The cares and concerns of life used to weigh on us. We used to feel chained to circumstances. But not anymore. When we found God we found freedom. He took away everything that held us back from becoming the women we were created to be. We. Are. Free. There is no better place to celebrate our freedom than Chosen. Chosen is a powerful two-day women’s conference dedicated to equipping and empowering women of all ages to walk in the freedom God has given us. It’s a time for women from all over the country to come together and discover the incredible things God wants to do through us to make an impact in our lives and our generations.
Jess Connolly is passionate about communicating about Jesus. Whether that's through writing, speaking, or having a coffee date, she loves spurring other women on and wants to leave her generation more in awe of God than she found it. She's one of the co-founders of SheReadsTruth, the co-owner of All Good Things Collective, and the co-founder of The Influence Conference and Network. She lives in Charleston, South Carolina where she and her husband have planted Gospel Community Church.
Lisa Harper has been lauded as a gifted communicator, whose writing and speaking overflow with colorful pop culture references that connect the dots between the Bible era and modern life. Her vocational resume includes six years as the director of Focus on the Family’s national women’s ministry where she created the popular Renewing the Heart conferences, followed by six years as the women’s ministry director at a large church in Nashville. She’s published eleven books including A Perfect Mess: Why You Don’t Have To Worry About Being Good Enough For God and her latest, Believing Jesus: Are You Willing To Risk Everything?
Andi was born and raised in Spokane, Washington, and in 2002, she met, fell in love with, and married her husband Paul in Sydney, Australia. In 2010, her family packed up and moved to NYC to establish Liberty Church, now a growing church with multiple communities in the city. Andi is a 'juggler' like most of us are: wife, mother, pastor, leader, learner, daughter, sister, friend, human being trying to work things out on the journey. Paul and Andi currently reside in Brooklyn, New York with their now four children, Ezekiel (Zeke), Jesse, Finley, and Samuel.

Will there be childcare available?
While families are extremely important to us, there will not be childcare available during the conference. We understand that the Charleston County schools will be closed to students on Friday, October 20th. Please make proper arrangements for childcare at that time. We do encourage attendees to share childcare costs with other attendees to minimize out of pocket costs.
Do I have to register now or can I register at the door?
We anticipate reaching capacity prior to the conference. Knowing that, we recommend you register early as we may not be able to offer same-day registrations.
I am not a member of Seacoast. May I still attend?
Absolutely! We encourage everyone who wants to grow their faith attend Chosen. Not only do we want you to come, but we hope you'll bring friends.
Can I transfer my registration to another person?
Yes! Please email your name, the name of the person taking your registration and their email address to email@example.com. Please note that we are unable to give refunds but will help you transfer your registration as best we can.
We are traveling from out of town for the conference. Where should we stay?
Please visit the lodging section to learn more about suggested hotels and discounted rates for conference attendees.
Are scholarships available?
We want to make sure that every woman who wants to attend Chosen is able to. That’s why we offer scholarships for those who might not be able to afford tickets themselves. Our ability to do this depends on the generosity of others – we hope that everyone who is able would consider making a donation to help provide a scholarship for someone else. For more information on how to apply for a scholarship or make a donation, please Click Here .
Is parking available at the venue?
Yes, we have parking on-site. However, due to construction, our parking will be limited this year, so we recommend organizing a car pool with friends.
When and where do I pick up my registration packet?
Your registration packet and conference materials will be available for pick-up the day of the conference as early as 5pm. You will need to check-in at the Seacoast Mount Pleasant campus to receive your materials.
Will there be workshops at Chosen this year?
Yes, there will be optional workshops throughout the conference. We will run each workshop twice so you will be able to attend several. This year, the workshops will be held in the Chapel, Warehouse and the Worship Center which will allow more people to attend each.
*Optional workshops are available during the afternoon break and are first-come, first served.
Will food be available?
On Thursday evening, there will be snacks at the After Party. Food trucks will be on-site to sell lunch during the Friday lunch break, and the Seacoast Cafe will be open throughout the conference to purchase beverages and snacks.
Will resources be available for purchase at the conference?
Yes, there will be an option to download some of the main sessions. There will also be Chosen merchandise available at the Seacoast Bookstore. You can also visit the Seacoast Bookstore in the month of September to purchase your Chosen merchandise before the conference!
Is Wi-Fi available at the Seacoast Church campus?
Yes, free public Wi-Fi is available throughout the campus.
