Saturday October 26th, 2019.

PTC is pleased invite you to our third Women's Training Conference! 

We are excited to have Carmelina Read back again and we look forward to also hearing from Elizabeth McDougall, this year.

Carmelina Read will give us practical teaching about God's original design for womanhood and what this looks like in marriage, family and church, and how it applies to today's world.

Elizabeth McDougall will be sharing with us about courageous women in the Bible who feared God, who knew God and who trusted God. We will learn from these faithful examples and how we, too, are called to be faithful in today's world.
