ARISE 2019


APRIL 4-7 2019




ARISE is an annual women's conference hosted by World Revival Church in Kansas City, MO. Each year women come together from all across the world to gather together in unity to grow themselves with God in becoming victorious, overcoming challenges, increase in inspiration, faith and power!

This year we are featuring Special Guest Speaker Sheila Walsh, author of "It's Okay Not To Be Okay". Sheila Walsh is the Scottish girl who loves to teach God’s Word to the over 6 million women she’s met and spoken to around the world. She loves making the Bible practical, and sharing her own story of how God met her when she was at her lowest point and lifted her up again. Her message:  GOD IS FOR YOU! Sheila also enjoys being an author—in fact she likes to write everyday—and has sold more than five million books.  Her newest book just released in 2018 – IT’S OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY,  MOVING FORWARD ONE DAY AT A TIME .  She is also the co-host of the television program Life Today, airing in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia with over 300 million viewers daily. Sheila  loves to support missions work through the Life Today ministry, working worldwide. She most recently traveled to Africa, the Dominican Republic, and Southeast Asia. Calling Texas home, Sheila lives in Dallas with her husband, Barry; her son, Christian; and two little dogs—Tink and Maggie. For more information on Sheila visit her website:

We have also invited in the very talented Catherine Mullins - song writer and worship leader, longs to see the Bride of Christ to come forth in purity, holiness, and set apart for the glory of God. Inspired by that she will see and be a part of a generation desperately crying out to be unashamed and in reckless pursuit of simply knowing and loving Jesus. In the last year Catherine has recorded two albums, Captured: Live Worship from Lakeland, FL which was recorded when she was invited as a guest worship leader for The Florida Outpouring. Her second album, released earlier this year (2009), Cry of the Bride, features original worship written by Catherine. Since the Fall of 2008 Catherine has been traveling extensively releasing her heart for prophetic worship and for the Body of Christ to come into a deep revelation of the Love of God and grounded in their identity as Sons and Daughters. While at home Catherine leads worship at Coweta Community Church in Newnan, GA. For more information on Catherine visit her website;

The event will also feature our annual host, Pastor Kathy Gray of World Revival Church and many other women to share their own stories & lessons of being Restored and learning to Rejoice again!
