Main Stage Speakers

E2024 is designed to engage, empower and equip women clergy, emphasizing the distinction of leading as Wesleyan-Holiness women. In Acts 2:17 “‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” Our theme for E2024 is Your Daughters Will Prophesy and we have an amazing lineup of mainstage speakers who are gifted and anointed women clergy who preach the word with Spirit-filled power and authority.

All of the mainstage sessions will be available with Spanish translations and broadcast via livestream.
