The Global Christian Professional Women's Association (GCPWA) is pleased to announce its inaugural conference to be held in Myrtle Beach, SC, at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel from Saturday, September 17 – Sunday, September 18.

The annual GCPWA Conference serves to bring career women of faith together to learn from one another, join in fellowship, and be empowered by 20 dynamic, engaging, spirit-filled speakers.

These 20 speakers hail from all walks of life: from CEOs and relief workers, to ministers and novelists, they'll tell their stories, share tips for success, and inspire attendees to reach higher in their works and in their faith.

There will also be time reserved for attendees to do some speaking of their own. Scheduled networking sessions will allow the opportunity to connect with peers. GCPWA members will be invited to participate in a dedicated community service activity on Saturday along with a special evening reception.

Award-winning comedian and national speaker Lisa Mills will weave humor with insight as she delivers her in-demand keynote message of Transforming Ordinary into Extraordinary.

And finally, award-winning gospel artists Endure will electrify attendees with their harmonious and anointed voices.

Tickets for the GCPWA Conference are available now and are offered in three unique packages with added benefits and discounted admission for current GCPWA members. Members will be granted access to a pre-event performance and reception, as well as the opportunity to meet with speakers.

The GCPWA is a global non-profit organization serving women of faith in the workforce. The association's mission is to support and guide women in managing their careers, finding fulfillment in their faith, and balancing these goals with the demands of day-to-day life.

Through workshops, fellowship, and webinars, GCPWA members are empowered to strive further in their careers, and are able to find comfort and acceptance in the association's powerful sense of community.
