Worship Leader, Irish Elk Media

Ella Powell is a singer and songwriter who was born and raised in southern Finland. At the age of 10 she became a popular child singer, and eventually began longing and training for a successful secular music career in the USA. God, however, had other plans. At the age of 23 she had a powerful encounter with Jesus Christ, who lovingly led her away from a life of seeking her own glory, and into a life of deeply desiring to share the love and glory of her Savior through her musical gifts. Ella has been writing and singing Christ-focused music ever since. She and her Australian husband Matt, along with their five children, now live in Windsor, CO where Ella is loving motherhood as well as writing and recording for her King.

True Happiness

How to Find What Everyone Else is Searching For

What is the secret to lasting happiness? Finding the perfect relationship? Gaining applause and popularity? Having material possessions? Achieving a lifelong dream? Despite what we often believe, enduring happiness can’t be in fulfilling our earthly desires. True happiness can only be found when Jesus Christ becomes our chief desire. In this inspiring and uplifting session, Leslie shares biblical keys to finding true contentment in Christ and gaining a soul-level happiness that can never be taken away.


True Beauty

How to Shine with Heavenly Radiance at any Age

What makes a woman truly beautiful? Our culture often tells us that the more we are seen, noticed, and appreciated, the better our lives will be. But Jesus has an entirely different secret for feminine beauty — getting out of the way so that His radiance can shine through our lives. In this practical and encouraging session, Leslie offers biblical advice for overcoming insecurity about your physical appearance, exposing cultural lies about feminine beauty, and cultivating the kind of lasting heavenly loveliness that will impact this world for eternity.

True Honor

How to Glorify Christ in Your Daily and Digital Conduct

Have you ever wondered how to be set-apart on social media? This session is for you! Digital communication can be a great tool for reaching out to people, but it can also present some of the biggest pitfalls to our spiritual lives. Facebook gossip, digital flirting, selfies, texting, online dating, and letting social media consume all of our time — these are just a few of the tricky areas we must navigate as set apart women. In this candid, biblically-rich session, Leslie presents key principles for building a digital code of conduct and honoring Jesus Christ with every word or image that we post, pin, text, or tweet.

The Joy of Giving

The Ludy’s and Special Guest Compassion International

Here is a little-known secret for overcoming depression and finding true joy … sacrificial love. In this powerful session, Eric and Leslie share how God has continued to challenge them out of their comfort zone and embrace a poured-out life — and special guests from Compassion International share amazing real-life stories of how God is working through His Body to eternally impact vulnerable children around the world. (Have some Kleenex handy!)

True Joy

How to Have a Heavenly Perspective in any Circumstance

Are you facing challenges in your family? At work? At school? In your friendships? In your health? In your marriage? It can seem nearly impossible to have joy in the midst disappointments and difficulties. But God has given us amazing tools for joyful living — no matter what challenges we face. In this life-transforming session, Eric and Leslie candidly share some of the most difficult trials they have walked through and the spiritual truths that have equipped them to triumph through hard times through the enabling power of Christ.

Church at Ellerslie Live Stream (sermon with Eric Ludy)

I can truly say the Conference was life-changing for me. Having just finished two grueling college semesters, I felt so tired and needy spiritually. I sat in the audience and just wept as I took in the rich teaching and sensed the powerful presence of God there. The Conference has been a huge turning point for me spiritually. I have grown so much closer to God and I have rededicated my life to Him. God dealt with a lot in my life in those two days and even more so as I came home.


“This was my second Set Apart Conference and coming back has reminded me of what true Christianity is and why we need to stand for it in this modern age and culture. As the world becomes progressively darker with sin and godless living, true Christians need to stand up and preach the Gospel now more than ever! Leslie reminded me that living a Christ-centered life means giving UP my life and my goals in order to accomplish God’s will and bring more glory to Him.”


“My daughter and I have attended 3 Set Apart Conferences now. They have been inspiring and life-changing for both of us. This past one was especially meaningful for my daughter. Two days after the Conference she moved to Honduras to help at an orphanage and to teach second grade at a near by school. The encouragement and biblical teaching she received has helped her to press on with the task God has given her to do.”
