Keynote Speakers

Jennifer Barrick


Jennifer Barrick suffered a traumatic brain injury and was not expected to live through the night. But God miraculously intervened. Now at age 24, God has given Jennifer a new personality and a new platform to share Christ.


Linda Barrick, author of Miracle for Jen, is an inspirational speaker with a captivating message of hope.  Linda leads a weekly Bible study of over 550 women at Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, VA, where she lives with her husband Andy of 27 years and their two children Jennifer and Joshua.  Their lives were dramatically changed 9 years ago when a drunk driver struck their family van head on, nearly killing them all.

Joy for the Journey

Linda and Jen, a mother-daughter team, will make you laugh and cry as they share their journey of hope, healing and forgiveness. Discover how to tap into the power of the Holy Spirit and overflow with joy in the midst of hardship.

Beauty Marks

Some of your scars may be visible, while others are hidden deep in your heart. God can redeem everything that the Enemy has tried to steal from you and use you in greater ways than you could ever imagine. He wants to transform the wounded places of your heart into Beauty Marks of purpose.

Breakout Sessions

Finding Your Identity in Christ
Jessica Daniel

It’s so easy to believe the lies of the enemy and doubt our worth to God. Come discover- or rediscover- how Jehovah-Jirah loves us like no other.

Dolly Mink

There are unexpected blessings when we forgive with limitless grace. This is only possible though the power of the Holy Spirit and the mercy of Rachum ve-chanum. Let’s help each other in this process.

Great Expectations
Leslie Honig and Dee Hoagland

Often the stress of expectations lead to huge disappointments. It is during these trying seasons that we can call on Shophet Tsaddiq to guide and comfort us.

Finding Strength During Perseverance
Donna Paulk

Unexpected trials require much more than we can handle alone. Discover ways Elohim provides the strength to persevere.

Healing through the Power of Jehovah Rapha
Maxine Porcher

Sadly, unexpected health issues occur frequently. In a world telling us myriad ways to find healing, Jehovah Rapha is the one true Healer.

Freedom in Christ
Casey Weymouth

Unexpected pitfalls, detours, and habits are just some of the chains that keep us from realizing the freedom offered through a relationship with Christ. Seeking Jehovah Shammah and the boundless freedom He offers can bring about a glorious change for yourself and others.

Catherine Jones

When faced with unexpected situations it’s sometime hard to find what is really true. Turn to the only real Truth there is: I AM.

Finding Peace Amid the Trauma
Lexi Judy

This life is filled with unexpected shock, trauma, and grief. Discover how Jehovah Shalom can bring peace and comfort to you during the most difficult times.

Unexpected Loneliness
Katie Stutler

Why do we feel lonely? The first mention of El Roi, The God Who Sees Me, may not be what you expect. It is key in our understanding of why loneliness is devastating to our hearts. In our time together, we’ll unpack the tools Paul used that enabled him to overcome this difficulty.
