You made us for much more than this
Awake the kingdom seed in us
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ…

Build Your Kingdom Here

BLOOM! invites you to put the world behind for twenty-four hours and come away to Awake...and Dream.  It's time to shake off the slumber, to awaken and refresh our spirits, to seek God and worship Him. Come away to savor the peace of a beautiful Kansas autumn day and the fellowship of like-minded sisters.  Come away to awaken your senses to hear God's voice sweetly whispering His love song to you.  Come away to give yourself time to dream.

Worship led by Melissa Morales
     Melissa began worship ministry at the age of 14.  She has ministered in several churches across the country, and served with Youth With a Mission in Nashville, Tennessee, ministering as well in Latin America and Southeast Asia.  She currently lives in Johnson County with her husband of 16 years, Robby, and their four children. 

Conference Speaker: Tonya McGhee
     Tonya McGhee was raised in a small town and dreamed of a life of magic and meaning.  A sometime actress, poet, singer, and songwriter, she settled down to raise a family and make a home.  Years later, she has found that life of meaning in the most unexpected a daughter of the Most High King!  Now she is on an epic quest...searching for truth, love, and kindred spirits while battling the fierce foes of fear, worry, and regret.  She has been freed from the spell of the Enemy, and her duty now is to share the keys of the Kingdom with others.

Come set Your rule and reign
In our hearts again
Increase in us we pray
Unveil why we're made
Come set our hearts ablaze with hope
Like wildfire in our very souls
Holy Spirit come invade us now
We are Your Church
We need Your power
In us
