  • - Bobbie Houston: For
  • 00:00:00.040 --> 00:00:03.040
  • 20 years we've been heralding
  • 00:00:03.040 --> 00:00:04.000
  • this message, that you and I
  • 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:05.140
  • are indeed daughters
  • 00:00:05.140 --> 00:00:06.150
  • of the Most High God.
  • 00:00:06.150 --> 00:00:08.020
  • Not ordinary, not nothing,
  • 00:00:08.020 --> 00:00:10.060
  • not forgotten,
  • 00:00:10.060 --> 00:00:11.050
  • but royal indeed.
  • 00:00:11.050 --> 00:00:14.030
  • We are surrounded
  • 00:00:14.030 --> 00:00:15.070
  • with the world,
  • 00:00:15.070 --> 00:00:16.080
  • searching frantically
  • 00:00:16.080 --> 00:00:17.170
  • for the mystery
  • 00:00:17.170 --> 00:00:18.120
  • and the meaning to life.
  • 00:00:18.120 --> 00:00:20.040
  • You're here because the Lord
  • 00:00:20.040 --> 00:00:21.110
  • Jesus Christ loves you.
  • 00:00:21.110 --> 00:00:23.130
  • You are here because he wants
  • 00:00:23.130 --> 00:00:24.210
  • to save you and rescue you.
  • 00:00:24.210 --> 00:00:26.250
  • And he wants to point you
  • 00:00:26.250 --> 00:00:28.020
  • - Joanne Ramos: Colour
  • 00:00:32.280 --> 00:00:33.210
  • coming to New York
  • 00:00:33.210 --> 00:00:34.180
  • and coming to the United States
  • 00:00:34.180 --> 00:00:36.010
  • - Ben Houston: I just get
  • 00:00:43.050 --> 00:00:44.050
  • so excited at the potential.
  • 00:00:44.050 --> 00:00:46.020
  • I understand that it's gonna
  • 00:00:46.020 --> 00:00:47.090
  • make such a big difference
  • 00:00:47.090 --> 00:00:49.080
  • to the women in this country.
  • 00:00:49.080 --> 00:00:50.250
  • - Lucille Houston: I feel like
  • 00:00:50.250 --> 00:00:51.220
  • everybody needs that message
  • 00:00:51.220 --> 00:00:52.180
  • that not only is there a God
  • 00:00:52.180 --> 00:00:54.050
  • in heaven who loves us and
  • 00:00:54.050 --> 00:00:56.220
  • believes in us and values us,
  • 00:00:56.220 --> 00:00:59.000
  • but also that he has
  • 00:00:59.000 --> 00:01:00.120
  • an amazing plan for our life.
  • 00:01:00.120 --> 00:01:02.040
  • That's a message that so many
  • 00:01:02.040 --> 00:01:04.090
  • women are yet to even hear
  • 00:01:04.090 --> 00:01:05.290
  • and get a revelation
  • 00:01:05.290 --> 00:01:06.290
  • of themselves.
  • 00:01:06.290 --> 00:01:08.000
  • And I think the girls
  • 00:01:08.000 --> 00:01:08.270
  • are gonna get it.
  • 00:01:08.270 --> 00:01:09.230
  • They're gonna lean in
  • 00:01:09.230 --> 00:01:10.200
  • and they're gonna jump on,
  • 00:01:10.200 --> 00:01:11.250
  • almost fast track
  • 00:01:11.250 --> 00:01:13.050
  • onto a journey that's been,
  • 00:01:13.050 --> 00:01:14.170
  • like, 20 years in the making.
  • 00:01:14.170 --> 00:01:17.160
  • - Elizabeth Walley: It's gonna
  • 00:01:17.160 --> 00:01:18.130
  • change the culture of our church
  • 00:01:18.130 --> 00:01:20.000
  • here in New York
  • 00:01:20.000 --> 00:01:21.000
  • and also the culture
  • 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:22.110
  • of American churches.
  • 00:01:22.110 --> 00:01:23.290
  • - Christine Caine: A very
  • 00:01:23.290 --> 00:01:24.270
  • large part of what
  • 00:01:24.270 --> 00:01:25.260
  • the Colour Sisterhood
  • 00:01:25.260 --> 00:01:26.250
  • is gonna help the church to do
  • 00:01:26.250 --> 00:01:27.230
  • is to go, "Wow, we have
  • 00:01:27.230 --> 00:01:29.040
  • this untapped resource
  • 00:01:29.040 --> 00:01:30.200
  • in the body,
  • 00:01:30.200 --> 00:01:31.230
  • and God wants to use women
  • 00:01:31.230 --> 00:01:33.080
  • to help them build the church
  • 00:01:33.080 --> 00:01:34.170
  • alongside men."
  • 00:01:34.170 --> 00:01:35.190
  • - Riis Lewis: If you're
  • 00:01:35.190 --> 00:01:36.150
  • a leader in church,
  • 00:01:36.150 --> 00:01:37.090
  • you understand that
  • 00:01:37.090 --> 00:01:38.040
  • when the women
  • 00:01:38.040 --> 00:01:39.010
  • are alive in your church,
  • 00:01:39.010 --> 00:01:39.270
  • that your church is different.
  • 00:01:39.270 --> 00:01:40.220
  • It's colorful.
  • 00:01:40.220 --> 00:01:41.190
  • It has a whole different aspect
  • 00:01:41.190 --> 00:01:43.130
  • of outreach.
  • 00:01:43.130 --> 00:01:44.250
  • - Carl Lentz: Women feel
  • 00:01:44.250 --> 00:01:45.220
  • like there's a place
  • 00:01:45.220 --> 00:01:46.220
  • for them here to lead, to serve,
  • 00:01:46.220 --> 00:01:48.080
  • to live, living empowered lives.
  • 00:01:48.080 --> 00:01:50.090
  • Not because of their job,
  • 00:01:50.090 --> 00:01:51.140
  • or because a man gave you
  • 00:01:51.140 --> 00:01:52.190
  • the right, or because
  • 00:01:52.190 --> 00:01:54.020
  • your denomination said so,
  • 00:01:54.020 --> 00:01:55.060
  • but because God's called you.
  • 00:01:55.060 --> 00:01:56.190
  • - Autumn Hardman: Personally, I
  • 00:01:56.190 --> 00:01:57.190
  • know what it's done for me
  • 00:01:57.190 --> 00:01:58.220
  • as a woman to just empower me
  • 00:01:58.220 --> 00:02:00.110
  • in my calling.
  • 00:02:00.110 --> 00:02:01.190
  • The fact that that's coming now
  • 00:02:01.190 --> 00:02:03.180
  • to New York, personally,
  • 00:02:03.180 --> 00:02:05.030
  • I find that so exciting
  • 00:02:05.030 --> 00:02:06.180
  • and think about
  • 00:02:06.180 --> 00:02:07.270
  • the individual stories that are
  • 00:02:07.270 --> 00:02:09.030
  • - Bobbie: God could've planted
  • 00:02:12.200 --> 00:02:13.160
  • us in any time frame.
  • 00:02:13.160 --> 00:02:15.110
  • So you are the right girl.
  • 00:02:15.110 --> 00:02:16.230
  • And you are in the right time.
  • 00:02:16.230 --> 00:02:18.170
  • So I want you to have confidence
  • 00:02:18.170 --> 00:02:20.020
  • that you are
  • 00:02:20.020 --> 00:02:21.040
  • and that God has called you,
  • 00:02:21.040 --> 00:02:22.100
  • and he's graced you,
  • 00:02:22.100 --> 00:02:23.210
  • and we are here
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:24.200

