Heritage Keepers, a womens counter-part to Promise Keepers, held
its first conference in Wichita, in 1996. Since then, seven conferences have been
held in Wichita, Oklahoma City, Denver, and Indianapolis. Last August over 12,000 women
attended the conference in Indianapolis.
This movement of God was co-founded by Lori and Bob Beckler, a former
Pastor and his wife, of Wichita, Ks. When asked the question how this got started, Lori
replied, "God began to move in both Bobs and my life in ways that we never
expected. We knew this was not an original idea, but God had put it on our hearts to begin
a conference for women. Over 2,000 women showed up at our first conference. Since then, we
have seen the mighty hand of God at work in the lives of His people. Both Bob and I are
very humbled to be used by our Lord."
Heritage Keepers is a family ministry. Our children, parents, aunts,
uncles, sisters, brothers, cousins and several friends assist us with the conference.
"What a warm feeling it is, to see the entire family serving the Lord!" said
Heritage Keepers is based on Psalm 78: 4-7. "We all know the
responsibility we have in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with our family.
Thats a responsibility we take very serious." Replied Bob. Our theme for the
1999 conference is, "
so the next generation will know." We want to be able
to provide conferences where women will be equipped with the tools they need to grow in
their relationship with God and with family.
This years speakers include, Carol Kent, Dr. RoseAnne Coleman, Dee
Brestin, Marge Caldwell, Sierra, Sandi Patty and special guest, Billy Grahams
youngest daughter Ruth Graham-McIntire.
The 1999 conference in Indianapolis, will be held June 26, at the
