47th Annual Woman’s World Conference
February 23-24, 2024
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
This conference will help women of all ages understand that it doesn’t matter what happens politically, morally, socially, or economically in the world if we have Christ in us. God will never leave us and we can be confident that Jesus is the rock to build our lives on. It will be a fun and inspirational break from the winter months for all ages. Woman’s World has been a ministry of Manhattan Christian College since 1978.
Registration Will Open in November
Ellie Lofaro is a respected Bible teacher, inspirational speaker and humorist. She has authored five books and her articles have been published in numerous magazines in the US and abroad. She has addressed audiences on five continents and has also taught in both men’s and women’s prisons across the globe. On three occasions, she was honored by Focus on the Family as being “The Best of the Best.” Ellie’s message is a wonderful blend of plainspoken truth, common sense practicality and disarming humor. Drawing from the context of real life, she deftly handles the Word of God and steadily directs her audiences to consider what concerns them in light of God’s timeless truths. With her trademark quick wit and convincing demeanor, she pairs biblical principles with life’s deeper questions. The result? An audience who willingly joins Ellie in the journey toward better understanding and applying God’s grace and truth to their lives.
Equally comfortable sharing the “Great News” alongside acclaimed teachers at national conferences, on a television broadcast, or roaming the halls during a midnight search for chocolate at a women’s retreat, Ellie effuses a natural ease and engaging warmth. As her friend Patsy Clairmont once said about meeting Ellie for the first time; “she is the kind of person you immediately hope will always be your friend.”
Ellie is a first generation American and the second of five children in a “very Italian” family. A native New Yorker, she speaks of being brought up “with the awareness of God, but not the experience of God.” However, when she encountered a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, she realized her new identity as a “Capital C Christian;”
Completely convinced of God’s love and His mandate to “go and tell,” Ellie has committed her life to using her time and talent to inspire others with His goodness and grace.
