Pioneer is a yearly conference formed by the women's ministry at Mercy City Church. Mercy City Church hosts a Friday night event called "Sisterhood" in which women from all around Lincoln gather for the purpose of building relationships and worshiping Jesus. We believe that it is a desire of every woman to build a community. This is what Pioneer is all about. It is about linking arms and joining together to move forward in this faith-filled life.
We have some excited surprises planned and we are believing that this year’s conference will be a significant time of life change for all ladies who attend. From the messages, to the worship, to the times of community and relationship building, we are expecting God to move in big ways. So, no matter where you find yourself or the hand that life has dealt you, YOU are invited to join us!
This year's speakers include:
