This year's theme... 

                                  women mentoring women

We desire to be women who invest into the lives of other women -- through different life seasons, careers, relationships, challenges, and joys. In order to be women who can walk alongside other women, we need to examine what it would take for us to answer this call. Rev. Christine Lee from All Angels' Church in New York will be our main guest speaker. She will be bringing a team of four women who will be serving the women of Open Door. Through our time together, we will examine three areas that women most often struggle in building relationships with other women.
