What is the Well Conference?

The Well Conference is a time for women to come together to celebrate and increase our wellness.  We will hear from experts on physical, mental, financial, and spiritual wellness in a one day, high impact, intergenerational conference designed to be engaging, interactive, and meaningful.

Do I have to be a church person to attend?

Though the Well Conference is organized by members of and hosted by Zion Lutheran Church, the Well Conference is open to all women of all faiths!  There will be morning worship offered, but if you want to start your time at the conference with the keynote speaker, that is absolutely fine.  Our goal is to have takeaways that are holistic, universal, and diverse!

How much does it cost?

What about COVID-19 protocols?

We want to prioritize the health and wellness of our guests always.  We will be updating registrants as the conference approaches.  Currently, we are encouraging unvaccinated participants to wear masks in the building, providing tons of hand sanitizer, and giving plenty of space for physical distancing.  We reserve the right to update these guidelines based on local and federal guidelines.  These updates may necessitate an online experience or refund.
