Growing in Godliness in a godless Generation – Open Hearts in a Closed World Conference 2023

Inside: If you missed the Open Hearts in a Closed World 2023 conference live, you can still watch all the sessions from the conference. Sharing all the teachings, links, and resources from the conference.

Open hearts in a closed world

The Open Hearts in a Closed World Women’s Conference is a 5-day online conference that provides women in the local church with sound biblical resources. The theme for this year’s conference is Growing in Godliness in a godless Generation. My hope was to put all the resources to watch this year’s conference in one location. If you missed it live, you can still watch all the sessions on YouTube.

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen

2 Peter 3:18

The first conference went online in 2020, and the motivation by founder, Brooke Bartz was to provide biblical teaching for women all around the world. In the first year, the conference reached over 25,000 women in over 30 countries.
