Baylor University's George W. Truett Theological Seminary and the Baptist General Convention of Texas will host "Sacred Voices," the sixth annual Women in Ministry Conference, on Monday, March 5, at the seminary on the Baylor campus.

Plenary speaker Julie Pennington-Russell, pastor of First Baptist Church in Decatur, Ga., will explore the conference theme and the variety of ways in which the divine voice is mediated to the world during the conference's general sessions at 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday in Paul Powell Chapel of Truett Seminary.

Pennington-Russell joined Decatur First Baptist in August 2007. She previously served as pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Waco and Nineteenth Avenue Baptist Church in San Francisco. She earned her bachelor's degree from the University of Central Florida in Orlando, and her master of divinity degree from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in Mill Valley, Calif.

Sacred Voices also will include panel discussions and breakouts designed with three audiences in mind - those who are sensing a call to ministry, women serving in vocational ministries and ministers, men and other lay leaders who seek to learn how to be an encouraging voice for women in ministry. Participants also will take part in networking lunch, where they will be able to join a facilitated discussion about particular areas of ministry, including youth and student ministry, pastoral ministry and church staff ministry.

Registration is $15 for students and $20 for the public.

Truett Seminary is at 1100 S. Third St.
