About Joy Schneider:

Joy2Joy is one of our AWSA resident experts on spiritual warfare.   Not only is Joy our AWSA prayer captain, she has been at the forefront of our popular conference Friday morning time of warfare prayer.

Here’s what Joy has to say about warfare of women in ministry, “We often become aware that we are experiencing spiritual warfare but are ill-prepared to know what to do about it. We do not realize that many of the stresses we encounter are actually the pressures that come with the wrestling that the Apostle Paul describes in Ephesians 6:12., ‘For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.'”

Joy explains, “We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. Therefore, He has given us what we need to overcome.”

More about the Warfare Class:  

The four classes will cover subjects that include:

1. Overcoming fear and gaining confidence in your spiritual identity in Jesus Christ. This class will

explain the segment of spiritual wickedness in high places and what is our weaponry of choice.

2. The enemy operates by darkness. This segment will explain tactics used by the rulers of the

darkness of this world. What the Lord has given us to stand strong and confident is really quite

simple. You’ll see.

3. Are you tired of being bullied by the enemy? You are equipped for this battle against the

authority or powers segment. You will see what you get to use to push back with confidence.

4. Get your lawyer hat out and see what you have to stand in your legal rights in the spirit realm.

This segment will discuss principalities. You will be amazed at what neutralizes the enemy.

Identifying

 

BONUS:  You will receive (by mail) a copy of Joy’s book:

Identifying the Hierarchy of Satan: A Handbook for Wrestling to Win!

 

COST of CLASS:  $30.00  (Includes copy of book.)

Note:  For AWSA Members Only.  Limited seating.  Please sign up before the classes closes.  When ordering the class, please include your MAILING (snail mail) address so we can drop a copy of the book in the mail to you.

  2. Your mastermind facilitator will ask you and other attendees four questions:
  • What are you working on?
  • What did you learn since we last met?
  • What do you need help with?
  • How can we pray for you?

AWSA Mastermind Group Members

(You will be amazed what you will learn as well as the bonds you will create!)

3.  Your meetings will last about an hour and a half.

These groups will not only build community, they will give you a jump start in the help you’ve longed for and the prayer you’ve wished for.  Best of all, we will limit each group to 5 to 10 people so everyone can be heard.

Cost: $14.99 a month.