  • [cheering]
  • 00:02:40.190 --> 00:02:42.290
  • - Kane Keatinge: This is
  • 00:02:42.290 --> 00:02:43.180
  • the first time that we
  • 00:02:43.180 --> 00:02:44.210
  • as a church have ever done
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:46.140
  • a Colour Conference
  • 00:02:46.140 --> 00:02:47.090
  • here in the US.
  • 00:02:47.090 --> 00:02:48.090
  • a really big deal.
  • 00:02:50.110 --> 00:02:51.140

  • as we are unified together.
  • 00:02:57.070 --> 00:02:58.250
  • God, I pray that we are in unity
  • 00:02:58.250 --> 00:03:01.120
  • to share your love.
  • 00:03:01.120 --> 00:03:02.210
  • God, I pray every single
  • 00:03:02.210 --> 00:03:03.110
  • woman that walks

  • 00:03:04.100 --> 00:03:05.180

  • God, we love ya.
  • 00:03:07.270 --> 00:03:08.260
  • Let's get out and do work!
  • 00:03:15.020 --> 00:03:17.000
  • - Bobbie: The conference
  • 00:03:34.150 --> 00:03:35.090
  • is not an event.
  • 00:03:35.090 --> 00:03:36.020
  • It's not a show that goes
  • 00:03:36.020 --> 00:03:36.260
  • on the road with, you know,
  • 00:03:36.260 --> 00:03:38.100
  • a production house.
  • 00:03:38.100 --> 00:03:39.080
  • It actually isn't.
  • 00:03:39.080 --> 00:03:40.250
  • Although, right now
  • 00:03:40.250 --> 00:03:42.000
  • Because it's not that,
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:46.050
  • you need to actually host it
  • 00:03:46.050 --> 00:03:48.200
  • and carry it out
  • 00:03:48.200 --> 00:03:49.190
  • of a local church.
  • 00:03:49.190 --> 00:03:50.190
  • is 5 or 6 years old,
  • 00:03:52.210 --> 00:03:53.190
  • and we have the LA church now,
  • 00:03:53.190 --> 00:03:55.090
  • and in recent times, Phoenix,
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:03:57.050
  • and who knows where else,
  • 00:03:57.050 --> 00:03:58.160
  • you feel like you've got
  • 00:03:58.160 --> 00:03:59.200
  • the people base and the team
  • 00:03:59.200 --> 00:04:02.040
  • alongside to carry it.
  • 00:04:02.040 --> 00:04:03.070
  • Because that's actually
  • 00:04:03.070 --> 00:04:04.050
  • one of the miracles
  • 00:04:04.050 --> 00:04:05.030
  • of our conferences,
  • 00:04:05.030 --> 00:04:06.040
  • is the hundreds and hundreds
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:07.040
  • of volunteers behind the scene
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:08.110
  • who actually carry the message
  • 00:04:08.110 --> 00:04:10.080
  • and actually are the impact
  • 00:04:10.080 --> 00:04:12.030
  • for those who are observing.
  • 00:04:12.030 --> 00:04:13.090
  • And what does
  • 00:04:13.090 --> 00:04:14.090
  • that testimony tell us?
  • 00:04:14.090 --> 00:04:15.110
  • Actually testimony to a local
  • 00:04:15.110 --> 00:04:16.290
  • church and the power of what
  • 00:04:16.290 --> 00:04:18.130
  • local church can do when they're
  • 00:04:18.130 --> 00:04:19.240
  • - Tolu: Well, actually,
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:22.110
  • when I went to Colour Sydney
  • 00:04:22.110 --> 00:04:23.080
  • and finally saw
  • 00:04:23.080 --> 00:04:24.060
  • the first Colour last year,
  • 00:04:24.060 --> 00:04:25.070
  • and I, at first, I was
  • 00:04:25.070 --> 00:04:26.090
  • Like, I was just, like,
  • 00:04:28.110 --> 00:04:29.000
  • "How are we gonna do this?
  • 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:30.020
  • How are we gonna
  • 00:04:30.020 --> 00:04:31.010
  • make it happen?"
  • 00:04:31.010 --> 00:04:31.290
  • But you just see, like,
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:33.080
  • number one, we stand
  • 00:04:33.080 --> 00:04:34.070
  • on the shoulders
  • 00:04:34.070 --> 00:04:35.060
  • of the global team.
  • 00:04:35.060 --> 00:04:36.060
  • So, like, a lot of the team is
  • 00:04:36.060 --> 00:04:37.060
  • coming from all over the world
  • 00:04:37.060 --> 00:04:38.060
  • to help make this happen.
  • 00:04:38.060 --> 00:04:39.170
  • And then with our team,
  • 00:04:39.170 --> 00:04:40.190
  • they just always step up
  • 00:04:40.190 --> 00:04:41.270
  • to whatever bar.
  • 00:04:41.270 --> 00:04:43.050
  • So, like, every time
  • 00:04:43.050 --> 00:04:44.070
  • we have a conference,
  • 00:04:44.070 --> 00:04:45.080
  • I feel like it's just calling us
  • 00:04:45.080 --> 00:04:46.100
  • to another season.
  • 00:04:46.100 --> 00:04:47.080
  • And you just see it.
  • 00:04:47.080 --> 00:04:48.060
  • You see our church,
  • 00:04:48.060 --> 00:04:49.060
  • our teams, just kinda grow
  • 00:04:49.060 --> 00:04:50.040
  • and grow and grow and grow.
  • 00:04:50.040 --> 00:04:51.060
  • So it's like there's fear,
  • 00:04:51.060 --> 00:04:52.050
  • and then you go,
  • 00:04:52.050 --> 00:04:53.010
  • "We've got this.
  • 00:04:53.010 --> 00:04:53.260
  • We can do this."
  • 00:04:53.260 --> 00:04:54.250
  • And then here we are.
  • 00:04:54.250 --> 00:04:55.220
  • Like, here we are in the day,
  • 00:04:55.220 --> 00:04:56.170
  • and we're putting on
  • 00:04:56.170 --> 00:04:57.040
  • - Kwabena Abboa-Offei: So when
  • 00:04:59.060 --> 00:04:59.250
  • we put on an event like this,
  • 00:04:59.250 --> 00:05:00.210
  • one of the things
  • 00:05:00.210 --> 00:05:01.180
  • that you don't see is that
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:02.270
  • for months we are meeting,
  • 00:05:02.270 --> 00:05:05.090
  • preparing, drafting memos
  • 00:05:05.090 --> 00:05:06.250
  • about what's gonna happen.
  • 00:05:06.250 --> 00:05:08.070
  • - Chris Davenport: Rehearsing
  • 00:05:08.070 --> 00:05:09.040
  • dance and rehearsing
  • 00:05:09.040 --> 00:05:10.060
  • musical items.
  • 00:05:10.060 --> 00:05:11.060
  • - Kwabena: Redrafting
  • 00:05:11.060 --> 00:05:12.050
  • the memos.
  • 00:05:12.050 --> 00:05:13.030
  • - Chris: Editing media.
  • 00:05:13.030 --> 00:05:14.070
  • - Kwabena: Memorizing
  • 00:05:14.070 --> 00:05:15.030
  • the run sheets,
  • 00:05:15.030 --> 00:05:16.020
  • memorizing the play lists.
