I wanted to share these verses with you to express my heart concerning the purpose of these meetings. As women, so much demand is placed upon our lives–from our families, our jobs, and our ministries. All of us have plenty of things to spend our time and money on, and all of us have to be good stewards over both. I don’t want to host meetings that don’t benefit anyone, and you don’t want to sit through them. But, when we gather together in Jesus’ name we get to enjoy His fullness. It’s worth it!

First, make the effort to draw nigh unto Him (James 4:8). Don’t be distracted or inhibited. Anticipate His presence. He wants to draw nigh unto you, and He promised He would. That excites me!

Second, expect this weekend to yield every benefit God promised you because of your financial investment and your investment of time. It’s an automatic by-product that your heart will be in your investments (Luke 12:34).

Third, remember the importance Jesus placed on sitting at His feet and receiving. Even though He acknowledges the vital role women play in caring for and strengthening others, we need to understand the priority of taking time to strengthen ourselves spiritually. Jesus said when we do this, we’ve chosen the good part, which will not be taken away from us! Praise God (Luke 10:38–42)!


The Conference

For over 20 years now, women from across the nation (and the globe) have trekked to Midland, MI, for the annual Women of Righteousness conference. It’s the biggest party of the year…and we want YOU to join us!

We’re talking about a ladies-only weekend to recharge and refresh your faith in a really big way. You’ll leave the Women of Righteousness weekend feeling encouraged and rejuvenated. It’ll give you the push you need to face life with a new outlook. If you come with friends you’ll leave closer than you were; and if you come alone, we’re sure you’ll meet someone fabulous along the way.

So c’mon and join us in Midland, MI, for our annual women’s conference! You’ll experience anointed worship, encouragement from God’s Word, and have a whole lot of fun with women just like you!

Vickie Barclay

Vickie Barclay

Host and Co-Founder, Living Word Church

Vickie Barclay, wife of Mark T. Barclay, has successfully served alongside her husband for over 40 years. Together they have raised two children “under the pews” who now serve full-time with them—as well as helping raise up and train their grandchildren to do the same.

Vickie and Mark have been happily married for over 45 years, equipping her with godly wisdom for married couples and families. Vickie is also a military wife, as Mark served as a United States Marine and was deployed for 21 months to Vietnam. This gives her a strong ministry to veterans and their families.

In 1980, Mark and Vickie pioneered Living Word International Church, where they have pastored ever since. Vickie is a very experienced pastor’s wife with a powerful anointing to help pastors and their wives. She has a deep love and appreciation for the body of Christ and the tremendous strength of the local church.

Not only does Vickie travel extensively with her husband, but she is also very busy teaching and helping the local churches across America and other countries of the world. She hosts a renowned national ladies’ conference each year and has authored a life-changing daily devotional that both women and men enjoy annually. Vickie is known for her very practical approach to life and ministry. Her fun and “real” application of the Word of God is very refreshing. You won’t want to miss being in her meetings and receiving from the anointing upon her as Jesus flows through her.
