Meet Rebecca. . .
HOW MANY YEARS SHE’S ATTENDED SHE RISES CONFERENCE: 6
3 WORDS TO DESCRIBE CONFERENCE: Transformative, empowering, energizing.
WHY SHE KEEPS ATTENDING: God always speaks to me so clearly and deeply at conference. I don’t know if it’s because I attend conference with the expectation of hearing from the Holy Spirit or if the atmosphere of worship enables Him to speak more clearly, but I have left conference changed every year.
HER FAVORITE CONFERENCE MOMENT: I love the silly moments of nonsense Holly plans every year. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a bit ridiculous, so I enjoy mixing up the deep spirit transformations with some laughs!
WHAT SHE WOULD SAY TO SOMEONE CONSIDERING ATTENDING CONFERENCE: Invite everyone you know. My friendships and relationships have grown stronger with the people I invite to conference. Plus, life’s better with friends – conference is no different!
HER STORY: The first time I attended conference, I was coming out of the darkest season in my life. I felt like I had made too many mistakes for God to fix and conference was my last ditch attempt at turning things around. God showered his love on me more tangibly than I have ever felt before. After a year of following Jesus and understanding my value, I attended conference again. During worship, God spoke to me about His purpose for my life – to reach teenage girls who feel far from God and teach them about their value and purpose in Jesus Christ. I have served in the Youth Ministry for 6 years and don’t plan on stopping any time soon!