  • 00:05:16.020 --> 00:05:17.140
  • - Chris: Building costumes
  • 00:05:17.140 --> 00:05:18.190
  • and prepping props.
  • 00:05:18.190 --> 00:05:20.240
  • - Kwabena: All so that
  • 00:05:20.240 --> 00:05:21.260
  • 4.000 people can come in here
  • 00:05:21.260 --> 00:05:23.200
  • and experience Colour.
  • 00:05:23.200 --> 00:05:25.210
  • [music]
  • 00:05:30.110 --> 00:05:33.110
  • - Ioral La Rode: So our main
  • 00:05:33.110 --> 00:05:34.060
  • challenge is we don't own
  • 00:05:34.060 --> 00:05:35.040
  • a venue.
  • 00:05:35.040 --> 00:05:36.020
  • So this requires us
  • 00:05:36.020 --> 00:05:36.280
  • to be really creative
  • 00:05:36.280 --> 00:05:37.240
  • and just work really hard
  • 00:05:37.240 --> 00:05:38.270
  • at figuring out solutions.
  • 00:05:38.270 --> 00:05:40.130
  • - Cassandra Langton: We're
  • 00:05:40.130 --> 00:05:41.130
  • doing the "Fight Song."
  • 00:05:41.130 --> 00:05:42.100
  • It's part of the Sisterhood
  • 00:05:42.100 --> 00:05:43.030
  • moment, and it's, I guess,
  • 00:05:43.030 --> 00:05:44.010
  • an attempt to mobilize women
  • 00:05:44.010 --> 00:05:45.170
  • towards action and prayer.
  • 00:05:45.170 --> 00:05:47.220
  • And so we've come up
  • 00:05:47.220 --> 00:05:48.190
  • with this great item.
  • 00:05:48.190 --> 00:05:49.190
  • But it takes hundreds of girls
  • 00:05:49.190 --> 00:05:51.030
  • with big pink flags walking in
  • 00:05:51.030 --> 00:05:52.230
  • and dance and choreography.
  • 00:05:52.230 --> 00:05:54.230
  • And so coming up with a space
  • 00:05:54.230 --> 00:05:56.050
  • to rehearse in New York
  • 00:05:56.050 --> 00:05:56.290
  • Anyway, the guys rang,
  • 00:05:59.010 --> 00:06:00.050
  • I think, about 50 studios
  • 00:06:00.050 --> 00:06:01.040
  • trying to find a location
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:02.190
  • to rehearse in.
  • 00:06:02.190 --> 00:06:03.230
  • And kept getting, "No, no, no,
  • 00:06:03.230 --> 00:06:05.090
  • no, no."
  • 00:06:05.090 --> 00:06:06.160
  • And finally,
  • 00:06:06.160 --> 00:06:07.150
  • they found a studio.
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:08.140
  • They ring and go,
  • 00:06:08.140 --> 00:06:09.110
  • "We're wondering if you would
  • 00:06:09.110 --> 00:06:10.130
  • let us rent your studio.
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:11.090
  • We don't have much money,
  • 00:06:11.090 --> 00:06:12.150
  • but we're wondering
  • 00:06:12.150 --> 00:06:13.140
  • if we could borrow the space."
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:14.290
  • And they said, "Oh,
  • 00:06:14.290 --> 00:06:15.290
  • let us check with the manager
  • 00:06:15.290 --> 00:06:16.280
  • and we'll get back to you."
  • 00:06:16.280 --> 00:06:18.000
  • Anyway, when the manager
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:19.000
  • called back, she goes,
  • 00:06:19.000 --> 00:06:19.270
  • "Did you say you're
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:20.290
  • from Hillsong Church?"
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:21.230
  • And she goes, "Yeah,
  • 00:06:21.230 --> 00:06:22.200
  • we're from Hillsong Church."
  • 00:06:22.200 --> 00:06:23.170
  • She goes, "I'm actually
  • 00:06:23.170 --> 00:06:24.120
  • in that item.
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:25.190
  • And you can have our space,
  • 00:06:25.190 --> 00:06:27.010
  • and you can come and rehearse."
  • 00:06:27.010 --> 00:06:28.190
  • So I feel like you see
  • 00:06:28.190 --> 00:06:29.220
  • the kindness of God
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:30.260
  • and his ability to actually
  • 00:06:30.260 --> 00:06:31.290
  • help us execute what's
  • 00:06:31.290 --> 00:06:33.160
  • - Bobbie: When you create
  • 00:06:45.270 --> 00:06:47.000
  • an environment that believes
  • 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:47.280
  • in people,
  • 00:06:47.280 --> 00:06:49.000
  • it lifts the ceiling,
  • 00:06:49.000 --> 00:06:49.290
  • and then God does the rest.
  • 00:06:49.290 --> 00:06:51.000
  • So all we really have
  • 00:06:51.000 --> 00:06:52.070
  • to do as a church
  • 00:06:52.070 --> 00:06:53.150
  • is create the environment.
  • 00:06:53.150 --> 00:06:54.270
  • And you know what?
  • 00:06:54.270 --> 00:06:55.240
  • The rest is his job.
  • 00:06:55.240 --> 00:06:56.290
  • [laughing]
  • 00:06:56.290 --> 00:06:58.010
  • So it's awesome.
  • 00:06:58.010 --> 00:06:59.220
  • And in the meantime,
  • 00:06:59.220 --> 00:07:00.220
  • we work crazy, like crazy people
  • 00:07:00.220 --> 00:07:02.040
  • to make it beautiful.
  • 00:07:02.040 --> 00:07:03.190
  • 'Cause there's so many layers
  • 00:07:03.190 --> 00:07:04.170
  • to the conference.
  • 00:07:04.170 --> 00:07:05.200
  • But at the end of the day,
  • 00:07:05.200 --> 00:07:07.000
  • it's the Word of God
  • 00:07:07.000 --> 00:07:08.130
  • and it's worship
  • 00:07:08.130 --> 00:07:09.130
  • that changes and transforms.
  • 00:07:09.130 --> 00:07:11.030
  • And so that's the most important
  • 00:07:11.030 --> 00:07:12.060
  • thing that will happen
  • 00:07:12.060 --> 00:07:13.070
  • in that room, that people's eyes
  • 00:07:13.070 --> 00:07:15.050
  • will be turned to Jesus,
  • 00:07:15.050 --> 00:07:16.280
  • and that the Word of God
  • 00:07:16.280 --> 00:07:17.290
  • will go forth uncontained
  • 00:07:17.290 --> 00:07:19.140
  • and do what it needs to do.
  • 00:07:19.140 --> 00:07:22.030
  • [music]
  • 00:07:24.040 --> 00:07:27.040
  • - Helen Burns: I have been
  • 00:07:27.040 --> 00:07:28.050
  • to 19 Colours,
  • 00:07:28.050 --> 00:07:29.290
  • have loved them all.
  • 00:07:29.290 --> 00:07:31.060
  • - Joanne: Probably 8
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:32.040
  • or 9 years ago I went to Colour
  • 00:07:32.040 --> 00:07:33.030
  • for the first time.
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:34.000
