2020 UB Women’s Conference

Registration is now open for the 2020 UB Women’s Conference. This year’s conference will be held at the beautiful Blue Gate Garden Inn in Shipshewana, Ind. (where the 2012 conference was held).

Theme: “Together”

Our theme this year is “Together.” We will build around Hebrews 10:24, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works.”

Keynote Speaker: Lissa Litka

Lissa Litka is an author and speaker, and director of Beauty Will Rise Ministries. The is a staff pastor and counselor at Morning Star UB church in Kokomo, Ind.

Lissa has spoke at many events for women and teens. She has a God-given desire to help women see that their true identity comes from an intimate relationship with Christ, not from society’s standards. She transparently shares her life-lessons learned through storytelling, showing how to avoid toxic relationships and survive in the midst of our fast-paced, chaotic lives. She loves taking Bible characters, such as Rahab, and bringing them to life and helping her audiences relate to them on a personal level.

Lissa’s 2012 novel, “Masquerade,” is a fictional account of her experiences in an abusive relationship. “Abuse, A Story of Hope” is a bible study written to encourage women who have been or are in an abusive relationship with the hope found only in Christ.

Lissa lives in Indiana with her supportive, loving husband who continually reminds her of the importance of laughter. She is a homeschooling mom of three daughters who is constantly realizing the joys, sorrows, pride, and concern that are somehow wrapped up in this thing called motherhood.
