GENERAL SESSIONS COME AWAY

Forsaking Worldly Pursuits to Follow Our Beloved With Leslie Ludy In today’s world we are constantly baited to spend our best hours on worldly, shallow pastimes. Many of us spend far more time on social media or on selfish personal pursuits than we do at the feet of Jesus. But God’s Word says that “in His presence is fullness of joy” and “at His right hand are pleasures forevermore.” (Psalm 16:11) This message presents an amazing opportunity to “come away” from worldly and unfulfilling time wasters, helps us exchange spiritual apathy for passionate devotion to Christ, and offers practical ways to build our daily lives around intimacy with the King of all kings.

INCORRUPTIBLE BEAUTY Cultivating Christ-like Femininity With Leslie Ludy

Feminine beauty has been redefined and warped by our culture. Sensuality, pop-culture preoccupations, and selfish pursuits have become the new normal for modern young women. But God’s pattern for radiant, Christ-like femininity is completely other than the sensual and destructive womanhood of today’s world. This message presents a beautiful and refreshing picture of what Christ-like femininity really means, and offers Biblical principles for cultivating this incorruptible beauty in every aspect of your life.

ROADBLOCKS TO INTIMACY With Joanna Weaver

Do you long for a deeper relationship with Christ, but struggle with feeling distant from Him? In this powerful message, Joanna Weaver shares some of the most common roadblocks in our lives that hinder intimacy with Christ and offers practical ways to overcome them, helping you draw closer to Christ than ever before.

OVERCOMING FEAR

Exchanging Anxiety for Unwavering Faith With Leslie Ludy Fear quickly destroys our faith, paralyzes our spiritual growth, and hinders our intimacy with Christ. As women, we are often persuaded that being fearful is “normal” or even “wise”, but the Bible calls us to banish fear from our souls completely. This message exposes fear for what it is, and offers practical, Biblical Truth that helps us exchange fear for triumphant faith in our God and become strong and courageous in Christ.


PRACTICAL SET-APARTNESS Building a Christ-Honoring Lifestyle With Leslie Ludy

The Bible says that everything in our daily lives, small or big, should be done for the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10:1) Every decision we make is important in the sight of God. At each moment of the day, we must choose between glorifying God or coddling self. This message brings our daily habits and choices under the loving searchlight of God’s Spirit, and offers practical insights for honoring Christ in relationships, dress, friendships, family dynamics, decision-making, thoughts, words, and life pursuits.

THE POWER TO FORGIVE

Freedom from Bitterness and Resentment With Eric Ludy Is there someone in your life that you are struggling to forgive? The Bible says that if we harbor unforgiveness and bitterness in our hearts, it will put a wall between us and God, and hinder our intimacy with Christ. But when we have been deeply hurt, abused, wronged, mistreated, lied to, or disappointed by another human, true forgiveness can seem almost impossible. This message will introduce you to the secret of true forgiveness - it’s a God-imparted ability to let go of offenses and to forgive as Christ Jesus Himself forgave. This power is not found in human grit, willpower, resolve, and determination. It’s found only in Jesus Christ. He and He alone can turn our bitterness into love and set us free from the bondage of unforgivness and resentment.

BonusSessions:

SET-APART GIRL LEADERSHIP

Discipling Today’s Young Women with Leslie Ludy Join Leslie as she shares practical, Biblical principles for reaching today’s young women with the message of Christ-centered femininity. Whether you are a parent, a leader, or a young woman who is wanting to impact her friends for Christ, this session can equip you to become effective in ministering life-transforming truth to today’s teens and young women.

GOD-SCRIPTED LOVE STORIES Testimonies from the Set-Apart Girl Team

Join us for this encouraging and inspiring message as three members of our set-apart girl team share their own God-written love stories, answer questions, and offer Biblical principles for building a romantic relationship upon God’s patterns and not the world’s.

SET-APART GIRL TEAM, SPEAKERS The Set Apart Girl team is a group of faithful, like-minded young women who faithfully serve this ministry through design, photography, administrative help, editorial work, and writing contributions. We have witnessed their lives as they walk unreservedly for Jesus, with a passion to see Christ-centered femininity alive in this generation. They are living examples of radiant, godly femininity and we know you’ll be inspired and encouraged by their testimonies.

ELLA POWELL, WORSHIP LEADER 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 two young daughters and baby son, now live in Windsor, CO, where Ella is loving motherhood as well as writing and recording for her King.

WHAT GIRLS AROUND THE WORLD ARE SAYING ABOUT THEIR EVENTS LAST YEAR!

MARILI SAYS: I would like to thank you on behalf of the ladies that attended

our simulcast in Edenvale, South Africa. I was just reminded again during our conference weekend that God is sovereign and worthy of our whole lives. We had about sixty ladies come to our church... I know that many of the ladies were deeply impacted by the messages. Personally this was really rewarding spiritually. Although I have been acquainted with the Set Apart Girl ministry for a few years, it was encouraging just to reaffirm what I already know to be true... With such strong testimonies one can only be encouraged to give more of yourself to Christ in pouring out to others!

BETHANY SAYS: When my friend, Melissa, told me about the conference I

said right away that I would go. I was excited because I needed a breakthrough and hoped this might be it. But at the same time, I was terrified because I knew a breakthrough could mean reliving the pain of the past. God was so gracious to me though. I did get my breakthrough, but instead of feeling all of that pain again, He just took it away. I sat at the foot of the cross that weekend and He lifted so many weights off of my shoulders. I came away feeling so happy and free. Renewed. Since surrendering those things to Him, He has just been showing Himself to me in small ways and in crazy-blow-you-away kind of ways!... I don’t think I can really pull out one thing or one session as my favorite, because everyone who spoke touched my life deeply. There were so many nuggets of truth in every session. So many basic truths, yet so life changing.
