Discerning God’s Voice: a Theology of the Holy Spirit

There are so many voices in this world: voices in media, voices of friends, family, and pastors—even voices in our heads. How do we discern God’s voice in the cacophony and, more importantly, know what to obey? This session will delve into how to discern the leading of God through a theology of the Holy Spirit.

God Knows—the Omniscience of God

There is so much we cannot know or see. God’s omniscience—His ability to know everything—frees us to rest in His perfect timing and sovereignty. Learn the theology of God’s omniscience and how it affects your daily life by renewing your hope, releasing you from your burdens, and granting you confidence in His character.

How to Handle Life’s Transitions: a Theology of Humility

Transitions in life are hard. Change is always challenging. There is a certain instability that we feel through transitions because we are forced to exchange what we’ve known and embrace the unknown. So how can we face life transitions well? It starts with reclaiming a lost and neglected virtue that will provide security, strength, and confidence in the midst of shaky circumstances in life.

Can the Bible Be Trusted? Building a Strong Bibliology

If the Bible isn’t trustworthy, the entire Christian faith has no leg to stand on. Why do we trust this group of books? How do we answer tough questions about the Bible with grace and truth? And what do we do when we doubt the Bible ourselves? These and more questions will be addressed in this session.

A Note from Phy

Hello friends!

Five years ago I scheduled a meet-up in Grand Rapids, Michigan so I could meet some of my online community in person. Before I knew it, 80 people were coming from all over the Midwest! We used an extra room in the seminary stocked with granola bars and water bottles, and we spent time praying, worshipping, and studying church history together. Some of those people became long-term friends of mine. Today, what started as a simple meet-up has become Verity Conference. Last year 290 people from over a dozen states registered to attend in person and almost 300 more watched online.

What makes Verity different? What sets us apart when there are so many fantastic women’s conferences you could attend instead?

Verity is a training conference. We aren’t here to give you an emotional high. We don’t focus only on relationships or topical teaching. Instead we go deep every time. Our speakers are men and women who aren’t afraid to train you in God’s Word and the application of theology to real life. But what is most special about Verity—and what has set Every Woman a Theologian apart from the beginning—is our emphasis on theology in community. We want the women who come to our conference to leave ready to disciple the people in their own cities and streets. Theology is our vehicle, but evangelism is our goal.

Every Woman a Theologian’s mission is to teach you to “know what you believe, live it boldly, and communicate it graciously.” We believe the gospel is not just for you; it’s for everyone you know! At Verity Conference, you’ll join hundreds of other men and women who feel God’s pull to share the gospel with their friends, family, children, spouses, and beyond. As a bonus, you’ll get to learn all this in my hometown of Petoskey, one of the most beautiful small towns in the Midwest, right on Lake Michigan at the height of our fall color season!

I can’t wait to meet you October 13-14th as we go deep in God’s Word together and proclaim how God has “delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His Beloved Son.” (Col. 1:13).

How do I get there?

There are several ways to get to Petoskey:

Where do I stay?

Hotel is not covered in your ticket price. However, we do recommend these local hotels:
