2020 UB Women’s Conference

The UB women’s conference is on for September 25-26, 2020. However, it will be entirely online.

We had planned an in-person conference in Shipshewana, Ind. That has been postponed until 2022. The Covid-19 pandemic created too many uncertainties regarding health, travel, and other issues—the same issues affecting numerous conferences of all kinds.

But though we’ll miss seeing people in person, we’re excited about being “Together” with each other online.

So, we are not canceling! We believe that God is doing a new thing! We’re moving the conference to an online experience so we can connect and be “Together” in a different way.


Individual registration: $10. You will receive a conference packet in the mail prior to the conference. It will include discussion guides and themed gifts. Closer to the date of the conference, you will receive the livestream link.

Host Site: $30. You will receive a conference packet for yourself. In addition, you will receive door prizes so that you can interact with the give-away portion of the conference. In order for each individual attending your “watch party” to receive a conference packet, they must also register as an individual. Closer to the date of the conference, you will receive the livestream link.

Here’s what we have planned
for our Virtual Conference

  • We will gather online on Friday evening (September 25) and Saturday (September 26).
  • Our speaker, Lissa Litka, will lead us through our theme of “Together.”
  • We’ll have online opportunities for interaction, and ways for you to discuss, worship, and pray.

You may choose to tune in on your own or with a few friends in your home. We encourage ministry leaders to organize viewing parties of any size based on your unique circumstances and state’s regulations. If you are free to gather in a group, consider having a mini retreat!

We’ll be putting information on our Facebook page as we develop the plan.
Please pray that God would unite, encourage, and bring fruit from this time “Together.”

Keynote Speaker: Lissa Litka

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

Lissa has spoken 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.

“Together” Theme Verse

Exodus 3:14 God said to Moses, “I AM who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has set me to you.’”

Suggestions for Watch Parties

  • Share a meal
  • Use a large monitor or screen for showing the livestream
  • Hold your own “silent auction” and give proceeds to a local charity
  • Bring games or crafts for before and/or after the sessions
  • Create your own watch party “theme” poster – there just might be a contest for the best use of theme!
