The 2018 International Rachel’s Vineyard Leadership Conference will take place on September 24-27 at the Malvern Retreat Center in Pennsylvania.  Rachel’s Vineyard, a ministry for Healing after Abortion, has been offering such Leadership Conferences both Nationally and Internationally since 1999.  This year’s conference will be the largest to date with several hundred participants coming from throughout the world.  Rachel’s Vineyard is currently growing or developing in over 70 countries and in 25 languages.  It is apparent that Rachel’s Vineyard is a dramatic movement of the Holy Spirit, which has inspired over 300,000 volunteers throughout the world.  

The Rachel’s Vineyard Leadership Conference presents speakers who provide a wide range of motivating and beneficial topics to assist Rachel’s Vineyard teams from across the globe with new skills and strategies to engage in our successful post-abortion ministry.  This year, the speakers include the founders of Rachel’s Vineyard, Dr. Theresa Burke and her husband Kevin Burke, LSW; other speakers include Martha Shuping, M.D., Karen Stevenson, M.D. M. Div, the national director for Priests for Life, Fr Frank Pavone, along with long time leaders, Mary Lee Mason, Donna Gardener, LPC, Pam Bell, LPC, M. Div., and many many more. We have a schedule consisting of over 35 classes that are tailor-made for our conference!  Some of our topics include Prison Ministry, Finding Redemption for Post-Abortive Fathers, Sleep Deprivation, Facilitation Skills, The Latest Research on Abortion, Neurotheology, Ritual Abuse and so much more!

The theme of this year’s conference is Touched by Mercy, Moved by Love.  We are pleased to offer a special track for the regional coordinators of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign featuring co-founders Janet Morana and Georgette Forney. They will offer specific training for regional coordinators that will include classes on public speaking, media, healing workshops, and more!  We will also be offering a special track for Grief to Grace: Healing the Wounds of Abuse a 5-day retreat, composed by Dr. Theresa Burke. This track will provide specialized training for those throughout the world who are currently serving on teams or interested in the Grief to Grace Ministry.

This year’s conference participants are coming from far and wide, representing many states and countries, including Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, and Taiwan.  With such a large and diverse group joining together, speakers and attendees will be sure to inspire each other with new ideas, information, and strategies to assist and rejuvenate them to effectively address the trauma of healing abortion and abuse
