[April 17, 2013]  Lincoln Christian University's annual Christian Women's Conference will be on April 24 in the Earl Hargrove Chapel Auditorium on campus. Featured guest Nicole Johnson will be joined by Lincoln Christian Seminary Dean Dinelle Frankland in the daylong event. Women from across central Illinois will be blessed by the messages of these two women of the faith.

Nicole Johnson is one of the most sought-after creative communicators in America today. Her ability to blend humor with compassion enables her to capture the innermost feelings of women facing life's daily struggles. She has addressed more than 3 million women and toured with Women of Faith for 11 years, which included her "Fresh Brewed Life" message that gives "hope for the daily grind" to women dealing with issues from motherhood, to the tragedy of cancer, to being a woman in today's society who seeks to be a valued daughter of the living God. Johnson has 20 years of experience as an actress, television host and producer, and has published seven books.

Dr. Dinelle Frankland is a popular speaker and musician and serves as professor of worship and academic dean at Lincoln Christian Seminary.

She is a native of Albion and holds a bachelor's degree in sacred music, a master's in music and a doctorate in worship studies. She has served Lincoln Christian University since 2003 and developed a graduate degree program in worship studies that provides worship leadership for churches today. She also teaches regularly at TCM International, a graduate seminary near Vienna, Austria. She is the author of "His Story, Our Response: What the Bible Says About Worship."

Over the years, this annual conference has earned an excellent reputation as an opportunity for Christian women in central Illinois to be blessed and refreshed.
