Last updated 3/16/2022 at 9:57am
Girls in middle school and high school, along with their moms, are invited to the Imagine Teen Girls' Conference on Saturday, April 2, at Pikes Peak Christian Church, 4955 Bradley Road in Security.
The event will run 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. and includes food, worship, breakout sessions, fun activities, and several live speakers, including "The Connection Expert" DeeDee Lake, often featured here in this newspaper. Her topic will be "Creating Your Own Reputation."
Also speaking will be:
Mrs. Colorado 2021 Danette Haag - "I Am Priceless."
Heidi and Rob Gleghorn - "Helping Women Heal" and "The Guy Panel."
Miss Juneteenth Ava Parker - "Walking by Faith Through Fear."
CJ Callahan and Vicki Clark - "Let's Talk: for Moms, Youth Leaders and Adults."
The theme is Masterpiece, and PPCC is hosting the event. Imagine is a standalone, nondemoninational, locally-run conference that is held at different churches around the region every year.
"It has a seven-year rotation of themes so that a girl coming in sixth grade will go through all of the seven themes before graduation," said Jessica Boyer, one of the organizers. "Imagine is helping to equip girls with confidence and knowledge to face the ever-changing world, to be a light to the lost and to change the future by tusting in who God made them to be."
Boyer said the conference hopes to reach teen girls from throughout the community of Colorado Springs "to help them be a better them so that they can change the world by finding identity and strength in God."
The theme Masterpiece is taken from Ephesians 2:10: "For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."
"It's designed for tween/teen girls and their moms, focusing on their worth and their value as individuals," organizer Vicki Clark said. "The mission for The Imagine Conference is to equip and encourage teen girls and provide them with resources for this season of their lives."
The event includes lunch and snacks. Participants will take home a goody bag full of treats and resources to help them stay grounded and continue their journey. Conference content is geared towards teens 13 and older; however, girls as young as 10 are welcome. Mothers are encouraged but not required to attend. Cost is $40 for teens, $20 for moms.
