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.

Standing Boldly with Jesus in Such a Time as This — Leslie Ludy

he times in which we live are growing darker and darker. The pressure to subside into silence and become sheepish about our faith is growing by the day. But when the Apostle Paul found himself in a similar circumstance, completely surrounded by evil, God told him, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent, for I am with you…” (Acts 18:9-10). The same God who commissioned Paul to stand boldly for truth in those harrowing circumstances is urging us to do the same in the times in which we live. Even more exciting, the God who was with Paul back then is the very same God who is with us today. In this session, you will be inspired to rise above cultural pressure and live a life that boldly declares, “I’m with Jesus!”


Overcoming Shame:

Experiencing Freedom Through the Power of the Cross — Leslie Ludy

Many of us are hindered from fully living in the present by our past mistakes and regrets. Trendy self-help messages give us plenty of worldly advice on how to become bold and unashamed of who we are. But true freedom and lasting confidence can only come through the One who took our sin and shame upon Himself. This hope-filled session will equip you with biblical and practical tools to gain victory over shame and freedom from your past — not through self-esteem or self-expression, but through Jesus Christ and Him Crucified.

Christ-Honoring Friendships:

Standing with Jesus in our Daily Relationships — Leslie Ludy

Jesus is the truest, most trustworthy, most faithful, most perfect Friend we could ever have. Human comfort and human wisdom will inevitably fall short. But His love never will. There is no problem He cannot solve; no need that He cannot meet. No matter what other friendships or relationships may come into our life, He is the only One who will never fail us. This powerful and practical session will help you protect your relationship with Christ above all else, honor Him in your daily relationships, and become a truly Christ-centered friend.

A Journey Into Orphan Work:

Gaining God’s Heart for the Vulnerable — Annie Wesche, with Eric and Leslie Ludy

As Christians, we have been given the privilege of pouring out our lives for others, just as Christ did for us. This life is not about us. We are called to be living sacrifices for our King. As it says in Ephesians 2:10, “We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” In this powerful session, Annie Wesche will share how God led her to reach out to vulnerable children one step at a time — battling through feelings of inadequacy and venturing far outside of her comfort zone. It’s a story of God’s amazing faithfulness and the joy of embracing a poured out life — one step of obedience at a time. You’ll be inspired and challenged to become Christ’s hands and feet to a lost and dying world.

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.”
