Join us August 3 & 4 for ”Hear Me Roar!”, a conference for women. We all have a voice, and for the women of God, like the roar of a lioness, our voice is far reaching and earth shaking. This conference will empower you to walk in your identity, discover your gifts, teach you how to use your gifts to impact the church and the world, overcome your history of silence, and make a mark on your Kingdom area of influence.

We will accomplish this through insightful teachings, intimate worship, and our Saturday afternoon workshops: The Art of Being Made Whole & Calling (more workshops to be announced).

We will also have some “me time” for women to unwind and enjoy being pampered.


When Abi was 12 years old she prayed, “If you can teach me how to love myself, I will change the world." This simple prayer ignited her adventure of uncovering the power of love. Throughout her journey she has seen love conquer the fear and torment that once seemed impossible to overcome. She and her husband, Justin (her favorite human), run a life consulting business where they meet with clients and have trained a team to do the same. Abi is a regular speaker at Bethel Church and School of Ministry in Redding, California. She travels the world speaking and teaching others how to encounter unconditional love and live fully alive.

For Lynn, there is no greater joy than to watch people being drawn into relationship with Jesus by the love of our heavenly Father and then being filled with the Holy Spirit to live passionately for Jesus.  Lynn is a Senior Associate Pastor here at Gateway and ministers with the authority, passion, and power that comes from living in loving submission to the Father.  She is a daughter, a wife, a mother, and a grandmother, and she has been a woman in ministry for over 30 years.  Lynn has practical experience in helping women discover how the Voice of the Lord in them can be heard in the church and the market place.

This is a modified SOZO session using color. SOZO is the greek word for “Being Made Whole”: Saved, Healed, and Delivered. This encounter with the Godhead is a safe & gentle place to allow a cleansing and healing work to be done that will have a life changing effect. Expect hidden creativity to be released as you discover healing through art! No artistic talent needed.  

Facilitator: Patty Little & Holly Pommer

Patty Little & Holly Pommer are both gifted teachers who serve on the Gateway Women’s Advisory Board. They are also members of Gateway’s SOZO team which is going into its 7th year of partnering with the Godhead to bring healing and wholeness to the individual’s, Spirit, Soul & Body. They completed the training given by Bethel on Art SOZO which is a tool that helps people connect to the heart of God through art.

My Art SOZO was so life changing.  On my last piece God totally surprised me by revealing Himself in such an astounding way that brought me to the place of humility, child likeness, and adoration for Jesus…like falling in love with Him for the 1st time…I’ve found my 1st LOVE.
— Patty Little

As ladies we get so busy and prioritize so many others before ourselves. We forget that we are "beautifully and wonderfully made in His image and after His likeness" and worthy of taking some "me" time. During the conference, we want to provide a corner where we get to love uniquely on you and your wonderful femininity through the giving of a basic manicure, along with some prayer and encouragement. This will happen 1-hour before the start of each session. Space is limited, so sign up for your time in the Pamper Corner soon.

Facilitator: Pastor Caroline Eldridge & Team

As Pastor of Kid’s Ministry at Gateway, Caroline is not only in charge of helping children develop real and lasting relationship with Jesus, she also leads an amazing team, many of whom are women, who help her in this endeavor.   She sees and hears first hand how little “me time” many women make for themselves.  It is her privilege to lead the team that will bless these ladies with a short time of pampering.

Registration begins July 23  (free - limited seating)
