Flourish Women’s Ministry began in February 2015 at Faith Family Church in North Canton, Ohio as a gathering for women of all ages and backgrounds within the community. Hosted by Pastor Barb Cameneti and the Flourish Team, we gather three times a year.

Our winter and summer Flourish Gatherings are free of charge, and you do not need to register to attend.

Jillian and her husband, Josh, are the Faith Family Church Fairlawn Campus Pastors and oversee Love is Red Conference, a youth and young adult conference that’s held at Faith Family Church in North Canton, Ohio every year. Jillian is passionate about writing and about empowering and seeing women live an abundant life in Jesus. She desires to help women realize that Jesus can and will redeem, restore, and rebuild everything beautiful in its time. In her free time Jillian loves spending time with her husband, her two blue-eyed boys, Jude and Weston, reading, and drinking plenty of iced coffee!

She is a powerful and prophetic Bible teacher who is passionate about gathering, equipping, and unleashing women to live out God’s calling on their lives.

Our fall Flourish Conference is a ticketed event and does require a paid ticket.

At our Flourish Gatherings and Conference, there’s always a time of worship, a message specifically for women, a time for community building, and of course, fun!

We would love for you to gather with us.

our values

These are the behaviors that we, as a church community, desire to be true of us. Beyond what we say about ourselves, we strive to have these be what others would say about us.

WE ARE FAMILY

We are not interested in simply being a crowd of people on Sunday mornings.  We want to build deep, authentic connection and always make room for more to join.

WE are bridge builders

The Gospel is good new that tears down walls and builds bridges. A spirituality that intentionally bridges racial, cultural, economic and gender barriers is God’s plan for everyone.

we are thoroughly authentic

If we live with integrity nothing else matters.

We are radically generous

We truly believe it is more blessed to give than to receive.

we are thremostats not thermometers

We set a tone of faith and expectancy in the places we go, not simply respond to the climate around us.

we are pursuing spiritual and emotional health

We know that emotional health and spiritual maturity cannot be separated. It is impossible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature.

WE ARE CONTRIBUTORS NOT CONSUMERS

The church does not exist just for us. We are the church and we exist for the world.

WE ARE ALWAYS BRINGING OUR BEST

Excellence honors God and inspires people.

WE ARE MULTIPLIERS NOT MAINTAINERS

We never arrive. We continue you to learn, continue to grow, continue to be transformed.

WE ARE GRATEFUL

We are people of gratitude and thankfulness. We reject an entitlement mentality, instead choosing to praise God for what we have.

praxis kids

At each of our weekend services we will offer Praxis Kids services for children up to 5th grade. We will create a safe environment for children to learn the truths of the Bible and have fun worshiping Jesus.

clean

We have the highest standard when it comes to clean environments for your children.

safe

We obtain background checks on every team member. We have a secure check-in and check-out process, we strictly enforce a minimum two-adult rule in every room, and we have a security officer present at our campus.

fun

We want our Praxis Kids to grow spiritually, understanding that being a Christian is one of the most exciting parts of life! Our goal is to make Sunday your childʼs favorite day of the week.
