Women of Praise 2019

Founder - Pastor Julie Oyebobola

The Women of Praise Award is held in order to give individuals the opportunity to celebrate, appreciate and award any woman in their life that has been a blessing to them, whether it be mother, friend, wife, pastor, or a pastor's wife, to show appreciation to that lady who has made a great impact in their life; by presenting them with an award and expressing in public their words of love to that special woman.

One of the greatest feeling in life is receiving appreciation for your efforts and this night enables that special lady to experience that awesome feeling. Its a night of fun, entertainment and a delicious 3 course meal in a peaceful and joyous atmosphere.
