Keynote Speakers

Tara-Leigh Cobble

  • Her earliest memory is learning John 3:16 from her mom, shortly before her brother led her to Christ on a Saturday night while playing board games.
  • She started D-Group (Discipleship Group) with a handful of college students in 2009 and it has grown into 250+ groups around the world. "What I've learned has motivated me to encourage others to pursue relational knowledge of God, because I've found that He is where the joy is!"
  • Tara-Leigh loves to speak to audiences about God and His Word, and she's written a few books with an aim to point others toward Him through her story as well as their own.
  • She writes and hosts a daily podcast called The Bible Recap, which aims to keep people connected to reading the Bible when they're tempted to quit for lack of understanding, as well as a daily radio show called The God Shot.

Margaret Feinberg

Nika Spaulding

  • Nika Spaulding is a proud graduate of both the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor’s in Zoology and Dallas Theological Seminary with a Master’s of Theology. After several years as a Women’s Minister in North Dallas, God gave her the privilege of planting a church in Oak Cliff called St Jude Oak Cliff. She loves her new role as the Resident Theologian. When she’s not cheering on her Sooners, playing with her cat Clive, or enjoying a good meal with her friends, she’s probably sneaking off to Oklahoma to snuggle with her favorite humans: her nieces and nephew. You can find Nika’s musings on her podcast called God on Tap or find her messages on the St Jude Oak Cliff website.

Rebecca Carrell

  • In order of importance, Rebecca Ashbrook Carrell is a joyful Jesus follower, a wife to Mike, mother to Caitlyn and Nick, author, conference speaker, and morning radio co-host on 90.9 KCBI.
  • She has authored two books: Holy Jellybeans: Finding God Through Everyday Things and Holy Hiking Boots: When God Makes the Ordinary Extraordinary. She also co-hosts the Honest Conversations Podcast with Liz Rodriguez, where they look at tough topics through a biblical lens.
  • Rebecca lives in Flower Mound, TX, serves as a member of Rock Pointe Church, and is currently working toward her Master’s in Theology at Dallas Theological Seminary. To find out more about Rebecca visit RebeccaCarrell.com.

Liz Rodriguez

  • Liz, otherwise known as “Liz Rod on the Pod” from the Honest Conversations podcast, is a Dallas girl living in Lancaster, Pa. There she serves as the Director of Women's Ministry at Calvary Church. 
  • Liz spends her days helping women take their next step in their walk with Christ. Her afternoons writing and her evenings with friends challenging the definition of community to something much deeper. If you need her, she is most likely exploring through grand adventures or watching a dancing show! You can find out more about Liz at www.lizann.life.

Worship: The Seen Band

  • Kristen Brewer, with the help of the Seen Worship Band, is thrilled to share her latest work. 'Seen: He is the God Who Sees You.' It is her most personal - and she believes - her most relevant yet. As she explored women throughout the Bible and their stories she wondered what they must have felt and thought at key moments in their stories. The Lord chose these flawed, beautiful, forgiven women to be his family. He chooses us too. 
  • Kristen currently lives in Lancaster, PA with her husband, Ben, and two little boys. She is busy working as a full-time writer and director for Sight and Sound Theaters. She is also a freelance writer and continues to sing, act, write, and direct for theaters around the country. Kristen is thankful to the Lord for all of the gifts He has given. She intends to proclaim His heart to the world through them.