  • - Hannah Burton: There was
  • 00:07:34.000 --> 00:07:34.290
  • this real hype around Colour.
  • 00:07:34.290 --> 00:07:35.280
  • And everyone was saying,
  • 00:07:35.280 --> 00:07:36.260
  • "You need to go.
  • 00:07:36.260 --> 00:07:37.240
  • You need to go."
  • 00:07:37.240 --> 00:07:38.200
  • And it looked a little bit
  • 00:07:38.200 --> 00:07:39.160
  • too girly for my liking.
  • 00:07:39.160 --> 00:07:40.260
  • - Autumn: I attended my
  • 00:07:40.260 --> 00:07:41.240
  • first Colour Conference going,
  • 00:07:41.240 --> 00:07:42.290
  • - Hannah: And then somebody
  • 00:07:45.010 --> 00:07:46.010
  • bought me a ticket to go,
  • 00:07:46.010 --> 00:07:47.170
  • so I was like,
  • 00:07:47.170 --> 00:07:48.190
  • "Now I have to go."
  • 00:07:48.190 --> 00:07:49.270
  • And I went and it just
  • 00:07:49.270 --> 00:07:51.050
  • was incredible.
  • 00:07:51.050 --> 00:07:52.120
  • - Joanne: God met me
  • 00:07:52.120 --> 00:07:53.100
  • in a supernatural way.
  • 00:07:53.100 --> 00:07:54.090
  • And I decided a year's not gonna
  • 00:07:54.090 --> 00:07:55.110
  • pass that I'm gonna be part
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:56.170
  • of what God is doing.
  • 00:07:56.170 --> 00:07:57.260
  • - Hannah: Just every time,
  • 00:07:57.260 --> 00:07:58.250
  • there's just something
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:07:59.260
  • inside of me God shifts.
  • 00:07:59.260 --> 00:08:01.150
  • You see something different.
  • 00:08:01.150 --> 00:08:02.200
  • You see the church mobilized.
  • 00:08:02.200 --> 00:08:04.000
  • You see women just coming
  • 00:08:04.000 --> 00:08:05.070
  • around each other.
  • 00:08:05.070 --> 00:08:06.100
  • Not only for people
  • 00:08:06.100 --> 00:08:07.090
  • in their world,
  • 00:08:07.090 --> 00:08:08.100
  • - Bobbie: So, Father in heaven,
  • 00:08:12.230 --> 00:08:13.190
  • we love you.
  • 00:08:13.190 --> 00:08:14.150
  • And we just thank you
  • 00:08:14.150 --> 00:08:15.120
  • for this amazing opportunity.
  • 00:08:15.120 --> 00:08:16.010
  • as women are gathering
  • 00:08:18.030 --> 00:08:18.180
  • and lining up
  • 00:08:18.180 --> 00:08:19.100
  • and coming into their seats,
  • 00:08:19.100 --> 00:08:20.140
  • so you see every
  • 00:08:20.140 --> 00:08:21.180
  • single one of them.
  • 00:08:21.180 --> 00:08:22.190
  • And Lord Jesus,
  • 00:08:22.190 --> 00:08:23.230
  • this is actually not about us.
  • 00:08:23.230 --> 00:08:24.290
  • This is about you and them.
  • 00:08:24.290 --> 00:08:26.290
  • And so, Father God, again,
  • 00:08:26.290 --> 00:08:28.150
  • with humility of heart,
  • 00:08:28.150 --> 00:08:29.130
  • we thank you
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:30.120
  • for the opportunity.
  • 00:08:30.120 --> 00:08:31.090
  • We do not take it lightly.
  • 00:08:31.090 --> 00:08:32.210
  • And Lord, I pray
  • 00:08:32.210 --> 00:08:33.180
  • that you will come
  • 00:08:33.180 --> 00:08:34.200
  • and you will presence yourself
  • 00:08:34.200 --> 00:08:35.180
  • in a most profound way.
  • 00:08:35.180 --> 00:08:37.110
  • So, Lord, we commit
  • 00:08:37.110 --> 00:08:38.200
  • this night to you.
  • 00:08:38.200 --> 00:08:39.190
  • And I ask, Father,
  • 00:08:39.190 --> 00:08:40.170
  • that you would just anoint us
  • 00:08:40.170 --> 00:08:41.160
  • and enable us, Father God,
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:43.020
  • and strengthen us.
  • 00:08:43.020 --> 00:08:44.120
  • We pray for girls
  • 00:08:44.120 --> 00:08:45.120
  • that are in the room who need
  • 00:08:45.120 --> 00:08:46.120
  • to awaken to your love
  • 00:08:46.120 --> 00:08:47.160
  • and your kindness
  • 00:08:47.160 --> 00:08:48.160
  • and your salvation.
  • 00:08:48.160 --> 00:08:49.180
  • And we ask, Father,
  • 00:08:49.180 --> 00:08:50.140
  • that you would
  • 00:08:50.140 --> 00:08:51.150
  • save them tonight.
  • 00:08:51.150 --> 00:08:52.130
  • Father God, begin a salvation
  • 00:08:52.130 --> 00:08:54.020
  • journey in them.
  • 00:08:54.020 --> 00:08:55.100
  • And Lord, we give you all
  • 00:08:55.100 --> 00:08:56.070
  • the praise and glory, in Jesus'
  • 00:08:56.070 --> 00:08:57.240
  • name, and everyone said--
  • 00:08:57.240 --> 00:08:59.010
  • - Bobbie: Amen, hallelujah.
  • 00:09:01.030 --> 00:09:02.140
  • - male: Before I began,
  • 00:09:09.220 --> 00:09:12.110
  • - male: And then in a breath,
  • 00:09:27.120 --> 00:09:30.120
  • Made in my image,
  • 00:09:34.210 --> 00:09:37.180
  • - male: Each of you I made free
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:57.160
  • And you chose...
  • 00:10:02.130 --> 00:10:05.130
  • - male: But I will
  • 00:10:19.100 --> 00:10:20.190
  • - Bobbie: When we say,
  • 00:10:25.070 --> 00:10:26.240
  • "Be found in the mystery,"
  • 00:10:26.240 --> 00:10:28.140
  • what does that actually mean?
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:31.070
  • The Father chose not
  • 00:10:33.130 --> 00:10:35.090
  • to abandon us.
  • 00:10:35.090 --> 00:10:36.270
  • In the dark you lift my eyes
  • 00:10:37.140 --> 00:10:40.140
  • for this journey
  • 00:10:40.140 --> 00:10:41.260
  • you designed
  • 00:10:41.260 --> 00:10:44.120
  • - Bobbie: As it says
  • 00:10:44.120 --> 00:10:45.040
  • in Colossians, "All the broken
  • 00:10:45.040 --> 00:10:47.000
  • and dislocated pieces of the
  • 00:10:47.000 --> 00:10:48.110
  • universe, people and things,
  • 00:10:48.110 --> 00:10:50.110
  • get properly fixed and then fit
  • 00:10:50.110 --> 00:10:52.190
  • harmony through Christ's
  • 00:10:54.210 --> 00:10:56.110
  • poured out blood on the cross."
  • 00:10:56.110 --> 00:10:58.180
  • If that is not the gospel,
  • 00:10:58.180 --> 00:10:59.240
  • if that is not the mystery
  • 00:10:59.240 --> 00:11:01.030
  • of the ages, then I don't
  • 00:11:01.030 --> 00:11:02.040
  • Oh, you reign in my soul.
  • 00:11:05.070 --> 00:11:08.070
  • Oh, you reign in my soul.

