May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Rom 15:13
What do you do when a tornado hits your life that devastates all that you hold dear? What happens when that means the death of a child, a loss of health, a failed marriage, a failed business or a partner that sues you? Or, perhaps you were a victim of someone else’s abuse and hatred. What happens when you have little faith to hang onto? How do you respond? How do you cope with life? Let’s face it. Life is not always fair. You CAN do all the right things and life still doesn’t turn out right.
The Bible character of Joseph provides some insight into a pattern of adversity that can often feel cruel from a God that we are told is love. And yet, God used the adversity for a purpose that we are still talking about in our churches and daily life to this very day, thousands of years later. Our own adversity can challenge our belief in God and the teaching that He loves us and has a good plan for our life.
Joseph Calling in Business and Family
This conference will address what The Joseph Calling looks like in business and in the family. There are unique challenges when a crisis happens in our lives. These usually affect both our working lives and our family lives. We will be helping address issues that affect both of these key areas.
The Joseph Calling Conference is for those who are seeking to find answers. It’s for those who need comfort, healing, renewed faith, hope and purpose. It will allow you to rub shoulders with others who are in similar life experiences, or have been there and come through it successfully. Hearing from those who have been through the same storms in life that you have can be an invaluable resource during your time of need.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 2 Cor 1:3-4
That is why we are having a Joseph Calling conference. It is for the modern-day “Josephs”. You see, we have discovered there is actually a “Joseph Calling” that speaks of a person who has been earmarked by God to frame their lives through the adversity they experience in life. Like Joseph, they are spiritual and physical providers to others. Their lives have been framed by the very adversity they have experienced.
The Joseph Calling conference will help to equip you to turn your adversities into something that will be used for good to help others. In this conference, you will hear from those who have experienced the worst of the worst and have come out the other side to proclaim, “Yes, there is a God who cares and hears.” We’re going to help you discover that for yourself and encourage you, no matter where you are in the process. Come join us.

These organizations are designed to empower women who are dealing with life’s challenges, coming out of difficult circumstances by providing them with the tools necessary to equip and achieve financial independence, personal growth, family restoration & leadership, and a spiritual foundation through a curriculum of continuous education.
Their goal is to help the whole woman to live a Christ-centered life that builds confidence and dependence in God. Pamela was sexually abused from age 5 to 9 by three different men, which caused her unbearable pain. She learned that drugs could numb that pain. Her dependence on drugs to numb the pain grew worse and worse, which led her to prison for 18 months. She could relate to some of the same horrific experiences that many women in prison & outside have suffered. She realized her “Josephine” calling while there.
At age 26 she surrendered all to Jesus, after trying to commit suicide. After becoming a Christian she still could not shake her drug dependency, even though she had such a relentless desire to change. She realized she had to find out what was causing her to go back to this insidious addiction even though she had such a desire to stay clean. She discovered she had to change her old mind-set and face some core issues and traumas that had engraved her behavior, in order to bring about lasting change. Studying psychology, self-help and recovery books did not provide the complete answer. She then discovered that only through memorizing the Word of God, and being led by the Holy Spirit, could the healing process begin. Pamela has even forgiven those who have tied her up, choked her, raped her, beat her, and even shot at her through experiencing the lasting change of true deliverance that comes through the same program that she has developed. Pamela was recently married to Os Hillman on May 7, 2016.Pamela Hillman
