ST. LOUIS, Sept. 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- Joyce Meyer Ministries will host its 28th annual women's conference on September 16-18, 2010 at the Edward Jones Dome in downtown St. Louis. Reflecting its steadfast commitment to the City of St. Louis and metro-region, this year's conference also marks the debut of its new event name, the "Love Life" convention.

In an atmosphere of celebration, bonding and sisterhood, since its inception, the event has consistently been a time of refreshing, encouragement and fellowship for women everywhere and this year's gathering promises more of the same. "Love Life" Women's Convention 2010 will focus on four (4) practical teaching topics -- mind, mouth, moods and attitudes -- to help women dramatically improve their life, pursue their dreams without fear and live in the fullness of their potential.

"It's been 28 years and we're as excited as ever to be home in St. Louis with our annual women's convention," said Joyce Meyer. "We have a great time every year and I can't emphasize enough how much we're looking forward to doing so again. I encourage ladies everywhere -- especially in the St. Louis area, to join us as we come together as one to celebrate the spirit of sisterhood."

Joining Joyce Meyer as guest speakers will be renowned leadership expert John Maxwell and noted psychologist/brain expert Dr. Caroline Leaf. Music will be provided by acclaimed worship leader Darlene Zschech and the Hillsong Australia Band, along with special guests Natalie Grant and Fuzed Worship.

The new name, "Love Life," reflects the ministry's long-standing message to simply enjoy everyday life. As in years past, ladies from all walks of life will meet in downtown St. Louis to not only celebrate the bond of sisterhood, but to also benefit from practical, yet outstanding teaching intended to positively impact their lives, while enjoying worship with some of music's most celebrated Christian artists.

"The ultimate goal is to leave the convention with a lighter load and a bigger smile ready to embrace the possibilities that come from a renewed awareness of how to love life," said Meyer.

Consistently one of the largest annual conventions in St. Louis, over 16,000 women from around the world are expected to attend. A welcome boon to the region's hospitality community and local economy, area businesses and merchants representing dozens of restaurants, shops, attractions and hotels will benefit from millions of dollars spent by attendees. Over 4,000 hotel rooms have been blocked for the event.

Five (5) dynamic teaching sessions will take place over the event's three days -- Thursday, 9/16 at 7 pm, Friday, 9/17 at 10 am and 7 pm, and Saturday, 9/18 at 10 am and 2 pm. A number of surprises and special activities are also planned. Registration is required for all attendees. Advance registration is closed; however, on-site registration is available during the event.