  • - Bobbie: I find it
  • 00:11:14.260 --> 00:11:15.200
  • overwhelming that this God,
  • 00:11:15.200 --> 00:11:17.260
  • this God of the universe,
  • 00:11:17.260 --> 00:11:19.080
  • has never erred
  • 00:11:19.080 --> 00:11:20.130
  • in his pursuit of us.
  • 00:11:20.130 --> 00:11:22.140
  • He is closer than we know.
  • 00:11:22.140 --> 00:11:24.120
  • You don't need the band.
  • 00:11:24.120 --> 00:11:25.220
  • You don't need lights.
  • 00:11:25.220 --> 00:11:26.280
  • You just need a hungry heart,
  • 00:11:26.280 --> 00:11:28.020

  • It felt amazing.
  • 00:11:43.140 --> 00:11:44.270
  • I think the loveliest thing is
  • 00:11:44.270 --> 00:11:45.250
  • that, like, so many, I think,
  • 00:11:45.250 --> 00:11:47.160
  • have responded to Christ.
  • 00:11:47.160 --> 00:11:49.230

  • to preach the gospel,
  • 00:11:53.040 --> 00:11:54.190

  • - DawnChere Wilkerson: Before
  • 00:12:10.240 --> 00:12:11.120
  • you can carry a message of hope
  • 00:12:11.120 --> 00:12:12.280
  • to the world, you've gotta hold
  • 00:12:12.280 --> 00:12:14.230
  • the message for yourself.
  • 00:12:14.230 --> 00:12:16.250
  • He sees you in your misery.

  • as you cry out to God.
  • 00:12:21.030 --> 00:12:22.210
  • He is concerned about you.
  • 00:12:22.210 --> 00:12:24.260
  • - DawnChere: For the last
  • 00:12:42.120 --> 00:12:43.030
  • 7 years we've been
  • 00:12:43.030 --> 00:12:44.030
  • on an infertility journey.
  • 00:12:44.030 --> 00:12:45.170
  • My approach to this season
  • 00:12:45.170 --> 00:12:48.120
  • as every season.
  • 00:12:50.180 --> 00:12:52.150
  • Because even in moments
  • 00:12:52.150 --> 00:12:53.130
  • of grief, I know who I am
  • 00:12:53.140 --> 00:12:56.140
  • because of who he is.
  • 00:12:56.140 --> 00:12:58.250
  • I know who I am, and I know that
  • 00:12:58.250 --> 00:13:01.210
  • he has a purpose and a plan
  • 00:13:01.210 --> 00:13:03.010
  • for my life because
  • 00:13:03.010 --> 00:13:04.050
  • Pain and seasons of lack and
  • 00:13:08.190 --> 00:13:10.270
  • seasons of grief can make you
  • 00:13:10.270 --> 00:13:12.220
  • feel like you're in exile.
  • 00:13:12.220 --> 00:13:15.170
  • But you're not.
  • 00:13:15.170 --> 00:13:16.290
  • As you trust God, you
  • 00:13:16.290 --> 00:13:18.180
  • go forward into God's calling
  • 00:13:18.180 --> 00:13:20.130
  • for your life.
  • 00:13:20.130 --> 00:13:21.180
  • You go forward into the promised
  • 00:13:21.180 --> 00:13:23.020
  • land that he has in front
  • 00:13:23.020 --> 00:13:24.070
  • of you.
  • 00:13:24.070 --> 00:13:25.110
  • And God will make
  • 00:13:25.110 --> 00:13:26.150
  • God the Father looks at you.
  • 00:13:30.120 --> 00:13:31.270
  • He's come from heaven to earth

