“You’re either going to be fake or filled,” Southern Baptist Convention of Virginia executive director Brian Autry told women at the Connect Women’s Leadership Conference near Richmond, Va.

“No one wants a fake Christian leader,” Autry said. “Your pastors need mighty women of God” in church ministry.

The event Aug. 2-3 at the International Mission Board’s learning center, among many the SBC of Virginia holds to encourage and train women, included speakers and breakout sessions to encourage and challenge women in their homes, ministries and beyond.

Rhonda H. Kelley, adjunct professor of women’s ministry at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, was keynote speaker.

“I can’t serve until I’ve spent time in God’s presence,” Kelley said. “God created us equal to man in worth and value but different in our function and role.”
