology and discover the true aim? How do we practically experience intimacy throughout life's different seasons and its varying capacity? How do we find stamina and continue in the faith through life's inevitable difficulties, time of discouragement or grief? Join us as we explore these questions and examine the scripture for guidance.

Making Disciples in the Workplace and Next Door

Ashley Reffit, Kristin Broughton, Beth Radford, Michelle Matthews

Jesus' last command was to make disciples. In this breakout, we will discuss what it looks like to be obedient to this command in our workplaces and neighborhoods. These women do not claim to be experts but fellow sisters in Christ who will share both joys and frustrations that accompany this ministry.

Redeeming Shame

Lori Frances, Marsella Hughes

Shame is a prowling lion. It lunges and tears in one area, only to retreat and hide temporarily. Then it forces itself into a new area, only to devour again. Why is shame such a prevailing hunter? Why do our relationships, sin struggles, bodies, marriages, politics, successes and failures all bear wounds given by shame? What is God's heart for us in our shame? These are some of the questions we seek to answer as we explore God's triumphant power over evil's active shame assault on the world today.

How to Have Hard Conversations

Elizabeth Hughes and Lauren Turner

God made us relational beings and relationships bring us deeper joy than we imagined possible, but they also open us up to conflict. Conflict is a natural part of relationships and God has given us much instruction for dealing with it in a wise way. Whether it is a fight with a roommate over how to clean the dishes, frustration with a specific personality trait of a coworker, confronting a sin you see in a friend, or sharing how your spouse has hurt you, God wants to use these conversations to make you both more like Himself. Hard conversations then become an invitation from God to deeper intimacy with Him as we seek to walk out what He has for us in our relationships with others.

Why Women Need Women: A Path to Healthy Female Friendships

Katie Stobel and Julie Scrudato

As women, we were created for deep friendship with other sisters for all seasons and stages of life. In this breakout we will explore what is required to have a healthy, thriving, biblical friendship, what makes a friendship unhealthy, and discuss what the enemy uses to destroy our friendships.

Cultivating Multiethnic Relationships

Janetta Oni

Multiethnic relationships are the building blocks to becoming a multiethnic church and cross-cultural ministry. But, how do we do it without hurting others or becoming a token? Join this breakout session for a conversation on how to cultivate multiethnic relationships with a faith-filled heart.

Tu Gemido Indecible, Su Consuelo Inmedible (Español Solamente)

Betsy Divers Gomez and Virmely Hernandez

No es común tener espacios seguros para nombrar en voz alta aquellas luchas internas que nos acechan. La ansiedad, la depresión, los pensamientos nocivos, las heridas sin sanar, son gemidos indecibles que a veces nos consumen y aislan. En esta sesión, juntas exploraremos el desierto del sufrimiento, la invitación a nombrar nuestras luchas y a recibir el consuelo sanador de Dios, que nos es dado con el propósito de aliviarnos y ser de consuelo a otros.
