She Rises Conference gathers women of all ages and backgrounds and from all over the world. The gathering started as GodChicks and has grown from a mere handful to thousands who come together to be inspired, to learn, to worship, to laugh, throw confetti…eat chocolate and drink coffee ☺. We meet in the iconic Dolby Theatre, where the Academy Awards are held, and we are here for a reason. In a city where so much pornography is produced and where women are often valued based on appearance, we wanted to host a conference that restores dignity to the daughters and inspires a desire to truly be a force on the earth for good. We wanted to reclaim some ground. Join us for 24 hours as we hear great messages, as we worship God, as our hearts and lives are healed, and new friendships are made. Be a part of the family…it really won’t be the same without you.
