Extreme Makeover Boutique Conference (EMBC), is an outreach designed to bring peace, perspective and purpose to today's busy woman. Essentially a day of fun, food and fellowship; the EMBC desires that women everywhere enjoy authentic fellowship, tackle real life issues in a relaxed atmosphere and are able to let their hair down. It is an opportunity for women to be pampered physically and spiritually.
EMBC hopes to inspire women to celebrate what could be the most exciting stage of their lives and is open to women from all walks of life from the ages of 21 years and above. Past EMBCs have had participants with age range from 20 to 68 years young!
