“BraveHearts [previous name of Oregon Teen Girls Conference] was important to me because it was the first event I had ever gone to with other teenagers. I saw everyone just worshiping together and praying for each other and it really amazed me. I had never seen so many people my age in a room that were so in love with Jesus. I realized I wanted what they had and I had never wanted to have a relationship with God in a way like that before. The worship was powerful and it was strange and exciting to be singing with so many people my age and I think it really helped ignite my passion for worship ministry. I realized I wanted to lead people in an atmosphere like that as well and since then I’ve been working towards that and led worship many times. That was all because of one weekend 4 years ago at BraveHearts.” ~ Laney (name changed)
Tanya (name changed) went to BraveHearts struggling with her self-esteem and anxiety. During worship she felt drawn to the altar in a powerful way. She was able to lay all her cares down at her Savior’s feet. The speaker, Latisha Burley, had the girls tie a string around their wrist as a reminder of what God had shown them that weekend. Tanya wore her string for months. It was a great visual to remember God’s personal touch in her life.
