MINDEN – Cassie Hammett, founder of a ministry that shares Christ’s love with women ensnared in the sex trafficking industry, will challenge middle and high school girls to realize Christ is enough for them at the Masterpiece Conference, Oct. 6, hosted by the First Baptist Church in Minden
“Enough” is the conference theme.
”The Word shows time and time again about our worth in Christ,” said Bethany Jones, who co-founded the conference with her sister, Emily. “Our event this year will focus on how we are enough because of Christ and how He is enough for us.
“We believe that once young girls can understand that they are God’s masterpiece, their relationships and outlook can truly be impacted,” she continued. “We want this event to be both intentional and relevant for our young girls and leaders.”
During the main sessions, Hammett will encourage the girls, along with their adult sponsors, to understand God has a unique plan for their lives.
“I want them to understand that at this moment they have a mandate on their lives, placed on them by God,” she said. “They will also understand how to walk that out on a daily basis.”
Hammett founded The Hub: urban ministries as an outreach to the homeless. She expanded this ministry to establish Purchased: Not for Sale, after God touched her heart about the plight of women trapped in prostitution and the human trafficking trade. Additionally, The Hub provides tutoring for children, a food pantry, hot meals, worship services, weekly Bible studies, counseling and outreach to apartments.
The conference will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost to attend Masterpiece is $35, and includes lunch and snacks. For more information and to register, go to masterpiececonference.org.
