Her name is Alex Seeley. She has an accent that’s not quite Southern, but it is from down under. Waaaay down under as in Australia. So how did a gal from Melbourne, Australia get to Tennessee? It’s a God thang. It would have to be. Yada is blessed beyond measure to have this pastor from the other side
of the world be our guest speaker for the last Yada event of 2017.
Alex brings a passion when teaching the word of God that will have you leaning in and listening with every fiber of your being. Following the call of God, she and her husband with family in tow, left her native land and started one of Nashville’s fastest growing churches in the heart of the south - The Belonging. Alex says her mission in life is to help people discover who they are in Christ and the freedom that can only be found in Him. We hope you will ink in the date. It’s going to be awesome (with a slight accent)!
Our worship guest will be a Yada newbie as well…..Gina Squyres. She leads worship at Love & Truth Church here in Jackson. She feels honored that the Lord has called her to be part of His plan to help people get set freed to be who God has called them to be. What a great way to end our 2017 Yada year! Hope you will join us.

Reservations (for 6 or more at a table):
Q. Can I bring my older children to Yada?
A. Yada is a ministry FOR WOMEN. We love children and provide a free nursery for 10 and under, but YADA is a "Ladies' Night Out" and it's for women 18+ and older. We thank you for respecting the age boundaries.
Q. Who is the Yada Prayer Ministry for? I've heard it mentioned several times at the Yada meetings.
A. It's for YOU! While we know that all of us have many people on our prayer lists - the prayer team was set up specifically for prayer request about YOU. You can request prayer for yourself by filling out a prayer card on your table at a Yada night or send a request at yadasisterhood.com anytime.
Q. Is it required that you bring a dish to Yada?
A. Required - NO. Helpful - YES! Our motto is Bring a Dish, Bring a Friend. Our meal is provided by our attendees bringing a dish to share with others. We serve one of the largest buffets around and it's delicious. If however, you are in a situation and unable to bring a dish, we understand. We still want you to come. But for those who can…. Please bring a dish (throwaway containers are acceptable).
Q. Do you HAVE to have a reservation to attend Yada? It seems like most do.
A. NO, absolutely not. However, over time many women have gathered groups of friends to come with them. Sometimes it's hard to walk in and find seats for 6 or 8 together so we allow groups of 6 or more to reserve tables for Yada events. We also always keep unreserved tables for women who do not come in groups. We have a team of "helpers" at the doors to assist everyone in finding a place to sit.
Q. Does it cost to come to Yada?
A. No, it does not. However, we do take donations. Yada is free to every woman who walks through the doors, but it costs quite a bit to put on the events. There is no paid staff. We're a Donations-based Ministry. We appreciate any love offerings! Donate here: http://www.yadasisterhood.com/donate.html
