exchanging apathy for passion

Have you longed for something more in your relationship with Jesus Christ? In this powerful session, Leslie exhorts us to leave mediocrity and compromise behind; to become fully, wholly, completely Christ's; to love Him radically - not merely with your words, but with your entire heart, soul, mind and strength. If you are dissatisfied with just going through the motions of Christianity and long to become passionately devoted to the true King, this message can ignite your spiritual fire and change your relationship with Christ from dull to vibrant.


exchanging doubt for certainty

Do you ever struggle with doubt and disillusionment toward God? Have you wrestled with questions like "Why would God allow this to happen?" or "Are God's promises really true?" In this session, Leslie show us how to plant our feet firmly upon the solid, immovable Rock, which is Jesus Christ Himself. If you will learn to take Him at His Word, He is willing to replace your confusion and doubt for the glorious clarity and confidence you long for. This message will help you exchange feelings-based Christianity for immovable, rock-solid, faith that cannot be shaken.


exchanging temporal distractions for true satisfaction

How many of our moments are being spent on things that matter in light of eternity? In this session, Leslie teaches us how to trade trivial time-wasters for Christ-centered living, and demonstrates that only when we are willing to give God the best hours of our day-rather than whatever is left after we have wasted most of our time on temporal, earthly distractions -will we experience vibrant intimacy with our heavenly King and become the set-apart women He has called us to be.


exchanging selfish pursuits for sacrificial love

Heroic Femininity - exchanging selfish pursuits for sacrificial love There are cries of anguish resounding all over the world - from the starving child to the Christian being tortured for his faith. May we not drown them out with our movies, social lives, and career pursuits. In this session, Leslie reminds us that God is asking each of us to turn down the "noise" in our lives and learn to give the way He gave, holding nothing back, and shows us what it looks like practically to build a lifestyle of sacrificial love.

During this informal Q and A, Leslie will offer Biblical and practical insights for your touch questions on what it means to be a setapart woman for Christ in today's world. Come ready with your questions or send them to our team ahead of time!


with the setapartgirl team

Have you ever wondered how to relate to guys in a way that pleases God? Whether you are wondering how to build a friendship with a guy, how to handle attraction towards a guy, or how to motivate the men in your life toward God's standard for Christcentered masculinity, this inspiring and practical session from the Set Apart Girl team will help answer those questions!


with eric ludy

This message brushes against some of the most controversial ideas of the Bible, but surprisingly, as it approaches the socially insensitive and forbidden topic of the "role of women," instead of creating spiritual indigestion, it paints a picture of ravishing beauty. Listen to this message at your own risk, for you may be converted to being a believer that the Bible, the whole Bible, and every word in the Bible, is good, right, and perfect. And what it produces in the lives of those that have ears to hear it and obey it, is also good, right, and perfect.


with annie wesche

Sweltering heat, power outages, no running water, heartbreaking poverty, viruses and disease, rats, bats, and spiders—it can be easy to fixate with fear on the challenges that await you in a third world country, but in this session, Annie passionately shares her own stories of how trusting upon the promises and power of God brought laughter, joy, rescues, miracles, strength, and a deeper intimacy with Christ in the midst of trials and hardship. Your faith will be strengthened as you listen to Annie candidly share about what happened when her own fears and discomforts met with the promise “Faithful is He who calls you who also will do it.”


with brooke parks

Christian persecution is making the news headlines, often painting a dark picture. But in this session Voice of the Martyrs speaker Brooke Parks will show how God is using suffering and persecution to grow His church worldwide. She will share powerful testimonies of believers from restricted and hostile nations who have had overcoming faith in the midst of great persecution. This session will present an inspiring and challenging message about what it means to count the cost, take up our cross and follow Jesus, regardless of if we were born into a restricted or a free nation.
