Worship Leader, Irish Elk Music

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 four children, now live in Windsor, CO where Ella is loving motherhood as well as writing and recording for her King.


Orphan Advocate, Compassion International

Compassion International speaker Olive Aneno was born and raised in Northern Uganda during troubled times. At six years of age, she was forced out of her home and by age nine she found herself orphaned. By God’s saving grace, Olive overcame adversity and ultimately earned a scholarship to South Carolina State University where she graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work. She went on to earn her Master’s in Social Work from the University of Georgia, and is currently pursuing a second Master's degree in Public Health. Olive is a gifted speaker often called on to speak about advocacy, grace, forgiveness, poverty, and the plight of vulnerable children around the world. Olive is highly respected and sought after in her field, having received multiple awards, scholarships and merits for her work. She and her son, Felix, live in Athens, Georgia.
