It is our core belief that there exists only one God, creator and sustainer of all things. The ultimate goal of our spirituality workshops is to help women move to personal wholeness, interpersonal competence, mental stability and spiritual maturity.

One of the biggest issues women face in taking their next career step is finding the right people in their network who will help them accelerate. EPIC offers workshops for young professionals, entrepreneurs, creators, and influencers to help gain invaluable insights to achieving their goals.

Lifestyle focused workshops help women to prioritize in order to get the results they desire out of life. You’ll have the opportunity to find the spark of passion you’ll need to succeed in your personal lives, motherhood, and relationships.


The Vision​​

We envision a world in which all women regardless of race, ethnicity, income level, or social status, are nurtured and empowered to reach their fullest potential.

This Is Going To Be EPIC!

As women of faith, it is important to identify and steward the unique purpose God has created us for. The EPIC Women’s Conference is more than an event; it’s an experience that will push you toward purpose and passion through prayer, sisterhood, and strategy! This two-day event will be held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center. The conference will feature keynote speakers, workshops, and a vendor exhibit. This year, we are excited to offer workshops in Spanish. Spanish-speaking attendees will be provided headsets for the main sessions, and we will have workshops that are in Spanish only. As God evolves this conference, we pray that more and more women will have access to this life-changing event. We will laugh until our stomachs hurt, shed a few tears, and leave behind burdens not needed for our next season. It will be a pivotal time for all who attend.

EPIC 2024 will be held in Rochester, New York on August 9th and 10th. Learn more about the conference here.

How We Do What We Do…

The conference targets women who want to grow spiritually, mentally, and professionally. Our workshops are designed for women at various stages of transition in their lives. We aim to promote intentionality while equipping women with concrete strategies to reach their next level. If you feel stuck or desire inspiration, the EPIC Women’s Conference is for you!

All workshops have an element of Christian faith that serves as the foundation of the strategies shared by our presenters. Workshops fall into three categories: Spirituality, Professional Development, and Lifestyle. Some workshops will cover multiple categories. Additionally, we offer workshops for Spanish-only speakers. Workshops focus on Esteem, Passion, Inspiration, and Courage, helping attendees become EPIC Women. This WHOLE LIFE conference focuses on the WHOLE WOMAN and every aspect of her life. Her relationship with Christ, her friends and family, and herself.

EPIC Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our attendees had to say:

My wick was trimmed and re-lit. To be in a room full of women all there for one purpose, THE FATHER! Amazing, so necessary and life changing.



I think it goes without saying just how amazing the EPIC Women's Conference 2023 was. I left there so encouraged to do every single thing God had already placed on my heart to do.



Let me first say I was not supposed to be in the room! BUT GOD has a way of placing you right where you need to be. From the workshops to the many cultivated connections, I am GRATEFUL!



Once the conference started, we entered into a room of praise & worship! When I tell you, the worship leader did just that!!! I haven't experienced this feeling in a very, very long time! 



Overall, I’m leaving the conference feeling alive, rejuvenated, inspired, chosen, and blessed. I enjoyed the praise and worship. To sum it up with one word, EPIC!!!



EPIC 2023 was LIFE CHANGING YET AGAIN! I literally stepped into words previously spoken over my life!



I can’t even explain all the experiences I had at EPIC 2023. I’m still so full. I have so much to share. I can say it was just for me. The Father met me right where I was at and wrecked me. I didn’t want to leave.



I woke up today, and everything around me was the same, but I AM DIFFERENT! I am on fire for Jesus. The way I walk into a room is different. EPIC 2023 was such a blessing.



The EPIC Women's Conference was fire! Women were healed and released from the things that had kept them bound. Friendships were made, and God's glory was ever present!




We Can’t Wait to See You in Rochester, NY, August 2024!

Conference Host & Visionary

Dr. LaShunda Leslie-Smith

From a

Mother at age 14 to a CEO
by age 34…

LaShunda is no stranger to adversity and hard work. When she was a little girl, she dreamed of becoming a pediatrician or entrepreneur. Instead, when LaShunda was little more than a baby herself, she gave birth to her first child, a son. At that point, LaShunda could have become nothing more than a statistic. However, LaShunda is a dreamer and a doer. She became the first in her family to graduate college and earn a master’s degree and a doctorate. She accomplished all this while raising her son — and later her daughter — with her husband of now 25 years. LaShunda has formally and informally mentored, counseled, and advised hundreds of women throughout her career, personal life, and ministry. She felt a strong prompting from the Lord to take what she has learned, through trial and error, and package it into what is now the EPIC Women’s Conference. The first conference was launched in September 2018. To her surprise, it was a sold-out event, women’s lives were changed, and God was glorified. The success of the EPIC Women’s Conference was followed by the creation of Women, Worship, & the Word, a worship experience that allowed women to grow in their knowledge of Christ and take the next step to live out their purpose. LaShunda is a highly sought-after motivational speaker and workshop presenter. LaShunda has been nominated and selected as the recipient of numerous awards and accolades. She is a TEDx Speaker, author, and social entrepreneur.