  • to tell you, "I am with you."
  • 00:13:36.010 --> 00:13:39.010
  • Let him whisper it
  • 00:13:39.010 --> 00:13:40.010
  • into your spirit today.
  • 00:13:40.010 --> 00:13:41.280
  • - Bobbie: Brian and I are very
  • 00:13:52.060 --> 00:13:52.280
  • mindful of the vision carriers
  • 00:13:52.280 --> 00:13:54.030
  • in our church.
  • 00:13:54.030 --> 00:13:55.120
  • Like, the everyday people,
  • 00:13:55.120 --> 00:13:56.110
  • the, you know,
  • 00:13:56.110 --> 00:13:57.110
  • just the beautiful souls,
  • 00:13:57.110 --> 00:13:58.080
  • men and women who get it.
  • 00:13:58.080 --> 00:14:00.080
  • Vision is alive in them.
  • 00:14:00.080 --> 00:14:01.270
  • And they carry it,
  • 00:14:01.270 --> 00:14:02.180
  • and they labor beautifully.
  • 00:14:02.180 --> 00:14:04.030
  • You can't execute something
  • 00:14:04.030 --> 00:14:05.080
  • of this degree on your own.
  • 00:14:05.080 --> 00:14:08.020
  • We need each other.
  • 00:14:08.020 --> 00:14:09.080
  • I'm so honored that God
  • 00:14:09.080 --> 00:14:11.260
  • entrusted what we call,
  • 00:14:11.260 --> 00:14:13.200
  • "The God whisper."
  • 00:14:13.200 --> 00:14:14.190
  • I'm so honored that he would
  • 00:14:14.190 --> 00:14:15.210
  • allow me to hear that.
  • 00:14:15.210 --> 00:14:17.160
  • I'm gonna get emotional now.
  • 00:14:17.180 --> 00:14:20.180
  • But I'm very aware, and I know
  • 00:14:20.180 --> 00:14:22.140
  • I write about it in the book,
  • 00:14:22.140 --> 00:14:23.140
  • that it's like he spoke to me
  • 00:14:23.140 --> 00:14:25.040
  • way back and he said,
  • 00:14:25.040 --> 00:14:26.060
  • "You know what?
  • 00:14:26.060 --> 00:14:27.020
  • I know you can't do this
  • 00:14:27.020 --> 00:14:28.020
  • on your own.
  • 00:14:28.020 --> 00:14:29.000
  • Therefore, I'm gonna bring
  • 00:14:29.000 --> 00:14:29.270
  • people around you who are gonna
  • 00:14:29.270 --> 00:14:30.230
  • help you to carry this."
  • 00:14:30.230 --> 00:14:31.260
  • You know, because he knew
  • 00:14:31.260 --> 00:14:32.250
  • the magnitude of the women
  • 00:14:32.250 --> 00:14:34.030
  • he wanted to reach.
  • 00:14:34.030 --> 00:14:35.170
  • And he knew I didn't know how
  • 00:14:35.170 --> 00:14:37.020
  • to do that in the natural.
  • 00:14:37.020 --> 00:14:38.150
  • And he said,
  • 00:14:38.150 --> 00:14:39.200
  • "So you get the inspiration,
  • 00:14:39.200 --> 00:14:40.220
  • and I'll bring people around you
  • 00:14:40.220 --> 00:14:41.290
  • who are actually gonna help you
  • 00:14:41.290 --> 00:14:43.060
  • carry out that vision."
  • 00:14:43.060 --> 00:14:44.130
  • - Carl: Most of the people
  • 00:14:44.130 --> 00:14:45.170
  • who get credit for conferences
  • 00:14:45.170 --> 00:14:46.200
  • are the people who speak
  • 00:14:46.200 --> 00:14:48.050
  • or the people that already
  • 00:14:48.050 --> 00:14:49.250
  • have a name that you know.
  • 00:14:49.250 --> 00:14:51.130
  • And that's just not who
  • 00:14:51.130 --> 00:14:52.130
  • our church is.
  • 00:14:52.130 --> 00:14:53.140
  • Our church are the, literally,
  • 00:14:53.140 --> 00:14:54.290
  • hundreds of people
  • 00:14:54.290 --> 00:14:55.270
  • who take vacation time,
  • 00:14:55.270 --> 00:14:57.070
  • who could do anything
  • 00:14:57.070 --> 00:14:58.130
  • and instead they're stacking
  • 00:14:58.130 --> 00:14:59.240
  • chairs, doing envelopes,
  • 00:14:59.240 --> 00:15:02.010
  • decorating something
  • 00:15:02.010 --> 00:15:02.290
  • that somebody might not really
  • 00:15:02.290 --> 00:15:04.020
  • see or appreciate.
  • 00:15:04.020 --> 00:15:05.190
  • And it's just--
  • 00:15:05.190 --> 00:15:06.230
  • I've never been prouder.
  • 00:15:06.230 --> 00:15:08.000
  • Like, if the conference
  • 00:15:08.000 --> 00:15:09.080
  • was great,
  • 00:15:09.080 --> 00:15:10.130
  • the volunteers are greater.
  • 00:15:10.130 --> 00:15:11.270
  • So as excited as we are about
  • 00:15:11.270 --> 00:15:13.130
  • packed auditoriums
  • 00:15:13.130 --> 00:15:14.160
  • and people getting saved,
  • 00:15:14.160 --> 00:15:16.180
  • it's the goal, it's the people
  • 00:15:16.180 --> 00:15:18.210
  • who make it work that brings us,
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:21.080
  • I think, the most joy.
  • 00:15:21.080 --> 00:15:22.240
  • - Laura Lentz: It's amazing
  • 00:15:22.240 --> 00:15:23.200
  • to see our teams really get
  • 00:15:23.200 --> 00:15:24.210
  • on the page and understand
  • 00:15:24.210 --> 00:15:25.210
  • what we're doing,
  • 00:15:25.210 --> 00:15:26.220
  • and to see their eyes opened
  • 00:15:26.220 --> 00:15:27.270
  • to such a bigger world
  • 00:15:27.270 --> 00:15:29.020
  • of what could be.
  • 00:15:29.020 --> 00:15:30.260
  • It's overwhelming, you know,
  • 00:15:30.260 --> 00:15:32.150
  • it's beautiful.
  • 00:15:32.150 --> 00:15:33.290
  • - Elizabeth: So this is
  • 00:15:33.290 --> 00:15:34.290
  • our first Colour in the States.
  • 00:15:34.290 --> 00:15:35.290
  • We don't really have
  • 00:15:35.290 --> 00:15:36.280
  • a lot of other volunteers
  • 00:15:36.280 --> 00:15:37.250
  • from other campuses yet.
  • 00:15:37.250 --> 00:15:38.240
  • But I'm sure that will happen.
  • 00:15:38.240 --> 00:15:40.260
  • And all of these volunteers have
  • 00:15:40.260 --> 00:15:42.100
  • taken time off of work
  • 00:15:42.100 --> 00:15:43.200
  • to be here today and tomorrow.
  • 00:15:43.200 --> 00:15:46.060

