• 2017 NACWE Conference | National Association of Christian Women Entrepreneurs | Networking & Online Networking

Why Attend the NACWE Conference?

Ready to expand your Christian Women circle and network with women who are success minded individuals?

You’ll have plenty of time to get to know the other attendees.
Connecting with others allows you to share what you’re up to, offer advice
and learn if there are opportunities to continue to build professional and personal relationships.

You won’t just leave motivated and inspired, you will leave equipped.
Equipped with your personalized step-by-step process to carry out your plans for leaving a legacy
and defining your leadership through the power of your story.

Leave these 3 days confident that you have what it takes to move forward
with your biggest goals with God and other Christian women by your side.

We invite you to the conference for women, but not all about women.

It's a gathering of women around entrepreneurship, being a business owner, and most importantly, the Word of God.

By God's grace, we will walk away better prepared to run our business with confidence

and with action steps in hand to expand our network, build relationships

and connect with other Christian Women Entrepreneurs.


... a global network of Christian Women Entrepreneurs who seek to prosper in our vocation, bear fruit in every good work, build trustworthy relationships, and impact the marketplace for Christ.


… with other business owners, authors, coaches, consultants, speakers and so many others in a place where we are all one another’s supporters but most of all, we all LIVE by God’s Grace.


… being in the room with the women you have been connecting with online. Embrace the power of Christian Women Entrepreneurs who are stepping into their braveness in life and in business.

To train, empower, and inspire Christian women as they build their business.

We do this in three ways: connect, create, and collaborate.

We connect through the private forum, tele-classes, webinars, live events, and virtual events.

We create through the power of idea sharing, resources, and vision.

We collaborate by working with each other, creating joint ventures, sharing referrals, and walking side by side.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I volunteer?

Yes! Learn more about volunteer opportunities by contacting Diane at info@nacwe.org. We have a Conference Planning Team, and we work together to create excellence and a fun-filled event. We would love for you to consider joining us if this is an area that you love!

What should I wear?

Business casual. Room temperatures may vary; I would advise dressing in layers for comfort. You never know...we might break out the paints again!

What should I bring?

Bring a positive mental attitude. Be willing to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Freedom in your business is found OUTSIDE of your comfort zone when you take bold steps! This is what it means to be a trailblazer and a woman on fire!

Make sure you also bring:

  • Plenty of business
  • Your favorite pens and pencils
  • Your laptop or other writing device

Can I use a ticket with someone else’s name on it?

No. You will need your own ticket. Tickets are reserved and seats are limited.

Can I transfer my ticket?

Yes! You are able to transfer your registration on a case-by-case basis if for some reason you are unable to attend. All changes need to be made by April 1st to be guaranteed an updated nametag.

Will meals or snacks be provided at the conference?

We’ll have a complimentary lunch, snacks, and water to satisfy your palate. Dinner will be at your expense. We will have appetizers at our Thursday night meet and greet reception for you!

Here's What Some of Our Members Have to Say

"The relationships I had created online through the NACWE group took on a new dimension when I met my sisters face-to-face at the NACWE conference. The NACWE conference was one of the first things I put on my 2017 calendar. We are called to be light in the world. At the NACWE conference, I learned the power of multiplication. Together as NACWE members the impact of our gifting is multiplied. Connections are made. Laughter shared. Prayers answered."
