Beth Moore Equips the Next Generation at LIT

By Kelly Russell, March 16, 2017

The heartbeat behind LIT—a one-day event in February hosted by Beth Moore for women in their 20s and 30s called to teach, speak or write—was a powerful one: “Whatever is mine to give is yours to have if you want it.”

Moore announced the event on her Living Proof Ministries blog in November last year, sharing that the passion for it welled up in her as she wrote a five-week Bible study on 2 Timothy called “Entrusted.” Throughout the writing, Moore—who has three decades of ministry experience—says she wished she had extra time with young women who felt led to minister in her own areas of gifting. LIT was born.

Online registration for LIT opened three months prior to the event and was sold out within six minutes. “We were slack-jawed,” recalls Jenn Hamm, Houston event coordinator at Living Proof Ministries. “We had no idea the response would be that overwhelming.” The immense response led them to relocate the event to a larger venue.

As the planners scurried to prepare for the event, the participants had their own homework. Moore required attendees to purchase and complete an “Entrusted” workbook and present it at the door along with their ticket. She explained her reasoning for this requirement in her blog: “First, space is limited and I want to ensure that those who come are serious… I’d rather have 100 with fire in their bones than 500 who are simply curious,” she wrote. “Secondly and most importantly, making ‘Entrusted’ a prerequisite means that we can come together on the same page and launch straight to the next level.”
