January 16-17, 2018 – Princeton, NJ
May 8-9, 2018 – Princeton, NJ


Many women are disconnected from their voices – not their metaphorical Voices, but their physical voices. Join a small group of women to practice using your voice as the full-body instrument that it is. Led by Dr. Nancy Lammers Gross, participants will engage in breathing exercises and vocal work. This two-day workshop is designed for novices and experienced Christian preachers to come to terms with their bodies and learn to convey confidence and conviction.
