Chaos and comparison—girls’ lives are full of it. With each passing day and every social media post, like or comment, girls are tempted to be pulled away by worldly attractions. We are challenging these teens and tweens to not only be bold in their relationship with Christ, but also to accept the challenge To Get Her.

This challenge is for young girls to chase after their friends, their family and their peers to get them to live, love, shine and stand out! But most importantly, we want them to develop a relationship with Christ.

This conference is designed To Get Her …. be all that God created her to be. 

This dynamic conference is filled with impactful messages, motivational speakers, college information, workshops, live entertainment, food and fun! We want your teen or tween To Get Her friends and gather Together for this weekend of life-changing experiences.

We have a wide range of topics planned for the 2019 conference!

Focus Topics/Breakout Sessions:

  • Body Image and Self-Love/Confidence,
  • Mental Health,
  • Being Bold in Christ,
  • Relationships,
  • Battling Temptation,
  • And more!

toGetHer to


Through inspiring sessions, workshops and worship, we want toGetHer to be all God has called her to be and to chase after friends to get them to develop a relationship with Christ!

Guest Speaker –
Kemba Smith Pradia

After growing up as an only child in Richmond, Va., Kemba Smith graduated high school and continued her education at the prestigious Hampton University. While there, she experienced a nightmare that led to a 24.5-year sentence in a federal prison.

Kemba has been a college student, domestic violence survivor, federal prisoner, mother, public speaker, advocate, and author. 

She shares her traumatic real-life experience in her book, “Poster Child: The Kemba
Smith Story.”
Kemba believes in sharing her story as an educational tool to alert people about what is happening in our country’s criminal justice system, and hopefully to impact policy. Ultimately, Kemba knows that there is a lesson in each experience in life, and she has embraced her experience, learned from it and is now using that experience to teach others.
