What We Do

Wellspring Women's Conference Worship

Worship at the 2008 Wellspring Women's Conference in Black Mountain, NC


Wellspring Women’s Conference at Black Mountain, NC

At it’s core, this annual conference is about women coming together for worship, fellowship, and discipleship.  It takes place in the mountains of North Carolina every fall, usually in October or late September, at Lifeway Ridgecrest Conference Center in Black Mountain, near Asheville.  Gloria Cotten is the speaker for the general sessions while other women lead a variety of workshops during the day on Saturday.  Women from all churches and walks of life are invited.

Wellspring Regional Events

In 2010, we will be having three regional events instead of a single conference.  Our regional events will be in Kernersville, NC, Southern Pines, NC and Emporia, VA.

We at Wellspring desire to help local churches, especially in the area of women’s ministry.  We are available to help you train leaders, help you formulate a year-long plan for your ministry, put together Bible studies and cell groups, etc.  Our board of directors also delights in helping other churches and women’s groups put on their own conferences.  We will be glad to help wherever we are needed: help with conference planning and administration, help with speakers and workshop leaders, help with promotional materials, to mention a few areas. Contact us to find out more.


“In the Beginning” is a book written by Gloria Cotten out of her own personal quest to discover what it means to be a Godly Christian woman.  The book explores themes such as being created in God’s image, Eve’s decision to disobey God in the garden and the ramifications of that sin, what the Bible means by “the weaker vessel”, feminism vs. femininity, gender conflict in our society, and many other insightful, relevant topics.