  • here in the city.
  • 00:15:48.250 --> 00:15:49.250

  • 00:15:49.250 --> 00:15:50.260
  • that the other women
  • 00:15:50.260 --> 00:15:51.260

  • And you can get tired,

  • But we haven't arrived
  • 00:16:32.140 --> 00:16:33.170

  • in Madison Square Garden
  • 00:16:34.180 --> 00:16:35.160

  • 00:17:04.140 --> 00:17:05.150
  • time and again,
  • 00:17:05.150 --> 00:17:06.110
  • of women who encounter
  • 00:17:06.110 --> 00:17:07.100
  • God through the creative moments
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:08.070
  • at conference.
  • 00:17:08.070 --> 00:17:09.250
  • The opener starts
  • 00:17:09.250 --> 00:17:10.260
  • to talk about what happens
  • 00:17:10.260 --> 00:17:12.010
  • when we choose our own way.
  • 00:17:12.010 --> 00:17:13.020
  • And there's, like,
  • 00:17:13.020 --> 00:17:14.020
  • lightning and thunder,
  • 00:17:14.020 --> 00:17:15.030
  • and leaves fall from the ceiling
  • 00:17:15.030 --> 00:17:16.160
  • to kind of indicate the storm.
  • 00:17:16.160 --> 00:17:18.130
  • And I remember in Sydney
  • 00:17:18.130 --> 00:17:19.270
  • on the first time we did that,
  • 00:17:19.270 --> 00:17:21.070
  • the leaf team,
  • 00:17:21.070 --> 00:17:22.150
  • which is a real thing.
  • 00:17:22.150 --> 00:17:23.160
  • They stand up in the balconies
  • 00:17:23.160 --> 00:17:24.170
  • and they drop leaves.
  • 00:17:24.170 --> 00:17:25.240
  • They were praying that that
  • 00:17:25.240 --> 00:17:27.070
  • little token would actually lead
  • 00:17:27.070 --> 00:17:29.050
  • people to the Lord.
  • 00:17:29.050 --> 00:17:30.210
  • one of the new Christians guys
  • 00:17:32.230 --> 00:17:33.170
  • comes up and he says,
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:34.190
  • "I just wanna tell you a story."
  • 00:17:34.190 --> 00:17:35.290
  • Said, "There was a lady
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:36.270
  • who came into church tonight
  • 00:17:36.270 --> 00:17:38.000
  • and she doesn't know Jesus.
  • 00:17:38.000 --> 00:17:39.240
  • Then when the leaves fell,
  • 00:17:39.240 --> 00:17:41.070
  • she remembered a dream that
  • 00:17:41.070 --> 00:17:42.080
  • she had.
  • 00:17:42.080 --> 00:17:43.130
  • And in this dream God had been
  • 00:17:43.130 --> 00:17:44.240
  • standing opposite her."
  • 00:17:44.240 --> 00:17:46.120
  • Now, she's not a Christian
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:47.160
  • so just remembers that God
  • 00:17:47.160 --> 00:17:50.000
  • is speaking to her in a dream
  • 00:17:50.000 --> 00:17:51.180
  • when the leaf falls.
  • 00:17:51.180 --> 00:17:53.010
  • And so she starts crying.
  • 00:17:53.010 --> 00:17:54.130
  • And from that moment
  • 00:17:54.130 --> 00:17:55.110
  • until the very end of the night
  • 00:17:55.110 --> 00:17:56.100
  • she was just in tears
  • 00:17:56.100 --> 00:17:57.110
  • and overwhelmed by the kindness
  • 00:17:57.110 --> 00:17:58.260
  • of God that brought
  • 00:17:58.260 --> 00:17:59.260
  • her to the church.
  • 00:17:59.260 --> 00:18:01.280
  • And actually, when the salvation
  • 00:18:01.280 --> 00:18:03.010
  • altar call was given,
  • 00:18:03.010 --> 00:18:04.020
  • she was the first
  • 00:18:04.020 --> 00:18:05.020
  • with her hand up,
  • 00:18:05.020 --> 00:18:06.000
  • and she went forward.
  • 00:18:06.000 --> 00:18:07.000
  • And we laughed as a team
  • 00:18:07.000 --> 00:18:07.270
  • 'cause we went,
  • 00:18:07.270 --> 00:18:08.250
  • "Who would've known
  • 00:18:08.250 --> 00:18:09.250
  • that a leaf could play such
  • 00:18:09.250 --> 00:18:10.240
  • a significant part in somebody's

  • - Bobbie: Prayer
  • 00:18:29.090 --> 00:18:30.080
  • is the greatest weapon
  • 00:18:30.080 --> 00:18:31.090
  • that we have,
  • 00:18:31.090 --> 00:18:32.100
  • good old-fashioned prayer
  • 00:18:32.100 --> 00:18:34.250
  • that wears the devil down
  • 00:18:34.250 --> 00:18:37.010
  • and makes a way

  • - Bobbie: When the women pray,
  • 00:18:54.210 --> 00:18:56.070
  • - Bobbie: I believe godly women
  • 00:19:26.130 --> 00:19:28.050
  • can disarm a world
  • 00:19:28.050 --> 00:19:29.290

  • his church anew and afresh
  • 00:19:53.190 --> 00:19:55.130
  • to the power of what sits
  • 00:19:55.130 --> 00:19:56.240
  • I felt God say to me,
  • 00:20:00.000 --> 00:20:01.210
  • I felt him just whisper
  • 00:20:01.210 --> 00:20:02.170
  • in my ear and say, "Bobbie,
  • 00:20:02.170 --> 00:20:04.010
  • let prayer do the work.
  • 00:20:04.010 --> 00:20:06.050
  • Let prayer do
  • 00:20:06.050 --> 00:20:07.070
  • the heavy lifting."

  • 00:20:14.130 --> 00:20:15.090
  • we can draw lines in the sand
  • 00:20:15.090 --> 00:20:17.220
  • and say, "No more"?
  • 00:20:17.220 --> 00:20:19.210
  • Are you willing in your own life
  • 00:20:19.210 --> 00:20:21.100
  • to reimagine the parameters
  • 00:20:21.100 --> 00:20:23.090
  • of your life
  • 00:20:23.090 --> 00:20:24.110
  • with new perspective
  • 00:20:24.110 --> 00:20:25.150
  • because you are gonna get
  • 00:20:25.150 --> 00:20:26.290
  • a revelation of prayer

  • - Helen: The Colour story is so
  • 00:20:52.220 --> 00:20:53.210
  • much bigger than what happened
  • 00:20:53.210 --> 00:20:56.140
  • in Sydney 20 years ago.
  • 00:20:56.140 --> 00:20:58.110
  • It's pretty exciting to see how
  • 00:20:58.110 --> 00:21:00.020
  • now it's had a global impact,
  • 00:21:00.020 --> 00:21:02.020
  • and certainly, personally,
  • 00:21:02.020 --> 00:21:03.250
  • it has probably,
  • 00:21:03.250 --> 00:21:04.280
  • as a woman in ministry,
  • 00:21:04.280 --> 00:21:06.200
  • been the signature thing
  • 00:21:06.200 --> 00:21:08.030
  • that has helped me dream
  • 00:21:08.030 --> 00:21:09.080
  • and shape and create a reality
  • 00:21:09.080 --> 00:21:11.230
  • that I think women do know that
  • 00:21:11.230 --> 00:21:13.220
  • they can make the world a better
  • 00:21:13.220 --> 00:21:14.250
  • place if they'll step into
  • 00:21:14.250 --> 00:21:16.030
  • what God's called them to be.

  • 00:21:19.010 --> 00:21:19.250
  • women gathered together
  • 00:21:19.250 --> 00:21:21.030
  • around the cause of Christ,
  • 00:21:21.030 --> 00:21:22.220
  • I realize that there is
  • 00:21:22.220 --> 00:21:23.200
  • truly hope for the world.
  • 00:21:23.200 --> 00:21:24.180
  • And it is just like that,
  • 00:21:24.180 --> 00:21:26.100
  • kind of a shot in my arm
  • 00:21:26.100 --> 00:21:27.260
  • once a year to go, "No, no, no,
  • 00:21:27.260 --> 00:21:29.040
  • we're doing the right thing,
  • 00:21:29.040 --> 00:21:30.060
  • for the planet.

  • And his women are
  • 00:21:32.290 --> 00:21:33.290
  • this massive part of it."

  • refreshed, refueled,
  • 00:21:42.290 --> 00:21:44.110
  • and just understanding, again,

  • that I am a daughter of the King
  • 00:21:45.210 --> 00:21:46.280
  • and that I have something
  • 00:21:46.280 --> 00:21:47.250
  • significant to bring
  • 00:21:47.250 --> 00:21:48.240

  • 00:21:50.150 --> 00:21:51.140
  • ahead for all of us.
  • 00:21:51.140 --> 00:21:52.170
  • This movement
  • 00:21:52.170 --> 00:21:53.150
  • is for grandmothers,

  • and it's for mothers,
  • 00:21:54.130 --> 00:21:55.090
  • and it's for children,
  • 00:21:55.090 --> 00:21:56.090
  • and it's for single women.
  • 00:21:56.090 --> 00:21:57.080
  • And it's for married women.
  • 00:21:57.080 --> 00:21:58.100
  • And it's for single again women.
  • 00:21:58.100 --> 00:21:59.290
  • And if you are a female,
  • 00:21:59.290 --> 00:22:01.220
  • then you know what?
  • 00:22:01.220 --> 00:22:02.210
  • - Carl: More than what you see
  • 00:22:04.230 --> 00:22:05.250
  • on a stage, it's about
  • 00:22:05.250 --> 00:22:07.060
  • the stages maybe decades away
  • 00:22:07.060 --> 00:22:09.010
  • that you'll never see.
  • 00:22:09.010 --> 00:22:10.010
  • there that will be because
  • 00:22:12.030 --> 00:22:14.090
  • Colour is about a legacy.
  • 00:22:14.090 --> 00:22:15.260
  • So my daughters sitting there at
  • 00:22:15.260 --> 00:22:17.060
  • 11 and 9 years old, you know,
  • 00:22:17.060 --> 00:22:19.130
  • 10 years from now,
  • 00:22:19.130 --> 00:22:20.130
  • maybe they're leading that.
  • 00:22:20.130 --> 00:22:21.130
  • And there's another 11 year old
  • 00:22:21.130 --> 00:22:22.140
  • in there going, "Wow,
  • 00:22:22.140 --> 00:22:23.160
  • maybe my call is brighter
  • 00:22:23.160 --> 00:22:24.240

  • only one goal,

  • and that goal is Jesus.
  • 00:22:48.120 --> 00:22:49.220
  • It means that you're still

  • from strength to strength,

  • - Laura Toggs: This year there
  • 00:23:56.140 --> 00:23:57.180
  • was just a different level of,
  • 00:23:57.180 --> 00:23:59.030
  • like, vulnerability.
  • 00:23:59.030 --> 00:24:00.120
  • Not just from us,
  • 00:24:00.120 --> 00:24:01.160
  • but I think from the women
  • 00:24:01.160 --> 00:24:02.150
  • who are attending.
  • 00:24:02.150 --> 00:24:03.160
  • And it's like they were,
  • 00:24:03.160 --> 00:24:04.170
  • like, this, you know,
  • 00:24:04.170 --> 00:24:05.150
  • just open-handed
  • 00:24:05.150 --> 00:24:06.130
  • with their hearts,
  • 00:24:06.130 --> 00:24:07.140
  • and just let God do his work.
  • 00:24:07.140 --> 00:24:09.050
  • And I think that's so beautiful.
  • 00:24:09.050 --> 00:24:12.030
  • - female: It's been, by far,
  • 00:24:12.030 --> 00:24:13.250
  • the most amazing thing
  • 00:24:13.250 --> 00:24:14.210
  • I've ever experienced.

  • - female: Words really
  • 00:24:16.100 --> 00:24:17.090
  • don't describe what happens.
  • 00:24:17.090 --> 00:24:18.070
  • You have to be here
  • 00:24:18.070 --> 00:24:19.050
  • to experience it.
